The Cost of Social Media

Social media has become a huge phenomenon – the biggest since the creation of the internet. 100s of millions of people take part every day around the world. And it wasn’t long before businesses, large and small became involved.

How about your business?

When companies like Dell, Apple, Microsoft, IBM and Amazon invest a large portion of their marketing budget into a process, you can be sure that there is opportunity there and money to made. These companies can choose to put their marketing dollars wherever they think best – they choose Business Social Media.

Now is the time to take advantage of this no cost – or low cost, if you decide to use professional help – local and global business opportunity.

– Attract new customers
– Connect with business partners and associates
– Attract your ideal client to connect with you
– Stop making the cold calls that you hate

How much is business social media costing you? How much is your time worth?


The costs of NOT having a presence on social media sites far outweighs the cost of your investment. It is predicted that those businesses who are not using social media will be OUT of business within 5 years. Are you willing to risk everything? Social Media does require an investment – your time. So how much would using social media cost you?

You have an hourly rate that you earn in your business. (Don’t know what it is? You need to know that figure!). Multiply that by 1 hour per day invested in building your business through social media, 5 days per week, 4 weeks per month:

Let’s say your hourly rate is $25

$25 x 5 days x 4 weeks = $500 per month
You could afford to hire us to do your Social Media management at the Silver level package – and SAVE $200 on what it would cost you to do it yourself!

What if your hourly rate is $50?
$50 x 5 days x 4 weeks = $1000
Hire us at the Elite level package and save $200 each and every month on what it would cost you to do it yourself!

Or $100 per hour?
$100 x 5 days x 4 weeks = $2000
Hire us at the Celebrity level package and save $500 on what it would cost you to do it yourself!

If your hourly rate is $100 or more, there is no question that you should have a Social Media Manager. If not, you’re just throwing money away and time that could be better spent elsewhere in your business.

Social Media Management is more affordable than you think. More affordable than paying an employee to do the work. Let the professionals help you – and save you money. Call us today at 813-767-9290 to find out how we can customize a package to suit your needs.
