So­cial me­dia strate­gist Sam is head­ing for New Zealand

Wexford People - - NEWS -

IRE­LAND’S Tweet­ing God­dess and south Wex­ford res­i­dent Sa­man­tha Kelly has carved out a global rep­u­ta­tion as a so­cial me­dia strate­gist, and next month will see the Ir­ish en­trepreneur head­line New Zealand’s 2017 So­cial Me­dia Con­fer­ence in Auck­land.

The lead­ing Twitter strate­gist, speaker and trainer, who owns and op­er­ates Tweet­ing God­dess, con­trib­utes to a dozen or more world­wide con­fer­ences ev­ery year. This is on top of her day job, de­liv­er­ing so­cial me­dia strate­gies for busi­nesses to har­ness the com­mer­cial power of so­cial mar­ket­ing and the on­line com­mu­nity.

The Auck­land event in Septem­ber will see Sa­man­tha Kelly share with her Kiwi au­di­ence new in­sights and tools de­signed to drive busi­ness growth and ex­tend on­line in­flu­ence.

New Zealan­ders, like the Ir­ish, love us­ing so­cial me­dia.

Both na­tion­al­i­ties thrive on com­mu­nity and in­for­ma­tion shar­ing and have a nat­u­ral abil­ity for net­work­ing and tra­di­tional word-of-mouth type mar­ket­ing tech­niques”, the Wex­ford-based busi­ness­woman says.

‘I will be spread­ing #Twit­ter­magic in New Zealand as ap­par­ently only 2.72 per cent use Twitter at present, yet Twitter is ex­tremely pow­er­ful at build­ing re­la­tion­ships which leads to con­ver­sions,’ she said.

If you are un­able to see Sam in New Zealand you can join via livestream.

Sa­man­tha went from be­ing a carer for her hear­ing-im­paired daugh­ter to run­ning a suc­cess­ful so­cial me­dia busi­ness and Women’s Net­work in just a few years.

She remembers see­ing a smart look­ing busi­ness woman at the air­port and dreamed of one-day board­ing planes for busi­ness meet­ings and con­fer­ences.

Closer to home, the Tweet­ing God­dess has just been an­nounced as an Am­bas­sador for De­sign Wizard, an on­line graphic de­sign tool that takes the time and ef­fort out of cre­at­ing vis­ual con­tent. They of­fer over 15,000 tem­plates and 1.2 mil­lion im­ages that can be in­stantly tai­lored to suit your needs.

De­sign Wizard are an Ir­ish startup and ac­cord­ing to Sa­man­tha, ‘Most SMES and mar­keters need im­ages that stand out and that are sim­ple to cre­ate. As I have a strong busi­ness and so­cial me­dia mar­ket­ing fol­low­ing, I’m de­lighted to be able to help De­sign Wizard spread the word’.
