Erin King is an award-winning entrepreneur, best-selling author and digital persuasion expert. She is the Amazon best-selling author of Digital Persuasion: Sell Smarter in the Modern Marketplace.
Erin is the Founder and CEO of Socialite Agency, which elevates digital communication styles to attract attention, increase influence, and sell smarter. Socialite’s clients include the The Oscars, The United States Navy, ABC/Disney, Nelson Mandela’s Legacy of Hope, VISA, Siemens, Hilton Worldwide, Johnson and Johnson, Hitachi, Mutual of Omaha, Merck, Abbott Laboratories, Synchrony Financial, and dozens of others.
Socialite Agency, the world’s only social media firm specializing exclusively in live events, has helped Fortune 100 brands catapult their social media success via award-winning digital activations and campaigns. Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) awarded Socialite’s work with FreemanXP as “Best Social Media” across the entire meetings industry.
Erin started her first venture, Jump Digital Media, at the age of 25 and cut her teeth building websites for brands like Whole Foods, Black and Decker, and Linksys. Her second venture, PMS.com, was a Dollar Shave Club-type subscription model for women’s monthly healthcare supplies. Her experience running these digital enterprises has made her a highly sought-after keynote speaker for thousands of people from all industries on stages around the world.
When off-duty, the former world champion Irish step dancer and NCAA Division I athlete can be found in Laguna Beach, CA – biking, hiking, surfing, snowboarding, boating – basically anything outdoors will do for this ball of fire – with her husband Hartman. As a dual citizen of the United States and Ireland, Erin is very close to her east coast, massive, crazy Irish Catholic family.
Her life mantra is “attitude of gratitude,” and right now, her only five-year plan is that someday she will be home long enough for Hartman to finally allow them to get a dog, which will be a King Charles Cavalier named Louise.
