What’s best for my business – flexibility or a pre-agreed package?
This autumn, Get Ahead has introduced a new range of social media packages to make it easier for busy business owners to access our services and get the right support. However, Get Ahead’s main focus is always on our clients: we want to provide you with the right services for your individual needs. In other words, you might benefit from one of our packages…or you might need a flexible service designed around your specific needs.
In this blog, we compare packages and flexible services and consider what sort of business they suit best.
Social media packages are great for…
Businesses who need to budget
If you’re on a tight budget, or you just need to plan ahead and know what your outgoings will be each month, a package is a great solution. Each package has a pre-agreed price tag, so you’ll know exactly what it will cost you and exactly what you will get in return.
Businesses who struggle to be consistent on social media
It’s easy to say that you’ll do your own social media, and promise to block off time each month to schedule all your posts. But if you’re continually making and breaking these resolutions, outsourcing your social media in a regular way is the best way to ensure you have a consistent online presence. A package is a great solution – you’ll have peace of mind knowing your social media is taken care of.
Flexible social media management is great for…
If you’ve recently started up your business, you might still be experimenting with different social media platforms to see where you get the most traction. Do you hope to convert customers then and there, or will you use social media to establish your expertise or create a community? While you’re testing the water, flexible support adjusted to your needs is the best solution.
Businesses that have a very varied workload
Perhaps your business is seasonal and this month, you have plenty of time to do your own social media. But in the future, when your busiest period comes round, you’ll be looking to outsource your social media and have one less thing on your massive to-do list. If that sounds like you, you might find it better to book your social media support as you need it, instead of signing up to a regular package.
Talk to your local branch of Get Ahead to find the best social media solution
We hope that by offering the choice of either a package deal or a flexible service, we can meet the needs of every one of our clients. If you’re still not sure, or you need services that fall outside our packages, talk your local regional director. They’ll listen to your needs and suggest the ways the Get Ahead team can help you best.
We’d love to know whether packages or bespoke services work best for you – why not post this blog on social media and share your own views?
