Women of Balance: The digital world with Sonya Keenan


Do you need to get your head around the world of small business marketing?  To learn how to use social media to boost your brand, set up an online business or automate your small business so you have more time to focus on the things that matter?

Then Sonya Keenan is your woman.

Sonya Keenan

Sonya and Deborah set up BBDH a few years ago. Together they have worked to build a highly successful business that is expanding each day.

In addition to running the back end of Balance, (including the camera work) Sonya is also a business coach, a marketing consultant and passionate advocate for women in small, medium businesses.

She brings to her clients and Balance,  over 20 years’ experience in senior management and marketing positions within government corporations, private companies and ASX listed corporations, including Mirvac, Lend Lease, APN News & Media, Golden Casket Corporation and Coles Myer.

Sonya has also owned, managed and sold a number of small businesses including  How to Cook, the Sunshine Coast’s premier boutique retail cooking store and school for more than a decade.

Some would say, what Sonya doesn’t know about business isn’t worth knowing and now she is sharing that knowledge and passion for business with SMEs.

She firmly believes to have a successful business in this new digital world, you need passion, something that SME’s usually have in abundance. From passion comes authenticity and an ability to connect with consumers online and harness the power that the digital economy offers.

“Life is meant to be fun, I believe that passion is the most attractive human quality and that everyone has a story that will surprise you- You just have to listen

“My personal passion is helping business owners to understand how they can capitalise on the opportunity of the digital revolution- think global act local”

“Our organisation O.M.G works with our clients to help them tell their story – the key element is creating a strategy that can be scaled and automated.”

Sonya walks what she talks with her business partner Deborah Hutton in their joint venture flagship project Balance by Deborah Hutton. Sonya is also a certified Partner with Digital Marketer (a premier digital marketing education community), Infusionsoft (the leading small business CRM software) and StoryBrand (US copywriting gurus).

Through her OMG Coaching program Sonya also has already helped dozens of small business find their voice online.
