Get Noticed. Get Results.
MEET LAURIE HURLEY
My love of all things digital started in 2008 when I quickly realized I needed to learn social media to grow my business. At the time, I owned a very popular educational resources company and was expanding fast. Traditional print advertising was getting expensive and I wanted to master online marketing.
In 2010 I opened my first social media company, helping business owners understand the impact of having a digital marketing presence. I regularly conducted workshops, Lunch N Learns and taught companies and their marketing staff how to navigate social media.
In 2016, I took a detour from the entrepreneurial life and accepted a position as Executive Vice President – Digital Marketing for a global marketing firm. I interfaced with dozens of companies, taught a 12-week digital marketing series four times a year and hired and trained an entire team of digital marketers. While it was fun, I missed being my own boss and we amicably parted ways.
In 2017, Social Meets Digital, LLC was born. I put my experience to use, having worked with over 500 small to medium size businesses find their voice online, helping them sort through the confusion and overwhelm that paralyzes so many business owners and start ups.
I consider myself a natural teacher, excellent explainer of all things related to digital marketing and thoroughly enjoy focusing on social media management for my clients. I get you noticed and get results!
Working from home in Southern California, at the base of the Santa Monica Mountains is perfect for me, as my husband and I are empty-nesters. My two daughters are pursuing careers in microbiology and automotive sales; pursuing their dreams.
Hiking, biking, walking our dogs and enjoying the beautiful weather is a large part of my life.
