How to Streamline Your Social Media 

Jamie Palmer

 Build a thriving photography business by understanding an online business ecosystem
How to create one piece of macro content and turn it into micro content.
Creating a content workflow: How to create two weeks of social media content in under 30 minutes.

entrepreneur and digital marketer with a proven track record of growing businesses, Jamie Palmer has used her expertise to teach others the best practices in marketing which will lead them to success. As the CEO & Digital Business Strategist of Outlier Marketing Group, she understands in-depth the challenges of managing and marketing a business. Jamie’s class, “Social Made Simple,” demystifies the often confusing and complex world of social media. In this digital age, the importance of social media marketing for businesses cannot be overstated. Sales and success can depend entirely on your online strategy. But just knowing this fact doesn’t always make it easy to put into action — if you’re new to the world of digital marketing, it can seem daunting and overwhelming to think of all the content you need to create and what it will require. Fortunately, Jamie created a class to address exactly this. Her class will go over the process of creating and mapping a month’s worth of social media content, without spending endless hours each week wondering how and what to post. She will discuss her process of creating posting plans to monetize content, the blueprints she uses to keep her marketing organized, how to create micro content from macro content, templates and guides for creating social media posts, and more. Her process has already transformed many businesses into more efficient ones by teaching them how to systematize content creation so that they have the freedom and time to work on other goals besides social media.  Read more about Jamie on her website here
