I am a social media evangelist, consultant and Speaker who is passionate about helping small businesses understand and leverage the power of social media to actually grow their business. I am the co-author of the book Facebook Marketing All-in-One for Dummies (along with Amy Porterfield and Phyllis Khare) and was the Community Manager for Social Media Examiner for over two years.
I use my Improv Comedy skills to blog as Grandma Mary, Social Media Edutainer, a slightly cranky character who makes learning social media fun. I speak and train people from a variety of industries such as local businesses, restaurants, speakers, coaches, non-profits, HVAC contractors, franchise owners, and more.
I regularly blog for Social Media Examiner, and have been a guest blogger on Copyblogger, DIYThemes, Useful Social Media, and I regularly write E-books for Hubspot. I have been named one of the 25 Women Who Rock Social Media in 2012 by Top Rank Blog, 100 People You Should Subscribe to on Facebook by Simply Zesty and 10 Women That Rock Our Social Media World! on Social Media Today.
