“The trainers at Go Social really know their stuff. Monica was my coach and she was able to help a beginner like me get started on several different social media sites. Now we’re rocking a Facebook page!”
“If you’re going to hire Go Social Experts, be ready to have a very active social media marketing campaign, because they definitely know what they’re doing. Before I hired Go Social Experts, I had started my facebook page for my business and quickly got about 30 followers (friends I had invited) and I had some content to put on two or three times a week, and was regularly having a read of 10-15 per posting. Now I have 128 followers (and counting) and a recent post about a sale we have going on right now has a reach of 5,466 (put up the post Tuesday evening, and it’s now Friday morning.)
I’ve also had Go Social Experts teach me about twitter, pinterest, email marketing, and Google+. I haven’t had the time to do much with each of these items individually, but as I hire more people and train them to do these things, I fully anticipate these achieving the same reach as what we’ve been doing with our facebook page.”

“After meeting with Go Social Experts, it really opened my eyes to the ways to start working “smarter” not “harder” when it comes to my social media. Within just 20 min. of sitting down to review my business with Brian, he had helped me identify ways to make my efforts stronger, in less time AND how to convert social media leads into company assets. This has helped me create much more “quality” vs. “quantity” with my social media efforts. No matter what level you are at with social media, if you have not taken the opportunity to meet with Go Social Experts for their free analysis, you are working much harder than needed. Give Brian a call today, I am so glad that I did!

Having had marketing consultants before, the best part of Brian’s services is that he was in business for himself for so long that he doesn’t lose sight of the big picture by only focusing on the marketing. He understands how difficult time management is for small businesses and how to implement processes and procedures that will have a more permanent success rate by simplifying the workload of the employees. He also understands labor, accounting and most importantly customer service and how simply marketing something well doesn’t mean it will succeed.
In short, I believe you will be very happy with his services and wish you the best of luck. Should you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.
Brian Hahn is a marketing guru. Each time we work together I learn so much valuable information it’s like drinking water from a fire hydrant. Brian is the most knowledgeable professional I know when it comes to marketing, Social Media, and overall business strategy. He is a real asset to me. I highly recommend Brian!
Just reviewed the activity log. I LOVE what I saw. Your posts are so beautiful.
Thank you for the time and effort you put into our Facebook page.
We worked with Brian from Go Social Experts in January of 2014. Our Facebook page growth had stalled, and we weren’t getting as much engagement from our fans as I would have liked. Brian worked with us to develop and implement a plan to increase our presence on Facebook as well as to engage our fans. Our audience has grown from 651 fans the day before we started working with Brian to 2143 in 45 days. The fans we attracted are in our target audience. We are thrilled with the results Brian helped us achieve. We are continuing to use the strategies Brian taught us, and are seeing business results from our Facebook page.
912 Graham Avenue is an 8 bedroom 3 bathroom student rental. With renting to the student market 912 Graham must be rented at a certain time of the year to maximize the rental income. That certain time is October through December. This house rents for over $33,000 per year, so if you miss on the timing, the costs is thousands of dollars. The 2013 – 2014 rental season we were getting poor response. We used Facebook advertising to target student aged persons and got some additional apartment showings from Facebook. Our website found an interested student that actually signed the lease though (he could have just as well been nabbed from Facebook though). He came by himself and looked at the house. He liked it and posted our video tour of 912 Graham on his Facebook account. He had all of his roommates view the video on Facebook. They liked what they saw and applied to rent the apartment with just what they saw from the video. Their applications were approved. We met later at the house. The applicants did a real quick walk through the house as verification of video. Then we went directly to our office and signed a lease. After signing the lease, we post a “thank you” on Facebook. This thank you has the first names of the person that signed the lease and a photo of the house. The house photo has the red letters “rented” across it. This “thank you ” posting on our Facebook account was viewed by friends of the new 912 Graham tenants. They liked our post and commented, “…you are now world famous…” and this comment went micro viral through their Facebook friends. The date we signed the lease was Jan. 20, 2014.
I’ve got 20 years of experience in online marketing, and yet I was striking out with Facebook advertising; I was frustrated and felt like a dunce because my Facebook ads weren’t getting any clicks, or the clicks they did get were terribly unqualified leads.
Brian and his team stepped in, created new ads, and started driving highly targeted leads to my landing pages — without breaking the bank.
We all know vendors who over-promise and under-deliver. Especially when it comes to social media, where anybody can hang out a shingle and claim to be an expert. That’s why I’m such a huge fan of Brian Hahn and Go Social Experts. They truly are experts at combining solid direct-response marketing principles (which never change) with Facebook and other social media (which change every 15 minutes).
Go Social Experts are total pros and I can’t recommend too highly!!
I can rely on Brian to always be in touch with what’s new and up and coming with Facebook and Social Media. He has brought several resources to my attention to help improve our Facebook page, such as photo editing websites (Canva), digital document files (Dropbox), and various blogs (Jon Loomer) which I have found to be very helpful. In my opinion, the fastest way and quite frankly, my favorite way I have learned to increase our Facebook “likes” and interaction with our Fans is through Contests. When Brian and I started working together, he explained to me all of the services that his Company can provide to us including creating contests, from the coding to the layout to the selection of winners! Not having an artistic bone in my body, I was able to rely on one of his talented employees to fully design, create and upload a contest for us, with little to no problem. I simply gave his employee the “vision”, colors and concept of how I wanted the contest to operate and he was able to execute the design, layout and overall structure of how our contest would look and flow. Once everything was in place, I was able to review the final product in the “test” mode on our Facebook page to see what it would look like and what our fans would experience once it went live. Our contest ran for 45 days and we promoted our Contest through Facebook only. Our main objective was to get more “Likes” on our Facebook page, while also promoting our business and the fact that we are a wedding venue. We required entrants to provide a photo and a story that included how the couple met, how he proposed and why they deserve a dream wedding. Our prize package was worth over $4,000 and was awarded to the entrant who received the most votes. In order to vote, you had to first “Like” our Facebook page and we only allowed 1 vote per Facebook account. When we started our Contest on October 2nd, 2013, we had 186 Facebook Likes on our page. When our contest ended on November 15th, 2013, we had 897 Facebook Likes; that’s a 500% increase with 711 NEW Likes! We had over 30 entrants and by the end, our winner had received 1,000+ votes. We promoted our Facebook Page through Power Editor using Sponsored Stories and Images to draw attention to our Contest. We spent just under $680 to promote our Wedding Day Giveaway and booked 2 Weddings in addition to our winner from our Contest. We were more than thrilled with the results, as our Wedding Page was just getting started prior to our Contest! As of now, we currently have over 1,300 Likes on our Wedding Page and I think our Wedding Day Giveaway, and Go Social Experts, deserves a lot of credit for the success our page has received! It has been a delight getting to know Brian on a business level and as a friend. Since we started working together, we have gained confidence in one another and challenge each other on a weekly basis. I can rely on Brian to have answers to my questions in a timely fashion and to be there when I need help making my vision become a concept on Facebook or to simply help me find the right photo size for an advertisement. When I started in the Social Media Management position, I was not confident in my ability with a Business Facebook page. Brian has helped me to understand the concept of a Business page and why it’s important to have a Business page with the appropriate “voice”. With the help of the Go Social Experts team and the mentoring from Brian, our Facebook pages have grown rapidly within the past year and I am very thankful to Brian for not only helping me create goals, but how to achieve them and beyond.
The longer I managed Eau Claire Dairy Queen’s Facebook page, the harder it was for me to come up with fun ideas to draw in more likes and essentially more customers. Brian helped me to come up with interactive ideas for our followers, such as “caption this photo,” and “fill in the blank” segments on our page. These helped grow our totals numbers because when someone would comment on our picture, all of their Facebook friends would be able to see it in their news feed. In turn, it would open up the possibility of getting more likes, more customers.
