Meet Laurie Hurley, The Social Networking Navigator
What does it take for a business to build their customer base and increase sales?
These days, it takes a combination of social media platforms that help you to engage, educate, and get to know your target audience. There are so many fantastic opportunities to reach people online. If you’re dedicated to growth and visibility, you need to create a social media strategy that works for you.
I’d like to help you put together the strategy that is a perfect fit for you and your business.
Why Social Media Coaching?
I discovered, quite by accident really, that my ability to embrace overwhelm, sort through all the confusion, frustration, and occasional anxiety of being online comes very naturally to me. Helping small business owners and entrepreneurs – especially baby boomers, and newbie social media users – has become my passion. It’s so exciting and gratifying to see a client becoming happier and more successful when he or she starts to figure out the social media game. What a difference it makes when multi-tasking entrepreneurs utilize their time online effectively and productively!
Business Experience + Entrepreneurial Experience
The savvy business owner has learned that social media is not a fad or a phenomena -they know it’s essential for any organization that wants to stay competitive in today’s marketplace. My previous life in corporate America for twenty years, plus the thirteen years I’ve spent as a serial entrepreneur have taught me about what it takes to be a powerful, viable force in the marketplace. I’ve been drawn to social media and to helping others master it because it offers unprecedented new ways to stand out and be heard – and be profitable.
Online and Offline Marketing
It’s not just my business acumen and marketing background that make me the Social Networking Navigator who can help you find your best approach to online marketing. I have a passion for creating true connections both on the web and in the “real world.” I’m a dynamic in-person networker, a sought-after speaker, who is passionate about helping people uncover and conquer the limiting beliefs that keep them from promoting themselves and building their business. The need to balance online marketing with face-to-face networking is essential and it’s always my mission to help my community find the perfect mix.
As important as it is to balance our online and offline marketing… Well it is even more important to balance work and fun. When I am not immersed in social media, I enjoy the gorgeous Southern California weather on my daily runs in the mountains. My husband, two daughters, two dogs, and three cats keep me busy the rest of the time.
Strike a Healthy Balance In Life
Family, friends, and activities that make your heart sing are always going to be key to your overall success. The beauty of finessing your social media marketing strategy so you devote no more than 35-45 minutes once or twice a day, working online marketing your business will free up your time to do those things that are important to you.
How Effective Is Your Social Media Marketing Strategy?
Do you have a strategy that is organized and manageable? Or, do you get sucked in to the social media vacuum? I’d love to hear from you.. and show you how to increase your ROI so you can begin to see results quickly, without spending hours glued to your computer, only to surface feeling exhausted and unproductive.
Take a look at the services I offer – something for every level of social media user and let’s connect!
“Laurie was instrumental in helping me to understand the importance of a presence on Social Media. We brainstormed ideas for my videos, my Facebook business page and more. I learned how to do many things myself, but also hired Laurie to complete the more technical things that I was not comfortable with and just simply did not have the patience for. She reacted quickly and completed what I wanted done promptly. I also love being a part of her Private Group on Facebook because Laurie shares lots of tips and tricks with all of her clients.She uses a lot of video to explain things which is great for me, because I am a visual learner. She will be involved with my business as I delve deeper into the Social Media world.”
