My name is Christine Gallagher and I’m an Online Marketing and Social Media Trainer and Coach. I teach small business owners how to conquer the overwhelm of online and social media marketing to increase business and maximize profits. My mission is to teach others how to gain more time, money and freedom by leveraging the power of the Internet.
It’s easier and more crucial than ever for solopreneurs and small business owners to communicate and converse with their potential clients and customers. People don’t want to be “sold to” anymore with pushy, in-your-face tactics. Today’s most effective marketing is about building relationships, really listening to what people want and communicating the value of what you have to offer.
If you are just starting a new online business or you have an existing business and need support figuring out how your bottom line can benefit from all these new media tools–blogs, social networks, bookmarking, micro-blogging, video, etc.—that’s precisely what I do. My number one goal is to remove the fears that surround marketing, a topic many people dislike or don’t understand, with simple strategies.
My approach is based on simple ideas: when you focus on providing value, leveraging technology, and building your reputation as an expert in your industry, you will craft a flexible business which gives you the lifestyle and success you deserve.
I earned a Bachelors degree in Communications and Mass Media from Temple University in 2000 and went on to earn a double Masters in Information Systems and Information Science from Drexel University in 2003. I have been blogging on various platforms since 2004 and a self-confessed “internet junkie” since I was a teenager.
I started my first business when I was 11—a neighborhood Babysitters Club—and learned the power of marketing when some strategic flyer placement led to a steady stream of weekend babysitting jobs until I left for college at 18.
Prior to the launch of my company, Full Pipeline Strategies, my career path was comprised of business, marketing and entrepreneurial endeavors including roles as an IT instructor, research analyst, media buyer, real estate investor and graphic designer.
As is the case with so many small business owners, I too struggled with effectively marketing my prior businesses. Traditional marketing methods, alone, were not working. I quickly realized that, in order to succeed, I had to learn how to gain consistent results by marketing online, the right way. It became clear that your marketing is just as important, if not more, than the mastery of your business.
Without a firm marketing foundation to support your business, that dream of yours will fail. As a result of my new understanding, I chose to launch a business whose sole purpose is to teach other entrepreneurs how to achieve success online in much less time.
I love teaching others the tools to enable them to take control of their lives. I have a passion for mentoring others in the art and science of cultivating lasting relationships through marketing and social media. I’m particularly effective with solopreneurs and small business owners who want to increase their customer or client base, and professionals who need to attract clients. After working with me, my clients clearly understand that the web provides an awesome opportunity to achieve their marketing goals.
My background is technology and communication. My passion is online marketing and entrepreneurship. Let me know how I can help you build an online business that gives you more peace of mind, freedom and joy. To contact us, please email email@example.com.
