About CLR Virtual Connection

Welcome to CLR Virtual Connection – helping you proactively manage the social side of your business through authentic connections & engagement.

I’m Rebecca Thompson, a social media consultant and strategist who assists small business owners with increasing the quality of their social media presence and online communities. I love social media and thrive on using it to increase brand awareness and gain visibility for my clients.

My passion is for building authentic relationships

“Build it, and they will come” only works in the movies. Social Media is a “build it, nurture it, engage them, and they may come and stay.” – Seth Godin

I love this quote by marketer and author Seth Godin. I tell people all the time that social media is about being authentic and engaging with your community. A lot of people think they can just put something up on a website or social network and say “ok come see it,” but that’s not how it works. Whether you are an individual, a small business or a large corporation, you have to build what’s known as the “know, like, trust” factor. You have to engage with people—your friends, your customers, your fans—and gain their trust. Once you achieve that, then you will have an authentic and valuable relationship with them. Your customers will become your best advocates.

Since 2008, I’ve been building authentic online relationships for MY customers. Cultivating these relationships comes natural to me, but social marketing is ever-changing, so I’m always learning and currently hold several certifications (as a Social Media Strategist, Internet Marketing Specialist, HootSuite Professional and Certified Master Microsoft Office User Specialist). I was listed as one of Houston’s Top Social Media Power Influencers in 2013  and 2014. I like to think outside the box and am always up for a challenge – let me do the social media stuff you don’t like to or can’t do!

“I am very pleased with Rebecca’s technical ability, which is not easy to find in a VA. There are tasks she accomplishes that many people would have to pay a web developer or programmer to do. I also appreciate her willingness to jump on a project that has a tight deadline.” – Kerry O’Malley
“Rebecca is fantastic! She knows what to do and how to explain it so that it all makes sense. I look forward to working with her and am excited to move forward with her recommendations. I love that she is excited to work with me as well! Rebecca has taken the time to follow up on my progress. She not only cheers me on my successes but understands my busy schedule and encourages me when things aren’t flowing as I think they should. She goes the extra mile to provide assistance that insures the continued success with my social media endeavors. I recommend her highly.” – Teresa Morinaga

“Rebecca is a true pro when it comes to analyzing and developing a social media plan and strategy for your startup. She is very straightforward, very quick to connect, genuine and intelligent. Her advice and strategies were custom tailored to my business, and not just a “cookie cutter” template.

She has a brilliant marketing mind, and is very willing to share her knowledge. I definitely recommend her.” – Roberto Candelaria

“Rebecca is the go-to person for everything related to social media. She is knowledgeable, creative, asks all the right questions and knows many of the answers. Rebecca gave me some great ideas for my social media that I have implemented with very good results. She’s also very personable, patient and smart. I would highly recommend Rebecca to help bring your business to a new level!” – Pat Boland
