Thinking about upping your online marketing game? Want to really go for it and enhance your social media to its max?
If you’re wondering what to budget for your next marketing strategy, here’s the research we found for you:
Twitter: “if you already have an existing Twitter account, but need some help to take it to the next level, restructuring an existing Twitter account with limited coaching to achieve client goals is still going to cost you between $1,000-$2,500 per month, with some companies charging as much as $4,000 per month.”
Facebook: “To set up a new Facebook account and provide limited ongoing training to business partners, online PR agencies charge an average of $2,500-$5,000 per month, with some going as high as $9,000.”
Others like Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and SnapChat: could be up to $1,000 or more for each one add on, but it’s wise to ask your social media strategist to bundle their costs for utilizing multiple social media platforms.
