Guitarist Jamie Glaser Sets Out to Change the Way Social Media Management Has Been Done with JG Social Media Solutions

Social Media Management that makes a difference!

Jamie Glaser is best known as the guitarist for multi-Grammy award winners Jean Luc Ponty, Bryan Adams, Chick Corea, and many more. His guitar is what you hear on TV shows like Seinfeld, Married with Children, and Saved by The Bell. As a composer, more than 80 compositions are presently used on Network TV as well as the Discovery Network on cable. Jamie’s guitar can be heard on Disney, Spielberg, and major motion pictures worldwide.

Jamie set out to change the way social media management has been done.

JG social media solutions in business since 2013 is Jamie’s company run by 2 people. Retail giant Don Zickefoose and Jamie and specialize in getting clients the best engagement, traffic, likes, and sales. JG social media solutions work in all niches.

“When I was a student at Berklee College of Music I looked around at 623 other musicians who were on a line to get their degree and decided all these people have the same knowledge I had, they all had the same experience so I decided to do things that they didn’t do, that they didn’t want to do.

“I began studying marketing and business. Musicians wanted to play, wanted to be famous, wanted to have adulation, and had very little interest in ‘business’. I found it fun and interesting and knew that I could propel my own career in ways the others couldn’t or wouldn’t do.”

In the years that followed Jamie became marketing director in Los Angeles for entertainment companies that booked everything from décor to orchestras, named acts, bands, for corporate parties and also weddings and other events. These companies’ profits were in the multi-millions and Jamie learned the art of the sale always realizing that the way to success was to help others with their challenges, and desires.

In 2013 Jamie got a call from a musician’s wife who was distraught. She cried “My husband spent all his money on Facebook ads. There is no return and now I have to take a job to feed our family and pay the mortgage.” She continued “I see how busy your social media pages are and that you are making sales, have loyal customers, and are always making a profit. Can you please help us, Jamie?”

Jamie went to work to create a page for them that was not a billboard (like traditional advertising) to create an environment that was social and to finesse ads that cut their advertising budget by more than 50 percent, with a return of 200 percent.

“The success was clearly a sign that I needed to do this for others,” said Jamie Glaser.

“I went online to find the social media management companies that were at the top of Google Search and hired 3 of these companies to see what they could do for me. They all had big fancy web pages, they all had amazing software to give me a detailed analysis of my performance on social media and they all were HORRIBLE at being social, getting engagement, traffic, likes, and sales.

“I spent between 1000 and 2000 dollars (the going rate for social media management per month) to test these companies and they all failed, and the price was completely way too much for my peers in the music business and for small business owners in general. I decided to offer affordable service that could not be matched by anyone at any price. For the price of a cup of coffee at Starbucks per day, clients receive personalized, professional marketing on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.”

JG social media solutions were soon doing the management for social media for an artist with 2 billion views on YouTube, followed by intense work for Jean Luc Ponty, hall of Famer Jon Anderson, Prog musician greats like Andrew Colyer and Robert Berry. JG social media solutions grew fast and did the work for the no 1 skin spa in New York, a hearing aid company in California, a bar in Manhattan, and represented chart-toppers, smooth jazz artists, like the Jazz Holdouts and Eric Byak.

“The secret is simple, social media needs to be social, people want to know the businesses and feel important. Social media is a place where people do not buy unless they know the company, the musician, the whoever. Social media takes expertise, business know-how and lots of quality time and we provide this all.

“Small businesses and large businesses should not be spending their time responding to customers all day, creating posts, resizing pictures, making sales videos or trying to do the intense work it takes to make a successful ad and advertising campaign JG social media solutions does it all for every client.”

Jamie mentions “The work was so time-consuming as the client base expanded and I was at a breaking point. I had to find someone who was special, who was great at social media, and who really had expertise in marketing and business.

“I put up a post on Facebook saying I needed someone that I could trust and rely on who could work 7 days a week for my company. There were hundreds of responses to my post and I chose over 60 people to check out. Don Zickefoose was someone I had responded to on Facebook and enjoyed the way his pages looked and his incredible relationships with the people who responded to him. I came to know Don while I was guitarist with the Anderson Ponty Band and the group page we had on Facebook.

“Choosing Don Zickefoose was the best thing that I ever did in my life. Don is not only a business and retail genius but he also fulfilled a great desire of mine to have a best friend. We are so close and I believe our friendship is one of the reasons why our success is off the hook.”

Don Zickefoose grew up in the Boston area but has resided in Upstate South Carolina since 1993. Always looking to be creative, he learned custom photographic darkroom techniques in the United States Air Force, followed by 8 years in the M.I.T. Graphic Arts Department. Raising 3 children led to a 20-year career change to manufacturing in leadership roles. A part-time job led to a retail management career path. having managed 3 different areas of a 100 million dollar per year gross sales store. He uses his talents to drive people to the client’s sales links and encourages them to interact with the business pages.

JG social media solutions are about ¼ the price of the competitors and are on a mission to give the best service anywhere to people in any niche. Social Media Management that makes a difference.

In 2021 we are planning to do more work for schools, colleges, and universities as well as small and large businesses.

AndersonPonty Band Guitar Virtuoso Jamie Glaser’s Inspiring Book “Hear The Silence” Available

Los Angeles – “Hear The Silence” is about healing, strength, courage, love of oneself and others. In 1994 guitarist, performer, music composer and producer Jamie Glaser was in the Northridge Earthquake in California, when the shaking stopped nothing was the same. From 1978 to 1994 he toured the world with Grammy award winning musical acts, lived the good life in Los Angeles, and suddenly found himself unable to get out of bed for 6 months. Jamie lost all his worldly possessions in the days following the earthquake, his self esteem, his quality work and eventually found himself homeless and without hope. “Hear The Silence” tells the story of life lessons and experiences that brought him back from the “dead” to the wonderful life he has today and inspires others to celebrate with him.

Jamie Glaser is best known as the guitarist for Grammy award winning musical acts, Jean-Luc Ponty, Chick Corea, Bryan Adams, Gloria Trevi, Manhattan Transfer and more. His guitar can be heard on over 170 albums as well as on the biggest sitcoms of all time, Seinfeld and Married With Children. Jamie compositions can be heard weekly on CBS sports, ABC, Animal Planet, History channel, Discovery, and ESPN. His solo albums have been successful worldwide. Jamie is presently the guitarist for Jon Anderson and Jean Luc Ponty. The AndersonPonty Band recently completed a US tour on the heels of their recent CD/DVD release “Better Late Than Never”.

Says Jamie, “I wrote ‘Hear The Silence’ because I was supposed to help others. I am a person who is already public, and not afraid to share my heart and personal stories. I want to help inspire people to find joy, and help them celebrate life. It’s my hope that this work of mine can change lives and make life special again for some who are struggling.”

“For Years Jamie Glaser has been a great communicator through music. Now he gives us life lessons told through a very eventful life.” – Lenny White, Grammy award drummer, composer, producer

Here’s what’s been said about Jamie Glaser’s “Hear The Silence”:

“Hear The Silence is a fabulous informative book and should be required reading for everyone. Take this journey with Jamie through the wonder of being a gifted musician and living the rockstar lifestyle but also living with another all too common challenge.”

“We all know or are in our own way affected in varying degrees. Highly recommended!”

“Jamie’s book Hear The Silence was written in the spirit of positive, loving energy that is Jamie Glaser! Jamie is a very, talented hard working musician. More importantly is the love he feels and shows for fellow human beings and for the animals he cares for with great tenderness. Jamie shares his story of his fight with mental illness, and he emerges a clear winner in every sense of the word. He gives his take on how to improve your life, not as proselytizing, but as loving advice from one who lived through some tough times. Jamie’s book is a quick, fun read and everyone can take something from it. Thanks Jamie!”

“This book will, if you are open minded and willing to really examine yourself, show you ways to deal with life’s downs and ups. Life really is unfair, but using gifts you may not be aware you possess, you can make your way through to your happiness. Teaching music is not the only gift Mr. Glaser has to share with us. Thank you for sharing your tough times and hard won good outcomes with the readers of this wonderful book.”

“Jamie’s heartfelt and entertaining story about his amazing struggle with his illness and the long road and eventual success in getting better had me in tears, at times, and in frank laughter at others.” – Sara Trainer , Vice president/ Producer Indart Music and Sound productions, CFO/ A&R Executive Producer LMS Records and Latin Music Specialists

In closing Jamie has this to impart, “I used to think being famous was the most important thing, Then I thought being rich was the most important. When I lost it all and found the lessons I write about in Hear The Silence, I realized that reaching out and inspiring , helping and loving others is what is most important.”
