After months of hard work, Michele Scism and I have released our long-awaited program Social Media Manager Profits (SMMP). We decided to create a program that would not only equip potential social media managers with the skills they need to create a profitable at-home business, but also provide the foundation to help them attract, attain, and retain clients.
We released the program for one week in August and we are delighted with the feedback we've received. The following is guest blog by one determined social media manager in the making... Jennifer Grigg.
“Your money is backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.” These were the words that helped ease me into purchasing a new product I found called Social Media Manager Profits™. This online training course has boosted my career potential and also changed my life journey. The turn-around took only a few months and some intense study, but I do highly recommend it.
In January 2011, I became unemployed and struggled with finding a job. I soon found that I was overqualified for the jobs coming open in this market, but I still continued to go through the interview process again and again. I kept hitting the same frustrating wall until I discovered SMMP.
I watched promo videos of Michele Scism, The Results Lady from DecisiveMinds.com, over and over and wondered, why not? What’s the worst thing that will happen? Finally, I nervously got out my credit card and placed the order. Soon after, I received my information, created a profile and logged in. It was that easy.
The online training was simple to use, very informative and easy to follow. I started with module one and took notes as I went along, watching the bonus videos that were included. By the end of module one, I was thinking “Wow, I can do this!” With my background in traditional marketing, it was a no-brainer.
Each module was time released over a six-week period. At first, I wanted all the modules at once. I quickly realized however that spreading them over the six weeks gave me the opportunity to take notes and properly absorb the information.
When I started learning about social media, I knew instantly it was perfect for me. Social media is all about engaging customers, building a community, and getting people to like you, trust you, and ultimately buy from you. I love connecting with people and when a great marketing campaign comes together, it’s very rewarding to see the ROI and to see people happy – both consumers and businesses.
My experience with the SMMP training has been better than I ever imagined. The training Michele and Rachel Strella, Owner of Strella Social Media, partnered to put together was invaluable. Rachel also provides private coaching sessions for all SMMP members if you think you need it – I did and I really recommend the coaching. It helped answer the questions I had, and I had a pretty long list – everything I heard sparked me to explore the possibilities further.
So while the initial cost was a factor, I was impressed that Michele and Rachel presented the offer that if I didn’t make at least $1,000 in 90 days, they would refund my money...all they asked was that I make an effort. I’m happy to say no refund is required – my business, Social Dragon Marketing, is only a month old, but because of the in-depth SMMP training and coaching I received, I am thrilled to confirm that it has opened doors for me and I signed my first client.
The bottom line is that SMMP is designed to help you succeed. If you are interested in social media, whether to help your existing business or to become a social media manager, I would say it’s a great investment of time and resources. If you just add your own imagination and determination like I did, you’ll be off and running.
