The Female Mind at Work

Not only do I create and schedule creative content for my clients, I also use my media relations skills to get them in front of a much broader audience.

I got my client, The F-Suite, LLC on the SC Business Review because they are at the point of needing to reach audiences in different ways — and a lot of business-minded people listen to this show, who can potentially turn into great advertising partners, and bring us new stories to write about that we may never have know about. It's a great two way street when your company can be featured on the RIGHT media. Let me help you do that for your organization.

Our next guest says that women don’t think, manage, reason, negotiate, or make decisions like men do. However, she adds that women don’t do these things

Chik-fil-a and Popeyes ain't got nothing on Spotted Salamander Catering, Mr. Friendly's, Drake's Duck In, Bone-In Barbeque, A Peace of Soul Vegan Kitchen, Bubba's Biscuit, and many more purveyors of fine chicken sandwiches around town, all without the risk of getting punched while waiting in a long line.

Whether you take it spicy, open faced or with a healthy dollop of pimento cheese, Columbia SC has got a chicken sandwich that will make you forget about any fast food rivalry.

Social Media Management - The F Suite

I took some time to write a piece for The F-Suite on why you need a social media manager like myself.

Key takeaways include: I proofread for a living, you have better things to do with your time, and keeping up with the changes are frustrating for someone who has other focuses.

See what other benefits you can reap from hiring Social Graces Media to keep you from losing your mind behind a keyboard.

Learn why small business owners need a social media manager well-versed in your industry and extremely knowledgeable about its culture.

Rest Easy: Our Romaine Safety Statement : Vertical Roots

Don't stress over salads, ya'll! When you know your farmers, you can forget about those ridiculous (and ever-increasing) e. coli outbreaks that are happening nationwide!

Grab some safe leaves at Soda City or any of the other South Carolina retailers that carry Vertical Roots lettuce.

On Friday, November 22, 2019, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a warning to consumers and retailers in response to an outbreak of E. Coli linked to romaine lettuce produced in Salinas, California. We launched Vertical Roots to make sure that our friends and neighbors always have...

Why Being Organized Was The Best Thing I Did For My Life

As a new small business owner, being organized is an absolute requirement in my life now! I organize my files, notes, and processes to make the most of my time and the time of my clients. Thanks for the affirmation, BuzzFeed!

Instagram Is Now Hiding Likes in the US: Here's Everything You Need to Know - Later Blog

It's true, Instagram is taking away likes because they want to make it a platform that's more about engagement with one another than numbers (in a nutshell).

Later posits that this is a good thing, and will breed more creativity and artsy if they don't have to worry about a public number of likes showing below their posts.

As a social media marketer, I am glad to think that it will bring about a higher level of creativity with less focus on metrics, but sometimes numbers are much easier to work with when working with you, my clients. This is just another example of the kind of social media thing you don't need to worry about, busy small business owner! Let Social Graces Media handle it instead.

Have your post's likes disappeared? Instagram has officially hidden likes from users in the US, and we have all the info you need about this major change.

Steamed: When Social Media, Politics and Restaurants Collide

One reason to consider professional social media management? This article I wrote earlier this year for the Free Times sums up how business owners can benefit from having another layer of protection between them and the keyboard.

We agree with the unnamed professional in this article, who says “Our advice to our clients is that they treat social media like a dinner party,” they say. “If you can avoid discussing politics and religion then you are probably okay.”

Imagine you’re sitting in a booth at your local diner, about to dig in to your plate of eggs and grits. The owner stops by your table.
