Speaker Bio: Samantha Vlasceaunu
Samantha Vlasceaunu, The TikTok Coach (@thetiktokcoachsamv) is on a mission to convince businesses and brands that TikTok is not just for teenagers! She is an entrepreneur, mom of two, and TikTok coach. Sam is rapidly becoming the go-to source for learning the app and teaching businesses/brands how to grow followers and convert them into paying customers. When COVID-19 hit, her business (@travelingmunchkin) had to shut down and she had to pivot - FAST. That's when she realized that she'd been using TikTok all along and had grown her following to over 125k in just months. Light bulb moment: Maybe she should be teaching others how to do that too! Fast forward to today and Sam works with social media strategists, parents, accountants, lawyers, fitness trainers - you name it... Beyond the tips and tricks (which she is a wizard at) she helps businesses learn how to use this rapidly growing app as a sales funnel for their business.
