You know your brand’s story best. I can help you articulate what you’re trying to convey, then polish and package it up for lots of different audiences. I was one of the first of my peers to integrate social media into a marketing strategy, back when my boss asked, “What’s this Twitter thing? Should we be using it?” And I know how to take a really good idea and tailor it so it speaks to your your audiences.
