Proud Latina, immigrant, family, community, 20 yrs in hospitality from South Beach to Bal Harbour, I love Miami Beach
In 2015 self-taught social media while riding the Miami Beach Trolley to work at night using a smartphone, mobile internet, and curiosity..
Maria was inspired to try something new and took initiative to create @MiamiBeachPages on Twitter as a hobby to proactively promote local Miami Beach community online for visitors and residents.. with the intention to make a positive contribution..
THE PROBLEM = OPPORTUNITY
During the years working in hotels and resorts helping visitors with local recommendations.. Maria would often give brochures, flyers, magazines, newspapers, business cards.. and overtime noticed the impact of single-use paper, expired printed promotional material and discarded trash on the floor, sidewalks, beach..
What to do about it?
Could there be a better way to market and connect an audience with the rise of technology adoption, smartphones and internet connectivity by reducing printed paper ads, inks and waste..?
WE THINK SO
So Maria set out to test a cost effective solution by going digital.. to launch an eco-friendly alternative and build an audience all started word-of-mouth and using social media to build a following of 5,000+
Going digital is portable, fast, cheap and easy way for anyone to connect and engage a community in the palm of the hand. Word-of-mouth marketing and referrals are powerful.
