Can Architects really find more work through Social Media Marketing?
Hello, my name is Jeff Echols. Welcome to Architect of the Internet.
I’m here to tell you that Social Media IS real.
I’ve been working in the Digital Marketing space since 2006; long before Facebook was available to anyone but college students.
The one accomplishment I’m most proud of is the fact that I developed and executed a Social Media strategy for a small, startup Architecture firm in Indianapolis. That strategy can be directly attributed to over $4.25 Million in construction. Not bad for a little three-man firm that started from scratch!
YOU CAN’T DRINK ARCHITECTURE
I know that when people talk about “successful” Social Media you hear a lot about companies like Coca Cola and Red Bull and Starbucks.
Let’s be honest; for most of us those companies are hard to relate to. They have Marketing Departments, Social Media Teams … even Marketing Budgets.
You may not have any of that.
LEVERAGE YOUR CREATIVITY, FIND YOUR IDEAL CLIENT
How can you, the Architect with no Marketing Budget (let alone a Social Media Team) leverage your time and creative talents with Social Media?
That’s why I’m here.
I’ve asked that question.
I’ve struggled with the time management issues.
I’ve dabbled on the Social Networks.
But more importantly,
I’ve learned how to focus and strategize and succeed.
