How to get in touch with us

Please contact our account manager, Mallory, for any needs you may have while working with us.

Feedback Guidelines

We appreciate simple and straightforward feedback. When we send drafts of your social media posts, please follow these guidelines to help us both understand and move forward to create content you’re proud of:

  • Be honest! 

  • Always “REPLY ALL” to each email. This is very important as we work with multiple people – both on your team and ours – and we want to make sure that everyone stays in the loop and we don’t miss something. 

  • First, think about your business’ goals, your audience, and your customers. Base your feedback off of their mindset and thoughts and not yours. It’s more important to make sure your brand appeals to your target client/customer and audience. Ask yourself: Do you feel this content idea will attract your target market?

  • Next, tell us how you feel about the design. How do the colors, fonts, photos and graphics make you feel?

Our Onboarding Process 

What to expect while working with us

Follow along with your progress

*We really appreciate your effort to provide files and feedback within our project timeline and to communicate consistently with us. At Stratos, we will do the same. Our team understands content delays are no fun and we will work with you to keep the project timeline on track! Don’t lose out on your hard-earned money, your opportunity to grow your business, or your chance to connect with your ideal clients.

3. We make the changes and schedule your content / deliver final content (depending on if your package includes us scheduling your content for you)

Next Steps

What we’ll need from you to move forward

That was quite a bit of information, so here’s a wrap up of what we’ll need from you:

  • 1. Fill out the discovery guide (15-30 minutes): One of the most important steps, the discovery phase helps us understand your business, target market, and personal design tastes so we can craft a strategy and design content that you’re proud of.

  • 2. Fill out the client intake form (3-5 minutes): This form benefits us so we can have all your information in one spot for easier contact. And it benefits you so we can send you gifts on work-iverseries, birthdays, holidays, or whenever we feel like we miss you!

  • 3. Send us any logos, brand guidelines, and imagery you’d like us to use.
  • 4. Access to social media accounts: We will go over this on our Kickoff Call if you need help.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is StoryBrand and how does it affect your services?

The StoryBrand framework is a marketing method in which you learn to clarify your message and speak to your client’s pain-point, while making them the hero of their story. Our CEO, Julia, is a certified StoryBrand Guide, and some of our other team members also have training in it. We have seen the power of  this framework and love to help our clients utilize it in their businesses.

Am I required to use the Storybrand approach if I work with you?

You are not required to use the StoryBrand framework in your marketing approach when working with us. We do, however, highly recommend this approach as it is very successful in reaching your clients and building a trusting relationship with them.

What are the expectations for me as a client in engaging with customers on Social media?

We expect that you will answer and direct messages that are sent to your accounts and if there are questions we feel like we can’t answer, you can help us.

How do I know if my social media is working?

It takes time to build relationships on social media organically. It’s all about deepening the connection with your audience. During this time, we will help you measure engagement (likes, comments and shares).

In addition, we will talk about what that engagement should lead to for your business (more appointments, increased newsletter sign ups, more people signed up for your event, etc.) Most importantly we want your business to grow because of your social media presence. 

Do you do reporting of any kind for Social media?

We will do monthly reporting using our schedulers matrics system. It tells us:

  • Measurements of engagement and impression rates
  • Best days/times to post
  • Tops posts for that specific time period.

What if I’m not I’m not tech savvy?

That’s why we’re here! You don’t need to be super tech savvy to have a successful social media presence or thriving business. We are always an email away when it comes to helping you through challenges.
