Digital Marketing & Brand Strategy

As a Social Media Manager and Content Creator, I have curated, developed and created digital marketing and social media content for clients in wellness, home renovations, not-for-profit and tourism.

Yasmine is a great collaborator. She worked with The Clark Hulings Fund as the Online Community Manager and brought an incredible “ear” for dialogue in our online platforms. She engaged our constituents in organic conversations and produced engaging content to connect with our Visual Artists and Small Business Owners, to bolster our B-to-B relationships and to market an Online Conference. Yasmine is focused, funny, innovative, a flexible team player, and willing to offer a perspective you hadn’t thought of to help solve a problem. I so enjoyed working with her!

Yasmine is a pleasure to work with and a skilled content creator. Her ability to take a brief and run with it results in engaging content and imagery that performs well in social media channels. Her deliverables are received on time, in an organized manner, and always exceed expectations. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again.

The content specific to these assets garnered 200,000+ impressions,145,000+ reach and 2,600+ engagement touchpoints across social media, and 1200+ blog page views.

Podcast Setups

Podcasts are a fantastic forum and I love to help and coach clients in putting the foundational elements in place for their podcast to succeed. I have consulted on podcast setups for lifestyle and diplomatic clients. I also host and produce my own podcast, City Girl Talks.

In 2020, Yasmine and I had the chance to work together setting up a podcast for the Swiss Representations in Canada. She not only guided us through the entire process, but also took care of the setup and technical questions. We were very happy with the consultation and the podcast has been running for a year now.
