DIGITAL MEDIA MANAGER
What it is a Digital Media Manager?
If you're a true small business, then you understand the phrase, "Time is money" in a way most people will never know. Why? Because if a task is going to be accomplished it's going to be accomplished by YOU! And isn't that the challenge you face? You need more time to manage social media and branding and EVERYTHING but if you stop producing, the jobs quit coming. It's a Catch 22. The good thing is that this type of business is my specialty and WE can do this!
So what exactly is it I can do as your Digital Media Manager? Let's start by defining what a typical Digital Media Manager does for clients. According to BetterTeam.com, Digital Media Managers are "in charge of planning and managing marketing campaigns that promote a company’s brand, products, and services. Their duties include planning campaigns, analyzing metrics, and identifying trends. They typically have experience in art direction and social media." Now, let's break that down to the "what's in it for my company" explanation.
I am able to offer as much as complete management of your digital universe or as little as creating a social media ad campaign you can use to replicate on your own.
I can start or takeover your social media and take it beyond your expectations. I've been using my personal page and fan pages for many years with great success but to best demonstrate what CAN be done I will use The Edge's Facebook page as an example. When I joined The Edge as a full time part of the morning show, one of the most important needs was someone who could leverage their skills and get The Edge noticed. When I took over the helm The Edge had just over 30k fans. That's a good number for a construction company but not the number one radio program in the state. We were actually among the worst. I am proud to tell you that today we are number one on social media with over 125k followers. Last check we reached over 400k with our posts with 207k engaged. The engagement rate is significant because that tells you how interactive your followers are. So, with your business social media, I can take it from simple and static to dynamic and delivering results. That can include creating a page, creating the right posts and content, adding followers and converting them to engaged clients, create ad campaigns, build up your brand online and a lot more.
We haven't even skimmed the surface of social media yet and you can already see where there's a high value. It all starts with a free consultation where we would discuss what your business needs are and what portion of them you would like me to manage.

Patrick Beam achieved his lifelong dream of becoming a radio personality when he was officially named cohost of Corey and Patrick In the Morning on 100.3 The Edge in 2013.
Prior to 2013, Patrick spent over 20 years in a highly successful sales and management career with companies such as Textron Financial, Comcast and Hank’s Fine Furniture.
Patrick graduated from Bryant High School in 1988 but joined the Arkansas Army National Guard prior to that by participating in the “split option” program that allowed new recruits to attend basic training during the summer of their Junior Year of high school and resume training upon graduation.
He was a member of the 212th Signal Battalion in Benton, Arkansas which was the only National Guard signal unit in the nation to be activated for the Desert Storm Conflict.
As part of the 212th for seven years, Patrick’s role was that of a Node Center Operator whose mission was to relay signals from the front lines to the brass in the rear and vice versa. In that role he was one of the pioneers in fielding Mobile Subscriber Equipment (MSE) which, at the time, was the most advanced communications equipment platform in the world.
In 2002, Patrick devised a plan for “breaking in” to radio. He established himself as a movie critic via internet blog and soon was writing movie reviews online and for three newspapers. This enabled him to reach out to The Corey and Jay Show (LICK 106.3) and offer a unique humorous segment about bad movies.
Within a couple years, Corey & Jay were fired and Patrick had moved on. When Corey & Jay returned to the airwaves on 100.3 KDJE in 2003, they reached out to Patrick and asked him to return. He did but no longer as a movie critic. Instead he rebranded himself as Patrick the Angry, Angry Viewer (subsequently Angry Patrick) in which he delivered a weekly rant on Fridays about people and subjects in pop culture. His catalog has almost surpassed 600 episodes.
With the success of his weekly bit, Patrick began offering a syndicated version to radio stations nationwide and was carried on multiple stations as far west as Denver and El Paso and as far east as Boston.
During this time Patrick entered the stand-up comedy arena and created the only stand-up comedy show that toured cities throughout the state choosing to work in non-traditional comedy venues vs a comedy club.
This led to a national tour to be booked whereby Patrick would perform in all of the cities he was aired on and route other comedy venues in between. Prior to that being finalized, Jay Hamilton retired from The Corey and Jay Show and Patrick auditioned. The rest is radio history.
In addition to being an on air personality and stand-up comedian, Patrick also does custom woodworking in his home shop, is a Digital Media Manager, wedding DJ and officiant, creates social media commercials and self-published his first book in 2019.
If you want to break through the clutter of social media then this is one of the most cost effective ways to do it!
Most commercial production is very expensive and may be more vanilla than engaging. Our creative approach is fun and our clients all have demonstrable results.
We will collaborate with you on the concept , create a sharable showcase of you and your business and launch it to over 20,000 followers in addition to giving you a digital copy to use as you wish!
Below are a few that have proven successful.
With over a decade of radio broadcasting, Patrick has literally performed thousands of voice productions including commercials, comedy bits, liners, promotions and, most recently, online course narration for the University of Arkansas Department of Criminal Justice.
Whether you are seeking a broadcast voice, marketing voice, character voice or anything in between, Patrick can deliver!
If you have a voiceover need that requires a unique voice and professional approach, then set up a FREE consultation!
If you are a true small business and in need of a website, what are you looking for in that website? It's an important question. There are small businesses that require a constantly changing front page, may need a heavy e-commerce platform or other high-intensity sites that require perpetual maintenance but the majority do not need that. Most businesses have a website to demonstrate credibility, show their basic offer and generate new clients. They are typically seeking a website that has a slick, professional feel but is static, for the most part.
The recurring fees for a standard website should be minimal . Most domains have an annual fee (with savings for two or three year deals) that is $30 or less. Maintenance fees are for companies that require a lot of updates and adjustments so, unless that's you, then why would you divert operating capitol for something you do not need?
That's why I offer a custom website for a flat fee and leave you with the ability to make minor changes (changing text, changing out photos, adding a new product, etc). There may be a time where you need my assistance. In that case, I can guarantee it will be less than if you paid me a monthly fee. Do I hate money? No. But I believe if I provide you what you need to be successful at a fair value, you will call me again for another service (of which I have many). Doing business that way has enabled me to do long term work for clients but it's the work THEY NEED instead of fees that don't grow your business.
If that sounds like the right kind of fit for your company, reach out and we'll do a free consultation and see if it's the right fit for your company needs.
