(Johnson City, Tenn.) MarketingMel, a public relations firm for business professionals, recently celebrated one year in business. Founded by President and CEO Mary Ellen Miller, the firm works with business professionals to create their personal brands. “Social networking has been a great differentiator for me in getting out ahead of the pack in that space and advising my business clients to do the same,” says Miller. “Facebook, LinkedIn and twitter, among others, provide a tremendous opportunity for creating and expanding upon both a personal and business brand.”
Miller thanks her “fantastic professional clients who have helped me to grow the business” over the past year.
Miller is regularly asked to speak about social networking for business. She recently addressed 100 REALTORS® at the Bristol TN/VA Association of REALTORS® annual awards meeting. She spoke to the Strategic Marketing Group of Kingsport where she was invited back to conduct a workshop on growing business through social networking strategies later this month.
Since founding MarketingMel she has been featured on WJHL-TV and WJCW Radio and in the Johnson City Press Her Magazine.
