Definition: social media strategist austin texas
I am available for public speaking or social media consulting: jm[at]uber[dot]la or via phone at (512) 524-6684.
In addition to consulting I work with digital influencer-marketing agency Ivy Worldwide. I write strategic online marketing plans for small and medium businesses and manage outreach programs for several clients.
Giving Back: 2013's Charitable Support Recipient is non-profit ResistAttack.org who is providing education and self-defense materials to women at risk of violence. As part of my contribution I am providing online marketing and brand consulting and helping guide a large Google AdWords budget that was awarded as part of a 2013 Google non-profit grant.
Each year I make a portion of my work and efforts available to small businesses and non-profits for free. With a little help we can improve the world. If you have a non-profit or small business that is seeking support contact us via AustinProbono.org

What does a social media strategist do?
What do you say when people ask, "What do you do?" Ummm. I say, "I'm an online marketer." What that means is I do whatever it takes to build online marketing programs that sell services or products on the web. I've got a long tenure in design both for the web, interactive, and print. I've done enough SEO and PPC work to be competent in most systems and best practices. And I've got a good handle on how to put together cohesive campaigns from web, to email, to direct mail, and bring the whole thing together with analytics and optimization to create revenue. Sure, I do social media too, but these days there's a lot more work that needs to be done. Putting up a Facebook fan page and tweeting some coupons on Twitter isn't going to do much. You've got to know how to create content.
That's what I do. I create content. Uber.la is my sandbox. (Check out the Social Media for Business page for some good examples.)
A few of the networks you will find me on:
- linkedin – the professional networking and contacts social site
- twitter – the firehose of sharing (mostly social media, funny, and odd political)
- facebook – recently launched uber.la facebook page
- google+ – gathering all that's googled in one place
- delicious – cataloging and mapping the web since 2006 (my ultra-tag cloud)
- technorati – ranking the authority of writers and blogs
- pinterest – what started as fashion sharing is rapidly becoming the visual delicious
- jmacofearth – the web series on blip.tv
- instagram – my ongoing photostream
If you need help with your social media strategy, give me a buzz. I offer a free social media audit and initial consultation.
I am ready to engage with your social media or online marketing team and accelerate the progress towards your business goals.
Thanks for stopping by,
Social Media Strategist
