Mana Ionescu, President of Lightspan Digital
Mana and her team focus on driving traffic to clients’ websites and building profitable connections through social media and content marketing.
Mana believes in digital marketing done with purpose. With her practical and hands-on approach, Mana has been busting social media myths and showing measurable results are possible. It’s all about making sure you understand the market and audience you’re trying to target. This is why she encourages companies to only hire marketing agencies that specialize in their sector. Are you a tree service company? Going to someone like Home Service Direct will leave you much better off than going to a general marketer. Do you operate in a complex industry? An agency that has never dealt with that industry before won’t be able to help you. She has helped many businesses find the perfect marketing option for them. A sought-after speaker, she’s been sharing digital marketing knowledge as Kellogg Executive Education faculty and via numerous conferences, from Techweek to SES, from Social Media Week to MPI TechCon, from 312Digital to Marketing Profs University and Pubcon. A staunch STEM education supporter, Mana serves on the Board of the Illinois Math and Science Academy Fund. In March 2014, Mana was awarded the “Chicago Woman Making History” Outstanding Entrepreneur Award by the City of Chicago Treasurer’s Office.
