about

Hi! My name is Kolby and I am the founder of Simply Modern Marketing. 3 words that best describe me are outgoing, adventurous and driven.  I am a Marketing and Communications specialist with over 10 years of experience. Over the years I have watched marketing transition from traditional methods to the world of social media. Gone are the days of bench bus ads, and in comes pins and hashtags, tweets and likes, but what does this all mean for you and your business?

I’ve been the marketing manager at everything from restaurants, ski tour/outdoor adventure businesses, oil and gas data software companies to midstream oil and gas companies. I’ve done marketing for businesses small and large but through it all the one thing that always remained the same was my love of marketing.

I have a background in professional writing and have always been very active in social media both personally and professionally. Over the past few years I’ve been approached by a number of businesses looking for help with their social media accounts. Helping businesses grow online through social media is something I quickly fell in love with.

Whether you need help growing your Instagram account or setting up a business Facebook page for the first time I’m here to help. I love teaching people what social media can do for their business and why it’s so critical in reaching your clients.

I created Simply Modern Marketing quite simply because I want to make your Marketing simple for you.

I’m Rachel; I have a passion for new experiences, growth, creativity, and connection as well as 6am spin classes. I have spent the last few years developing my marketing and communication skills and have realized my love of all things social media. When I get talking about the power of a good Instagram theme or the strategy behind a brand I could go on for hours. I constantly have people asking me for tips and advice for growing and developing social media platforms and blogs; I have been able to share my experience and passion with other people looking for the same outcome.

I have a Communications Degree and a Marketing Certificate from the University of Calgary. I have grown my skills, experience, and Instagram followers into a successful personal blog and the social media coordinator for Branded magazine.

I joined Simply Modern Marketing to spread the social media love to businesses and brands that are looking to grow their online presence and reach their audience.
