Even if you *love* the role of managing your school's social media, you've got lots of other things on your plate and there's no way you can stay as current as you'd like. Lean on us to provide the guidance or execution that gets you closer to the perfect balance of social media practices for your goals, market, and school culture.

Boosting posts on Facebook is the tip of the social media advertising iceberg, as these platforms continue to build out sophisticated targeting, placement, and feature options.
There are powerful new ways to target the right audience at the right time, generate more leads, increase website traffic, improve brand recognition, and prove ROI. We’ll help you make the most of your online ad spending with data-backed decisions about where, when, and how to post on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram, while at the same time keeping your school current on social media and helping drive traffic back to your website.
How many hours a week do you spend on social media for the school? Do you have better things to do?
For a fraction of the price of a dedicated social media specialist (and without the high turnover typical to these positions), we’ll do the blocking and tackling that take up so much of your time. You remain in control while we execute the majority of your social media work.
Wondering About Cost? We thought so.
Like every consulting engagement, pricing will depend on the scope and scale of the work.
