Yvette Sonneveld works with owners of small and medium sized businesses who want to generate leads, clients and revenue using inbound marketing strategies. She fell in love with inbound marketing because it is based on the principles of helping existing and potential clients to know, like and trust you. Therefore, one of her favorite strategies is to help create content that spotlights both the business owner and some key staff members in a way that radiates both their personality and expertise. In order to make all this inbound marketing magic happen, she uses a secret recipe that includes ingredients such as training, coaching, consultancy and hands on assistance. Yvette specializes in real estate and financial services but has also successfully worked with clients in retail, consultancy and holistic healthcare.
Yvette has been using WordPress since 2006. At that time it took almost 9 months to get hand coded websites listed with Google. As soon as she learned WordPress sites got listed within 24 hours, she created her first WordPress site, it did get listed within 24 hours and she never looked back.
Yvette’s first time volunteering at a WordCamp was in 2014, in Miami. This year, she intends to volunteer with at least 3 WordCamps and she has added both contributing to the marketing team and being a speaker to the mix.
