Digital Marketing Trainer For You or Your Group

Are you trying to reach your potential customers in a way that will make them to action, tell their friends and keep coming back for more?

Do you struggle with how to tell your business story using words/photos/video?

Do you need a plan?  A person to create your content for you?

Are you looking for a speaker/trainer who has over 9 years of experience personally working with every social media channel while training groups and individuals on how best to use them? I can show you how to use each social channel for business including: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. I also train on how to use WordPress, how to set up a blog and create a content calendar.

Hawaii Island businesses can also tap into my social influence on my “365 Things to Do In Kona” Facebook page with almost 19,000 fans and my website.

We also have three YouTube channels about Big Island businesses, 365 Adventures and real estate tips on “Big Island Real Estate Minute”.

I do the work that I suggest to other business owners!

I can help you narrow down which social media channel would work best for your talents and business and train you and your marketing team on the techniques for having an indelible social media presence. I can coach you through implementing your own social marketing campaign or you can hire me to help you, too!

Personable, High Integrity, Creative

“At Hawaii Life we had an inside joke about “social NOTworking” – until Julie Ziemelis came along. Julie is not just high energy, smart, capable and innovative, she is also connected… as in networked. And she helped us make our social WORK. Julie understands the media, PR and technology needs of small businesses in Hawaii, and she executes her ideas with an enthusiasm rarely seen in a place where “Polynesian Paralysis” is more the norm. Julie’s email signature says it all: Catalyst. Initiator. Idea Generator. She lives on the bleeding edge, is an Ambassador for INMAN and an advocate for her clients’ taking their business to the next level. Mahalo, Julie, you have made a difference for Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers and agents – may our business association only be outlived by our friendship!”

Using Social Media to Job Search Workshop

The methods and tools that are available to market job seekers is expanding and changing due to the social media revolution. Julie’s technical knowledge and expertise in this evolving field is invaluable in helping job seekers and employment counselors understand the potential of utilizing these tools. Julie is a very thorough, detailed and enthusiastic trainer and I would strongly encourage individuals who want a better understanding of this media to contact Julie to learn more.

Julie provided an informational session for staff and job seekers on this important topic.

I’ve been calling Julie a Social Media Superstar since I first met her. She did a fantastic job at all four Social Media Boot Camps and our evaluation forms show that people found her nothing less than ‘excellent.’

I highly recommend Julie as a speaker for any interest marketing related topic and she is sure to motivate, educate and entertain you and your guests.
