Social Bee Marketing hopes to create buzz for small businesses

MILLBURY — Tired of sticking fliers under car windshield wipers?

Sandwich boards not getting the results you want?

Social Bee Marketing believes it has the solution — it helps up-and-coming small businesses plug into social media such as Facebook, Instagram and Tik Tok.

Auburn natives and Millbury residents Nathan Ramos and Nick Hamelin began the business last year during the pandemic.

Ramos works part time for Social Bee (he holds down a full-time job for Aspen Technology in Bedford). He said his partner, Hamelin, picked up social media skills while working several part-time jobs.

“He learned how to edit pictures, video … I helped him push the idea forward,” said Ramos on starting the business. “I’m thinking, what better way to start?”

So far, Social Bee has used its own social network to help local businesses develop a better online presence.

For example, Ramos said they helped a friend who runs a landscaping company post content, including photos.

“Customers are more easily able to find out about services,” he said. “They need to be able to showcase their businesses.”

Another friend who’s a nanny is expanding into personal shopping, thanks to the services provided by Social Bee, including business card and logo design.
