Big Changes are Happening at Angelique & Friends!

Big changes are happening at Angelique & Friends!

For the past five years, I’ve helped lots of people learn how to promote their products and services online. I’ve also written and edited a lot of content for websites, ebooks and manuals. A.F.MarCom stood for “Angelique & Friends Marketing Communications.”

My motto was, “If it’s related to words and how they’re arranged, I handle it.”

But times have changed, and so must I. People don’t need help learning how to navigate social networks the way they did in 2008. (Okay, a lot of them still need help, but they don’t want help, which amounts to the same thing.) So it’s time I moved on to something else.

“Angelique & Friends” predates “A.F.MarCom.” It also predates social media. It predates the Internet. Gee, I hope I didn’t scare my younger readers just now.

Originally I was a writer, an editor, and a belly-dancer. Soon I was also a dance troupe leader and an event producer. It wasn’t much of a stretch to become an entertainment agent.

In 2008, I took all the writing, graphics, web design, email, community management and social networking skills I used to build up Angelique & Friends Entertainment (1997 – 2008) and used them to create Angelique & Friends Marketing Communications.

In 2014, I’m going to take everything I learned as a marketing communications consultant and social media manager and apply it back to my own projects, which include blogs, chats, Facebook groups, a work of fiction, a work of non-fiction, and a potentially life-changing home addition. (How could a home addition be life-changing? I think my Canary friends can guess! ;)

 

A.F.MarCom is now A.F.M.ArCom:
Angelique & Friends Magical Artful Communities

 

#AskAngel, Art of Writing, Canary Chat and Green DreamHome are all communities that I run. I’ll also be revamping my old Angelique & Friends Entertainment website as a place to publish the things that I write, as well as to highlight some of my entertainer and artist friends.

You can still hire me as an editor and writing tutor. I tutor via Skype and email, so it’s convenient for everyone.

You can find all the articles I’ve written about marketing communications here, and I’m sure I’ll write a few more. You can subscribe to my newsletter and ask me ANYTHING on Twitter every Monday at Noon and 10pm Eastern during my #AskAngel chat.

See you on the web!

Angelique

Hey Angelique,

Isn’t it crazy how much we’ve had to evolve? Marketing / PR & Communications / Writing and editing have all come such a long way!

#RBchat had to re-evaluate too! We’ve stopped the chat and it’s now time to move onto other things.

I remember when i was building / moderating and administrating PHPbb forum spaces for clients. A sysops (more like the O.G of community managers)!

Keep doing what you do. I wish I could spend more time online with you on #AskAngel. Either way I wish you much success in all of your endeavours!

Keep rocking it. Christine.
