Maria Sipka, CEO and co-founder at Linqia is passionate about online communities and delivering value into this global ecosystem.
Linqia helps brands distribute their content and stories into the heart of the most active and thriving interest communities spanning across blogs, twitter, facebook, pinterest and more.
Linqia’s discovery, matching and outreach technology enables brands to connect directly with the storytellers who lead the mid to long tail of interest communities with an average reach of 15,000. Storytellers curate and share the brands content directly in the stream of conversation driving quality traffic, increased SEO, a deeper emotional footprint and higher conversions.
Prior to Linqia, Maria founded a content marketing agency in Sydney, Australia which she lead over a decade and then later served as the COO at XING based out of Hamburg, Germany until the company’s IPO in 2006.
Maria’s social vision is to connect leaders of online communities globally to foster education, access to opportunities and human connection.
