1-on-1 Social Media Coaching
Are you using social media to enhance your referral reputation?
As your social media coach, I will take a deep dive into your web presence and then sit down with you 1-on-1 to review what works about your social media and what parts need more love. You will leave with updated social media pages and fresh ideas on how you can handle your social media without the headaches.
Working alone is hard. I am the person that is here to help take away that stress. I will help you build your confidence, check in with you every month to answer questions, teach you tips and tricks to succeed, and hold you accountable for the goals you want to achieve in order to improve your business’ social network.
What you need to know before signing up for a coaching session
The Support Package
Sherpa clients get ongoing one-on-one support with their marketing over the course of 3 months.
They each get a video audit that starts with a review of their current web presence.
Then we do a deep dive, two-hour-long session, that focuses on the two social media skills that are most relevant to you and gives you guidance on what your future clients need to hear.
We come up with an accountability plan built around you to make it happen.
Current clients can reach out to me between sessions.
Amanda Lydy, Interior Designer
“Shaily is energized and knowledgeable about social media and the importance of it in a small business person’s outreach and also the various components of the different platforms out there. She has hacks for every single one. She can filter what is applicable for most clients and provide a guideline about how to get caught up and get consistent information across all of [the platforms].
“She helped organize me, kept me accountable with a to-do list, and she did lesson plans which I thought was so cool and organized. This was particularly meaningful because [Shaily] has a greater knowledge base about this stuff. People like me have our expertise elsewhere, it’s so incredibly helpful because it can feel so overwhelming.
“What was helpful with [Shaily] is that it was about baby steps. It’s so overwhelming when you realize all the work you have to do but if you can just start with one step, and another day start with another step, it helps alleviate the overwhelming feeling. We do get so consumed with our own work that it’s hard to have time to invest in our own marketing. It’s very normal for your own marketing to fall by the wayside when you are working so hard on your other clients, but you do have to remember to take that time to reinvest in your own work. That is what Shaily does, she helps provide accountability to reinvest in your own marketing.
“She is every bit worth [the price] because she is bringing expertise to the table. Yeah, some person can dick around and figure out [social media] on their own. It’s the accountability that is the extra component that makes it so worth it because everything else gets lost in the shuffle and doesn’t get done. I really appreciated the emails, and loved knowing I could refer back to them at any time.”

Shaily has been running social media accounts for the last 5 years for various organizations and has been teaching and tutoring kids and adults for years beyond that. She is also a certified K-6 educator, who knew? She has the patience to work with you at your own pace and will not judge your starting point. She has specialized in motivational tutoring for kiddos and those skills are easily transferable to adults especially the more she gets to know you and what may be holding you back.
What you get:
What do you get for the money? We sit down for a 1-2 hour session depending on your schedule. You will get a few warm-up questions from Shaily via email in the days leading up to your session. Based on what you have told her your needs are, she will make an adaptable lesson plan to follow the day of. Though she cannot cover all your needs, Shaily does her best to make sure you leave with more information on your priority needs.
What to bring to the session:
The session works best if both you and Shaily have a computer in front of them.
Post Session Accountability:
What happens after? I hold you accountable. Before the session ends, I ask what is a realistic timeline to get done what you have set out for yourself. When I get home, I schedule a series of personalized emails to go out in the ideal intervals to remind you of what you hoped to accomplish.
One customer said she needed to work on writing more blogs but only needed a reminder every 2-3 weeks. So I set that up for her. One client said she liked working on strict deadlines and procrastinating before sessions. I set up emails that emphasized the deadline being our next session. My customers can then respond to those emails with any updates or questions they had between sessions.
Scope and relationship beyond the session:
If you have purchased a session from me in the past month, I am happy to answer small questions that come up over time. I trust that you will use your business sense to ask within reason and will let you know if you ask too much. I am generally very open. *I am even more generous if I can reply to your email in a voice message.
Extra Check in Session:
If you booked a session within the last month, I am super flexible on spending time answering your questions over email.
Most sessions are virtual over Zoom.
It's the time to get to where you prefer to meet. I live in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago. I sometimes work out of an office near The Bean. Around once a week, I am out of a location in Lincolnshire, IL. I can drive to you if there is readily available free parking. I prefer not to go too far from these areas.
Let’s chat and see if there is a great location that works for you that I can easily get to. I have found coworking spaces work well. Crowded coffee shops are a bit harder. Finding a space where we can both talk out loud without interrupting others around us is the goal.
I love payments over Venmo, Paypal, or Zelle. I am also happy to take physical checks or online checks mailed out through your bank account.
Most major banks offer Zelle. It goes directly from your bank account to mine in a blink of an eye. Open up your banking app or web browser to Zelle and use this specific email as where you want to direct the payment: firstname.lastname@example.org (keep in mind that it may ask for an email or phone number, please only use this email)
I also have my PayPal set up under email@example.com. You can send money from your account to my account. I can also send an invoice where you can pay online. I may collect additional convenience fees for these options.
What hours are you generally available?:
I am generally available Tuesday-Friday between 9am-4pm central.
What is your cancelation policy?
I ask that you cancel 48 hours in advance if you cannot make the session. If you cancel within 24 hours, I reserve the right to charge for the full session. When I block out time for you, I have to say no to others. I set up my schedule to make sure I am in the best spot to serve you. I take this very seriously. I know things do come up. I try to be flexible and accommodating.
