Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I am an early adopter of new media. I keep myself updated on what is going on in an everchanging technology and I understand firsthand how challenging and intimidating it can appear to people who have their business in mind, and don't necessarily have the time to sit in front of their computers to browse and learn how things "work". I experiment myself. I put myself in the shoes of others. I walk their mile, with them, and if they can't walk, I'll carry them or find a way so that we can fly instead. I believe in everyone having abilities even when they don't know they have them. I am inspirational, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. I am hardworking and extremely detail-oriented. I can spot the tiniest of those details in a wink. I am also unconventional: thinking out of the box is a key to my philosophy. It has taken me out of my comfort zones, so I know how to navigate the unknown, and make it a fun journey instead of a scary one. I am in my fifties. Having half of a century behind me gives me lots of perspective, experience and understanding. Having another half of a century in front of me gives me lots of humility to know that I still have lots to learn. This is a very exciting combination. It also allows me to be very professional in what I do. Once I am committed, I endeavor to reach the goals. I believe that you can eat an elephant. One mouthful at a time. Although I have never tried it. Yet. I mean, a real elephant. I often speak in metaphors and use big words in English, but it makes me funny, not pompous. It's because English is not my native language. Being able to speak as many languages as I speak also makes me stand out, and I am proud to understand even that which is not spoken. What I like most about my job is that it is never dull, never see the same problem twice, never one solution for all. I like that I have to think about it, to try and find a new path each time. What I like is that it is a very personal encounter each time: each customer is unique, with their own passions, and their own approaches. I love people, I love stories, and my job is also to help those passions to have a representation.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Laurence. She is incredibly patient and attentive. I am not entirely comfortable working online, but my goal is to learn and become proficient. She explains clearly what I need to do to get my blog up and running and then is there to support me when I begin the process. She sends information between sessions, she arrives promptly and takes the time to understand what I wish to accomplish. I feel I am learning the skills I desire and I most definitely could not have learned how to do this on my own. I would definitely recommend her services.

Laurence is the perfect teacher. She is very patient even with a luddite like me. She is creative and knowledgeable. We spent about 3 hours per session and the time flew by. Laurence really uses the time well to give you just the right amount of information. I did not feel overwhelmed. I highly reccomend Laurence.

I have been working with Laurence Furic for several years, mostly with regard to co-marketing and promoting a non-profit institution. She is the consummate professional; she knows her stuff! Laurence understands social media marketing, the various tools, and how to use them effectively in sharing information, promoting a product, an event or expressing an idea. Her familiarity with CMS and web content is an added plus. I recommend Laurence and Angel Wings Web very highly.

FAQs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    This is the fastest changing field I believe for the time being. Most of my clients are overwhelmed by the amount of available information that they see about social media and digital marketing. I research constantly and explore everything I stumble upon, so that I can learn what are the new developments, and how they can be used by my clients. Because I go through the learning stages myself, I can see firsthand what is easy and what is more complicate, and it is a great asset for me to understand the steps and be able to then teach them.

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    I recently serviced a small business whose owner was particularly technophobic: she was very reluctant to set up a facebook page for many reasons including fear of the complexity, fear of the breach of privacy for her patrons and generally fear of using her computer and breaking everything. After some basic coaching and waiting for her to be ready to throw herself in the waters, we set up her business page in less than an hour of work. She soon got the required numbers of "likes" (previously called "fans") to use her business page as her profile, and she is now getting more and more comfortable updating on a regular basis all by herself. I expect her to become a "pro" before we can even finish singing a song! This is what makes me happy: to see my clients become proficient and use the tools that will make their business more profitable.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Be prepared to have some homework. I will first ask you to email me answers to a prelimary series of questions I have for you. Also be prepared to sit at your computer and follow my guidance: I won't do things for you, but with you.
