Meet Terri

Celebrating 16 years as a digital marketing consultant

Thousands of hours spent in front of my computer, and I have enjoyed every minute!

It is so nice to meet you!  Wow…I can’t believe it has been 16 years since I walked away from my cubicle and into entrepreneurship.  The yearning to fully utilize my skills in marketing and technology was way too strong.  As a typical entrepreneurial type, I took a risk and jumped.  At first, it was scary, but, wow, it’s been worth every minute! I’ve met some incredible people, worked on some amazing projects, and “going to work” every day has simply been a blast! 

Where my work has been featured

I vividly remember the very first day in my new home office. 

Hanging out your shingle and hoping for clients is not for the faint of heart.  Fortunately, shortly after establishing my business in 2006, social media began to offer an inexpensive and easy way to reach millions of potential clients.  One of the first social tools I used was a blog.  NPR ran a story about blogging, so I thought I would try it. Facebook followed, then Twitter, and finally, my business began to grow. As I was growing my business, I realized I had discovered something quite valuable.  Sixteen years later, I have had the pleasure of helping hundreds of business owners leverage the power of digital marketing.

Growing a few online brands takes skills.

On top of operating Holley Creative on a daily basis, I own and operate Revolution Gray, digital platform and a micro-influencer in the women 50+ and healthy aging spaces. Revolution Gray began as a single blog post and has grown to become a global multi-channel network of thousands of online fans. The website has been featured on national media outlets such as USA Today, The Huffington Post, AARP After 50, and Daily Finance. 

I LOVE giving back. 

I find it very fulfilling to assist others in better understanding social technologies and how to use them for the greater good. Among my contributions are:

    • Writing for Women Grow Business, recognized by Forbes Magazine as one of the best marketing and social media blogs written by women.
    • Serving as a subject matter expert at local and national conferences to engage in a robust conversation about social media and interactive marketing.
    • Speaking at local events to discuss cyber civility and the use of social media among teens.

 

I have an evident track record of success.

The success of Holley Creative and Revolution Gray can be attributed to the power of digital marketing. I use the same principles for my businesses as I do for my clients. Absolutely no loans. Absolutely no grants. Only great marketing sense and the ability to leverage technology.

I work with an outstanding team of collaborative partners.

My network of collaborative partners allows me to serve clients in a variety of capacities.

  • Fun Fact

    My father, a veteran of World War II and lieutenant colonel in the United States Air Force, was a meteorologist who worked at the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for many years. He contributed to the development of the Saffir-Simpson scale (which measures the strength of hurricanes) and participated in the naming of hurricanes in the Atlantic and Eastern North Pacific. In the naming conventions for the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific hurricanes, "Teresa" (my real first name) and "Terry" are both included. Unfortunately, he passed away in 1999 and I never got the chance to ask him which names he put forward. Every sixth year, both names occur. We'll see what happens in 2027.🌀

I'd love to work with you!
