Unfortunately, the promises agreed upon weren’t in line with the results delivered…so she went back to the drawing board (and to did all the work herself).

If you’re wanting to save your time and money while improving and increasing your engagement and reach, you may want to try on the ones we will be showing you today!

Why Do I Need a Social Media Marketer?

Whether you hire a person or invest in software, a great marketer can transform your business.

Since you’re a coach, you can’t always wear all the hats within your business. That’s why it’s beneficial to invest in something or someone to take things off your plate. 

One of the best places to start for this is outsourcing your social marketing.

Regardless of how good you are at it, having tools that are focused on marketing can only be in your best interest, because it frees you up to work with clients.

Here are our top 3 recommendations for any coach looking for great social marketing software.

Checklist To Prepare Your Software Trial Before You Buy:

Make a list of challenges you want the tool to solve
Rank your list by importance
List most important features
List key integrations the provider should work with (e.g., your calendar tool?)
Create a test case (use case) that describes a typical scenario you want to use the software for
Block time on your calendar for testing before you sign up
Sign up for the trial
Mark your calendar with a reminder a day before the trial ends so you can turn off the accounts you don’t want to use
Write a vendor review so you can help others

With all the help they’ll provide, you’ll be able to focus on what matters: coaching.
