Christy Anderson Putnal is the Owner & President of 850 Local Social.

Christy grew up in Wakulla County and has lived in the Florida panhandle the majority of her life. Her family tree runs deep in the panhandle area, dating back to the 1800’s. She and her husband (Steve) currently live in Sopchoppy. They have three sons & attend Sopchoppy Southern Baptist Church. 

Christy has worked in the IT space since 2010 in various positions such as International IT software development account management, IT support, client technical support, key account management, and more. After she began freelancing with a marketing company, she soon discovered a serious need for social media management for small to medium sized businesses at reasonable rates, so in true Christy fashion, she decided to solve that problem by creating 850 Local Social.

When she’s not working, Christy enjoys spending time on the water fishing, traveling to different Florida beaches (Destin, FL is her favorite), hunting, discovering new local small businesses, supporting local youth sports, and spending quality time with her family. She also enjoys DIY projects, public speaking, and is always up for learning a new skill.

"Growing up, my dad owned a small construction company where he worked on his days off from the Tallahassee Fire Department. In addition to those two jobs, he also was a local beekeeper who produced famous Tupelo honey. 


I have seen how hard small business owners work; the 14-18 hour days, the worry, the time away from family, the financial strain. And because of my upbringing, seeing my dad (and mom) work so hard just to survive, I have a passion for helping small, local businesses!" - Christy

What is a Social Media Manager

A  social media manager is responsible for representing your brand online, utilizing a variety of social media platforms to ensure that your company speaks to its customers in a unified voice. 

Can I Manage my own Social Media

Of course! But managing social media efficiently is time consuming, and there aren’t enough hours in the day as is! Let 850 Local Social take some of the stress away by managing your social media accounts so you can focus on your customers!

Why do I need Social Media for my Business

What's the first thing you do when you’re looking to make a purchase? Online RESEARCH! 

When you find a business you’re interested in, you become an internet sleuth! You look at & dissect their social media pages! You read their social media comments from previous customers; were the customers satisfied? What do the social media reviews say? Does the business respond to comments? How quickly do they respond? What are their business hours, and phone number? You look at their posts and pictures. How recently have they posted? Updated social media pages lets you know the company is still in business. 

But, in short…..

Social media has taken over! It has trumped outdated, traditional marketing methods such as print ads, and is now considered the go to when customers are researching their next purchase.

Your social media presence allows consumers to reach out to you immediately, while also allowing your business to interact with & respond to customers quickly which is an absolute game changer in today's economy! 

Recent statistics show response times matter! In fact, response times can make or break a sale.

  • 82% of consumers expect a response within 10 minutes

  • 46% of consumers expect companies to respond to them within 4 hours

  • 90% view an instant response as crucial when they need customer service

Did you know that the faster you reply to a potential customer, the likelihood of them choosing you goes up exponentially? Lead conversion rates dramatically improve the faster you respond. Cue social media direct messages!
