Engaging Visual Content

“It’s common knowledge among psychologists, visual marketers, and behavioral specialists that around 93% of communication is nonverbal, hence the cliché, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”

But in a world in which brand communications are driven more than ever by visual content, new and powerful modes of visual communication are emerging all the time. In fact, 1 minute of video is worth 1.8 million words, according to Forrester Research. This makes it easy to see why audiences aren’t as willing to engage with text-driven content.” (Social Media Examiner-Visual Story Telling)

We take your brand identity, goals, target audience and combine it with research regarding the culture and market and turn everything into visual content that impacts your target audience emotionally and right where they live, in their heart.

Daniel Kahneman won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 in Economic Sciences by proving that there is emotion in every decision we make. Only 10% of decisions are made with logic leaving 90% of decisions made with emotion.

Leading in Research

Research

I have been studying Online Digital Marketing for over ten years and continue to stay current with the algorithm and trend changes in social media and right now Facebook and Instagram have gone through some of the largest changes in the history of their creation. My superpower is that I research the “unspoken” and “unwritten” rules of the way the algorithm’s process and the analytics, upcoming trends, and statistics so that I can create marketing strategies that produce results based upon facts. I can explain to you why a strategy will work with facts and statistics. I can analyze your strengths and weaknesses based upon the new systems in place in social media and the upcoming trends, your future goals, your target audience, and your culture and strategize a campaign that would give you the best results. Additionally, I can implement that strategy including accurately telling your story using video, capturing your target audience with results.

My Disruptive Advantage:

“The Learning Code Institute”

Brain with neurons flashing

I recently was given the privilege and opportunity to attend the “Cracking the Learning Code” training course for marketing and branding. This training is not available to the public. For 30 years, scientists have been studying how the brain responds to information and what stimulates and causes a response. This information was then applied to marketing and this was the training I received. Upon implementation of this remarkable study, I have seen great success, at least seven times the responses than before, and responses have been immediate. https://thelearningcode.com

Facebook And Instagram Ad Campaigns

The “Genesis” Methodology

Red Storm Rising

I have an exclusive proprietary methodology called the “Genesis” System that dramatically increases traffic and engagement in Facebook and Instagram Ad Campaigns compared to existing methodologies over systems that fail to use our video technology strategies. I analyzed over one hundred of the best Facebook Ad Campaign methodologies in the world and spent thousands of hours researching and deconstructing the current systems to make the “Genesis” system a leader in its field. For more information about the “Genesis” methodology: https://drive.google.com/file/d/14uaiO93ngf3-9LQJPtKH0942ap0etRuW/view?usp=sharing

My Story

Queen of Social Media

Hi, My name is Ann.

My clients call me the “Queen of Social Media.”

I accidentally fell into Marketing as a career. With a background in Corporate Human Resources and a love for fashion, having a past career in Cosmetology, in 2006, I began a fashion-based business. I soon learned that I needed online marketing to be successful as social media was becoming more dominant so I set out to learn everything there was to know about marketing online, social media, digital marketing, and running a business digitally. I am a perfectionist and can be obsessive so I threw myself into my studies completely and I studied from all of the best experts for literally years until I was overflowing with information.

As I studied, I would then apply what I was learning to my business and experiment. And the cycle began, study, apply, learn, study, apply, learn. Soon other Entrepreneur Groups took notice of the changes that were taking place in my business and asked me to consult for their groups in the area of marketing. Then other fashion designers would approach me one on one and ask that I would mentor and coach them and a business was born.

I fell in love with social media and branding, content creation, strategies, video design, etc. As I gained more expertise, the business grew.

I still study continually today, having a decade of research under my belt now. Social media is always changing and growing, it is a living entity and if you do not stay on top of the trends, algorithms, culture, market, etc. it will pass you by.

I do not believe in following my opinions but I base my opinions on the facts that I gain from all of the research that I do so that I know that what I am doing has a history of success, therefore, I can expect success as well.

I love helping businesses succeed and fulfill their dreams!

The rest is history as they say!
