Abbie McGilvery, Social Media Strategist/OWNER
Hi! I'm Abbie. I believe it's my mission in life to help individuals and organizations get focused on their marketing goals, plan for growth, and figure out how to best use their authentic voice to match their products or services with their audiences’ needs and desires. I've been called a "Marketing Maven" and a "Social Media Guru", but I prefer to think of myself as a "social media scrapbooker" with a focus on helping business owners, artists, speakers, authors, and organizations build brand visibility and tell their stories on social media channels.
I'm a tree-hugging, art-loving Mom from Portland, Maine with a background in Psychology and Criminology and professional experience in both nonprofit and corporate sectors. I have an intense passion for organization, storytelling, communications, and helping others feel empowered to reach their goals through the use of social media.
Since launching my social media business in 2014, I've had the pleasure of speaking to hundreds of listening ears about the power of social media, the fear we face around marketing and telling our stories, and how to use the tools of the social media trade (such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and Pinterest).
I love working with small groups and one-on-one as an adviser, guide, and mentor for those who need guidance in the (often overwhelming!) social media world. I enjoy sharing my voice through speaking engagements, bringing together groups of brave people, and watching other creative people SHINE!
I am also proud to serve on the Board of Directors for three amazing organizations in Portland, Maine. Please be in touch if you'd like more information about any of these organizations.
