Ely Social takes the best parts of a full-service digital marketing agency and a boutique digital marketing agency and combines them into a unique business model designed to meet all your online marketing needs. We offer all the services of a full-service agency with the personal attention of a boutique.
Whether you need a new website, someone to manage your social media, or assistance with a product launch, a full-service agency does it all. They’re a convenient one-stop shop for all of your digital marketing needs. But they don’t often pay attention to what you and your business need. They don’t want to sit down with you to create a custom service package to execute your vision – they want you to pick a few things off their list of predefined services and let them get to work.
We take the benefits of a full-service digital marketing agency – being that one-stop shop for everything online marketing – and drop the requirement to stick to any kind of predefined services. We do web design, search engine optimization, content marketing, social media, copywriting, and more, and we’ll work with you to provide exactly what your business needs. And if what your business needs is to pick something off a predefined list of services and let us handle the details, well, we do that too.
Boutique digital marketing agencies are often small and offer limited services. But what they lack in options, they make up for in personalization, customization, and creativity. A boutique agency wants to build a relationship with you and give you exactly what you need, without charging for a bunch of extras you’ll never use. They are much more flexible with the few services they do offer, and their creativity and innovation are especially beneficial for smaller businesses.
We offer all the services you would find at a full-service agency, but our focus is always completely on you. You will work with just one consultant who you can build a relationship with, and we will work with you to determine which services you need (and which ones you don’t) and customize a plan for reaching your goals.
What you get when you work with us
You will work one-on-one with a dedicated marketing specialist who you can build a relationship with over the course of your project. That specialist will become an expert in you – your business, your industry, your goals, and the steps to take to achieve those goals.
Since every business is unique, the only way for us to make sure you are completely satisfied is to tailor our services to your business. Though we do offer out-of-the-box options if that’s what you’re looking for, we are happy to fully customize our services to your needs.
Whatever it is you want out of online marketing, we can do it. We have done everything from social media campaigns to web design to WordPress training. Check out our services, or contact us for more information.
About the Founder
When Jalyn Ely Girardot was in middle school, she decided she was going to be a writer, and the best way to get someone to publish her novel was to get a lot of followers on social media. Four websites, two abandoned Twitter accounts, and hundreds of hours of research later, she had a stack of publisher rejection letters and a solid understanding of online marketing.
In 2011, Jalyn started her first business and discovered that online marketing was useful for more than trying to get a book published. She eventually sold that business and spent several more years in corporate marketing jobs, often as the only person in the marketing team, doing everything from designing websites to search engine marketing to running entire marketing campaigns. Her efforts grew one company’s Instagram following by 850%, brought over 50,000 views to a single article, and started and managed nine different blogs (luckily not all at the same time).
Any time she mentioned she worked in digital marketing, someone would talk about how they needed a new website, or they weren’t sure how to get their business on social media, or they weren’t entirely sure if online advertising was a good plan and they wished they had someone to give them advice. Jalyn realized that she was completely qualified to help people navigate the complexities of online marketing.
Jalyn launched Ely Social in 2018 with a small but rapidly growing client list and a dream of helping businesses of all kinds succeed online. The skills that she picked up across her years of experience made her able to do everything digital marketing, from search engine optimization to designing social media graphics to email launch campaigns. Her jack-of-all-trades toolbox of skills helps her tailor her services to meet your business’s needs, no matter what they are, so your business can succeed online.
