Our mission is clear

We empower the women who power the food web. 


Foodie Digital unblocks the creative, ingenious women of the online food world. We help community members achieve their full business and creative potential.

As someone who finds analytics, numbers, and data overwhelming and scary, Foodie Digital is a godsend. The support of Liane and her team allows me to focus on what I love doing. Their care, thoughtfulness, vision, and knowledge continue to amaze me each day.

Our chef kiss moment

We founded Foodie Digital for three reasons. We love food, we know tech, and we’re obsessed with helping other women reach their full potential.

And after more than a decade working in tech, we were done contorting ourselves to fit the corporate mold.

One day we were multitasking (#MomLife). As we cleaned up our kids’ rooms, we debated taking a big corporate contract on the phone. But something just didn’t feel right.

With the toy still in her hand, Liane said to Carla, 

Forget this. Let’s start that business we’ve been talking about.”

Mise en place

We had the idea for Foodie Digital. But like any good cook, we had to test it out.

We recruited a group of twelve food content creators to learn more. Their photography and recipes were on point, but they all struggled with their WordPress support and food blog and recipe SEO.

The women told us they were spinning their wheels. They watched videos and took endless online courses so they could pull together DIY tech solutions. 

Or they hired strings of WordPress experts, who didn’t stick around and didn’t understand the food and recipe niches.

The proof is in the pudding

Early on, some women in our focus group had big technical challenges that prevented their posts from performing. 

One participant had lost 75% of her site traffic—and her income! We found the problem, and her traffic shot back up overnight. 

We realized a one-size-fits-all approach to tech support and SEO (common in the industry) simply wouldn’t work. Every woman’s situation was unique. 

We knew we had to take an individualized approach to truly free women to do more of what they love.
