While I love, love, love, my social media clients sometimes I am not the best fit for every business.

Here are 12 Social Media Managers I recommend if you want to work with someone other than me.

1. Marley Baird


Marley spends her days creatively rockin’ the social media world. She is the person her friends and coworkers come to when they have questions about pop culture, celebrity news, social media, and tech support. She considers this notoriety a great achievement. If she isn’t immersed in her laptop, Facebook, or Instagram, she can probably be found in a quiet corner laughing to herself while video editing, or spending all her free time with her family. Marley’s goal is to make all of her clients feel like a celebrity in their industry with the help of her creative work.

12. Geraldine Leroye

Geraldine Leroye
I am Social Media Strategist and I help established businesses and individuals create, integrate or strengthen their social media in their marketing strategy.

Facebook is my weapon of choice – everyone is on Facebook, and your customers are too, whether you are an online business, a classic brick-and-mortar company or a B2B business (yes, B2B businesses MUST be on Facebook too. Your job is also to help your clients to sell to their own clients)

I can help you develop a targeted online community to generate more profits, promote engagement and improve your brand awareness. With my experience in highly targeted Facebook ads and promotions, I make sure that you are not wasting your advertising dollars by reaching out to the wrong audience.

Social media management is not an overnight miracle, it takes efforts, grit, and investment – but much less than you could think. Even a couple of dollars targeted to the right audience can bring excellent results, but you need to know what you are doing, and this is why I am here to help you.

Let’s talk about your current marketing strategy, even if it is barely existing. Let’s get in touch!


At the end of the day, it is about finding someone who you work well with and who does great work.
