Teresa Pangan, PhD, RDN

Social Media & Brand Strategist, Founder

Teresa Pangan, Social Media & Brand StategistTeresa founded and ran the web design firm Webnoxious for twelve years.  She loved designing websites that would express a business’ personality and attract their target audience. Some businesses saw their traffic more than triple after launching their new look and feel.

Now she still works online but instead of websites she is creating online strategies for businesses to get heard above the noise using social media.  She savors the challenge of matching businesses up with their ideal target markets so they can use their strengths to serve others, to make an exceptional difference in the world.

Teresa understands the struggles of small businesses.  She is passionate about making social media understandable and results focused. She knows first hand how valuable a commodity time is and how key it is to get the most from social media with the least investment in time.  She frees up businesses to focus on their work by systemizing their social media as much as possible.

She also helps businesses understand how they can be authentic and show their passion online. Clients are relieved to know they can be themselves and this will actually attract people more powerfully to their business.

Teresa honed her social media skills while spending a year in an exclusive business program with Facebook guru Mari Smith (ranked number 3 by Forbes in 2013 as most influential women in social media) and attended the first global social media conference in San Diego 2013 (Social Media Marketing World).  She also has completed Andrea Vahl’s (co-author of Facebook Marketing All-in-One for Dummies) social media school classes and Amy Porterfield’s (co-author also of Facebook Marketing All-in-One for Dummies) Facebook Marketing Profit Lab classes.  She strives to learn best practices – how to invest the least amount of time and money to get strong results.
