And Now, The Adventure Begins: Introducing Chuck Hester Enterprises
It’s official. As of 2 p.m. today, November 30, 2010: Chuck Hester Enterprises is open for business. The news release that is scheduled for later this week (are you kidding, I’m a PR guy, of course there’s a news release!) will read:
A PR and social media consultancy with a difference, Chuck Hester Enterprises offers marketing communications planning and execution, influencer relations; and social media training and seminars for “The Rest of Us.”
My wife, Stephanie and I have been blessed with friends, family and colleagues who have surrounded us as we transitioned from iContact, where I was Communications Director for almost five years, to “The Next Big Thing.” For that we are extremely grateful.
Although I was pretty sure this would happen, I’m humbled that it came together so quickly. I’ve always been an entrepreneur at heart and love the opportunity to help build companies and try new things. Chuck Hester Enterprises, or CHE as several of my friends have started to call it, is an opportunity to do just that, and to be happy doing it.
It is my goal to bring real-world and grounded business principals to my clients. I am offering initiatives that are based on experience and a true understanding of how to reach customers.
In the next few days I will officially announce the formation of the agency, and also let you know who my first four – yes four! – clients are and what they do.
For now, here’s a quick overview of the practice areas of my consultancy:
- PR and Social Media Strategy and Tactical Development – with the goal of building (or rebuilding) marketing communications programs
- LinkedIn Bootcamps – seminars designed to teach businesses how to use LinkedIn (in conjunction with other social media tools) effectively
- Influencer Outreach – using the techniques I have perfected over the past 7 years to help companies get their stories told by connecting to key influencers in their markets
- Speakers/Seminars – I am available for conferences, trade shows and organizations to speak on using social media for customer service; social media marketing; and how to use social media to pay it forward
- Online seminars and DVD courses – in the next several months I will be developing a series of online seminars and DVD based on Social Media for the Rest of Us – stay tuned!
So, that’s Chuck Hester Enterprises. Probably best summed up this way:
Not your typical consultancy, Chuck Hester Enterprises provides PR and Social Media services designed to reach influencers, increase a client’s profile and get their stories told to target audiences. The firm specializes in PR and Marketing Communications strategies and tactics; social media training and influencer relations.
The last five years have been amazing. When I got the news that I was no longer employed at iContact, I knew that there was something bigger around the corner. Now, I’ve found it. Chuck Hester Enterprises is open for business!
As always, let me know how I can be of service to you. I look forward to meeting you soon on this new and exciting journey.
Paying it forward,
