Social Media is a game-changer for businesses and if you aren’t leveraging that power, you may get left behind. People now use social media to get recommendations for what to buy and where to shop. When you participate on social media, you stay top-of-mind with your customers.
Plus you can now use social advertising – Facebook Ads, Instagram Ads, Twitter Ads and more – to precisely reach your perfect customer without spending an arm and a leg.
I am passionate about helping small businesses understand and leverage the power of social media to actually grow their business.
I co-authored the book Facebook Marketing All-in-One for Dummies and I was the Community Manager for Social Media Examiner, one of the largest social media sites, for over two years.
I’m also the co-founder of Social Media Manager School, an online training course that has helped over 1400 students learn how to start their own business as a social media manager or consultant. And I’ve taught 100s of students how to use Facebook and Instagram Ads in my Facebook Advertising Secrets Course.
I speak at many events all over the world and on webinars. Find out more about booking me as a social media speaker.

If you are confused about how you can build and grow your business online, hire me. I’ve worked with a wide variety of businesses all over the world: local businesses, restaurants, speakers, coaches, non-profits, HVAC contractors, franchise owners, and more. I love helping companies develop their strategies.
More about how I got started….
I’ve been using Social Media and Internet Marketing successfully to promote my own businesses for years. I have also been doing Improvisational Comedy for 10 years. As I was learning social media, I realized there were no entertaining tutorials – they were all boring and dry. So I decided to blend the two things that I love doing into one business. I used one of my favorite characters and created Grandma Mary -Social Media Edutainer.
As I grew my own social media presence and blog, I was asked to co-author Facebook Marketing All-in-One for Dummies. I had never dreamed that starting a blog would lead to a book deal and an international speaking career.
My passion is to help entrepreneurs and small businesses grow and use the internet to their fullest advantage. I do that through speaking, training, and my online courses.
I look forward to working with you!
