Chief Engagement Officer
For the past ten years, Brenda has been embracing social media to help propel her personal and professional efforts and now through Meller Marketing, she helps people and businesses with marketing and social media, specializing in LinkedIn.
She first realized the power of social media when making a career change using LinkedIn at the height of Michigan’s downturn in 2008. She started sharing her knowledge of social media through workshops, webinars, presentations, and via blogs.
In 2017, her side hustle led to her dream job with the launch of Meller Marketing. In 2019, she set and met a personal stretch goal and rewarded herself with a promotion to Chief Engagement Officer.
Brenda’s approach has always been to present information in a “judgement-free” zone, where there are no bad questions, and to make sure every attendee gains new insights that can be put to use right away.
In addition to being self-taught across social media channels (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, Glassdoor, and more), Brenda has a solid marketing education. She earned a bachelor of science in business administration degree with a specialization in marketing communications from Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, and a dual MBA and master of science in marketing from Walsh College. She also earned her competent communicator (CC) and competent leader (CL) status in Toastmasters International, a public speaking organization.
In 2017, Brenda was named a MichBusiness Most Valuable Professional. She is a member of Inforum, Michigan’s largest professional women’s networking association, where she also leads the Troy networking group. She is also a member and serves on the board of Detroit Together Digital. Meller Marketing is a member of the Troy Chamber of Commerce, the Detroit Economic Club, and the Sterling Heights Regional Chamber.
Brenda is an enthusiastic speaker who loves engaging with audiences, both at conferences and corporate events. In 2019, she became a national speaker.
You can find Brenda Meller and Meller Marketing online on all the major social media channels. Someday soon, she will complete her next goal of writing a book on LinkedIn.Register
