Like many owners of marketing companies, I started as a reporter, writer, and marketer for a variety of small to bigger agencies and businesses – a girl’s gotta pay the bills and bolster her resume, right? 

From freelance to 9-5 – I’ve experimented with different styles of working, a myriad of staff sizes, and a bunch of marketplaces.

And yes – like many business owners, I’ve worked in a marketing agency. That’s exactly why I know the difference between a small business hiring an expensive agency to do their marketing work – and the comfort and affordability that comes from hiring a boutique professional that really cares about your success.

What’s Really Behind a Great Social Media Post?

There’s a stark difference between a run of the mill Facebook post or Tweet – and one that really stands out.
