I love dogs, travelling, coffee, writing and of course, social media.
You've probably come to this page hoping to find out more information about who is behind this company. Let's get started!
My name is Alex Carnio (formerly Kulas) and I am the Owner and Lead Consultant of Simplified Social. I started Simplified Social off the side of my desk in 2015 when I was working in a job that focused their attention to entrepreneurs by providing them with the tools they needed to be successful in business. Needless to say, working with entrepreneurs every day was very contagious and it sparked something in me that I didn't know I had, the desire to be an entrepreneur myself.
I have trained over 1500 entrepreneurs on everything from business planning to marketing to full-on social media. In this time I've realized that social media is still a struggle for so many business owners, but not for lack of trying! The problem is that as a business owner, you have other things to worry about. For example, keeping your clients happy, ensuring your invoices are paid, oh, and making money. I've witnessed it over and over again that business owners lack consistency and overall strategy when it comes to their social accounts. The other problem is that many large agencies are gouging small businesses with high price tags for little actual work. When you're growing a business, you can't justify spending $2000+ a month on four social media posts a week. That makes zero sense, yet I've seen many entrepreneurs pay it because they don't know what else to do.
I decided that there had to be a better way of doing things, which is why I started this company. I work individually with our clients and their budgets to come up with a price point and strategy that works for them. This is not a one-sized fits all process. You're not going to be able to fill-out a form and get an instant quote. I want to meet you, learn your objectives and build a relationship before taking the reigns on your digital marketing efforts.
In my three years in business I have worked with clients ranging from non-profits to investment firms to health food products to home renovation companies. I love this business because each day is different. There's variety. No day looks the same and no client has the same strategy. Each client I work with has a customized solution and price to fit their unique needs and business objectives.
