Are you ready to spotlight your destination, accommodations, eatery, brand, product, etc.? Then it is time to work with me, Dana Vento, a solid storyteller, and influencer. I’m a Pittsburgh transplant who was born and partially brought up in Chicago and I have the midwestern spirit that runs through my blood: I am not afraid of hard work, I am innovative, and very much an extrovert and that serves me well in working with you!
Work With Me, Dana Vento
What can I do? Why would you want to work with me, Dana Vento?
I have a lot of skills and I am always willing to learn more after all
the online universe and landscape changes often and I do too!
I can represent your product, brand, destination, accommodations, eateries, tour operators, etc.
For me, partnering with places, eateries, tour operators, products, accommodations that match my brand’s identity is fabulous and I have worked with 100’s of businesses over the years in the travel, food, and DIY industry!
My niches are Food, Travel, DIY, and a side of lifestyle.
I’ve written over 275+ recipes for a large small appliance online vendor and chances are, as popular as the vendor is, you’ve already used some of my recipes!
My site has hundreds of recipes as well. 2 of the recipes have millions of viewers.
Social Animal named me on their list of Social Influencers to watch in 2021 and my favorite social media is Instagram stories, it’s just fun!
Google stories seems to feature me regularly and the kicker… I just started using them!
I’ve traveled to over 24 states, and so many cities they actually can’t be totaled, 19+ Countries, etc. (and there WERE 5 more countries scheduled but COVID has kind of interfered with that at the moment)
One of my super powers for you to use.
I have been formally trained in Photography through a side hustle job I had so I do know my way around my favorite DSLR cameras but I also have a fabulous iPhone with the latest and greatest on it and I wield it like a sorcerers wand! It’s one of my superpowers.
The funny thing is, I love to take photos and sometimes I see more behind the camera than I do at the moment. I study, observe, and don’t take the captain obvious photo, that does no one any good!
There’s a lot of life to capture and a photo and a video is timeless. I can offer you
- photo captures
I can provide fabulous photos, stunning captures and showcase your brand, destination, accommodations, etc through very visual stories.
