Margaret Reardon Marketing

Digital Age Approach = Transformational Result

About Me


About  Me
I started my freelance marketing business in 2007 as a side to my "day job".
That job brought in the proverbial steady paycheck but it was not a great place for my joy.
Still, in that context, programming planning, connecting with people, getting the word out on events I curated, and the rush of it all coming together kept me going.
That made me decide to start offering creative people, small businesses and entrepreneurs low cost marketing services. Soon I was also helping with branding, event planning and fundraisers for all sorts of good causes.
Eventually, in 2016, I took the leap and set out on my own.
Over the years I have had many successful experiences and learned a lot along the way.
Also, over those years, with the growth of technology, incredibly cost effective opportunities have presented themselves in terms of marketing and promotion.
All has been well.

Then COVID-19 hit.  In the current environment digital outreach and virtual events are even more crucial to staying connected and relevant. 

Let ME help YOU navigate this crazy time in the following ways.

  • Getting the word out on your organization, event, performance or project.
  • Creating or enhancing  your  social media presence.
  • Connecting you with your customers or followers through e- newsletters.
  • Creating virtual events.
  • Direct you toward funding sources and income generating ideas.
  • Guide you through opportunities for partnership and cross promotional opportunities.
  •  Transforming your organization's profile and operations with state of the art best practices.

My focus is currently on non profit 501(c) 3 organizations but all inquiries are welcome.

CREDENTIALS
 I have over 25 years of experience creating innovative programming, crafting powerful marketing strategies, designing exciting events and making community connections that have enhanced the profiles of a variety of organizations.  I have also completed a few degree programs over the years.

Services


MARKETING

I can help with digital and traditional forms of marketing. I know how to spread the word in ways you may not know exist. And I have media contacts.

BRANDING

A consistent "look" is important to an organization's success. That means visually as well as your ongoing public perception. I can help you refine your current brand or help craft a new one.

FUNDRAISING

I constantly monitor the fundraising climate to be current on cutting edge ideas that I will share with you. I can also assist with grant research and writing.

VIRTUAL EVENTS

Let me show you how to take advantage of the worldwide reach of virtual events on platforms such as Zoom, Facebook Live, Google Meet and YouTube. Now is the time to learn because virtual will be here to stay even after the world opens up again.

NON PROFIT MANAGEMENT

Governance by a strong Board, clear fundraising expectations, good fiscal stewardship and thoughtful adherence to the mission are crucial and ethically important to success, credibility and sustainability. If you agree let's connect.
