Teija’s been involved in marketing in Finland and the USA for over a decade, writing SEO copy, articles, even a few novels, she’s done it all. She took over the digital and social media marketing for a major Finnish corporation in 2016, and over the past few years she’s become a bit of a social media marketing guru, developing a singular grasp on the analytics tools offered by the major social media platforms.
Having written three books and with a fourth on the way, it’s no wonder her primary focus is marketing books, authors and publishers these days.
