I began my first own business in 1994, in a small store in a village in the Maxmo archipelago. I started my second business CELMA in 2010, and my third NorAsp Ab in 2013 alongside my husband.
My biggest passion is to help other businesses gain bigger exposure. Nowadays it is very difficult to be visible through the big load of informationthat plagues us consumers. One way to gain more exposure as a company is through social media, by finding your group there and to find your dialogue with your costumer. But it`s not easy. You also have to focus on finding your costumers needs and address it. Don’t just sell it, but rather communicate it.
In order to reach out to you businesses out there I organise lectures and workshops in marketing and social media. I keep my lectures at a level which suits you and I adapt them to your needs. Even associations and projects hire me for this purpose. I’ll also do missions based on your needs – with everything from planning to execution.
I have studied a lot on the subject of marketing, communication and leadership, and I have extensive work experience behind me, which supports my knowledge and my work relating to your needs.
One example of my work experience is selling to both consumers and companies internationally with both visual and editorial experience relating to a technical magazine.I also have years of experience from my days in the health care branch and the business world, where I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing a little bit of everything.
I offer graphic design, with everything from logo planning, choice of colour and other visual communication (adverts, brochures, posters, magazine layout etc.). All material that I create goes either to print or into digital material that you can publicise on your website and other social channels.
