Deborah Smith: Online Marketer, Social Media Consultant
I have been using Social Media since 1998. That’s right, well before there was Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, there were message boards, chat rooms and email groups. Back in 1998, I launched my first business which owned and operated several websites serving the Nanny Industry. I used the ancient ancestors of today’s Social Media platforms to network with industry influencers and to market my websites, including NannyClassifieds.com and 4EverythingNanny.com. In 2007, I launched a social network just for nannies, called NannyIsland.com. NI has over 1000 members and is a great example of how businesses can own and operate their own social network to complement their business.
In 2007, I launched what was to become a very successful cooking and restaurant blog called JerseyBites.com. Jersey Bites now welcomes approximately 17,000 unique users per month and has a Google Page Rank of 5. I began using Twitter and Facebook to promote Jersey Bites in 2008, and quickly realized the huge potential for businesses on today’s Social Media Sites. Today, Twitter.com/jerseybites has over 7000 followers and close to 4000 “Likes” on Facebook. According to Kred.com, the source for measuring a brand’s influence over their online community, JerseyBites ranks in the top 1%. I am huge believer in the power of Social Media and can show anyone how to use these tools properly and with purpose.

Experienced Public Speaker & Social Media Motivator
Results-driven online marketing starts with knowledge, and I have spoken to groups large and small throughout the tri-state area about the intricacies of social media today. From sessions for starters that leave participants with a social media “tool kit” to advanced tactics that empower those already in the know, my workshops can be tailored to any knowledge level.
I also work with businesses and organizations throughout the region to help them develop or fine-tune their own social media strategy through special workshops or one-on-one consulting.
