OK guys. Enough of the wallowing in self pity found in my first couple of blog posts. MarketingMel is prepared to launch! The marketing and PR enterprise I have dreamed of for years is now taking shape. Yesterday former colleague Tim Story and I sat at Panera (my new office away from the home office) and registered my domain name, http://marketingmel.com. Since I had already established my presence on twitter with that name it seemed logical to carry it over to my business. Furthermore, anyone who knows me well knows me by my nickname, Mel.
Who will be my clients?
Professional services firms: lawyers, physicians, CPA’s, etc.
I spent five years marketing attorneys and I know and understand the nuances and subtleties of marketing professional services. I have a communications degree, an MBA and I’ve spent the past year immersed in technology. (That following a career in media, agency and corporate communications.)
What will I do?
Create marketing , public relations and social media solutions and strategies for professional service providers.
Right now I’m going to a women’s retreat at church. I need Him more than ever for guidance as I start out on this new venture.
