Seattle, WA, August 28, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Business owners often get overwhelmed with long work hours and time consuming projects that they can’t complete. Many are drowning and know they need help, yet they don’t know where to get it. A few interns could be all the help they need.
Many businesses, especially small businesses, are unaware of the tremendous value and return on investment that a strategically-planned and well-run internship program can provide. Any business (or non-profit) of any size, from a part-time, home-based, one-person business to a large corporation, can have interns.
“For some, getting this extra help can literally be the difference between a business closing their doors forever or doubling their revenues in a short period of time,” stated Super Michelle Demers, Co-founder and ½ of the Dynamic Duo of Super Interns. “We’ve helped hundreds of businesses and non-profit organizations to maximize the talent interns can provide and have given over 3,000 interns the skills and work experience they need to land bigger and better jobs."
Super Interns offers consulting, systems, tools, management, and support to build (or improve) internship programs focused on creating win-win working/learning engagements for businesses and their interns. Additionally they recruit and place interns – who are ready to go – to help businesses succeed.
So how can you double your business with interns? Here are five internships that can do just that:
1. Business Development Interns
2. Marketing Interns
3. Blogging Interns
4. Public Relation Interns
5. Social Media Interns
1. Business Development Interns can quickly increase revenues through market research, lead generation and tracking, sales support, customer service, networking, new product and service development, and more. Much of this work can be done by virtual interns working from home. Especially for businesses just starting out, these extra hands provide much needed help in the growing process.
2. Marketing Interns can work in all aspects of online and offline marketing, from email campaigns, to pricing and packaging, and promotions. They can also do event planning and fundraising, as well as work on marketing plans and big picture business marketing strategies. Pretty much anything marketing-related, interns can do or play a pivotal role.
3. Blogging Interns edit, create, and post fresh content, keeping the blog up-to-date and relevant. Blogging establishes expert credibility, gives exposure, increases search engine optimization, drives traffic to the website and new customers that increase the bottom line.
4. Public Relations Interns interns can put you on the map in a big way. These interns focus on gaining press coverage through all media outlets, online/offline newspapers, magazines, and other printed publications, radio spots, television appearances, internet, speaking engagements, and other promotional opportunities.
5. Social Media Interns can take your social media presence to a whole new level, helping you leverage and maximize what social media platforms, like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+, and others, can do. Social media helps to connect with people in a variety of ways and increase visibility, strengthen branding, create a community of customers and fans. It generates a buzz that can even go viral, giving you massive exposure, that can also result in increased sales.
When you combine all of these positions working together at their highest potential, it becomes a perfect storm, where the cumulative positive effect is exponential.
“Some of my very best employees have come to us as interns. It really helps a number of things," noted CEO and Founder of GoDaddy Group, Bob Parsons. “First, it gives the individual experience in the job world, but second, it is a great way for businesses to find new talent and develop them.”
