Online Presence & Brand Consulting

Greg has been called an expert in social media. Greg founded and ran his own social media marketing firm that catered to businesses. Greg also frequently consults with churches, businesses, and non-profits in the area of social media, branding, and online presence. The advantage of this package is there are no travel costs (no flight, rental car, meals or hotel). Greg can do all his work on your online presence from the comfort of his home.

Greg will do a thorough evaluation of your organization’s online presence and then give you a detailed report, which he can go over via conference call or video chat (as he has done for a number of organizations). Greg will give you insight, feedback based on research and areas for improvement. Each consultation includes a plan of action steps for your organization to take in order to make a bigger impact.


  • Based on the size of the church, nonprofit, or business and how much “ground” there is to cover.
