Keeping it fresh.

I provide a full-service partnership in content creation, social media strategy, management, and more. With industry experience and a personalized human touch, my team of industry colleagues implement a customized digital marketing and social media plan optimized to convert leads, engage customers, and enhance your online brand.  

I've been at the forefront of online marketing trends since 2008. Some of my collaborators (including myself) were on social media before it was cool to be on social media (remember Myspace?!). We excel in the social space and would love the opportunity to work for your business.

The key values here are trust and professionalism, and I focus on forward-thinking and creative campaigns. From virtual scavenger hunts to drive traffic to key locations (online or real-life) to traditional digital marketing approaches, I continually conceptualize and work hard to deliver results.

Hi, I'm Melanie!

I'm Melanie Rose Merritt, the founder and owner of Media Melanie, and a general media maven. I grew up in Suburban Massachusetts (go Sox!), got my Communications degree (cum laude) in 2002, and moved to San Diego a month later. After working as a Media Traffic Manager and Production Manager in TV advertising, I transitioned to my own business where I could spread my creative wings in all things media. And I have! I dove straight into social media consulting in 2008 after earning a "Media & Marketing Specialist" certificate, and have been enjoying it ever since.

In the freelance production world, I started out as a production assistant and quickly rose to coordinator, production manager, casting associate, unit production manager, and producer. Projects I've worked on include those for web, television, and film. I also stage manage live sports broadcasts for Bally Sports San Diego, primarily for Padres games (Go Slam Diego!).

I also produce a weekly podcast, the Beverly Hills 90210 Show and co-host its spin-off, 9-OH! News and started doing virtual scavenger hunts for pop culture.

Along with those roles, I also serve as Recording Secretary on the executive board for the broadcast sports entertainment union, IATSE 795. I've served on a school board and a school foundation board. Community matters! I'm a HUGE dog person and encourage everyone to #AdoptDontShop.

When I'm not immersed in the media world, I enjoy live music, reading, watching my favorite TV shows, cheering on the sidelines of little league games, and spending time in the San Diego sunshine with my family and adorable dog. Check out my little passion project, @GramtheLove!

The Process

I take a creative, analytics-driven approach. I don't offer the same plan for every client, because every business, its budget, and needs are different. Instead, I take a customized approach.

I begin with a free initial consultation to determine where your business is today. From there, we'll brainstorm potential social media, digital marketing, website, lead generation, and marketing strategies, customized to you and your needs.  

We'll then work together to create a plan that will be the most beneficial for your budget, timeline, and goals. Then, I start strategizing and implementing - while you sit back and focus on what you do best--running your business.

Long story short...

I deliver what I promise and look forward to creating a customized package to meet the needs of and exceed expectations for your business. Thank you for giving me a look!
