Atlanta, GA (PressExposure) May 30, 2012 -- The Brand Buzz Network (BBN) is owned and operated by In Charge Social Media, LLC, a social media start-up and management company with offices in Atlanta, South Florida and New York. Originally founded by Lisa Samples, from Life with Lisa, BBN has been connecting brands and bloggers since 2009.
Lisa Samples currently lives in Atlanta with her husband and two sons. With over 15 years working as an executive in "Corporate America" she finally left to pursue working her social media projects full time in January 2012. You can find her writing on Life with Lisa about travel, Atlanta, food/recipes, and other topics of interest. She is also a writer for Let's Play, a Dr Pepper Snapple Group (site that encourages kids and families to get active nationwide) and she is a regular contributor on SheSpeaks.com. Lisa has been featured on CNN Money, CBS Better Mornings Atlanta, and various other media outlets and has done consulting for brands such as Ford, Xbox, Dove, and more. She is currently the CEO and President of In Charge Social Media.
In Charge Social Media, LLC has recently decided to grow the Brand Buzz Network (BBN) and its team to help grow resources for both Bloggers & Brands.
The newly appointed Community Manager, Deb Thompson is "living the dream" in a small northern Michigan town with her husband and teen daughter. She also has an adult son that flew the nest last year. She quit the corporate grind last year to pursue the things she loves: travel, food & wine, photography, and social media. She shares the story of her crazy life at JustShortofCrazy.com and has been a guest blogger at i.seekissimmee.com and hotelcoupons.com. She loves the opportunities that social media provides for people to live life on their own terms.
Deb has worked as a Campaign Lead for brands such as Sara Lee, Motorola, Meredith, Equal, and Silk when she isn't been busy blogging or spending time with her family.
The newly appointed Managing Editor, VS Grenier is an award-winning children's author, founder & owner of Stories for Children Publishing, LLC, Partner of The World of Ink Network, award-winning editor-in-chief of Stories for Children Magazine and chief editor for Halo Publishing, Int; as well as the host of the blog talk radio shows Stories for Children, The Writing Mama, Families Matter and What is Success. A California girl at heart and former fashion buyer (for companies such as Brighton Collectibles, Frederick's of Hollywood, and Torrid/Hot Topic), Grenier lives in Southern Utah with her supportive husband, their three children and the family's miniature schnauzer Taz.
The newly appointed Blogger Select Manager, Shasta Walton is a single mom to four amazing kids. She is also the owner of Faithfully Free, a personal blog where she shares her joys, struggles, and everything in between. Shasta is currently going back to school for Public Relations, and longs to move to California or New York. She has a passion for giving back, and hopes to one day serve as a missionary overseas as well.
Her love for social media began with her first Facebook food fight, and she hasn't looked back. Sharing the things that matter to her with people from around the world, is one of her favorite things to do, especially when she's doing good and helping others in the process. Shasta has had the pleasure of writing for I.See.Kissimmee, Day-Timer Moms, and Disney Events.
The BBN also has some exciting news about their new feature for bloggers & brands - they are now hosting a new Portfolio Service where blogger's media kits will be accessible to PR/Companies according to niche.
