Testimonials

Melissa is extremely well organized and thorough in her planning and execution. She communicates with precision and is always looking for new ways to improve our brand’s presences and make us aware of new developments on social media to stay on top of this ever-changing landscape. Melissa is very proactive and can be trusted with a project from start to finish without additional follow-up. She is a true gem and is a valuable asset to our marketing team! —Jenny Beverage, Troxel Brand Manager at Weaver Leather LLC

Melissa has been essential in building my blog. While I was confident with the content, I was not strong technically. I came to her looking for advice on how to get started and she’s walked me through every step from finding my brand’s voice, determining our target audience and creating brand standards. She did a wonderful job building my website, helping me decide on everything from navigation/structure to proofreading and editing all of my copy. Her experience in social media marketing is strong, and her connections in this community are helpful. We’re now working together to launch a marketing plan! She helped me figure out which marketing channels to invest energy in based on my budget, has trained me on social media best practices, is taking the lead in my influencer marketing initiatives and more. I’m so excited I found her. She’s exactly what I needed! —Susan Drake, Owner, Nourish and Charm

I highly recommend Melissa for social media relations. She has a very keen understanding of the importance of brand management and carries that through all of the different social media outlets. She is fast, very current with what is trending, and a strong communicator. —April Johnson, Independent Restaurant Consultant

Melissa was instrumental in training my team and I about proper social media strategy. She’s patient, thorough and gave us all the tools to succeed. I now have customers coming into our store commenting that they found us on social media and that’s entirely because of Melissa. I highly recommend her. She’s the best! —Elaine Kight, Local Business Owner

Melissa is one of the most professional individuals I have ever met in our business. Organized, incredibly proactive and positive, she is a great team member you can rely on. —Joel Paynel, Creative Director / Visual & UI Designer
