My name is Linda O Connell and I have worked in the Non-Profit sector for the last 15 years as a communications specialist. I recently (2018) qualified with a MSc in Digital Marketing Strategy from the Cork Institute of Technology. I have extensive experience with social media platforms, website development, SEO, Adwords, graphic design and advertising both traditional and online.
I am particularly interested in working with local artists, artisan food producers, holistic therapists all with a view to bringing their products and services as large an audience as possible through judicial use of various social media channels.
The reason that I work in this particular part of the market is that it chimes with my own personal beliefs, interests and outlook in life.
I am concerned with ethical online service provision. Sustainable, environmentally friendly, equitable trading is important to me. Bringing erstwhile hidden talent to the fore is another motivator for me.
While I don’t work for nothing, obviously money is not the main driver for me when choosing who to work with or not; I have to be capable of total belief and commitment in the worth of the product or service promoted so there is a far more personal commitment to the client or product than might be with other companies. That is what motivates me!
