Keep it Real Social helps businesses of all sizes use social media marketing in the following ways:
- Social media audits (optimization): We evaluate what is or is not working by diving into the data to identify strengths and weakness for optimization.
- Social media strategy: We create customized social media strategies and develop a plan with tactical action steps for your businesses that delivers immediate and long-term results.
- Implementation: After analysing the data to optimize your social media, and creating a social media strategy, we can implement the developed plan while you focus on other parts of your business. We become an extension of your team.
Social Media Training: We teach businesses how to use social media marketing on all levels. We offer one-on-one training, corporate training, private workshops, or daylong seminars.
Meet our Founder and CEO, Sommer Poquette
Sommer grew up thinking she would always be a teacher. She even bet her dad $100 she’d graduate college as a teacher. Sommer won the bet but after discovering blogging, and social media marketing in 2007, she swamped the chalk for a laptop. She spent over a decade working as a professional blogger, social media consultant, and online influencer. Her experience includes working with award winning PR and advertising firms on social media campaigns for large brands such as eBay, Verizon Wireless, Whirlpool, Method, and Stoneyfield Farms…to name a few.
After selling her Nielsen top rated blog in 2018, she launched Keep it Real Social to help small businesses use social media marketing successfully. Sommer loves to help others. She’s a teacher at heart but is now using her passion, talents, and expertise to work with business owners instead of elementary students.
