My newphew can do it for me and I'll save money.
The infamous words of many a small business owner and a few brides. Do you know someone who trusted their nephew and lived to regret it?
- 10 years ago they trusted their nephew to design the business cards and brochure for their business. Nephew was good at using computers. Nephew said he knew what to do and would work for pizza.
- 5 years ago they trusted their nephew to design the website for their business. Nephew was good at using computers, no one complained about the brochure or the business cards - not counting your significant other. Nephew would work for pizza.
- Today they trust their nephew to design and manage their social media marketing. Nephew knows more about Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and YouTube. Nephew still works for pizza.
Unfortunately trusting your nephew to manage one of the key aspects of your organizations growth is, at a minimum, short sighted.
Who do you know who is "trusting" their nephew to grow their business? Your website and social media marketing are some of the most important marketing investments you will make this year. Invest wisely, choose a professional organization such as MMJ Technology to assist you in expanding your business.
And lest I forget - if you are a bride, remember that your nephew (or uncle for that matter) probably is not a great choice as your photographer either. Would you trust something that important to this guy?
