Our Online Management and Social Media Services
In order to be effective in social media you need to be constantly working on and maintaining an online presence for both you and your business and if you are a franchisor then you need to constantly manage and monitor yours and your franchisee’s online presence.
Setting up accounts is easy to do and you can easily manage these accounts yourself but it can become extremely time consuming if you don’t know the shortcuts and you don’t have a well equipped team to assist you.
Your social media consultant becomes your online manager and oversees the building of your digital footprint and works with a team of specialists to constantly maintain your online presence.
Social Media Management
We are not going to sugar coat it for you. Yes it is easy to set up a fan page, a Twitter account, post content here and there but the truth is social media is very time consuming and there is an art to it. The person who works on your account realistically must have extensive knowledge about the mechanics of the online space. Know which tools to use, how to monitor conversations and be able to understand your customers the way you do. It is also extremely time consuming and requires someone to be actively managing the various channels. If you are trying to do it yourself to save money then you need to commit time to doing it. If you realistically don’t have the time to do it then you will be wasting your time and you need to consider setting aside a budget and paying someone to manage it for you.
In our experience the businesses who manage their own accounts and who say social media is not working for them it is because they haven’t allocated enough time and resources to get it to work for them. Realistic on average you should be spending at least 2 hours a day working at marketing your business online.
However, having someone who knows how to get you started and give you direction is going to save you a lot of wasted time and a lot of wasted money because they know how to do it in half the time it is going to take you to do it.

Website Set Up and Management
All too often we come across unhappy people when it comes to their websites and online efforts. They are unhappy and frustrated with their websites, unhappy with their virtual support team SEO team and in most instances it’s all due to lack of knowledge and mis communication. Web experts communicate in a language which is not understood by non web people and all the non web person wants is to be online, and because it all sounds good in a language they don’t understand, the non web person hires the wrong people for the job and it can do more damage than good.
We’ve worked with people whose domains have been incorrectly registered causing loss of ownership to that domain. Worked with people who are so frustrated with their website and spent a fortune and too scared to spend anymore for fear of being duped again. There are many hair raising stories we can share with you but what we really want to say is that Direct Assist Online is passionate about helping you understand the online world, from websites right through to blogging.
