Meet Amy Schmittauer

A professional in digital relations, Amy helps businesses create a strategy to organically grow online presence and social relationships through media outreach, content creation, and editorial management. Previous clientele have included small business events, event planners, marketing agencies, video production studios, magazine publications, authors, travel professionals, restaurants, real estate professionals, technology resources, bloggers, and other content creators.

In addition to strategy consulting, Amy is a video content creator working with brands to develop interesting informational vlogs (or “video blogs”) to share with their audience. Think small-scale video production: professional, but more personal. Handling everything from scripting, personality, editing, and production, working with her to develop your video content is an effective way to outsource while also create a partner for your brand.

Amy is also a contributor in public relations, social media, and entrepreneurship for many online publications aside from Savvy Sexy Social, including LifehackTechcocktailMetropreneur, and Aspire Magazine.

Many who meet her are disappointed to find out her last name is actually not Schmittastic. But she is also very well known for always having a video camera in people’s faces, mostly her own. Highlights of her vlogs include meeting her favorite Youtuberkicking off the Fox Road Trip in LA, and describing a run-in with American Idols in her hometown.  In addition to tuning in to the Triple S Daily episodes on Savvy Sexy Social, you can follow along by subscribing to her personal Youtube channel or checking out The Schmittastic Vlogs.

Amy went to school for Political Science and thought she wanted to go into campaign fundraising. She worked for the best fundraiser in the state of Ohio at the most prestigious law firm in Columbus, helping direct the most successful fundraising event for the Ohio Democratic House Caucus in Central Ohio and the second most successful in the state. But even after many more successful events for the likes of Governor Ted Strickland, Senator Sherrod Brown and others national and state officials, she discovered her real passion in new media.

Her career in social media began with freelance community management for small businesses and individuals who needed help getting their start with an online presence. These practices quickly grew into strategy consulting opportunities that included teaching owners and employees how to properly execute a marketing strategy through social media by engaging an audience instead of pushing sales.
