My sister and I were unemployed and living at our parents home. My life had completely changed, I had gone through a difficult divorce and left my full-time teaching job. Lacey had been working an exhausting job as a video editor at a local news station when they cancelled her show.
In February 2009, I began tutoring my first student and found I really enjoyed the sense of accomplishment that came along with developing students in a one on one setting and experienced a lot of success. Referrals came freely and my schedule became very full. I decided to expand.
Lacey went back to school, taking graphic design classes and had been learning website design on her own.
I asked if she would help me with my business. She created The Tutoring Solution logo and built a website. When the website went up, almost immediately, people began to find us online.
This was cool!
For months we added content to our website; using blogs, pictures and videos. But, I also wanted to direct people to my website and needed to find an inexpensive way to do that. Facebook and Twitter provided me with a free way to promote my business.
That’s when The Tutoring Solution took off.
My sister and I attributed our success to our efforts in Social Media. We did more research and began to attend classes, read articles, communicated with successful companies and kept up to date on best practices for Social Media.
Jennifer Davis from Scrapbook Expo was the first business owner we talked to about developing a Social Media campaign for their brand. Jennifer was already active on Facebook and had generated a massive following. I asked her if she would be willing to let me run a Twitter campaign for her company. Welborn Social Media was born.
Many other companies began hearing about us through a variety of different avenues. Currently we do Social Media and graphic design work for the Creative Scrapbook Source, DLT Growers, Los Serranos Country Club, Scrapbook Expo, System 1, The Tutoring Solution and WireSpeed Systems.
