My name is Jenn Herman – yes, that’s Jenn with two “n”s. If you grew up in the 80s you probably had at least 4 or 5 Jen’s in every class! So, it became important to differentiate ourselves and I became two-n-Jenn.
I currently live in San Diego and I am so blessed to call this city home! I’m originally from Canada, having lived in BC, Alberta, and Ottawa, but came to the US in 2003. I am a SoCal girl through and through and now officially complain when the temperature drops below 70 degrees! 😉
Over my various jobs and careers I have garnered a unique perspective on business and what drives success. I’ve worked in the hospitality industry and retail industry as well as customer service and sales. I have won awards for my customer service skills and how those skills have helped the companies I worked for. I have learned the utmost value of true customer service and believe that all successful businesses are built on great customer service. I have also worked in the corporate world and in the government contract industry in both land systems and aerospace sectors, holding positions in administrative capacities, HR, marketing, and IT. All of these positions have helped me understand how decisions in one department can affect so many others. I bring this knowledge and awareness to all of my marketing tactics and training to ensure my clients see success with their online marketing efforts.
I enjoy working with people and coaching or teaching others to maximize their skills. I’m always looking for ways I can help others achieve their business goals. I tend to be a perfectionist and insist on giving customers my best product every time. In order to be this tedious, I am hyper organized and always have an abundance of to-do lists and checklists on my desk. I firmly believe that organization is the key to success. I am also, however, a creative person and enjoy bringing my design and artistic contributions to everything I do. On my down time, I like to use my creative whims to draw or bake or find other crafty things to do. I am also an avid baseball fan and try to get to as many games every year as possible.
Since starting Jenn’s Trends in 2013, I have become a globally recognized expert in Instagram marketing and social media marketing. My blog has won the prestigious award of being a Top 10 Social Media Blog in both 2014 and 2015. I have had the honor of speaking at multiple social media conferences, teaching business owners like you the value of Instagram and social media to grow your business.
I have been featured in a variety of media and publications including the following:
- Social Media Examiner Podcasts and Blog Posts
- Mari Smith’s Inner Circle
- iBlog Magazine April 2015 Edition
- SteamFeed Blog
My goal in my blogs is to bring you relevant social media and business trends and discuss their applications, implications, and benefits. I will write from my perspective about the things I enjoy and use regularly. You will see that my writing style is casual and detailed. Be warned, brevity is NOT my strength. And my long-winded posts often reflect that. When I write a how-to post, it will be clear, detailed, and as helpful as possible. I also write with sarcasm, random rants, and other feelings. I believe that you should feel like you and I are really sitting down, having a conversation when you read my posts. I sincerely hope that you enjoy my articles!
