Colleen Pence, Social Butterfly

Colleen Pence, Social Butterfly

After gaining 16 years of experience in traditional marketing and public relations while working for a symphony, an architecture firm and an international software company, Colleen Pence launched Social Butterfly, her social media mentoring firm.

While mentoring businesses–both large and small–through the sometimes confusing, often overwhelming world of social media, Colleen teaches companies the benefits and nuances of using social media. Colleen works closely with clients to tailor strategic social media plans that fit the needs of their specific business.

Street cred

In addition to her traditional marketing/PR background, Colleen began writing her personal blog four years ago and pulled in an average audience of 5,000 unique visitors each month. You’ll find her weekly blog, Work from Home Mama on the San Antonio Express-News web site, MySA.com. She’s written for several popular blogs including: Savvy Source, San Antonio,  The Parent Bloggers Network (product reviews), The Soccer Mom Vote (political and social commentary, now defunct) and MusingMama (unique perspectives on parenting). Colleen created and still writes for and manages Start Here. Grow Far. (for Baby Potential, an apparel company) as well as The Bloom Blog for Bloom Maternity. Colleen also created and edited content for RPGDevNet, the company blog for the iSeries division of BluePhoenix Solutions.

She’s been active on Twitter for two years and has helped many clients across various industries learn how to understand and harness the power of Twitter, Facebook and blogging to successfully introduce them to, and help them engage with, customers and prospects.

As a co-organizer of TweetCampSA (along with my social media compadres, Jennifer Navarrete and Andi Narvaez), Colleen plans to learn, share and grow with other San Antonio and south Texas social media enthusiasts on Saturday, July 18 (Registrations are still being accepted. Reserve your space today!)
