Hello, I'm Mervi Eskelinen

An artist, geek girl, marketer, designer, web developer, consultant and coach devoted to help you to be undeniable.

Born somewhere in rural Finland, at a place called Maaninka, partially raised by a cat (he tried, at least), I learned to secretly believe in faeries and other creatures of the forest.

Through two decades of experience and education, I have grown into a multi-talent of online presences and businesses. Today, in addition to my degree in digital media, I am a certified marketer. I add branding, web design, social media, search engine optimisation (SEO), user experience management, email lists, marketing and personality in a colourful mix. It's kind of like making magic potions.

What does an Online Business Consultant & Coach do?

Comprehensive work with businesses online includes everything from branding and web design, to social media updates and search engine optimisation (SEO). It is a perfect mix of inbound and outbound marketing, such as blog posts, emails, podcasts, videos, and advertisement. An Online Business Consultant & Coach has a wide understanding of online technologies, phenomenons and interaction. I can help you to apply that understanding to your website, social media, ads, and other parts of your online presence. I coach, consult, and offer tailored hands-on help.

My origin story

In 1994, for my 13th birthday, I was given my first computer. It was a used 386, Intel inside, running Windows 3.11. I toyed around it most of my free time. Four years later, during Finnish high-school lukio, I made my first website at GeoCities. After graduating from lukio, I moved to Helsinki, our capital city. I like to say I'm an urban country girl.

I've been a web designer and developer for almost two decades. At first it was a hobby. Soon, alongside my first real job, I was neck deep in making, tweaking, fixing and updating websites. I built my first blogging content management systems from scratch, thus familiarising myself with databases, coding and design. For a moment I studied computer science before switching to digital media.

During my studies I became a freelance web designer and developer. The studies consisted of courses in design, development, production, scriptwriting and audiovisual studies. I wrote my thesis about utilising social media in business-to-business marketing. 2010 I was slapped with a degree, Bachelor of Culture and Arts. Since then I have been crafting websites, social media and marketing for various types of customers and, of course, for my own businesses.

In the beginning of this year I moved from hands-on design and development to more educational and information based work. Now I consult and coach businesses on utilising their online presences to become distinguished and grow.
