We were waist-deep in social media before people knew it existed
Long before Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube and Instagram, there were message boards, chat rooms and email groups. In 1998, Foxtrot Media founder, Deborah Smith, used these ancestors of social media to launch her first business, which owned and operated several websites serving the nanny industry.
In 2007, Deborah launched JerseyBites.com, a popular collaborative blog that features restaurant reviews, recipe sharing, and food-related events throughout New Jersey. She soon began using Twitter and Facebook to build a following for Jersey Bites, later introducing Instagram and Pinterest. Today, Jersey Bites has over 50,000 combined followers and fans. Jersey Bites' success recently led to a cookbook deal with Quirkbooks. The Jersey Shore Cookbook was released in April, 2016 and after 2 short months made it to Publishers Weekly top 20 Hardcover, Nonfiction bestsellers in the country.
Today, Deborah is a sought-after social media consultant, strategist, marketer, trainer, coach and public speaker. She uses lessons learned from her own personal experience, as well as the latest social media educational training, to help businesses and organizations harness the power of social media, from the very basics to the most advanced social strategies.
