INSPIRATION: “Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Melissa Paul joined Weybridge demonstrating an ability to convey brand messaging with exceptional clarity through her consummate copywriting skills. Her many talents unfolded from there, with Melissa now leading Social Media, and contributing her communications expertise across consumer touch points from special events to food and lifestyle photography. Her niche is in the luxury wedding, culinary and hospitality sectors, specifically, working behind-the-scenes to develop entertaining content for blogs and micro blogs, as well as managing a whole array of marketing projects that every company seems to need at one time or another.
At Weybridge, Melissa partners with clients to articulate their brand positioning and stand out in the marketplace. She also provides online marketing counsel, creating a powerful blog content strategy and social media management and training. Melissa also frequently provides solid planning and on-site management assistance to clients executing B2B and B2C special events.
