Hello, my name is Janar Nevski and I am running my own painting business this summer as part of my intern program.  I am looking for qualified people that will help market our services throughout the rest of Spring.  I’m offering flexible hours with very good pay.

Bangs Lake Properties in Wauconda

Bangs Lake Properties

As of today, there are about 15 homes listed that are either on the shore of Bangs Lake, with a view of the lake, within walking distance of the lake, or at the least, have water rights on Bangs Lake.  On the lower end, small cottages are available for as low as $79,000, and on the higher end, there is a luxury 4 bedroom home backing right up to the lake for under $400,000…truly something for everyone.


What Bangs Lake Has to Offer

Bangs Lake has so much to offer, thus attracting many water enthusiasts, from full time residents to Chicago weekenders, to summer cottage dwellers.  On any given summer day, you will see everything on the lake….morning fisherman, kayakers, and stand up paddle boarders, afternoon water skiers, jet skiers, and families on pontoons, and sunset watchers in the evening.


Dock’s Bar & Grill, Lindy’s Landing and Wauconda Boat

Fun can always be had at Lindy’s Landing and Dock’s Bar & Grill.  Water craft services are available at Wauconda Boat. With prices and interest rates at low, great value levels, there is no better time than now to make that lake property investment.

With Spring and Summer around the corner, are thoughts of spending time on or near the water crossing your mind?  Have you ever considered buying a home on or near the Lake?  If so, Wauconda may be the place for you.

Why Hire A Social Media Strategist

TOP 10 Reasons Why You Should Hire A Social Media Strategist:

1)  Because you think a “hashtag” is something you eat for breakfast.

2)  Because no one barely comments, likes or shares any of your posts.

3)  Because you think Facebook should be used for nothing other than to broadcast all about your promotions, free giveaways and your daily specials.

4)  Because you think posting on other people’s walls and asking them to like your page is a form of engagement.

5)  Because you think “tagging” on Facebook is child’s play.

6)  Because you’re running out of ideas on what to post or tweet about.

7)  Tweet?  What tweet?!

8)  Because you have no idea of what engagement is and you’re deathly afraid of commitment.

9)  Because you don’t know if you should engage with someone or ignore them, because last time you clicked on a link they sent you, your account was hacked!

10)  Because you don’t have time to run your own business.

I’ll be honest, social media is not hard to master, however, social media takes a lot of time to master!  Social media is not a one and done type of approach.  Social media is something that needs to be attended to on a consistent basis.  Picture a pool of water, if you throw a pebble (content) in the water (social media platform) it will create a wave (your message).  Doing so on a consistent basis, will resonate a message to people.  If done correctly, it will resonate a message that will leave a positive impact with your audience.  If you don’t continue to throw something in the water, the water will remain still and become stagnant.  Moral of the story, if you want to be heard, you need to continually manage, maintain and monitor your social media initiatives.

You have a business to run.  My business is to help you so you can have more time to run your business.  I have been developing social media strategies for several years and my clients range in size and industry — from financial start-up to biotech contract lab and manufacturer, to photographer, sporting goods rental, wine bar and family-owned restaurant.  I believe social media is all about building relationships. If you want that relationship to thrive, you need to constantly nurture it.

Contact me today and I’ll teach you the art of social media engagement.
