Founder/Strategist/Consultant

Elizabeth first started on Instagram in 2017 as an artistic outlet as she stayed at home with my babies! She quickly became fascinated with the nerdier side of things and started listening to hours of podcasts, reading thousands of pages of forums, taking courses from experts in the field, and A/B testing like crazy!

Elizabeth started taking clients and teaching them how to grow their own pages in 2019. She quickly fell in love with the work of making something easy for people, when it had been a challenge before.

In these behind-the-scenes meetings, Elizabeth started hearing more and more about agencies claiming to be social media gurus taking small business money but not giving any results. So many agents had never grown a platform and didn’t know what it took to do it properly.

Next Level

How Dura was Born

Ashley and Elizabeth started to meet for coffee and talk about the podcasts they were listening to in 2018. They shared the continuing education tidbits that helped them most.

They both kept saying they wished there was a way to work together since they loved talking about social media so much. We both wanted to be able to work from home.

Elizabeth started to take on consulting clients. At the end of consulting sessions, many clients wished aloud that I would be able to just do their social media for them. Since Elizabeth trusted Ashley she kept asking Ashley if she could take on any more clients, but Ashley’s schedule was full.

Lightbulb moment!!!!

After one of these meetings, Elizabeth called Ashley with a plan! What if they added Elizabeth’s friend Kathryn to the mix. They could train Kathryn to join them and each would take different roles of the work, which would allow them to take on more clients. The added benefit would be none of them would have to work alone and no one would be overwhelmed!!

Elizabeth trained Kathryn to do the posting and sharing. Ashley trained her to design. Elizabeth initially did most of the copywriting, but slowly started passing off pieces of that to Kathryn (who was also a talented writer). Ashley did all the communications, and gathered the data!
