Attracting Customers through Social Media Marketing & Management for Small & Local Businesses
At Virtual Visibility Media, it’s our mission to help local and small businesses become more visible online. Too few small and local business owners take advantage of Social Media Marketing.

However, as a locally based Buffalo SEO & digital marketing company, our goal is simple:

A Small Business Social Media Marketing Plan That Works
You’ll likely find that we’re different from the other small business social media marketing companies. Specifically, we’re different in that our chief expertise is in organic search and SEO strategies.
This experience and expertise gives us a different analytical approach than what most others might have. With us, you’ll find that we create strategies that help you grow your social media engagements. We’ll also be able to increase what’s called referral traffic from social media to your site. However, to continue helping your business prosper, we’ll also create specific landing pages for you – designed to convert these potential customers.
This way, not only will we be able to help improve or set up your social media platform presence. We’ll also help you increase your sales, as well as improve your rankings in search results.
Creating High Quality Content for Ranking Factors and Conversion
One of the reasons many small businesses fear diving into social media is that they think no one would be interested. The second big worry is that they think they’re competing against large national companies. The good news is that neither is correct. You’d be surprised what you can achieve – how people love and are endeared to local businesses. You just need to tap into that love and connection.
Your Character & Profile
Whether you’re a small city hardware store, a boutique clothing shop, or a furniture store – you and your employees are the soul of your small business – and that means something to the audience we’ll be targeting.
Our Social Media Strategy
We’re here to bring you, your business, and your products into the limelight. Our strategies are focused on making that happen – not replicating what works for Fortune 500 companies.
Your Connection to Your Audience
Through our social media plan, we’ll introduce your business to people who can benefit from it. This connection will bring value both to you and your future customers.
This is where we want to create a social media strategy that evolves from your and your business’ character and story. If you’re thinking that you don’t really have a narrative that will “entertain” or “sell,” don’t worry. Give us a call, we can have a no-obligation talk about your business and let’s see what we can do. There’s no harm at least looking into what your story can be, right?
Unique landing pages to funnel your audience
Many who hire social media consultants or companies feel that they only get a templated approach to their social media profiles. The social media presence and activity might be spot on – but there’s a disconnect. There’s a lack of cohesion between the social media activities and how it translates to sales and monetary value. We bridge that division with our experience.
We’re used to being part of a holistic digital marketing effort. We find unique landing pages should be created specifically for one particular social media project, initiative, or campaign. This is where our core expertise comes to the forefront. We can create pages on your website that attract new visitors through search queries. Not only that, these pages will work to funnel social media leads to your site.
It’s entirely optional whether you choose to let us create these unique social media SEO landing pages for you, but we highly recommend it.
Social Media is for all – not for the few
Much of the criticism of social media marketing we’ve come across is that it’s only for the big brands – those international and nationwide companies with resounding name recognition. Some tend to think that social media is just for the glamorous and fancy brands that are “cool” enough. We disagree wholeheartedly.
Share your unique character and prosper
There are few things as important as authenticity when it comes to social media marketing. It’s a critical factor in whether you’ll benefit from social media or not. Regardless of whether your business is an attorney firm, a building or hardware store, insurance or banking, veterinary practice, florist, or a security service – you have a persona that your audience can connect with. We want to help you make that voice heard, and for it to translate into visitors and loyal customers.
After all, the true value and strength of a small business is that customers can develop a connection to the owners and employees – a feat no Fortune 500 company can actually boast.
It is that voice and connection that we want to tailor our Social Media strategy to. We believe that it can help bring you success online and give you the social signals you need to grow.
What we can do for your Social Media presence
The big question for many is “what does a social media consultant/company actually do?” It can seem vague to think of followers, retweets, likes, repins, and how many are sharing content. However, the practical activities we’ll put in place for you are the following:
- Develop a social media strategy
- Create a social media schedule
- Create and post content to social profiles
- Respond quickly to fans and followers
- Engage with others on social platforms
- Create social media advertising campaigns
- Manage contests and giveaways
- Tracking performance over time
That might sound like a lot. It certainly can be, but it all depends on scaling and how much you want to invest. Many social media companies price a simple campaign anywhere between $3,000.00 to $10,000.00, but that’s not how we do things. We want to make sure that our activities are scaled to fit your business’ budget – while maintaining excellent quality, support, and results.
