About Me

Screen Shot 2014-06-02 at 3.23.37 PM  My name is Jackie and I’ve always been social. Now I’m looking to take my innate social skills, my knack for connecting people and my passion for marketing to help businesses and individuals with social selling, social recruiting and social engagement.

Educate. Influence. Engage. Repeat.

When I joined Aptela – a leading provider of business-class Voice over IP (VoIP) solutions for the SMB market – back in 2006, I took our online marketing and social to an entirely new level. With a shoestring marketing budget and a requirement to build the Aptela brand and drive monthly recurring revenue (MRR) for the business, I immediately turned to online marketing and social media. Through a combination of SEO, PPC, content marketing and marketing automation, I quickly built a high quality pipeline for Aptela’s inside sales team. This engine allowed the company to drive up revenues from $3M to $8M in just 2.5 years and set the company up for its eventual acquisition by Vocalocity (now Vonage Business). I then moved back to the enterprise B2B world as the VP of Marketing for Dimension Data Americas, a $1.5B IT Services and Solutions Provider. While there, I helped the organization learn how to put the power of social selling, social recruiting and social engagement to work. I’m now ready to help your business. Whether you’re looking to become a social selling organization – to listen, educate and engage in a new way; step up your social recruiting to locate critical employees and/or shorten time to hire; or simply improve engagement within your organization, I can help.

When I’m not helping businesses with their social challenges, I’m busy helping tweens and teens understand the importance of their personal brand, and trying to provide guidance to parents about how to stay on top of their kids’ social presence.
