Amanda Benson-Tilch started her career as a business owner in Valencia, California. She owned and operated a flower shop for 3 years prior to getting into real estate. Her hard work, dedication to making a difference, and knowledge of the area quickly helped her gain many loyal clients and began establishing her presence in the Santa Clarita Valley. Six years and two children later, she joined the Hyatt Valencia family as Catering Manager, eventually being promoted to Business Travel Manager and Social Media Ambassador.
Amanda’s sales, marketing, social media experience, and community involvement landed her the Hyatt Public Relations Award of the Year in 2015 from Hyatt Corporate. The impression she made at Hyatt and the long-standing relationships she developed in the community over time led her to the Associate Publisher’s position at élite Magazine, a Santa Clarita Valley community magazine. During her time there, many of her advertising clients asked for her advice in marketing, social media direction or ways to help improve customer service. She loved helping people reach their goals and “Ask Amanda” Consulting was born.
Since its inception in 2017, Ask Amanda has helped over 50 businesses with connecting Business to Business (B2B), being an influencer, and Business to Customer (B2C). She specializes in those connections as well as teaching business owners how to be social on social media, offering marketing advice, and improving customer service by providing an unbiased opinion on how businesses are perceived by their customers.
Ask Amanda Consulting has recently grown to include The Behind the Business video series and The Ask Amanda Show, an interview style video & podcast series.
In her spare time (what little she has of it) Amanda likes to take short get-a-ways with her husband & friends to Los Olivos. However, you can usually find Amanda at any (or every) non-profit event in Santa Clarita. She currently serves on the College of the Canyons Foundation Board, is the Co-Chair of the College of the Canyons Alumni Committee, is the Vice Chair for the WiSH Education Foundation and on the committee for the SCV Senior Center. Amanda has a true passion for helping others.
