Manic Social Media Solutions, owned and operated by Jennifer Grantham, provides a one-stop solution for small businesses to manage their social media marketing and presence.

Grantham returned to Haywood County from Fort Hood, Texas, in 2013 after her husband’s tour of duty in Iraq, and realized that Haywood County was still not utilizing social media in an effective way compared to other tourist rich markets.

She has spent the last year analyzing the usage of restaurants, lodging and real estate agents here in Haywood County and it caused her great concern.

“So many small businesses in this area throw their hands up and say ‘We aren’t using these platforms, and that is all well and good,’” said Grantham. “The problem with that is that their customers are — so we are not meeting their needs and expectations.”

A new business initiative was born out of that concern.  Manic Social Media Solutions serves its clients by building, managing and coaching small businesses on effective social media strategies. Grantham wants to take her message to Haywood County businesses and spearhead a dramatic change in the way that they use social media.

“I was here during the recession that hit in 2008,” she said. “We lost everything, and watched so many other small businesses do the same thing. However, almost six years later, we are not seeing the same level of tourism. Maggie Valley is a ghost town and it shouldn’t be. I am still disheartened with the amount of business real estate that sits vacant.”

Social media marketing is fast becoming the go-to method of business branding and marketing, but small business owners know that the day-to-day management of their operations is often all they can handle. Manic Social Media Solutions has the solution for business owners in and around Haywood County.

Grantham is a leading expert in personal branding for small businesses trying to make a big impact. She has extensive marketing experience both for her own businesses and for others over the last 10 years. She understands the demands that being a sole proprietor require, and is passionate about partnering with local businesses to draw clients to their brands, to support and strengthen our local economy.

“Manic Social handles the mania of social media marketing and branding in an affordable structure so that business owners can concentrate on the details of growing their business,” said Grantham. “We are here to simplify and strengthen social media presence for our local businesses, by building and managing brands across multiple social media platforms, and by training and equipping owners and employees to understand and utilize these platforms to their fullest advantage.”
