I help life-enhancing businesses to build their buzz online and turn followers into paying customers. I do this by showing them, step-by-step, how to authentically grow an online following through social media and turn those followers into paying clients.
In addition, my company Heart Centered Social, offers done-for-you services to small business owners who want their social media and online marketing taken off their hands.
Quick story on how I got started:
My passion for marketing started years ago at a large marketing firm in the Seattle area. I started out selling traditional advertising and new media including yellow page ads, direct mail, search engine marketing, online directory placements, and websites.
I loved the world of marketing and was so inspired and intrigued by all of the small business owners I worked with and their business models. It was fun finding solutions on how to help them grow.
But I started to notice a trend after a while. The company didn’t care much about the clients and if their solutions served them, they were just interested in the numbers and how much we were selling. I soon caught on and at the same time the new social shift was happing. Left and right businesses were canceling their yellow page ads. It seemed like no one REALLY cared if they were making an impact and I knew, I just KNEW, I had a bigger calling.
In my spare time, I started studying this new social shift like crazy. I hired an online marketing mentor and spent all of my weeknights and weekends studying,
Facebooking, blogging, creating videos and much more. I was so intrigued.
What I was learning and implementing is what some call, Inbound Marketing or what I call Modern Marketing. It was brilliant, effective, authentic and most of all fun!
I believe that EVERY single business owner needs to master this new way of marketing to really profit and make an impact. You see modern marketing is about providing relevant and engaging content to attract your audience. It’s about building a long term relationship through building a tribe via email and social media.
I personally built up an amazing tribe, started generating leads and creating extra income with affiliate marketing. The more I started to learn though, the more I stopped believing in what I was selling at my job. My productivity hit the bottom and I made myself miserable because I couldn’t sell a product and service that I didn’t fully believe in. I knew I HAD to get out fast.
“Faith is tested when things get hard, when we are afraid, and when our perfectly laid plans aren’t so perfect. True faith is when you have every single reason in the world to have NO faith, especially in business.”
I took the big leap and launched my company in 2009. I was called to help businesses to understand this new way of marketing authentically and how to grow a tribe of people that love what you have to offer.
This journey has been incredible and I am so grateful for the hundreds of clients that my team I have been able to impact. Never let your mind limit your dreams and never settle if you’re unhappy! Life is too short.
