"Shaily helps provide accountability to reinvest in your own marketing."
"We do get so consumed with our own work that it’s hard to have time to invest in our own marketing. It’s very normal for your own marketing to fall by the wayside when you are working so hard on your other clients. What was helpful with [Shaily] is that it was about baby steps. It’s so overwhelming when you realize all the work you have to do but if you can just start with one step and another day start with another step, it helps alleviate the overwhelming feeling. ”

How A Social Media Sherpa Session Works
Purchase your session right here on my website
Book a time
We book a block of time (usually 2 hours) to sit down and work together
Once we have a time confirmed, I send you some intro questions so I can best understand your need and what you want to learn about.
I spend a couple hours delving into your current online media. I check Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, and even your website.
Once I know what you have going on online, I use my education background to write a comprehensive lesson plan for our session.
I start the session by giving you an overview of what we are going over. I followup and ask for anything else you want to make sure you want to know.
I make sure your current platforms are up to date with information.
Q & A
Ask absolutely anything during our session. I do my best to answer or point to helpful resources.
At the end of the session, I ask you how often do you want to be reminded of what we learned today. I schedule 3 emails over the coming weeks to check in with you on progress.

But if you get the subscription, it's less.
What you get:
What do you get for the money? We sit down for a 1-2 hour session depending on your schedule. You will get a few warm-up questions from Shaily via email in the days leading up to your session. Based on what you have told her your needs are, she will make an adaptable lesson plan to follow the day of. Though she cannot cover all your needs, Shaily does her best to make sure you leave with more information on your priority needs.
What to bring to the session:
The session works best if both you and Shaily have a computer in front of them.
What other clients asked Shaily:
Shaily has helped people with learning a new platform, inspiring ways business owners can engage past clients to keep the referral engine going, and has even sat down with them during that time to edit pages of her clients. I make sure that everyone I sit with leaves with something new up on at least one of their social media pages.
-Learning a specific platform (Facebook, LinkedIn, Medium, Quora, Twitter, and beyond)
-Setting up pages for you
-Deep dive into what you already have and what you can do better
-Setting up a posting schedule
-And more… Ask and I will let you know how I can help
Post Session Accountability:
What happens after? I hold you accountable. Before the session ends, I ask what is a realistic timeline to get done what you have set out for yourself. When I get home, I schedule a series of personalized emails to go out in the ideal intervals to remind you of what you hoped to accomplish. One customer said she needed to work on writing more blogs but only needed a reminder every 2-3 weeks. So I set that up for her. One client said she liked working on strict deadlines and procrastinating before sessions. I set up emails that emphasized the deadline being our next session. My customers can then respond to those emails with any updates or questions they had between sessions.
Scope and relationship beyond the session:
If you have purchased a session from me in the past month, I am happy to answer small questions that come up over time. I trust that you will use your business sense to ask within reason and will let you know if you ask too much. I am generally very open. *I am even more generous if I can reply to your email in a voice message.
Extra Check in Session:
If you booked a session within the last month, I am super flexible on spending time answering your questions over email. I am also available to one optional 30 - minute social media check-in call after the session included in the package. That expires within a month of each individual meeting.
I have included in this pricing. It's the time to get to where you prefer to meet. I live in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago. I sometimes work out of an office near The Bean. Around once a week, I am out of a location in Lincolnshire, IL. I can drive to you if there is readily available free parking. I prefer not to go too far from these areas. Let’s chat and see if there is a great location that works for you that I can easily get to. I have found coworking spaces work well. Crowded coffee shops are a bit harder. Finding a space where we can both talk out loud without interrupting others around us is the goal.
I love payments over Zelle. Most major banks offer this service. It goes directly from your bank account to mine in a blink of an eye. Open up your banking app or web browser to Zelle and use this specific email as where you want to direct the payment: firstname.lastname@example.org (keep in mind that it may ask for an email or phone number, please only use this email)
I am happy to take physical checks or online checks mailed out through your bank account.
You can purchase on this website. I also have my PayPal set up under email@example.com. You can send money from your account to my account. I can also send an invoice where you can pay online. I may collect additional convenience fees for these options.
When did you start doing social media?
Unofficially, when I was running a Myspace group at 14 but no one called it social media at the time. Officially after college back in 2013. I have been working in the field ever since.
Lakeview, Chicago, IL
