I am an experienced Marketing Manager in Social Media
Over the last five years I’ve spent time in both USA and UK working on social media marketing activities. In 2007/2008, I created a global first by implementing a social network to alleviate traffic congestion into a business park.
I spent a short time with Zappos.com (Las Vegas), the business that in eight years went from zero to $1 billion sales using social media. I created the Twitter tool Tweetabits in January 2009, designed for franchise businesses that want live leads for their business within a 2.5 mile radius – it works by delivering conversations that include relevant words or phrases.
As a leader in my field I’ve been interviewed on TV and radio and work with local and international Chambers of Commerce. I enjoy spending time with authors or their businesses, sharing experiences of my work in this field.
