What Doug does:
Online Branding Strategy and consulting
Doug has worked with many different types of brands in different industries that target many different demographics. If you are starting out or are unsure if your message is the right one Doug can help you craft a strategy to find the right message and build a community around it. You may offer a great widget but with no real message around it. We can find your brand’s voice and come up with a roadmap for how to broadcast it online.
Content creation and social media management
Creating content and posting it online can be extremely time consuming (and frustrating) if you are trying to actually run your business. Hiring an expert like Doug who is creative, knows how to write, where to post and where to spend to make sure content gets in front of the right people can be just the right investment without having to hire a full time employee. You do what you do best - running the day to day of your business, and let Doug create and post content on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or elsewhere, building communities, awareness of your brand and driving traffic to your website or your doorstep.
social media training
Doug is available to train you on how to use certain online apps and platforms or to train your team members to be able to execute your online strategy. This can include training on strategy to get your message across in ways that are consistent with your brand and or on a tactical level from posting your content, to monitoring activity and engaging with your customers.
Okay so this is a shameless plug for Frameable Faces Photography which Doug is a partner in with Ally, but yes this does go along with online branding if you need professional photos of your products, your location, or your face and those of your team for your website and social media profiles.
Doug’s 2 Hour social media class
This two hour basic overview of how and why social media works is available in person with Doug at the Frameable Faces Photography studio in West Bloomfield or online via Skype or other platforms. This is a good primer for someone who is looking to start a small business social media strategy or even just to get in the online social game for their own personal use.
Classic rock cover band
Okay so this is yet another shameless plug this time for Doug’s band Vintage Playboy which is available for private parties jamming your rock favorites from Led Zeppelin to U2 to Bob Seger…
If you’re just in a generally crappy mood and need a laugh Doug knows a handful of good jokes that could give you a chuckle. These may range from really short and corny “dad jokes” to somewhat (okay maybe more than somewhat) inappropriate jokes.
