#MediaMonday, your first “networking” opportunity of the week, comes to us from Sandra Munoz, creator of Latinaology.com, an inspired lifestyle blog with Latina flair, and columnist for Prensa Hispana, Arizona’s top Spanish language newspaper with a weekly circulation of 76,000.
So, Sandra, time to share!
What do you want to tell the blogosphere about yourself today?
Among the many hats I wear every day, I am an entrepreneur, columnist, blogger, and active bilingual social media influencer.
As the founder of Latinaology, I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with some incredible travel, food, health, beauty, and entertainment brands, including: Toyota, Lexus, Volkswagen, Nuetrogena, Narciso Rodriguez, Harrah’s, and Four Seasons Resorts. I work to develop a bridge between brands and practical lifestyle applications. Sure, a car review is wonderful to read, but I like to include the experience you can have on a road trip with that car under review, like this piece I did to review the 2017 Volkswagen Alltrack in October. By building bridges between brands and life experiences, I’m able to connect my readers to more valuable, entertaining, and practical content, while offering brands a true collaborative experience. And, you know what they say, “collaboration is the new competition,” at the root of truly successful growth, there is connection and collaboration. During this time of growth for Latinaology, I plan to continue connecting brands to brands, brands to readers, and creating quality content along the way.
I’m open to pitches and ideas for both media outlets and can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. My Twitter handle is @thessmunoz and I can be found on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/munoz.m.sandra.
Outside of my roles in the media, I run a very successful marketing and social media consulting business that specializes in connecting clients with the largest and growing consumer group, the Latino market. One of our clients is an iconic figure whom I have re-branded and launched as one of the largest retailers in the world. In 2009, I was recognized by the Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Univision-Radio as one of the 40 Hispanic Leaders under 40. I also received the prestigious Governor's Volunteer Award in 2005. I am a graduate of the Hispanic Leadership Institute, Valley Leadership, and was hand-selected to be part of Maricopa County's Executive Development for Government Employees.
