Social Media Outsourcing in Manchester
The newest member of our team Essy Van Der Vlies talks about why she is in the perfect position to manage our social media outsourcing team and her passion for seeing social media grow.
My Social Media Journey
If I would get a pound for the question:”Essy, how come you have such a loyal following and you get so many likes, comments and shares”, I would buy myself a ticket to the sunshine right now and top up my tan! The truthful answer is genuine engagement with appealing and consistent content. However, if you are running a business the last thing you have time for is spending hours online organically growing and connecting with potential customers.
With Social Media becoming a very crowded place it’s getting more difficult to stand out from the crowd and find your audience in your niche. However, Social Media outsourcing remains one of the most effective ways to grow your business and brand online. Keeping ahead of all the constant changes is very time consuming for any business or entrepreneur to stay on top of the game. These days Facebook can push out up to three to four updates daily. Anyone that manages a Facebook page will have experienced that for example, the recent algorithm change can affect how many followers will get to see your posts and therefore can affect your business negatively. Trying to keep up to date with these changes is almost a full-time job. Creating consistent and strong content in an engaging way that will draw new customers to your page definitely requires dedication, enthusiasm and the knowledge of how to get noticed for all the right reasons.
Starting out as a total Social Media virgin three years ago promoting my model images gaining lots more booked shoots rapidly and my passion to inspire and empower women I quickly found out how to keep my audience wanting more and growing organically. I also learned quickly what not to do, the importance of educating yourself with the latest changes to keep on top of the game.
Paid Social and Social Media Outsourcing
Fast forward to today I am now managing accounts for a number of businesses, helping them achieve their goals online. Realising that the skills I have learned over the last few years are helping many different businesses is very rewarding. Therefore me and the team have now have decided to extend this service to business of all sizes across the UK.
I am writing this article first to show my gratitude for all those that have followed and supported me over the last three years, especially the people that have educated me on writing interesting blogs, publishing, editing and keep on growing steadily online. However what I am even more excited about is sharing my knowledge, my enthusiasm, and social media skills how to help other businesses grow to their full potential. Together with the Social Proof Media team, which includes specialist in video production, SEO, publishing, sales funnels and paid advertising I believe we have the perfect proposition to help your business flourish too.

I am now working with a luxury watch company, a physiotherapy practice in Berkshire, a software company, a care home and multiple hospitality venues and I couldn’t be more excited about what’s to come next. One of the benefits working with the team and a wide range of different businesses most definitely is picking up additional knowledge in area’s I never would have imagined and putting these into practice and seeing impressive results.
Good Social Media Practice
I think it’s crucial to keep social media outsourcing ‘social’ because let’s be honest we all get a tad irritated if we get bombarded with offers or posts we don’t want to see to our timelines.
