    Hey BHW!

    I just started a Social media management service. I put up a facebook page and branded it and started making posts to it.

    I only need $1,000/month to equal half of my work income, which should only be 3-5 clients around $2-300/month each. That's my goal. I like to keep things simple. So any advice on having a simple way to manage clients and reports would be helpful.

    Also, what are the bare minimum of tools you'd use for social management & growth? I'll be focusing on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

    Again, all I have is a facebook page so i'll have to convert them from there. Any tips or advice on gaining clients through facebook would be greatly appreciated! :)

    Thanks in advance guys!

    do you best to automate it..
    When you get a client always add analytics to their website to show that you are driving traffic
    Also 200/300 a month is low bro. See what other smm consultants are charging in your area

    I believe you can boost a post through Facebook for about $6 or so. You can target it to just people in your area. At least it gets it in front of them. FB is actually pretty economical for local marketing online. I tried it (boosting a post) a couple of times. I sold a couple of baby blankets I made like that - made $40 in an hour. But then I got bored with making baby blankets and decided to do something else. Anyway, you can try that.

    Thanks for your input guys. I thought about making a few promoted posts. Since one client would pay for it. Also yes 2-300 seems low. But I'm focusing strictly on SMM. I'll check a few decent sized companies in my area and let you guys know their rates. My goal is to eventually quit my job, then use the SMM service to pay bills & fund other IM ventures. :)
