I help retailers, designers, makers and small businesses turn their online presence and brand experience into awesomeness by providing consulting, coaching and training services in digital communication, branding, niche marketing and customer experience.
I wear many hats but they are interconnected. I'm a:
I have advised big and small businesses since 1995 on how to use the Web, how to do digital marketing, and how to sell online.
Lately, I educate, coach, create and put into action content marketing and social strategies for retailers, designers, makers and small businesses. My goal is to help them grow their business by making their online presence and their content more meaningful and awesome.
I started blogging in 2005. With At Home with Kim Vallée, I earned a reputation as one of the foremost lifestyle & entertaining experts in Canada. This led to contributions to the Food Network, HGTV, the Toronto Star, Canal-Vie and Montréal en Santé.
Because I care about the future of blogging, I also produced On the Web with Kim Vallee, a social media guide for bloggers and brands.
I spoke at several conferences about creating great content, how women use the Web, how to use social media to build/grow a business, how social media is changing e-commerce, and how to take your blog to the next level.
I am especially proud of the fact that I pioneered women lifestyle topics at PodCamp and WordCamp events in Montreal and in Toronto. I seek more speaking engagement opportunities.
I have a thing for small business. My parents were successful small business owners. They taught me at a young age the value of great customer service.
It was just a matter of time before I became a business owner. I did it in 1995 when I became a partner at Paradivision, a software and Web studio founded by my husband. I re-branded that business to suit my talents and passion.
