Hi, I’m Bryn Bonino

I’m the woman behind the Bryn Elizabeth Co.

Are you frustrated with your past marketing efforts?  Are you hesitant to hire someone who will sell you the next big thing? Are you a cautious decision-maker and need to weigh all of your options before making a decision?

Well, me too!

I’ve trusted consultants in the past and didn’t get the promised results.  And I’ve invested too much in search advertising, only to realize later that my marketing and sales funnels were leaky. 

This is why I set up my current business model.  

The Foundational Planning Sessions allow you to decide if you like working with me. They also allow me to analyze different aspects of your digital presence so that the best decisions are made for your particular business.

I also have years of experience working in digital marketing and degrees and certifications to back me up.

My Background

I’ve spent years working for medium-sized organizations growing intrigue and getting the right eyes on the right programs.  This allowed me to fine-tune my skills to persuade without being pushy.  

I pride myself on innovative thinking and customized systems.  This is why I like working with small businesses! The innovative thinking they need to use to be competitive is what I constantly strive to build in my own work.  

I graduated with honors with a marketing degree.  But... that was pre-Google days. So to update my skills, I got professional certifications in Social Media Marketing, Content Strategy, SEO, and Search Advertising.  

My formal graduate education also taught me how to conduct ethnographic research to systematically understand a culture.  

I apply all this education and experience to my professional practice so I can understand the heart and soul of a business before I make recommendations.  I always make recommendations based on a holistic understanding, and not focusing on one possible tactic.

 

Working With Me

People come to me for a few reasons:

  • I tend to underpromise and over deliver.

  • I meet deadlines (and set expectations) like a boss.

  • I am detail-oriented and thorough in my reports.

  • I am friendly and empathetic.

People want to work with me when they want:

  • More people to find their business.

  • Help getting more traffic to their website.

  • More engagement with their blog, email, and social media.

  • More qualified leads from email, social media, and their website.

I get along best with people who:

  • Are passionate about and take pride in their work.

  • Don’t believe in overnight success stories and are constantly learning and evolving.

  • Believe in swaying opinions with gentle persuasion, not pushy “buy now” tactics.

  • Prefer customized experiences that go against “one-size-fits-all” products.

  • Creatively carved their own business niche and don’t fit into a standard industry mold.

Does any of this sound like you?
Then, I think we’ll get along just fine!

 

Did you also know…?

There’s more to me than someone who knows a lot about digital marketing.  Did you know that I’ve traveled to 16 countries? But I like slow travel, so once I find a place I like, I stay for a long time.  

The countries that I keep returning to are Mexico, Italy, and Brazil. I also fluently speak Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian.

Did you also know that I’m currently going through the process of becoming an Italian dual-citizen?   Once I can spend more time there, I have an audacious dream of making a substantial portfolio of fine art photos of traditional Italian festivals.

So, yeah, I’m also a photographer.  Whenever I need to let off some steam, or dip into my creative side, I go out with my camera. I don’t take photos, I make photos!  I also don’t strive for pretty photos. I aim to make interesting photos.
