What are people saying about Local Social?

I have so much to learn about marketing my new business online that I hardly know where to start. Rima is very professional and knowledgeable about social media and how to use it to promote your business. She went into a lot of detail with me and was willing to spend extra time explaining it. She created a very professional Facebook Page for Nancy Gunning Travel and helped me to understand the importance of social media. The Market Analysis Report was very educational and taught me about what I need to do to bring my business to the top of the search engines. I will definitely continue to use Local Social as my business and advertising budget grow.

Rima Runtzel

I get excited about networking in our local communities – connecting those I know to each other in ways that benefit us all. I have been immersed in marketing and public relations for over 8 years and am fired up to be using my knowledge to help others!

Over the years, I have enjoyed community involvement, planning and coordinating many community events, including the Patriot Day Remembrance Ceremonies and Oakhurst Community Christmas Tree Lighting. I am a past president for the Boys & Girls Club of Oakhurst, an emeritus member of the Friends of the Oakhurst Branch Library (FOBL) board, and have been an ambassador for the Oakhurst Area Chamber of Commerce. I was the Honorary Mayor of Oakhurst for 2011/12, as well as one of Central California’s “40 Under 40″ in 2011, the Oakhurst Area Chamber of Commerce Woman of the Year for 2011 and Volunteer of the Year in 2009.

Currently I serve as chairman for the Yosemite High School Alternative Education Site Council, Yosemite Unified School District Site Council as a parent adviser, and on the committee for the Elegant Auction to benefit the Oakhurst Community Park, and am active as a founding member of the Mountain Area Merchants Association.

When I’m not creating digital ad campaigns or optimizing social media pages, I can be found listening to live music around the fire pit with a glass of wine, playing taxi driver for two teenagers, or cuddling on the couch with our two dogs and three cats.

If you’re dying to know more, here are three things that I bet you don’t know about me …

  • I have a twin sister (fraternal) who lives in Virginia and is my complete opposite.
  • I’ve lived in Oakhurst since the early 80’s, graduating from Wasuma and Yosemite High Schools.
  • My first job was at McDonald’s Oakhurst and SierraLand Theme Park recruited me from the McD’s Drive-Thru – bonus points if you remember SierraLand!

You can begin working with me right this second by requesting a social media marketing consultation here.
