Bluebird Social Media is operated just outside of Bellingham, WA, by Abby Yates. Bluebird Social Media has grown organically from Abby’s passion to help small businesses to reach their customers online in a meaningful and affordable way. Abby also offers comprehensive marketing consulting services for projects large and small.
Working herself up from marketing coordinator to director, Abby has an impressive fourteen-year résumé which includes:
- Rebranding campaigns for million dollar properties
- Promotions focused on dollar-per-visit measurements
- Social media management that equates to brick-and-mortar return on investment
- Consulting campaigns for community-wide awareness about events and culture
- The ability to create a unique voice for businesses that translates to fan engagement and excitement
- Thoughtful and multi-faceted loyalty campaigns
It’s fair to say that Abby has a pretty clear understanding of what makes for a strong promotion—and what doesn’t. She’s a trend maker or can create compelling campaigns incorporating viral trends.
Passionate about local business and philanthropy, she’s served in many capacities for the local community including: Committee Member and Sponsor of the 2015 Boys & Girls Clubs of Whatcom County’s Key to Our Future Gala, 2014 Social Media Sponsor for the Whatcom Women in Business’ Business Woman of the Year Awards Dinner and Auction, Board of Directors for Big Brothers Big Sisters of NW Washington, the selection board for Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce’s Business of the Year awards, and spent three years on the Ski to Sea Blossomtime Grand Parade Committee. Abby is also a graduate of BWCCI’s Leadership Whatcom program and the sole annual scholarship recipient for 2012’s graduating class.
When not busy with her amazing clients, Abby can be found at home in beautiful Whatcom County located in Washington state, with her husband, Brandon, and their beautiful children, Merritt and Jemma.
A member of the Nooksack Indian Tribe, you might recognize Abby for her warm, outgoing personality, her Star Wars tattoo, or her love of karaoke.
