Jimmie Lanley social media and educational consultant jimmielanley.com

If you have questions related to social media, blogging, or homeschool in general, get in touch. My services are thorough because I am a person who takes great attention to detail without losing the overarching perspective.

If you don't know where to start in bringing your small business into the era of social networking, I can evaluate your situation and give you direction for taking small or large steps towards online engagement.

Are there gaps in your understanding of social media? Do you have questions you need answers to but are too embarrassed to ask? I am a teacher at my core, so I can explain things in easy to understand terminology, giving you practical steps to implement. Need hand-holding? I can walk you through the actions I recommend, teaching you how to do it yourself.

Or if you just want it done, I can provide many different services or help you find someone who can.

Start with one of my marketing packages. But feel free to contact me if your particular situation differs from what is offered there. 

A Few Words From Me

After looking at our website, Jimmie suggested a consultation because she had some ideas to improve our SEO.  Of course, we had thought we were doing just fine, but we were completely blown away by the consultation.  Jimmie gave us so many tips and ideas and suggestions! After we implemented a few of them, we experienced significant and almost immediate SEO benefits. We’ve seen a huge increase in sales as well.

We get no nonsense advice from Jimmie about how to position and market our products.  She is always coming up with new ideas for how to get the word out about Heritage History’s classical curriculum.

Marketing with Social Media

Jimmie’s product review feedback and assistance have been invaluable, in my opinion.

The Twitter and Facebook parties she organized are really fun, and I’ve doubled— close to tripled—my connections with homeschooling moms.

Product Evaluation and Social Media Events

My expertise is in my kitchen and with my kids, not with social media.  I needed help; I was wasting a lot of time trying to figure things out on my own.  Jimmie worked with me to learn how to more effectively use social media, especially Pinterest. She gave great advice as to where I should focus my efforts based upon my customer base.  I saw results immediately.

Consultation Testimonial

Jimmie had expertise and experience to offer me, but it was her personalization that really stood out. Prior to our first session, she had familiarized herself with my site and books and was ready with suggestions to immediately implement. Her customized consultation took into account my vision, unique needs,  skills, and target market.

Jimmie is as warm and caring as she appears to be online. The time I spent with her gave me a vision for something bigger than I had been dreaming and let me see a way to make it a reality.

I am excited every month when I pay Jimmie’s invoice because I know that I have someone on call to answer my questions and to help me in a jam.

Long Term Consultation Testimonial

My consultation with Jimmie was like seeing a digital chiropractor. It hurt a little to hear some of what she said, but I knew it would make me feel better later. Before we met, I didn’t know where to start or what to do with my online business. After our consultation, I know what needs to happen.

Consultation Testimonial

I purchased one of Jimmie’s consulting packages and was especially impressed with how she efficiently reviewed and recorded via a screencast all the sections of my website before I even talked to her on the phone. Because of that recording, I was able to replay the session several times over on my own and make changes over the ensuing weeks.

On the phone consult, Jimmie gave me the biggest value yet when she pointed out that how I was presenting my course material was not suited to my market of busy homeschool moms. I had an opposite recommendation from another expert who catered to a male customer audience and did not understand the mindset of this market. Jimmie’s advice was right on! I immediately made changes based on Jimmie’s recommendations, and as I result, I finally started making sales of e-courses with personal private coaching support.

Site and Social Media Assessment Consultation

I don’t think anyone else knows as much about the homeschool market as Jimmie. She combines this knowledge with her web savvy to deliver spot-on recommendations. We have seen real and immediate improvements following her advice for our website and social media. A true expert. Recommended without qualification.

One other point—Jimmie is generous with her knowledge. Just visiting her website and reading what she’s written will give you a big leg up. Follow up with her services and the sky’s the limit.

Working with Jimmie has been most insightful and productive to my long-term planning as well as for the vision and development of my business. I’ve worked with Jimmie several times, and intend to continue the relationship! It’s been great every time. What I love about Jimmie is her knowledge, attention to detail, and her extensive network. Working with someone committed, who’s also well-connected, is key to the project’s success. When I work with Jimmie, I trust her. I know that if she says she will do something, she will do it! I see results each time! That’s valuable when you are running a business of any size, especially a start-up where every penny counts and needs to go a long way. Thank you, Jimmie!
