I'm not sure if I'm reaching for the moon to have both a dynamic AND affordable social media person to take over my social media (sojournbox.com), however, I thought what better place to turn, but QB Community!
A bit of what I'm looking for:
+ Manage Instagram/Facebook
+ Possibly manage Mailchimp campaigns
+ Would love them to be Bay Area based (but definitely not a must)
Have any of you attempted to hire out this work? Good experience? Less than good experience? Interns? I would LOVE love LOVE any feedback.
Many thanks in advance!
My firm actually does full social media management including content creation I would love to chat with you more about what you need. Also fun fact I grew up in Richmond, Ca. However, I'm currently located in Long Beach, Ca.

Great to hear from you! How was the holiday rush? I know a few students around UCSC that might be able to help. Moreover, I'd say their personalities match what you're looking for .
What's the grand mission? Maybe that will help us narrow down your perfect candidate.
Hi @jmisunas - glad to hear that QB Community is your go-to place for suggestions on building your business!
Agree with @JamesOng that college students can be an adept and very affordable - possibly free - resource for managing social media accounts. Trading social-media savvy for work experience seems like a pretty good deal to me Email marketing is a bit of different skillset, but if you're willing to invest some time in on-the-job training your successful candidate should be able to do double-duty.
How concerned are you about turnover? Are you looking for short-term help or a longer-term commitment?
I literally just registered on quickbooks with updating a few things to connect to taxes and figured why not look into community for any hints or ideas. I wanted to personally reach out and share with you an amazing point of contact who has been doing this virtually for many successfull businesses over 15 + years. I know without a doubt her costs are a heck of alot more affordable than highering the big names, they are known for what would take the normal person a week to do they complete within couple days and without a doubt they compliment everyone they partner with to make a great fit!
Please let me know if you are interested in reaching out to Melissa - I personally would be honored to introduce the both of you with the confidence on how well you will love her!
Thanks Vox Pop! I would love to learn some more about what services you offer. Can you please email me your price sheet to: firstname.lastname@example.org
So good to hear from you! Yes, I survived the holidays, but things aren't slowing down (a good thing!).
Gosh, yeah, I'd love to be put in touch with anyone you think may be qualified in skills and personality. I guess to say it best of what I'm looking for is to have growth in sales and followers/brand awareness.
I hope you are well and enjoying this rainy week!
Thanks so much for your input and you pose some great quesitons that I hadn't necessarily considered. I think I'm happy to start with short term interns to start the growth and consistency of postings and then could branch out to a long term manager of my social. I'm not afraid to invest some time and training for the right fit! Ultimately, I want it to be mutually beneficial for an intern match.
Thanks so much for your sincere post and offer to help! I'm so grateful for the first hand referral. I've sent you an email.
Being busy is a great problem to have. I can reach out to a few folks in Santa Cruz, I have one friend in mind who is really energetic and would totally vibe with your mission.
The rain is lovely, as long as I am inside. How's Santa Cruz? Have you been to C and C lately? I just had a conversation with Chris via YouTube about the importance of avoiding buzzwords in business - I can't get away from these business conversations.
