“With Maureen’s strategic guidance and partnership, we dove fully into the world of social media marketing.

If you’re looking to promote your company with free media attention, and who isn’t, then running continual well-timed content via a blog, YouTube and social media channels is a great idea. Small, cost conscious start-ups and nonprofits like our client, Amicus, cut through the competitive noise thanks to info-spreading channels like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
The main thing is to be creative, edgy and worthy of buzz.
