Media Matchmakers - Build Relationships and Authority with Public Relations

Public Relations (PR) is about reaching and influencing every audience that is relevant to your organization, and that goes far beyond traditional media relations. When your unique story is shared with your target audience, you start creating connections more valuable than mere impressions.

Attend this seminar to gain knowledge on public relations topics including:

  • Blogger Relations
  • Community Relations
  • Speaking Engagements
  • Social media relations (bloggers, forum moderators, influentials)
  • Traditional media relations (TV, radio, print)
This seminar will be presented by Cindy Kelly.
 Cindy is Media Fusion’s President & CEO. With over 15 years experience in technology, Cindy marries her love for technology and digital marketing with traditional and digital public relations. She has the talent of weaving artistic design and compelling stories with visionary internet marketing tactics; successfully demonstrating that one does not have to sacrifice appearance for search engine visibility and utility.

Since the late 1980’s after taking her first computer programming class, Cindy has designed, coded and optimized hundreds of websites and managed and implemented a wide variety of online marketing campaigns.

In 2005, she founded The Web Decorators, a Tampa-based internet marketing company focused on generating online opportunities to Tampa Bay area businesses. In 2012, the website design company acquired a public relations / communications agency, making it a powerhouse in Tampa Bay for publicity and online marketing, known as Media Fusion.

Media Fusion is consistently expanding and integrating their service offerings in the areas of search, mobile, social, content, analytics, web, PR, digital advertising, and email marketing.
