Hello, I'm Shannyn

Established Problogger & Social Media Strategist.  Obsessed with aesthetics & good storytelling.

We all want to be heard, right?  

We all want our brand to get noticed - whether you're a local boutique who wants to get more foot traffic in the door on Saturdays; or an e-commerce site who isn’t sure what channels would help them get the word out, our goal is to get people to listen, care and engage. I love working with passionate business owners, authors, and merchants who wants to build communities of customers in the digital age of marketing & selling.

I’ve been lucky to work onsite as a Social Media Manager for national brands like RAM Racing, Walgreens and Duane Reade, as well as digital properties like CouponCactus.com, authors and online personalities.  Telling your brand's story is what I do best!

 

How I Got Started...

I began blogging at FrugalBeautiful.com and quickly developed into an influential website for the niche, generating buzz and profitable partnerships with national brands.

I have worked with brands such as Kohl’s, Disney, CVS, Athleta and Canon for ambassadorships and influencer campaigns.  My writing has also been featured in the Chicago RedEye, Wall Street Journal, POPSugar and The Times of Northwest Indiana.

With over 8,000 followers on Twitter and 4,000 fans on Facebook- my blog was ground zero for me to practice what I preach, and build a social media following from the ground up.  

My favorite platform is currently Instagram, but I love the business potential for Pinterest, and love how it performs for clients when done well.  I love to travel, and while I’m not much of a foodie- I love going to new places and trying the local fare.  You’ll find me with a beverage in one hand, and a camera in the other documenting the journey!
