I work with you closely to develop an event that best serves your business goals. Whether that's launching a new product/service, or if you're just looking for a focus group to sample and provide feedback. I've successfully planned and executed events as small as 30 attendees to over 500 attendees for brands, restaurants, and non-profits. Contact me today and let's get your brand in front of new customers!
social media + Digital strategy
Social media is an ever changing ecosystem that involves having a strong digital strategy as it's backbone. I will show you industry tactics and tools that will help automate your marketing and free your time so you can focus on more important aspects of building your business. One of the first things we will do is perform a social media audit so we can have a clear picture of how your brand is being presented to your audience. Contact me today to learn more!
I'm one of few active influencers that have played on both sides of the business, as a seller and a buyer. Therefore, I understand both sides of the coin and can help you create a customized influencer marketing program. There are many bots and fake accounts out there pretending to be your next influencer, and I will show you how to maneuver the landscape and save you lots of money and time. Contact me today and let's find the best influencers to represent your brand/business!
Branding is one of the most important elements of your business as it sets you apart from your competitors and keeps you aligned with your mission and goals. According to Business Insider, "If your branding gives you sufficient uniqueness and desirability, you can employ a pricing strategy that optimizes profits." I will help you learn more about yourself, your brand, and audience through strategic consulting and creating a market research plan to help you learn more about our audience. Looking to create a logo and brand guide? I can help you out with that as well! Contact me today and let's chat about your brand!
instagram activation + growth
I organically grew my Instagram account, Eat.Drink.Dish, to 50,000 in 4 years. I've also helped grow Instagram accounts in the healthcare and meal kit industries by 30-50%, while working as their digital strategist. The social media world is constantly changing and if you don't practice consistency, your brand can easily get lost in the crowd. I will help you activate your account and implement competitive growth strategies to bring your brand in front of the right audience. Contact me today for rates and availability.

about Golnaz Yamoutpour
I've spent the last 5 years diving deep into project management, digital marketing, influencer marketing, and being an integral part of the Minnesota food scene. I built an organic digital platform, Eat.Drink.Dish, which has allowed me to be a part of such things as: The 2018 Minnesota Food Guide and campaign lead by Andrew Zimmern and Wendy Meadley, City Page's Readers' Choice 'Best Instagram' for 4 consecutive years, a guest speaker at the University of Minnesota, and winning Zagat's 1st Annual Foodie Award in 2017. All while working full-time and going to school part-time for my MBA, which I completed in 2016.
Now, I'm embarking on a new journey to help others in their quest to entrepreneurship and in strengthening their digital marketing, branding, and social media presence.
My first taste of entrepreneurship was when I was 7 years old and I started walking our neighbor's dog for $1 a day. Then, I started going door-to-door selling costume jewelry, and stray cats that I found roaming around our apartment complex. At the ripe age of 8, I was the youngest cashier at my parent's fast-food restaurant in downtown Minneapolis. For the next 10+ years, I did everything from cashiering to making sandwiches, to stocking and inventory.
At the age of 16, I started waitressing. First at a small diner to gain some experience and then, as I went off to college, I applied to work at a fine-dining restaurant in downtown Minneapolis. I waitressed there for 5 years to help pay for my education. While at the University of Minnesota, I studied Landscape Architecture and Nutrition, and volunteered at a non-profit for 3 years teaching kids and families about health and wellness.
In the past 4 years, I've had the opportunity to work with all types of restaurants and brands through Eat.Drink.Dish and help bring them to light to an audience of 60,000+ through events, social media, articles, newsletters, and affiliate programs like Savour Deals and The Minnesota Food Guide.
