If you happen to be a blogger, a Creative entrepreneur, or a small business, consider Small Talk Social your new secret weapon. Small Talk is here to help you elevate your digital presence and generate a loyal following by focusing on the VISUAL aspects of your social strategy.
I'M STEPHANIE GILBERT + I'M ADDICTED TO SOCIAL MEDIA.
(THEY SAY THE FIRST STEP IS ADMITTING THAT YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, RIGHT?)
Honestly though, social media isn't a problem. The real problem is not knowing how to use it strategically + INTENTIONALLY to market your brand or business on the proper platform.
I am OBSESSED with helping creative brands + bloggers discover ways to build their businesses on social media, through amazing content + community building. I'm here to help you avoid making those common social media mistakes so many businesses make.
And that's why I created SMALL TALK SOCIAL.
If I had to sum up my life's work in a single word it would be:
IT ALL STARTED WHEN I WAS A KID. WHEN EVERYONE ELSE WAS PLAYING OUTSIDE, I CHOSE TO SPEND MY SUMMERS REARRANGING THE FURNITURE IN MY PARENT'S LIVING ROOM. FROM THERE I HAVE ENJOYED CAREERS IN VISUAL MERCHANDISING, WEDDING / EVENT PLANNING + PROP STYLING.
Before moving back to the South from the West Coast in late 2015, I had the pleasure of producing visual content + managing social media for Urban Outfitters. I learned so much about creating/curating visual media + being responsible for the voice of a major brand. AND, I realized I was able to blend so many of the things I loved together: Social Media, Photography + Styling, Writing, + Fashion. My experience with UO was one of the best I have ever had with a large retailer + is actually what prompted me to start my own biz.
Now I spend my days creating content as well as helping other entrepreneurs + creative businesses to develop thoughtful + intentional visual marketing strategies.
So, right here on this little blog you will find lots of "how-tos", tips, + valuable information to help you take a DIY approach to elevating your brand on social media. I share all of my best advice for creating content + representing your business in the most visually appealing way on a variety of platforms.
