WANTED: Local Talent for In-House Social Media Management

We'll be the first to admit it: Acme's presence on Facebook and our blog has been a little lax. There's an honest reason for our slackness, but it's not our style to make excuses for jobs poorly done.

Instead, consider this our plea for help. We're looking for a 20- or 30-something chopper guy who loves motorcycles and the Internet to help us do a better job with blog posting, FB status updates, viral videos, and all the other stuff that's important for making cool brands tick in the 21st century.

It would be ideal if this man (or woman!) lived near our shop, which is Laconia, NH.

What's in it for us? A more honest and dependable two-way dialogue between Acme and all our friends and customers.

What's in it for the person we choose to be the Acme Social Media Guru?

• Access to our shop, our tools and our talents for bike building
• Free t-shirts and apparel
• Free or really cheap parts for your bike
• Great deals on any donor bikes and parts you find laying around our shop

Eventually this position could turn into a paying gig, but right now we're just looking for someone who can manage our profiles on Facebook and ChopCult, shoot photos of the hundreds of projects we start and finish every month, write some basic blog and status updates on our blog and FB wall, and answer emails we get about catalogs, t-shirts, sticker and a dozen other little things that fill our work day.

It's a no-paying job right now, but if you've got the talent and the interest to use our resources and to share our passion for custom motorcycles with the rest of the world, it could turn into something that makes money for everyone.

If you're interested, send me an email. I'd ask you to PM me on Facebook, but the truth is, I rarely have time to check my profile!

Thanks in advance for all your support.

Wayne Ahlquist


  1. Social media guru must know the web, it involves jargon such as adding friend, adding, tweeting, and commenting. It involves both listening, and talking, both being there for friends, and engaging strangers, and it all is done on a daily basis by virtually everyone that is buying your stuff on the internet.
