About us


Serious4Social was founded to help businesses of all shapes and sizes put the power of social to work for you. 

Our founder, Jackie Funk, has always been social. When she took the marketing helm at Aptela, a leading provider of business-class Voice over IP (VoIP) solutions for the SMB market, she took social to an entirely new level. With a shoestring marketing budget and a requirement to build the Aptela brand and drive monthly recurring revenue (MRR) for the business, she quickly turned to online marketing and social media. Through a combination of SEO, PPC, content marketing and marketing automation, she quickly built a high quality pipeline for Aptela’s inside sales team. This engine allowed the company to drive up revenues from $3M to $8M in just 2.5 years and set the company up for its eventual acquisition by Vocalocity (now Vonage Business). Jackie then moved back to the enterprise B2B world as the VP of Marketing for Dimension Data Americas, a $1.5B IT Services and Solutions Provider. While there, she helped the organization learn how to put the power of social selling, social recruiting and social engagement to work. Jackie and her team are now ready to help your business. Whether you’re looking to become a social selling organization – to listen, educate and engage in a new way; step up your social recruiting to locate critical employees and/or shorten time to hire; or simply improve engagement within your organization, we can help. 

When Jackie is not helping businesses with their social challenges, she's busy helping tweens and teens understand the importance of their personal brand, and providing guidance to parents about how to stay on top of their kids' social presence.
