I have know Roger about twelve years as a good friend and mentor. He recently came to my rescue when I began exploring the world of social networking for my business. First he set me up on Google Maps, along with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Inside919, and then did his SEO magic. Within the first week, I received a phone call from a new client! I was so impressed with Roger’s diligence and dedication in accomplishing all of this in such a timely manner that I hired him again to set up a blog/website for my business, and connect all the other media networks together. Throughout the process, Roger has been an excellent coach, making this world of blogging and social networking seem less daunting to me. He has shown me many simple ways to use all of these web-based applications to enhance and increase my business. Roger’s assistance has been invaluable, and has far exceeded my expectations. He is an excellent coach, as well as a technical genius! I wholly endorse Roger Ely as THE man to get your business front and center on the web!! I know I will keep him on as MY all-things-internet-guy!E. Denise B. http://aboutyouraleigh.com Raleigh, NC
So, if you’re like me, you get this great idea to start a blog. You choose a freebie platform, pick out a lame design (they offer five, none of which support photos) and you begin to blog. It’s very gratifying to you and your two readers – your mother and yourself. You read other blogs and wonder how they accumulate hundreds of subscribers. After work, you spend hours researching, trying to figure out what your key words should be, but of course, that would require to actually understand what a key word is. You consider chucking the whole thing, thinking to yourself, “And how, exactly is this supposed to help me find new clients ?!” If you’re smart, you’ll hire somebody who actually understands how it all works, can walk you through it, coach you or even do it all for you. Someone like my husband, Roger Ely, whose company “My Social Media Matters” helped design my blog, The Shared Table and put it on the map. Actually, not just on the map – but at the TOP of the map. Do a Google search for “shared table” – I dare you. My blog comes up in the top five! I knew I had subscribers – but had no clue how many or who they were – Roger fixed all that by adding analytics to my site and teaching me how to use them. When I wanted to offer a download of Thanksgiving recipes to my readers – he set up the whole thing, complete with a squeeze page and opt-in box, that resulted in the highest amount of sign-ups ever. Roger constantly coaches me on how to maximize my blog’s potential, and how to make the most of Facebook, Linked-In, etc. Face it; if you’re in business, you have a product or a service to sell to OTHER PEOPLE. My Social Media Matters can help set up a plan so that YOUR social media to be a client magnet! I would highly recommend Roger to anyone looking to maximize the potential of this powerful marketing technology!Susan E. The Shared Table Raleigh, NC
I needed to develop a social media presence to market my services, but was overwhelmed by the many different tools and how to integrate them. Roger took the time to understand my business, then he explained in simple terms what I needed to do and how he could help me. Then he got started right away and delivered high quality results with remarkable speed. Roger is a true professional and working with him has been a real pleasure. I would strongly recommend Roger to anyone needing help with social media.Jerry P. The Growth Coach http://thegrowthcoachnc.com Raleigh, NC
With the high demands of running my own business I didn’t have the time or means to work on my internet marketing. With Rogers help I went from being practically obscure on Linked In to being #1 in all my key word searches! He even went so far as to create a video for me which increased traffic to my website & upped my Google ranking. I would highly recommend Social Media Matters for your internet marketing needs!Johnna E. Good Girls Studio Raleigh, NC
“I went through several so called Social Media specialists & website designers to design my website & help me set up and understand Social Media. They all left me frustrated and my project unfinished. Then I found Roger Ely & My Social Media Matters!
I was very hesitant to try again after being burned three times but Roger expressed genuine concern not just about the work needing to be done but about me personally. He took personal interest in what I did and encouraged me that it could be accomplished and done right. He convinced me he was the man to get it done and even offered me special payment arrangements so that if it wasn’t done to my satisfaction I didn’t have to pay him the balance.
Needless to say Roger came through for me when everyone else had failed me. My new website looks great, all my Social sites are connected & he’s always been available whenever I need help understanding something. He’ll even jump and help me with a post or to upload a picture or anything I’m having a problem with.Roger wasn’t perfect and missed a few things once in awhile but never missed a beat in getting it done right once I pointed out what was missed. Roger treated me with respect and worked on my project like it was his own. I highly recommend Roger Ely & My Social Media Matters to anyone; especially anyone who has tried and tried again to get their Social Media & Internet marketing project done but have been left frustrated. You won’t be disappointed. Michael Guadagno
