About Wise Training Owl

Our goal is to help small businesses become as successful as possible. When small businesses succeed, they create stability not only for themselves, but for their employees, families, and the communities that depend on them. By providing training on how to increase sales and run an efficient business, we help small businesses achieve this stability.

Websites never close and social media doesn’t stop after business hours, so neither do we. Our staff works remotely from virtual offices on flexible schedules, so we can support you at almost any time of the year.

Our success is dependent on your success. If you’re looking to create stability for your business, join us, and we'll show you how.

Since 2010, Danielle has been testing and implementing marketing strategies to increase sales for small businesses.

About Our Founder & Chief Trainer

Danielle Glick

Eight years of testing social media features, creating ads, writing email newsletters, and analyzing sales has taught Danielle the marketing techniques that work to increase sales for any small business, particularly those selling experiences via reservations, tickets, products, or collecting new customer requests online. Working with both first-time small business owners and experienced franchisees with multiple locations all over the U.S. has exposed Danielle to the wide variety of marketing challenges that small business owners face. Danielle now shares her proven marketing strategies with those who are ready to learn how to replicate others' success for themselves.

Danielle Glick is the Founder of DGdesign. She designed her first website in 1996 and has been educating herself on all aspects of digital, social, and Internet marketing ever since. As a self-motivated, analytical, yet creative thinker, her collective work experiences have given her the skills to strategize, design, execute, and measure Internet marketing campaigns that engage users and meet business goals.

Danielle graduated the University of Cincinnati in 2006 with an Honors Bachelor of Science in Digital Design, cum laude. Through college classes and co-op jobs, she learned user-friendly interface design patterns, principles of graphic design, and how to create all forms of digital multimedia, including: photography, video production, 3D modeling, animation, game design, and creative copywriting. 

Facebook Certified Digital Marketing Associate

In 2019, Danielle became one of the first people in the world to become a Facebook Certified Digital Marketing Associate. People who pass this exam can identify the different platforms that make up Facebook's family of products (including Instagram), establish a business presence on them, understand advertising fundamentals, communicate the value proposition of ad features, and read reporting analytics. With this certification, you can trust Danielle has incorporated Facebook's most profitable features into our training, so you won't have to take the Facebook Blueprint courses, too.

Before social media marketing existed, Danielle spent the first four years of her post-collegiate career as a User Experience Designer (UXD) or Information Architect (IA) at large corporations and ad agencies. The UXD philosophy that “all content must make sense to the target audience” still permeates her work today.

Danielle as “Dallas Foodie”

Danielle is perhaps most famously known as “Dallas Foodie”, one of the top influential, independent social media food journalists, or “food bloggers”, in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. From 2009 to 2016, her Dallas Foodie experiences and network connections gave her firsthand knowledge of how best to market restaurants, bars, wineries, and food events to new and existing customers; and how to influence other food bloggers and food critics. Read more about how Dallas Foodie influences over 57,000 people with every post.
