Bianca J Smith TapDancingSpidersQuick summary: I can’t dance and I’m terrified of spiders.

Are you now confused? I’m sure you came here looking for videos of dancing spiders (I know you did, I see the Google Analytics reports).

Instead you’ve discovered me. A freelance digital marketer playing in as many different facets of digital marketing and communications possible. Yep, I’m a dreaded generalist.

Oh, you want my credentials to know why you should hire me? I help small and large organizations with social media, branding, reporting and analysis, direct marketing and event management both in Australia and the US. I work with varying clients building their profile through marketing and communications. Also, I am a Hootsuite Ambassador for North America, a semi-professional photographer, and have two degrees: a bachelors majoring in marketing and a graduate degree in public relations. I’m working on a third: a Masters in Communications.

Have a look around. I hope you’ll like what you see. Want to read something a tad more detailed? Check out my folio for some of my work.

Give me a call and let’s see how we can make marketing magic happen.

Are you still confused about the name, TapDancingSpiders? I’m also a Harry Potter fan. TapDancingSpiders is a line from the fourth movie, but read the books to discover the brilliance of JK Rowling.

Affiliate Links on TapDancingSpiders

I’ve started using Amazon affiliate links for all my book reviews. Yes, if you choose to buy the book, I get a tiny amount of money. If you don’t, I don’t. I’m not aiming to make a living off the site, maybe just subsidize the hosting costs. I always put a link in reviews to make it easier if you choose to buy. I chose to link to Amazon because they’re global. I’ll never change my views because I may be paid and if you choose to buy e-books, from your corner bookstore or borrow from the library – I don’t care. I just hope that my reviews give you more ideas of what to read. Publishers give me many books via NetGalley. I’m terrible at remembering to tag them with the FTC disclaimer. Generally speaking if the book hasn’t been released or is very new, then it was a gift. My reviews are honest and while you’ll never see a totally slamming review they do exist. I’m just more discrete with negative feedback and it only goes to the publisher.

That’s the same for my posts featuring Hootsuite. I’m a volunteer brand ambassador because they make the best social media management platform available. The perks and swag are just bonuses. Plus, you’re more important than my relationship with anyone giving me stuff. I have done and will continue to only share content that’s relevant to you.

    Is 3.33 a good score or a really good score or just plain ordinary?I have enjoyd rading this, I am entering through Linked or whatever it is.

      Glad you’re enjoying it.Top score is a four and it’s averaged over all the subjects, so it does represent a lot of hard work. I think my score is marginally higher at the moment.

  2. So brilliant to be invited in!
    Will start by going through your books.
    I am wading through “The authenticity hoax: How we get lost finding ourselves” by Andrew Potter, M & S. Very well written. Philosophy at its best, because it’s readable and in places great fun.

    I was wondering if you accept guest post for your blog. If you do, I would like to submit a few. I’m a recent college graduate, with an English major, looking to build out my portfolio. I can write on a wide variety of topics and am sure you would be happy with the quality. Please email me back if you are interested. Thank you for your time.
