We say this every year, but it is truly hard to believe that another year is coming to a close. 2017 has been an amazing year filled with learning opportunities, growth and meeting new people. All of which we absolutely love!
While there are so many things we could talk about from the year, here are a few of our favourite memories and highlights from 2017:
1. Managed Over 100 Social Media Accounts
Yes! You read that correctly. This year we were fortunate to continue our growth and managed over 100 social media accounts for our clients. Now, we know what you're thinking. How is that even possible? Well, scroll down to step three and you'll see.
2. Wrote 38 blogs
We love to write. It's our passion and what our clients call, a "life saver" for them. Business owners often have a wealth of knowledge about a particular topic, the problem is that who has the time to sit down and write something for their website? Not many. We were honoured to help with blogs with topics that ranged from staff interviews, marketing, home renovations, UTVs and more! Oh, and did we mention on-top of this we also helped re-write content for three major websites for a crown corporation in Alberta? Our fingers worked some serious overtime this year!
3. Invested in Support
The thing about being a business owner is that you have this idea that you have to do everything by yourself. Why? Well, because no one does it as good as you can. Wrong. There are amazing people that can and will support your business. From hiring an accountant, to hiring someone to help managing and cultivating social media communities, we took a step back this year and realized that help is AWESOME. The best part is that not only do we benefit, our clients benefit too! This gives our clients the greatest service possible, In 2018, we are hoping to continue our growth by hiring two additional Social Media Managers and a Web Designer.
4. Re-Structured Business
As indicated above, things are changing. Including our packages, our pricing and our offerings. In 2017 Simplified Social hired an amazing and life changing coach who has helped us plan for 2018 and beyond. We are excited to start offering our own training programs in 2018 as well. If you haven't checked out our first workshop, you can do so here.
So, what's up for us in 2018? Besides what's listed above, we are excited to keep growing. Growth is a scary thing, but the business model we have created is solid and most importantly, our clients are happy. We are always on the hunt for the right clients that could benefit from our services. From now until January 1, 2018 we are offering 15% off the social media package of your choice. While this offer is amazing, we will only be offering it to five new clients due to the time intensive nature of our business.
We hope each and every one of you takes some time for you this Christmas! All the best in 2018. We know it's going to be an AMAZING year!
