Online reputation management, branding expert, and social media consultant Erin Jones’ mission is to connect brands with their ideal audiences and help them thrive online. She is the co-host of the Community Karma Podcast, along with local SEO expert and Ignitor Digital cofounder Carrie Hill. Since long before the days of the Internet, Ern has had a love for just about anything social. When a project manager position at an Internet marketing firm morphed into a developing social media position, Erin knew that she’d found her calling. (Yup, Erin has been in the social media game since before it was called social media. Anyone remember Web 2.0?) She further fine-tuned her passion for all that is social after accepting a position at Trackur as their Director of Community Relations. A job centered around reading, writing, and talking to people from all over the world? Perfect! Add to that a position with Trackur’s sister company, Reputation Refinery, Erin found the perfect mix of social media and client interaction.
Erin quickly discovered that she wanted to share her love for social media, and help those that don’t love the social side of the web quite as much as she does. Enter RepBright. Erin loves to connect brands with their ideal audiences and help them thrive online. An experienced speaker, as well as author, she is thrilled to be able to combine her skills to provide a comprehensive online branding solution for her clients. Collaborating with some of the greatest minds on the Internet has allowed Erin and RepBright to provide comprehensive online reputation management solutions to small and medium-sized businesses throughout North America, without breaking the bank.
Erin has worked with a variety of brands – from HGTV personalities and defense contractors to local businesses and nonprofits. Social media has given all of these brands an equal chance to share what they have to offer with the world, and Erin is passionate about helping them shine a light on those companies. She thrives on helping brands find their voice online so that they can focus on what they do best -run their businesses.
Erin’s love of communities, both online and off, met her love of all things sparkly when she was invited to join the board of directors for a local nonprofit providing formal gowns and accessories to local students, with the mission of “Creating memories, one dress at a time”. The Parker Secret Closet is one of her proudest professional achievements because it connects her professional life with her local hometown community.
After living in the mountains for the better part of a decade, Erin is back in the community she grew up in with her husband, two children, and two dogs. She loves Parker’s strong community and close access to the city.
