Amanda Luton is the founder and owner of The Magnolia Marketing Group. With a background in Social Media Marketing, Retail Management and Merchandising, she brings almost 20 years of marketing experience to the table. Amanda has worked for Von Maur, Anthropologie, AmericasMart Atlanta, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, and TalentStream, and owned her own children's boutique clothing line, Goat & Lulu, that she designed, created, and marketed. Amanda has her BA in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing from the University of Nebraska. She is married with three small children and two beagles, and lives in Metro Atlanta. Amanda began The Magnolia Marketing Group in 2016 after identifying a need for Social Media and Marketing outsourcing for small businesses. Being a small business owner herself, and married to a small business owner, she is aware of the demands on their schedules, and how marketing often-times falls by the wayside. The Magnolia Marketing Group allows for the small business owner to concentrate on the day-to day of their business and their own priorities, and works with the owner in a collaborative manner, to grow the business with creative and modern marketing ideas.
“try not to get discouraged, learn as much as you can… immerse yourself in the industry that you are in as much as you can. Read books listen to podcasts, get involved, start networking even if it’s just going out to lunch or meeting your co-workers for happy hour or something. Talk to people, get involved in industry associations, just learn as much about the industry as you possibly can before you get started, before you get into it. There’s going to be things that you can learn along the way but the more you know ahead of time and the more prepared you can be I think the better off you will be for success in your industry… Just do it scared. Everybody’s afraid, everybody scared, everybody’s doubting themselves but you do it anyway”…[Listen for More]
