Social Media Monday Kick Off! #SocialMediaMonday

social media tag cloud heart shape


It’s the first Monday of 2016! With that being said, today marks the start of my new series on Along Comes Mary: Social Media Monday. Last year, I began to take on clients in need of some social media assistance, & this year I hope to do much more in tutoring & mentoring businesses, bloggers, anyone looking to learn more about social media & bring their presence online.

My goal is to bring you 1-3 posts each month for Social Media Monday with tips & info on an array of popular online platforms (think Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) to help your journey begin. A lot of people are quick to admit they don’t know as much as they would like about social media, especially when it comes to promoting yourself or a business. I would love to help you learn more about social media, & these posts will serve as an introduction to what I teach.


My first Social Media Marketing position was over 6 years ago when I took on the role of SM Manager for Runaway Productions, a thriving independent film company led by film maker (& my friend), Linda Palmer. Back then, MySpace was still ruling the internet, & I brought our ‘friends’ of MySpace up to over 10,000 in under 3 months. While some think such a task would be tedious, I loved it & knew social media was something to take seriously.

Since then, I have done several other similar jobs & of course, launched Along Comes Mary, in 2012. My blog has a following of nearly 10,000 & is rapidly growing by the week. I have also managed social media for such local SoCal businesses including Faces by Fern & Athena Tile & Stone, as well as mentoring several clients to get their feet wet with managing their own outlets.


The past few months have been extremely rewarding for me as I have joined The Los Angeles Womens Theatre Festival as their Social Media Strategist & was just elected onto the Board of Directors for IFWTWA (International Food, Wine & Travel Writers Association), where I am the Director of Social Media.



Do you already have your blog, web-site, social media presence yet have days that it’s all a bit overwhelming? Hire me on your team to assist you in your daily tasks of content scheduling, posting on your platforms, answering emails & managing your schedule.

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn Setup & Maintenance, Content and Marketing Research, Auto and manual posting setup & scheduling,  Facebook Design,  Facebook Ads, Monitor online presence for effectiveness and authenticity in brand, Customer Service and Response (this is where your people are hanging out, they need to be taken care of just as promptly as they would if they walked into your place of business.

And, new this year: I am offering crash courses, which are just what they sound like. You tell me where you need some improvement & help with your pages & I will tutor you for a minimum of 2 hours to help you get comfortable managing your own social media.

Webinars: This is a very early stage, but, by the Summer, I hope to be hosting a webinar or 2 to teach you about this crazy world of social media & the importance of content relevance & research.

If any of this at all resonates with you, please feel free to contact me so we can brainstorm on the best option for YOU!

    Sounds like you really know what you are talking about! I’ll keep it in mind if I ever decide I need some help in that area.

    I wish I could afford social media help, but I’m not quite there yet! Best of luck with your business this year!
