Elissa Nauful is founder and CEO of Ballywho Social, one of Florida’s fastest growing social media agencies. Ballywho Social helps enterprise brands who wish to increase buzz and build awareness through organic, grassroots expansion to targeted social campaigns across multiple platforms. Brands look to Ballywho Social to help them build loyal, almost cult-like followings for their brands and businesses.
A new kind of company, Ballywho Social uses its revolutionary business model and custom tool — Laicos — to create and curate social content. Traditionally, these businesses were limited to utilizing expensive IT professionals or inexperienced “bloggers” within the hip, young college sect, which left them with only the hope that things were being marketed correctly within this constantly changing space.
Nauful is enjoying continued success with Ballywho Social, now in its third year — located in Wesley Chapel, Florida — and boasts a portfolio of clients across multiple industries. These clients rely on the marketing and product experts at Ballywho to develop, maintain, and grow their sphere of influence.
Nauful is also committed to working to give back to the community in which she lives with her two children. She contributes to a number of marketing, health, and veterans’ organizations throughout the United States. She is a member of the American Marketing Association and Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce, Junior League of Clearwater advisory board in addition to serving on the board of the national nonprofit “Our Veterans, Our Heroes.” She is also a Paul Harris Fellow from the New Tampa Rotary Club and has previously served as the chair of the Tampa Bay Chapter of the American Diabetes Association and on the board of Wheels of Success.
Nauful is a graduate of Clemson University, where she received a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from the College of Business and Behavioral Science.
