About the speaker:  

Deborah Smith is a social media marketing consultant and coach to small and

medium sized businesses. Deborah got her start in social media 10 years ago when she launched her ecommerce business which operates a network of websites serving the Nanny Industry.  She began employing email groups, chat rooms and online message boards as marketing and networking tools well before the term “Social Media” was ever conceived.  When the new tools like Blogs, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn emerged, Deborah was an early adopter because she had already witnessed the power social media could offer a small business.

In 2007, she launched her first blog,, which now welcomes over

3000+ visitors per month.  She is also the owner of a Social Network just for nannies called which has over 900 members and is the most successful networking platform in the Nanny industry.   Her Twitter account @jerseybites has over 3000 followers while the Jersey Bites Facebook page has over 800 fans.  On LinkedIn, her connections are just shy of 4000 people worldwide.
