I’m developing a web based application to help businesses better engage and communicate effectively with Instagram users. The software is called RAMsocial. I’m very excited to be working on this and hope to launch beta version to select companies in early 2018.
I’ve been immersed in the world of Social Media for the past 10 years working with hundreds of companies launching campaigns in many different industries such as: Top 50 home builders, restaurants, realtors, photographers, hotels, entrepreneurs, hair stylists, exterminators, and many vacation rental companies across the US.
I’ve had a career as the Social Media Director for a large company, freelanced for smaller and mid-sized companies; and launched a new social marketing division with a marketing agency.
