Feature Friday | Jillian Lawrence Virtual Assistant

Happy Friday everyone! We're so excited to start our new Feature Friday on our website. Every Friday, we'll be featuring one of Shawnigan Lake's finest business owners and their business. This week, we would like to introduce you to Jillian Lawrence, Virtual Assistant. Be sure to read the entire article to see the amazing deal Jillian is offering fellow SLBA members. Thanks Jillian! 



Describe what your business is all about.

I am a virtual assistant, who specializes in social media management for small businesses. In today's cyber focused world, having a regular presence on sites such as Facebook and Twitter are vital for the success of any business. Consumers want to feel a connection with the people they are purchasing from; with social media your customers can have regular in-your-face contact directly to their homepage(s). Social media posts are short information clips that are meant to drive people to your website, where they will find the bulk of information about your business. Allow me to take on the time commitment of managing your social media, so you can focus on building your business. 


Where is your business location and what are your hours of operation?

I operate online! I'm happy to meet with local clients to set up a business plan. Otherwise, I'm available via FaceTime and Skype.


How long have you been in business?

My business is new this year and growing rapidly.


What is your background? Education? Work Experience?

I am a marketing geek with mad social media skills. The first 10 years of my career history were spent in the customer service industry where I climbed the corporate ladder. Lucky for me, I discovered my passion for business administration and moved on to work in office settings, excelling into executive assistant positions. My most recent employment, in marketing, offered me experience to broaden my skillset and eventually start working for myself! 


Do you have any special offers or discounts for your fellow SLBA members?

If your business is lacking a presence on social media, I am here to help! Facebook is great place to start, and as a member of the SLBA I will create a jazzy business page for you for FREE! No strings attached. If you need helping managing it from there, I'd be happy to talk pricing. Why do you need a Facebook page? Well for starters, it's FREE advertising! Your page will build "followers" who will regularly see your posts, your followers have the ability to "share" those posts to their friends and family, gaining you free advertising. Facebook also allows you to pay a small fee to boost your posts to a target audience.
