There are multiple social media managers out there - and many in South Africa. I work with some of the best community managers, and curators. The main difference between my own offer and theirs is probably the fact that I do not plan or run campaigns as core business, but extend the reach of your own (their) publicity efforts or marketing/sales drives by amplifying those messages through my own networks e.g. @CapeTown with 350 000 odd followers.
I serve new or current campaigns, or commit to brand or cause exposure by adding digital and conversational content value online. I add flavour and my own voice to share your brand to my loyal online friends - without being intrusive or disrupting your campaign. I converse artfully with tweets about a few businesses that I feel comfortable promoting. Hope you are possibly one such brand! that my followers will embrace...
