Meet L.A. Social Karma
Hi, I am Jen! Founder and President of LA Social Karma and coined as a social media guru by some. A bit of history about our company and how it came to be…
It was 2010 and I was extremely unhappy with my job. I was so tired of chasing impossible sales quotas and hearing sales lines like “by hook or by crook” all while trying to sell a product that I didn’t believe in. I felt miserable every day and at night I would ask the universe for something new. I often laugh at this when I look back now, be careful what you ask for as you might just get it! After being so unsettled and hoping for a new chapter, the universe answered and I was let go from my job. At first, I was devastated and admittedly a bit terrified! But, things have a funny way of working out to bring us what we truly need and just a few days after being fired an old client called to catch up. They needed a hand with their business’s Facebook and Yelp pages plus some email marketing blasts designed and sent and asked if I could assist. My response was “I don’t know anything about Facebook!” His reply was, “Well you’re young, you’ll learn…” and with that small push, L.A. Social Karma was created. LASK has grown from a small project consisting of only me and my laptop to a team of 5 with over 20 clients.
Located in SoCal with a strong base in Los Angeles and the Westside, we work with notable clients such as Stella Rosa Wines, Upper West, Jonathan Club, Venice Chamber of Commerce, and all the Truxton’s locations just to mention a few.
The name “Karma” came from my belief that you get what you give in this life. It represents the desire I had to run my business on my terms, not based on some inflated sales number but based on how we can help business owners tell their stories through social media. I feel that you truly get what you give in your community.
L.A. Social Karma is a digital marketing one-stop shop! We provide services such as social media content and copywriting, brand ambassadorship on all social media platforms, Facebook/Instagram Ad management, reputation management on all review platforms, and email marketing services. We create custom content that makes sense for your business, and helps you get your word to your community and beyond!
Call or email me for a consultation, I look forward to hearing from you!
