Last week’s question: Does your company handle social media in-house? Tell us why or why not.
Yes — 84 percent
No — 16 percent
From our Facebook page:
Yes, we do. We feel that no one can speak the pulse of our company and culture quite like the people that work here and are in the trenches day to day.
—Lancaster County Timber Frames Inc.
It’s too expensive for my small business to outsource it social media. It’s just easier to delegated it to our members.
—William McKinley Lenhart Jr.
We do some of both. For Landis Homes, we have an in house group of seven folks who have access to the account and share posting, commenting and work together to plan strategy. Welsh Mountain Home also manages their own internally. For Steeple View Lofts, we have hired an outside firm Kinectiv, to do it for us. Both approaches work, it is about matching resources and needs in a manner that makes sense.
We handle all of our social media efforts in-house at Reinsel Kuntz Lesher LLP. With 300+ team members and four offices, this gives us the agility to keep pace with the to-the-second demands of social media and the insight into our brand that might be missed by an outside provider.
—Allison Metzger Schlegelmilch
From our LinkedIn group:
As a solopreneur, I have learned that responsible and attractive social media involvement is both critical and desirable for my business. Three years ago I hired Strella Social Media to manage and implement the bulk of my social media efforts. While I, personally, provide a great deal of content and absolutely oversee all posts prior to publication, I have entrusted Rachel Strella and her staff to handle multiple social media platforms for Launching Lives, LLC.
