Bridget Willard Bio

Who is Bridget?

Secretary by Trade, Teacher by Degree, Marketer by Instinct

I started my career with office work, earned a teaching degree, but returned to the office where I carved out a career in social media and marketing and ended up at a WordPress Development Shop.

I am the Marketing Manager for WordImpress, co-host of WPblab, and co-organizer of Women Who WP meetup.

On this site, I write about relationship marketing on social media and, of course, WordPress.

Why did I start using the term, "guru?"

The label "guru" is overused.

As a term of endearment, however, friends have referred to me as a guru, office goddess, or other some such nonsense.

Professional Info:

I earned a BA in Liberal Studies, got my Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential, and after one year my path took another route. That combination of skills has presented opportunities to tutor others and help get accounts started. Go to LinkedIn for more.

Social Media and Content Marketing

My experience is mostly based in business to business where relationship marketing is even more important.

Teaching is the new marketing. People skills are even more important to stand out from the crowd of scheduled tweets.

As of December 1, 2015, I accepted a position at WordImpress as the Marketing Manager.
