Linda Jo Thornberg is the Vice President of Corporate Communications and PR, but her passion lies in Business Development. She works with businesses of all sizes including, small, medium and multi-location businesses. She specializes in brand awareness, local PR and social media integration, as well as online reputation, online review and testimonial generation.
Someone once asked her for her elevator pitch and she replied “Hmm. my elevator pitch…interesting… I think it goes deeper for me… It is passion. I have the honor of helping businesses build and promote their image and reputation… I love working with a business finding out what their goals are and working together as a team. There are so many options out there from blogging and digital PR, search engine optimization, and mobile marketing APPS. My job is to educate the business owner. It is a whole new world of how buyers buy and what influences them. It is all about how a company makes them feel even more now than ever.”
Her experience in her professional life and her education has given her the tools to be able to see companies not only from a business perspective, but as the consumer as well. She believes in treating every client as if she is their partner. She commented “There are no two businesses that are alike; of course they all have similarities.” She feels her success has been in researching and listening to her clients business history, identifying the business strengths and weaknesses, researching competitors and demographics and listening to the goals and the future plans for her clients. Then working with businesses in laying out a customized marketing plan to reach business owners strategic goals.
She feels that one of the things that sets Higher Images apart from other Digital Marketing Companies is that we take a look at your business and put ourselves in your shoes and what is best for the business to build your reputation and in turn your revenue.
Outside of work Linda Jo enjoys traveling with her husband around the country and attending Pittsburgh sporting events such as the Steelers, Pirates and Penguin games. She also loves going to see live music whether it is a local band or a concert at any venue.
