Kaila Duran

With more than a decade of experience in the dynamic realm of marketing communications, I have expertise in influencer marketing, talent management, marketing strategy, public relations, event planning, and corporate communications. My professional journey has spanned in-house collaborations with renowned brands, impactful roles at advertising agencies, and direct engagements with influencers, where I’ve steered business operations and acted as a trusted talent and brand manager.

K. Duran Comms was founded in 2020 to pursue my dream of entrepreneurship, and to help as many content creators enhance their businesses as I possibly can. My business model caters to entrepreneurs building online and digital businesses. I’m here to support your overarching strategies operationally or take your business to the next level with talent management support.

Over the span of my 10 year career, I’ve worked with 100s of household brands. Behr Paint, Zevia, Shark Ninja, Kohler, Nespresso, Lundberg, Jack Link’s, and countless other big names. Many of my brand partners come back time and time again to partner with my clients annually! 

My Clients Feel Supported and Value and Appreciate the Knowledge I Bring to Their Businesses

I’ve worked with Kaila for three plus years, first starting as an in-house talent manager responsible for negotiating contracts with brands and overseeing the execution of sponsored content on the website and social media, and then moving into a leadership role in operations where she managed content development, email marketing, public relations, social media and day-to-day project management of running a food media site. Kaila takes initiative, takes pride in her work and takes on projects with independence and confidence, which is so valuable for small business owners that are often resource-limited. I’ve gotten to know Kaila so well over the years and she’s proven to have creative problem solving skills, a strong team-player attitude and a sense of resourcefulness that makes her an integral part of any team.

When I first reached out to Kaila, I was completely overwhelmed by the world of content creation. But by the end of our time together, I left with both an arsenal of essential documents (a comprehensive rate sheet; an updated media kit) as well as the confidence that I can pursue this as a full-time career. I’ve already started reaching out to my list of dream brands, and I know Kaila will be cheering me on every step of the way. I can’t recommend her enough!
