Get To Know Melonie

Before we can discuss the specific services that may be appropriate to grow your business, I’ll need to get to know you and your business well. But sharing with someone you don’t know, like or trust is not easy. I believe that getting to know me will help.

I founded Ask The Marketer to bring easy and affordable business growth solutions to start-ups, solopreneurs and small businesses…especially those specializing is “trusted adviser” services like attorneys, financial advisers, coaches, real estate brokers, movers, builders & contractors, plus healthcare professionals.

I’m passionate about helping you turn your company into a business that people talk about. I’ll challenge you to think differently to create a strong brand with compelling messaging and a powerful reputation that drives revenue and profits. Then, we’ll work hand-in-hand to execute a strategic plan so that you and your clients, customer, prospects, partners and friend spread the word about your business.

I was even cited on FOX 18 KLJB-TV with the following quote:

“Marketing is a game. One that a small business owner can win by knowing the rules and using them to your advantage. Rule #1…position yourself as an authority in your industry. This elevates your business to where you no longer need to compete on price or convenience.”

My philosophy

I have two simple philosophies:

  • Success doesn’t just happen…we must strategically map it out, execute it well and then tend it ongoingly.
  • Offer a custom-tailored solution…based on a powerful reputation…that succeeds without breaking the bank.

To do this, I’ll:

  • Get to know your business by living with it day in and day out until I have a deep understanding of your brand and its “WOW” factor.
  • Care about your business by always giving honest and candid feedback…even if that means extra work or losing the account!
  • Connect you to people and resources that can help you just because it’s the right thing to do…not because I get anything from it!

What Makes Me Different

Lot’s of companies say they’re great. And, many of them are! So, it’s only natural for you to ask…

Why should I with Ask The Marketer rather than someone else? What makes you different?

I don’t think that I have all the answers.

Frankly, knowing the answer isn’t enough. To be effective, I need to combine my expertise and with your knowledge of your business to create a custom solution.

I know that what works for Jack, probably won’t work for Jill. I understand that every company is unique and deserves a marketing solution that allows its uniqueness to shine.

And, unlike many others, I won’t discount your knowledge! I know that no-one knows your business better than you do and that, sometimes, it’s difficult having an outsider come in to changing things.

That’s why, no matter what I may recommend…you have the last word!

MY Agency Days

I started in the Agency world over 20 years ago…at OgilvyOne N.A., blessed with being mentored by the Chief Relationship Marketing Officer,

Moving up the ladder quickly, my training covered business development, operations and account management…all in service of creating and directing strategic marketing plans for Big Brands across multiple industries.

Have you heard of these brands? YES! They included IBM, HP (Hewlett Packard), Jaguar, Pfizer, J&J, GSK (GlaxoSmithKline), Sanofi-Aventis, Campell’s, Kroeger and Lacoste…to name a few!

It’s also where I earned my nickname. Why & How? Most of the accounts I was assigned were “broken” and looking to leave the Agency. It was my job to,,,

  • Figure out what was broken
  • Create a plan to fix it
  • Get the client on board with giving us one more chance
  • And finally, fix the problem

I did this so consistently that I became THE FIXER!

This also contributed to some of the awards my teams received!
