I'm Samantha! After a decade of helping local hospitality & leisure brands transform their social media marketing, I'm turning my attention towards helping brands worldwide become irresistible to visitors & guests everywhere.
What does countless hours on social media lead to? When you’re paying attention and listening, a lot of valuable insight. I have heard and seen it all. I’ve witnessed what excites and attracts people, and I’ve observed what bores and repels people. I sit quietly and pay attention to each generation as it changes and evolves. The last decade of marketing for me has been a study in what people really want! And helping my clients align their marketing to their customers' desires.
You know what you also see a lot of when you’re on social media 24/7? A lot of the same old message and a lot of shameless promotion. Each business starts to look like the last. Remove the name and logo at the top of the post, and you’d be hard pressed to name the brand that shared it.
This led me to asking why? Why did every business have the same thing to say? What was that about? The answer was perfectly clear: if your experience is just like your competitors, you’re going to sound a lot like your competitors. And as an avid consumer of travel & leisure experiences, I knew deep down this was true.
When was the last time an experience really WOWed me? When was the last time I felt a deeper connection with a brand?
When was the last time I left feeling like I had just experienced something truly meaningful?
So I set out to learn everything I could about the experience economy, storytelling, and how I could help brands turn this somewhat ambiguous marketing jargon into strategies that even the smallest business can implement.
When I'm not helping my clients, I'm out exploring! By age 15 I had already traveled cross-country, from NJ to California, checking off many of the most amazing sites the US has to offer. And now I have dedicated my life to seeing the rest of the world, one destination at a time. My thirst for adventure gets stronger by the minute. I travel to explore other cultures through culinary pursuits, nature & agriculture, music & theater, and whatever other surprises come my way.
I look forward to guiding you on this journey of creating a brand and experience that fulfills you and your customers on all levels!
