Dubie's bio

"Dubie is a free spirited individual with a wonderful, creative mind and a unique approach to life. I've had the pleasure of working with her closely for almost three years and in this time I have gotten to know an inspiring, sharp witted person, and also someone who is able to handle delicate issues with great sensibility. Dubie is quick, efficient and highly resourceful. She has something that I've always admired in people: a heart to dream and the courage to make her dreams come true. I hope our paths will cross again in the future."

- Paulo Coelho (Author, 150 million books in over 150 countries)

Summary

My background is in blogging and web development, but in 2006 I started investing more of my time in growing social media reach and influence. I spent time on each social network learning how it works, but in the end opted for Google+ as I found it most difficult “to hack”. My personal profile on Google+ now has more than 420 Million views. I believe that this is due to the fact that besides posting beautiful photos, which is something everyone likes to see, I also manage very big and active communities there.

My specialty is in setting up new brands online and helping them grow exponentially by building their online communities with the goal of making them self-sustaining. I do this by focusing on their target audience and reaching out to key influencers in their niche. Depending on the project potential and resources available, I aim to base my social strategy on content marketing and engagement initiatives.

Social Media is all about team work, so I usually coordinate remote teams of people who are distributed around the world. I have long-term relationships with social influencers in different niches and in different areas of social media marketing. With their help I can spread the word about any project in record time and increase exposure for any promotional initiative.

Having had the privilege to grow up all over the world and live in many different countries and continents, I've been able to develop a huge global network of real friends and associates, which can be an asset to any globally oriented project. I am fluent in English, Spanish, Serbo-Croatian, and can hold a conversation in Russian, Greek and Arabic.
