Social Media Strategist, Community Manager, and Blogger. I believe in the power of social media to build real-life relationships. I've worked with small businesses, non-profits, and freelancers to help them best use social media for their business and mission.
Doniree is extremely knowledgeable about social/professional media and willing to teach and share with others. Loved working with her and would highly recommend her skill set in this area.
Doniree was such a pleasure to work with on BiSC. She worked with me to put together a custom sponsorship package that engaged BiSC attendees in a way that matched the goals that we were hoping to achieve. It was awesome.
I love how she approached sponsorships from the perspective of: "How can we work together in a way that makes sense for both of us?" instead of just asking for a check or another transaction.
Since the BiSC sponsorship, we've developed relationships with bloggers in a number of different campaigns. I'd definitely work with her again.
For someone who had no clue what I needed or how to get it done - Doniree walked me through what she as doing and why and answered every single question I had. She never once seemed frustrated with me or my lack of understanding. She continuest o answer questions and supply great support for my two websites. Her turnaround time is fantastic and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone!
Doniree is and has been at the heart of my internet social world, and for good reasons. Her magnetic personality, enthusiasm, and knowledgeability creates not just a conversation in our corners of the web, but a celebration of participating in social media. A lot of social media experts are as capable as Doniree, but working with her guarantees that I will enjoy my time working on the web, and you can't put a price on that.
We hired Doni to take our social media presence to the next level. She has done this, and more, almost singlehandedly. Doni has more than tripled our following on Twitter and Facebook and has helped to establish our content stream as a trusted and appealing source of information. She did this by taking the time to understand our organization, asking the right questions, keeping her ear to the ground, and carefully crafting the messages she shares with our audience. As community manager she has helped us build relationships with an extremely broad audience by listening, connecting, responding, and following up. I love that she's quick to suggest improvements and brainstorm ideas, and that she stays up-to-date on the latest social media tools and technology. In short, Doni has become an essential member of our team!
Doniree joined Lijit as a contractor and we soon hired her on full-time in 2010 because of her upbeat energy and strong grasp of the online and blogging industry. Doniree works wonderfully with clients and everyone who interacted and worked with her loved her kindness and willingness to help.
Doniree is also a blogging friend/colleague of mine and is a great blogger, writer and strategist. She has an idea and knows how to not only run with it, but execute it. You want to work on projects and/or hire her. I know that there are many more projects in store for her and I.
In my role as Communications Manager for the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority, I had an exceptional experience working with NomadicFoodie.com and Doniree Walker.
The RSCVA invited NomadicFoodie.com to attend the 2010 Great Reno Balloon Race to experience this signature Reno event. In addition to the Balloon Race, Doniree and her staff experienced many diverse aspects of the destination, including many food and wine offerings.
From fine dining to dive bars and beyond, Doniree did a fantastic job writing about her experience in the destination. Because of NomadicFoodie.com's reach and exposure, it was an ideal relationship for me to foster on behalf of Reno, Sparks and North Lake Tahoe. Recognizing that many NomadicFoodie.com readers are interested in food and travel my relationship with Doniree was ideal.
NomadicFoodie.com assisted the RSCVA in getting its products in front of a new, diverse audience of potential visitors. If I have the opportunity to partner with NomadicFoodie.com in the future, I certainly will.
I highly recommend Doniree and NomadicFoodie.com to other convention and visitors bureaus, travel agencies and destiantions.
Thanks Doni for a job well done!
I have reached out to Doniree on behalf of several of my clients for blogger outreach programs and for every one of them, she has been a delight to work with. My favorite instance in working with Doniree was when we invited her to the National Cherry Festival for a blogger immersion event. Her boundless enthusiasm and passion for all things travel and food made her a perfect candidate for the trip. Her vast knowledge of the social media space and insatiable desire to "pick the brains" of everyone around her resulted in a fantastic trip, and more importantly, an excellent working relationship. I would (and do) recommend her for any of our clients that are food/travel/lifestyle related because I know she brings an incredible zest for life to any project she is a part of.
Doniree helped me create a game plan for my photoblog, brainstorming with me how I can create unique features for the blog to attract more traffic. She is so creative, enthusiastic and helpful!
Doniree has been a huge help in getting me started with my personal blog and helping me grow my social media presence. She's extremely encouraging and full of advice on how to set up a blog, generate meaningful content, and promote it to an audience. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in strengthening their social media and online strategies. It has been a pleasure getting to know her!
