How hype girls turned into online engagement pros
You know who hype girls are right?
They’re the ones at parties getting people to dance, talking to everyone, social butterflies and engaging people to pump them up. They don’t belong to one particular group, but rather they jump from one group to another.
This term describes me — which is why I’m a natural on social media and am able to drive online engagement to attract audiences and build communities. I’ve always been this way.
I like people to be happy and have fun. I like to encourage and inspire. I like to make people feel comfortable so they can connect. This is just who I am and it comes so easily.
“Beth has an infectious joy that draws amazing people to her. She is highly respected and well loved, and she has an enormous heart. I am extremely grateful for the care and interest she has for me and for what is most important to me, and I’ve seen her bring this same level of curiosity and enthusiasm into everything she does.” – Ben Dulaney
