Hey there, thanks for checking out this page.
Hi, I’m Carissa Coles. Though my surname sounds foreign but I’m definitely not. Or maybe, I am not just sure about it.
I’m a Social Media Strategist and Analyst who is passionate about helping small businesses to create strategies, provide actions based on data and execute them.
I’m also the co-founder of EmergeLocal, a digital marketing agency in the Philippines where we help local businesses to reach more local customers, increase their brand awareness and get more leads online, without it feeling like an unnecessary expense.
I’ve worked with a number of local and international companies and have been enjoying it so far.
If you have a passion in establishing true relationship with your consumers and be socially relevant, this blog is for you.

“Carissa has been helping us post on social media and update content for our site for several months now. If I had to describe her qualities in terms of her work for us in two words, it would be consistent and punctual.

Training and Certifications
I love learning new things and hone my skills so I can provide top-notch services to my clients.
How I got into this stuff….
I first fell in love with eCommerce. I worked as a database specialist and a writer for an eCommerce company. After a few years, I decided to quit my job and work at home. I use what I’ve learned from my previous job and started getting clients online.
I’ve been using Social Media and Internet Marketing to promote my client’s products and services. I love what I’m doing because I know I’m giving valuable results.
Fast forward to where I am right now, having a career that allows me to work from home and spend my time doing things that I am passionate about.
More things about me:
1. Dreamed to have a spacious library. Books are investments.
2. Read a book about being an introvert. It’s confirmed.
3. A dog bit me when I was on my way to work. This led me being afraid of dog barking loudly.
4. Virgo is my zodiac sign.
5. I’m the eldest child and grew up giving justice to it.
6. I can spend my whole day watching my favorite TV series.
7. I’m an organizing junkie.
8. I want to learn how to swim.
9. I married my first boyfriend. He was my college sweetheart too.
10. I have an obsession with notebooks and pens.
I hope those “freakish” facts about me make you want to know me more and connect with me.
