Mike is able to cut through the complicated world of social media and create a realistic plan…
I met Mike through a friend 1-2 years ago, and initially hired him for an online marketing/social media consultation for my business. We’ve met a number of times since then, and just today we agreed that it would be best for us to work together regularly for ongoing social media support. Mike is able to cut through the complicated world of social media and create a realistic plan that maximizes available resources in an efficient manner. He’s a great coach, and I’m happy to have him on our team here at Simply Rocks. Thanks Mike!
I turned to Talk Media for ways to enhance the visibility and success of my marketing strategies…
I have been using Facebook and Twitter for a number of years but once I became an administrator for three different social media sites, I turned to Talk Media for ways to enhance the visibility and success of my marketing strategies. Mike is a great instructor, giving clear, hands-on advice. His understanding and use of analytics has helped me to increase how and when I target my audience. I have referred him to a number of colleagues because I am confident he will offer skilled, professional assistance.

I was terrified of what I had signed up for when I agreed to help with my company’s “online presence”…
When we started meeting with Mike for social media training, I was terrified of what I had signed up for when I agreed to help with my company’s “online presence.” Mike went above and beyond to teach me what I needed to know and how to implement it. Every meeting was productive and engaging. By our 5th meeting I went from “I don’t know if I can do this” to “I got this! No problem!!” Mike is detail oriented, organized, and extremely professional. He inspires confidence. I only wish I could give him more stars!

I now have an on-call social media expert whom…
Mike Talkington is exactly the person I needed to meet to figure out how to work and leverage my social media. In the past I hired people to create my business pages for the social media sites and paid someone weekly to post my content for me. However, I never really learned how to use or understand it all and having someone post content for me was not the best ROI. My first consultation with Mike was the best time I have ever spent on getting a handle on social media. He shows you the mechanics of navigating the sites, brings purpose and understanding as well as why to do something with it. For someone like myself who is not inclined towards using Facebook, Twitter, and the myriad sites of social media, Mike offers invaluable insight, knowledge, and experience to better understand this cyber world and how to leverage it for business. I now have an on-call social media expert whom I can consult with and solve problems with all of my social media. Small business owners with social media challenges would be wise to contact Mike Talkington of Talk Media.

He’s introduced me to the world of Facebook…
I’m not a technophobe but I didn’t keep up technology, especially in the Social Media arena. I’m so very grateful to have met Mike from Talk Media. He’s knowledgeable, persistent, patient, and thorough. He’s introduced me to the world of Facebook, helped to clean up my Facebook Pages (I had 3) and Google+ (I had 5 pages!). We’re formulating and implementing a marketing plan for my social media. His knowledge and temperament along with his passion for the prosperity of small business and small business owners make him an invaluable asset for anyone who hires him.
