I’m Brooke. I’m the owner of Social Tenacity, a wife, and the mother of four children who are my pride and joy. I’m so glad you stopped by my website.
Maybe you’re wondering “Who is Brooke Elder and how can she help me grow my business?” I’m glad you asked. Let me tell you a little about how and why I created Social Tenacity.
You see, all my life I’ve loved teaching. As a little girl, it was my dream to teach and I made that dream come true when I became an elementary school teacher. It was the perfect job…except for one little thing…
Working as a teacher took me away from my own family during the day. This was especially difficult when my children were little. I realized I couldn’t be the mom I wanted to be and teach full time. So after my second child was born, I left public education.
So now might be a good time to mention that I’m pretty introverted. I loved the freedom and earning potential of direct sales, but face-to-face selling wasn’t my idea of a good time. Neither was the idea of picking up the phone to call people on my 100 list. The thought of it made my stomach hurt.
I needed to find another way to get the word out about my business.
So I started learning all I could about how to market myself online. I learned about social media, blogging, and SEO–all the things. For some reason, online marketing came naturally to me. And my confidence started to grow as well.
Meanwhile, I never lost my passion for teaching. I took what I learned and created an online university for the direct sales company I was part of. In just a few months, our university grew to over 10,000 subscribers! The combination of merging my two passions, marketing and teaching, made my heart soar!
Social Tenacity was born when I took the leap into full-time consulting bloggers, business owners, and network marketers. I discovered that so many people were stuck in a rut with the same marketing strategies they learned in the 90s! So I taught them to think “outside the box” and to–well, frankly, to get with the times! The results?
Clients had blogs that went from 200 page views a month to more than 100,000 views in just a few short months!
Some clients even had their blogs go viral to the point where it crashed their servers!
Other clients increase their email lists, sales, recruits, and paychecks.
As a teacher, I don’t want to ever stop learning. As a business owner, I don’t want to ever stop bringing value. I’m constantly researching marketing strategies, automation and productivity tools. I’ve brought in coaches to share their expertise. And I’ve created an “arrows out” culture of giving more than receiving. This is the “secret sauce” that Social Tenacity clients learn and it’s an absolute thrill to see their new-found successes!
