Hello, I’m Lauren Michelle Kinsey, “The Social Media Marketing Coach” and founder of Show Up Online Columbus.
Show Up Online Columbus is the social media consulting company I founded in August of 2013, for the purpose of giving social media coaching to very small (under 25 employees) brick and mortar business owners in Columbus, Ohio. I specialize in helping these business owners craft a social media strategy for their company, using the most affordable tools possible.
You might have had an experience where an online marketing company, or a social media expert, worked with you in such a way that you felt dependent on them. I’m different. It is my goal to help you become independent. I want to help launch you in the direction of mastering social media yourself, and being able to safely and effectively delegate it to others.
If you’re looking for someone to do website design, graphic design, or search engine optimization, I am not that person. However, I can help you find someone. I know a lot of local online marketing experts. I can also point you in the direction of people who do social media assistance online or on the phone.
If you’re looking for someone to help you understand how to use social media for your small business, you’re on a tight budget, and you have a brick and mortar business in the city of Columbus with under 25 employees, I’m an excellent choice. I will also gladly tell you about people who are doing work similar to what I’m doing, and you can decide for yourself who you’d like to work with.
Here’s what I do-
I evaluate small business owner’s online presence and show them where weaknesses and vulnerabilities need to be addressed.
I teach small business owners about what resources are available for them to easily and affordably find answers to their urgent social media questions.
I work with small business owners to craft a social media marketing strategy that will work for them.
I teach small business owners how Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Vine, Youtube, Google+, and Tumblr can help them succeed.
I teach small business owners how to use affordable and easy to learn tools like PicMonkey and Canva to create images to share on social media.
I teach small business owners how to blog, or how to get affordable blog content created for them.
I help small business owners think outside of the box about the best ways to affordably and consistently tell their story online.
Here’s my experience-
I began blogging in 2008 and through that process I learned the basics of content marketing/social media marketing. In 2013 I began helping friends who are small business owners use social media to promote their small businesses. These friends encouraged me to begin charging for my services, so in August of 2013 I began working as a social media marketing consultant. In January of 2014 I was brought on as a paid social media consultant for a Spring Term Full Session Online Marketing Class for Business at the Columbus College of Art and Design. Through the process of working at CCAD I’ve formed connections with many talented people. This has added depth to my consulting work with local business owners, allowing me to offer more resources to my clients.
