Our Services

We offer impeccable social media marketing services such as building your brand in visuals with custom photography, videography, and content creation. We grow your audience through blog marketing, ad management, contests, content calendar development, and search engine optimization. Our programs are annual agreements. Below is the process of how we work with our VIP clients.

Step 1. Social Why

We start with branding to help you to establish your true message – Your Social Why. This involves an exercise we give you to create your individual branding message. We then do a photo shoot with you in San Francisco to ensure you look amazing. These images will be the basis of your Social Why posts for the next year. Next we create a Social Why video where you get to wax poetic about your message. This will be the core video that you promote strongly for the next year.

Step 2. Social KickStart

Our first campaign with you is a 3-month launch to introduce you to your audience. We create your social strategy and plan (this is paramount to your success to have this defined with measures each step of the way), a content calendar with 5 social posts each day that get shared among different social networks that are targeted to your audience, and your own individual social marketing training and actions.

Step 3. Social Execution

The next 9 months, we have monthly calls, and weekly checkin’s to ensure your needs are being met, and we are performing.

Our Founders

John Wayne Zimmerman


John Wayne Zimmerman is a Social Media Maverick, having penned THE resource for Facebook Marketing, The Complete Idiots Guide for Facebook Marketing. John walks the walk, and has enough swagger to shake the Golden Gate Bridge. John is technical, analytical, hysterical, lyrical, and fun. Having spoken at conferences, seminars, and events around the world, John has been seen by tens of thousands of engaged fans. Some brave souls even call him “The Duke.”

Jeremy DeWeese


Jeremy DeWeese is a Visual Virtuoso, an expert in all things pertaining to Photography, Videography, Art and writing copy for sales pages and websites. Jeremy is also an accomplished speaker, regularly bringing rooms of people to their feet, dancing around with joy. But if you want to know what he is best at, get him in a one on one conversation sometime, and see how clear you feel after he gets done with you. He listens more effectively than cassette player on record mode. He knows what is important to you and is committed that you fulfill upon every dream and desire.

Our Mission

We believe in the human spirit, the desire to connect, the need to be heard, and we believe that every entrepreneur has a great message to share. Our programs will help you get there – to be known – to make a difference.

We work for entrepreneurs with families. We work hard and smart so you can get it all done on social and still have time for those you love. We believe a well-balanced life is one worth living. And whether they are your intimate family, close fiends or extended community – they deserve your attention and you deserve the time to enjoy them. With us as your partners, we will help you get there so you can live a life you love.

We are committed to getting you results that matter, and making the process fun and easy. Our biggest pleasure is to teach, so if you are here to learn, you are in the right place.

Watch for our videos, social posts, programs, and live events as we wax poetic on all things social. When possible, we will bring you Thought leaders to weigh in on the topics on the day that most impact and help you. Our blog subscribers will always get the inside scoop.

Be warned that we are sometimes unconventional, rough around the edges, and definitely not always perfectly polished. Consider it, well, part of our charm. You, on occasion, will fall out of your chair, laugh so hard you pee yourself, or even gasp in amazement that we said something so brash. If you are uptight, or easily offended, you may not dig our occasional ludicrous but well intentioned antics.

We truly love our fans and we invite you to become one today.

  • John Wayne and Jeremy are the best money you will spend on social branding and messaging. They showed me how to get truly aligned with my message. And now I am on my path for the next 10 years. It’s very exciting.

  • I could not have asked for a faster response and ROI. Within a day during the holidays, John & Jeremy were on top of all my social accounts. My social leads went to 900+ newsletter subscribers, 900+ Twitter followers and 2,000+ Facebook fans in just a month.

  • We brought John Wayne as a keynote to our annual conference last year. He was a entertaining, informational, and inspiring. Our members got the grasp of how the new frontier of social media can add to their bottom line and were extremely excited.

    Janelle Anderson, Wisconsin Papers
  • The American Association of Medical Assistants decided to work with John & Jeremy and are very happy with the partnership. We’ve developed a solid strategy, organizational processes, and we achieved 12,000+ Facebook fans in less than a year. In a time of recession and not knowing where to put marketing dollars – we made the right choice.

    Jean Lynch, AAMA
  • Our fans on Facebook have more than doubled. Our monthly active users have quadrupled. And our page is seeing more activity than it ever has! Thank you, John and Jeremy for really adding value to our organization.
