ABOUT

Hi! I’m so glad you’re here. I’m Olive, the owner and founder of OLEA. (Pronounced “oh-lee-uh,” like the Greek word for “olive”!). Pictured to the left is me with my super talented husband, Troy, and our little girl Stella (the best chocolate lab ever IMO) at our favorite spot on Ayers Creek in Ocean City, MD.

As someone who lives in a beautiful small town on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, I have a particular soft spot for small businesses, solo entrepreneurs, and nonprofits. They are the heart of our community. That’s why, after over 20 years in the corporate world (and a short stint running a local chamber of commerce), I decided to take the leap and start OLEA Marketing Solutions in 2018. And, I am so glad I did!

OLEA grew out of my passion for helping people and solving challenging problems – by giving confidence, support, and a voice to others so they can find success and shine. 

How can OLEA Help You?

OLEA will help you gain a clear understanding of what makes your business shine – and how that can help you stand out in the crowded marketplace. There are plenty of businesses that do what you do, but there is only one of you….and that is what makes your business unique.  I will work with you to create messaging that resonates with your target audience.

After that, OLEA will build a marketing plan and social media strategy tailored to your specific needs…not some cookie-cutter template. 

And beyond that, OLEA is here to be your business’s best and loudest cheerleader. Whether it’s learning exactly how to use social media to drive sales, revamping your website, or building a brand from scratch, we’ve got you covered.

What's it Like to Work with OLEA?

We understand just how difficult it is to run a successful business on a shoe-string budget and how easy it is to push marketing to the back burner when you feel overwhelmed. I’m guilty of it myself. 

Think of OLEA as your personal marketing trainer. We may push you out of your comfort zone a little, but we got your back every step of the way.
