Web, social, back end operations: it’s digital dirty work.
We do it, so you can focus on what you do best.

 
 Hi, I'm Seth Werkheiser, and I run Close Mondays!

Close Mondays works with independent music publicists (mostly), managing their websites, social media accounts, and back end operations.

What if you could offload a bunch of your "busy work" to someone to handle? How much more could you focus on your existing clients?

 

WEBSITE Maintenance

Looks are everything, so make sure your website is current. We'll work together to make sure your active roster is up to date, and your press releases are posted to your site (they show up in search results, which is a good thing).

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT

Your social media feeds are a showcase, so make sure they look damn good. Also, your bands, their managers, and labels see when you tag 'em. Don't have time to tag 10 posts a day on Twitter and Facebook? Send it our way.

 
 

COVERAGE REPORTING

You're a publicist, so stop doing data entry.  Every hour you spend managing your own reports is time you're not focusing on your  most important work.  Stop messing around in Google Sheets or Coverage Book, and let us do your data entry so you can reclaim hours every month.

BACK END OPERATIONS

Domain name management, website overhauls, design tweaks, email list clean ups, graphic design, press release and bio writing, Slack set ups, Mailchimp admin, template designs for press releases, A/B testing - digital dirty work is what we do.

Stop Doing It All

How many more clients could you take on if you didn't have to manage everything on your own? What if your team could focus on pitching, rather than data entry?  

Just imagine...

You've got 23 emails in your inbox from media outlets and writers with their links to coverage you secured. Now you get to send those links to us to file into your reports, and publish (and properly tag) on your social media channels. 

Uh oh. That last email campaign went out but had 100+ bounces. Let me know and we'll figure out why (and fix it).

You're drowning in email. You've heard people talk about Slack, but you've got no time to research it, let alone set it up and test it out.

Do you live out of your inbox? Every time you look at it to find something, you subject yourself to more distractions (and those distractions add up). Get important details out of your inbox and into Trello, or Evernote, which makes it easier to focus and share important information with your team.

You know you should scrub your email lists. Do you have the time to find the 100+ people who haven't opened a single email since 2015? We can do that.

Up to your eyeballs with work and need a bio written? Or a press release for a new project? Give us the details and we'll take it from there.

There's something on your WordPress site that needs fixing, but your "web guy" takes two weeks to get back to you. At Close Mondays we don't disappear, so we'll help you get your website back in working order.

Your email went down... again. It's 2018 - it's time to switch to Google's G-Suite, and we can do that for you.
