Michelle Proffitt’s Session(s):
Small agencies have even smaller teams with limited budgets. Maybe you’re a one-person show; charged with responding to media calls and designing flyers, AND posting to Facebook. But, how can you possibly write news releases, attend press conferences, reply to thousands of comments and finally have something creative to tweet on Twitter? You’re probably thinking there aren’t enough hours in the day…
With a few tools, a plan, and a little creativity, you (or your team) can consistently put out creative content without reinventing the wheel. A strategic social media manager works smarter, not harder.
