I will be expanding my Facebook classes and social media seminars to multiple cities throughout the U.S. and I’m looking to hire several people in various locations.
Find and book venues for seminars and classes
Manage all logistics for the event
Market the events through social media, blogging, word of mouth, biz2biz, press releases, etc
Direct attendees to register for the seminars online.
How it works:
I’ll give you a schedule and budget to work with to book the venues and and what type of venue and you go from there. I, of course will also market the event so it’s a win-win.
Pay is based on paid attendees. The more people who show, the more you make. The more seminars you book, the more you make. You will be paid on a percentage structure. If there are 15 paid attendees, you receive 15% of the fee amount. If there are 25 paid attendees, you receive 25%. Bonuses are paid for staying below a budgeted amount on venue and event costs.
Book as many seminars as you can and I can fly to wherever so it has endless potential.
The seminars are a 7 hour day long seminar usually from 8am-4pm that are primarily for business owners or their employees and teaches them everything they need to know about marketing their business via social media. They will learn Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, blogging, Google +, tools, resources, tips and tricks and so much more.
Must be proficient in social media
Must have sales and marketing experience
Must be a people person and actively network in the business community
Must excel in organization
Heavily connected in business community a plus
Social media skills, blogging, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn, is a major plus.
This is a part-time, contracted position.
All the info for classes and seminars is here on my website http://ChandaGunter.com under the “services” tab.
Let me know if you have any questions and if your interested.
As a FREE promotion, I offered on my Facebook page to assess anyone elses page for them if they commented on my post. James Duckett, Technology Services Division Manager for the City of St. George, UT. responded. I have worked for a city department before and understand there are limitations and lots of red tape to do what most companies wouldn’t bat an eye to. So the fact that the city even has an active Facebook page is a huge plus! So lets gets started…
1. No welcome page/landing tab
This is your first impression. A welcome page is your opportunity to get their attention, convey a message, and wow them. No welcome page means new fans land on your wall which, depending on what your last post was, could be boring. Welcome pages are easy to create especially if you are a computer guy who knows HTML or iFrames. But if your not that savvy there are plenty of free applications like wix.com or you can always outsource it to your favorite web guy.
2. Business listing
I wasn’t quite sure how you got the City to be listed as a sports club and actually thought that was cute since St. George is known for its outdoorsy venue of rock climbing, hiking, marathons and triathalons. But hopefully you set up the catagory as a local business/place and then sub category as community or government OR under organization/government organization. Good news is that if you set it up wrong you can always change your category under the “edit page” feature. The name is good and says the city and state in the category line since of course there may be more than one St. George (What? Never!). ;) however it would be even better to have the state listed in the title name.
3. Profile picture
I would suggest using a larger logo for the profile picture. It’s too small to read the super cursive script that says St. George and it just gets lost.
4. About me
List the city’s website first on the “about me” section which will help funnel people over to the city website. Making that link easily accessible is a plus.
5. Wall posts
Fans are unable to post on the wall, limiting the engagement. Many cities do this for a number of reasons such as they, don’t want spam, they don’t have anyone full time to monitor the postings, or they don’t want negative feedback or irrelevant posts. The problem is, the city is alienating it’s fans and citizens by doing so. Social media is about people and talking to those people, not at them. Allow them to talk to you and then listen and respond. If there are negative comments, use it as a PR moment and solve the problem.
6. Use applications
The page is a little boring and could be spruced up with other applications. The city has a ton of information like events, department listings, and other city links. Use iFrame pages to create custom tabs to show a list of common referenced numbers or the events tab for upcoming community events. Connect the city’s Twitter and YouTube pages and create tabs for those as well. Make your Facebook page a secondary site to your website. Maybe even include a monthly Mayor’s address on video to post to YouTube and Facebook.
7. Picture strip
Use your picture strip at the top of the page to your advantage. Any picture you post on your wall gets thrown up there but you can manage those pictures and keep what you want on the strip. Just hover over the pic you don’t want and you will have the option to delete. Use descriptive pictures and logos to tell a story or convey a message.
The good stuff:
1. The name
As I said earlier, the name is good and to the point. City and state in the category line which will differentiate you from other similar cities when users are searching for you.
2. Featured Likes
On the left side of the page is the “featured likes” section. You have used this area well and connected with other departments and partners with the city such as the recreation center, police department, and Art Festival.
3. Good content
Frequent posts with links and detailed information is great! Lots of info coming from the city so get it out there!
4. Info tab
A history of the city gives a little trivia to someone who may not even been looking for it. I like it!
Lots of great pictures from events and around the city, keep em’ coming!
Finally, ask yourself why would anyone look for and then go to the City of St. George’s Facebook page and then add that information. Are they looking for relocation, employment, chamber of commerce, utility department, events, news, phone numbers, the Mayor? Even better…ASK THE FANS.

The concept is simple…The results are legendary.
Ever wondered what the potential was if you could get your company information out to thousands of people in one day?
Step #1. You pick the day
Step #2. I wear a T-shirt with your company logo or whatever your heart desires.
Step #3. I wear the shirt all day (business meeting, networking meeting, grocery shopping, mall, etc.)
Step #4. I take pictures of myself wearing the shirt and post them to my 7 major social networks (reaching a minimum of 5,000 people)
Step #5. I shoot a 1 minute video of myself wearing the shirt promoting your business and post to YouTube and my 7 major social networks.
Step #6. You share the pics and video to your social networks reaching potentially thousands more.
Step #7. Watch the results.
What is the point of social media? To advertise your business? Talk to your friends? Reach the top of Google? Yes, yes, and yes. But there really is so much more to it. The point of social media is to connect. Connect on some level, whether that may be talking to your old high school friends, networking with like minded people in your city or your office, or engaging your audience on your Facebook business page. People are still people and people want to talk to each other. When it comes to using social media for business, connecting with people is key.
I spoke with a good friend of mine today, Mark, who told me about a recent meeting he went to called a “TweetUp”. This was basically a networking meeting for Twitter followers (friends, tweeps, twibes, whatever you want to call them) to get together and discover who is behind the Avatar. I personally found this to be a brilliant concept! Most of us out there have friends on Facebook and Twitter who we really don’t know but maybe would like to get to know better or maybe we already have developed a relationship with this person and we want to meet face to face. (And no, I’m not talking about dating). Think about it in a business sense…Wouldn’t you really like to know who is the “voice and face” behind your favorite business page?
As a business owner, we have the opportunity to be that transparent. We have the opportunity to connect with our fans, followers, and customers in a way never before! We have the opportunity to provide the kind of customer experience that we all want from other businesses.
Talk to your followers. Engage your audience. Listen to their wants and needs. Create an emotional connection. Build relationships.
Don’t hide behind the avatar. You created this business and gained those customers…now go talk to them!
