Shout out to all the overworked and underpaid social media managers who are always working, forgetting to take breaks, and in constant hustle mode:

It’s beyond time for you to be booked out so you can experience the freedom and real perks of being a business owner.

Tell me if this sounds familiar, friend. You’re…

✔️ Tired of feeling under-appreciated and overworked. You’re having to constantly hustle to get new clients but the hours you’re putting into your business don’t match the income coming in.

✔️So over feeling overwhelmed and like you’re drowning in client work in your social media management business because you keep signing clients who aren’t a good fit and leave you feeling exhausted.

✔️Sick of working off hours, letting your dinner get cold and your spouse get annoyed in the process, just to get things finished.

✔️Done with being constantly glued to your phone, watching Netflix with one eye on your DMs, and juggling your “relaxation time” (i.e. taking a shower) with mentally ticking off your to-dos.

The thing is, you’re more than willing to put in the work to build the social media management business of your dreams

Because you want the kind of business that allows you to work only 4 hours a day and take random afternoons off “just because”.

A business that also brings in enough consistent revenue to let you have the kind of life you want (i.e. treating your family and friends, splurging on vacations, and having regular margaritas, chips, guac AND queso from the cool new bar down the street).

One that leaves you feeling invigorated, not exhausted. Where you get to make an impact on your clients’ lives by helping them make THEIR dreams come true.

One that is profitable, sustainable and future-proofed for the long term. 

A business  that does all of this and still leaves you plenty of time to hang out with your family and do whatever it is you want to do in your life.

Are you ready to start seeing a return on your efforts and for it to stop feeling so hard all.the.time?

CUE THE 🙌🎉🍾

Cause it’s time to say “peace out” to self-doubt and the old ways that led you to feeling like you’re drowning in work without the income to show for it…

 

…and “HIIII, FRIEND!” to learning the step-by-step strategy for having this exact kind of business from someone who has been there, done that and got the jumbo coffee cup to prove it.

INTRODUCING

A 4-week program designed to give you EVERYTHING you need to create the social media management business of your dreams without the burnout and overwhelm. 

In this program, you’ll…

  • Learn how to attract clients who fully respect your expertise, stick to your boundaries and won’t try to micromanage you
  • Gain clarity in your pricing and knowledge of the SMM field
  • Discover how to stop spending way too much time writing captions that go beyond what your client pays you for
  • Get that much-needed CEO energy and confidence boost so you can finally begin charging your worth

Take it from the woman who turned her love of social media into a 6-figure business from straight-up scratch

In case we haven’t been introduced yet, I’m Shannon – wife, mama, marketing junkie (oh, and the unofficial poster girl for oat milk lattes, pinot grigio and long walks down the aisles of Target).

Before helping small biz owners grow their online presence and simplify social media, I worked at CNN where – during news breaks and overnights – my own love for social media grew. 

I did the whole 9–5 thing for a while, but I quickly realized I wanted more creativity, more time AND more freedom which is when my own social media management business Boutique Social DC was born!

That was 5 years, lots of clients, lots of lessons, and LOTS of cups of coffee ago. Over that time I’ve seen first hand the difference between a SMM business that has real systems and strategies in place…and one that’s cobbled together with no real plan other than “get clients and do the work”. 

I struggled through the hard times and learned from my mistakes quickly, and now I want to help YOU avoid those same mistakes.

I want to help you get to the place of being booked out in your SMM business without having to go through the blood, sweat, tears and nights of ugly crying into your wine glass that I went through.

Shannon’s teaching style was perfect for me as a working mom/spouse, building my side hustle. The course was drip-taught with daily homework that I could implement in real time! Not only did she breakdown the concepts, but also made herself available for additional questions in the Facebook community. The community is helpful and supportive, and I really do feel that I have the tools, skills and knowledge to start my social media management business.

Shannon provided everything I needed and so much more this course. She provided wonderful templates, worksheets, and scripts that I was able to implement immediately. It came at the perfect time in my business. This course gave me the push I needed to become the true CEO and start putting systems in place, level up my prices, and she taught me EXACTLY how to create connections with my local community. I am so beyond grateful for the knowledge, wisdom, and confidence that she provided to me and the growth of my business.

Hold my marg’ while I tell you exactly what you’re going to get in The Profitable Social Media Manager:

Are you ready to leave the overwhelm behind and FINALLY be booked out and have the kind of work–life balance you started your own business for?!

Shannon, can’t I just keep trying to figure this all out on my own?

Here’s the deal: If someone had told me how to do all of this 5 years ago, I would have created a 6-figure business much earlier than I did. 

Instead I learned, tweaked, changed, updated, sweat, bleed, burned, cried…but you don’t have to. 

This program has been intentionally designed to give you the guidance, mindset and clarity you need to step into that CEO energy in your social media manager business.

I’ve been doing social media marketing for 7 years and have had my business now for 5 years. When I first started mentoring social media managers, I was taken right back to the struggles of juggling clients without support, etc. I helped those clients with the very same things I’m going to be teaching you and they’re now getting BIG results.

I’ve put all of this into a course format so that YOU can also start seeing those big results at a more affordable price.

Questions?

1: I’m super busy already – how much time will I need to dedicate to the program?
Friend, I get that you are busy with work, life, and everything in between. That’s why I’ve structured this program so that you will see results in your SMM business by dedicating just  30 minutes a day. The daily (4 days a week) video lessons are no longer than 10 minutes and the daily ‘homework’ shouldn’t take you more than 20 minutes to do. Imagine this – in just 4 weeks, you could have transformed your current SMM business into the kinda SMM business you actually want to have. Is that worth 30 minutes of your time a day? I think so!

2. Can’t I just keep watching your mini-trainings to learn this stuff for free?
You know I believe in giving value to my audience – but the level of the value you’ll get as part of The Profitable Social Media Manager is beyond what you could ever get from me for free. And, until now, the only place you could get specific advice and training for running your SMM business is in my high-ticket 1:1 mentoring. The Profitable Social Media Manager is the cheapest, most affordable way for you to get the same kind of help I give my 1:1 mentoring clients. Y’all, I remember what it was like having to struggle and hustle HARD to try and make my SMM business profitable…which is why I want YOU to learn how to do it the quick way.

3. Is this for brand new SMMs or already established ones?
The Profitable Social Media Manager is for any social media manager – whether you’re brand new or already established – who is ambitious, purpose-driven and is ready to learn how to run their business on their own terms (and not be treated like someone’s admin).

If you’re just getting started, then what’ll you’ll learn in the program is how to avoid the struggles, challenges and time it took me to get my SMM business to the place where it is profitable, enjoyable, and thriving. 

If you’re already established or have been doing it for a while, you’ll learn how to tighten up your business, work through stuck points, and actually grow your SMM business (to the point where you’re outsourcing and hiring team members)

 

Friend, here’s the thing: you SHOULD be able to set your “Automatic Reply” to ON and take a vacation whenever you want to.

You SHOULD be able to spend time with your family, treat yo’self and them to nice things, and make a real impact in the world without having to sacrifice all of your time and sanity.

You should be able to get to do all of these things (and more) in your social media management business – stick with me and we’ll get you there.
