“Melodie was hired as the featured speaker on Social Media at our  San Diego E-Commerce Summit. Speaking to an audience of sales & marketing executives from local hotels, attractions and restaurants, Melodie was able to pass along some great information and guidance to our members. Melodie’s information was up-to-date and relevant to the group she was presenting to. She showed her mastery of the subject matter by handling questions from attendees with differing skill and knowledge levels. Even attendees who have been doing Social Media for years came out of her sessions with a few new tricks to try. I’ve heard nothing but good reviews of her sessions from our members and hope that we can utilize Melodie’s services again in the future!” ~Benjamin Eastman, Travel Trade Development Manager at San Diego Convention & Visitor’s Bureau

Thank you Melodie for a great class. Your shared knowledge will not go unused. ~Shawn Reed, Student- Platt College San Diego

“I was excited to attend the Digital Media Dinner last month in San Diego, California which Melodie Tao hosted. The event focused on how businesses both large and small could strengthen their company’s presence across various social networks, review sites, in addition to collective buying sites such as Groupon. The passion and positive attitude that Melodie Tao exudes when speaking about social media invigorates everyone that attends her workshops. She has a strong grasp and understanding of social media best practices and is able to articulate strategies and tactics efficiently that attendees could implement right away. If you’re looking to broaden your understanding of social media and its impact on your bottom line, I recommend attending any of Melodie Tao’s workshops.” ~Stephanie Garcia, Sr. Social Media Strategist- Geary Interactive 

“I have always relied on ‘word of mouth’ to get new clients. I never thought I would need to use social media and other integrated marketing strategies. Melodie completely changed my perspective and taught me the importance of creating a compelling brand and strategic marketing strategy. Due to the nature of my business, I have a lot of rules and regulations to follow when it comes to marketing. Melodie has done an amazing job working with me despite corporate restrictions on what I’m allowed to post online. Melodie’s goal has been to help me get more clients and she has done just that. Over 50% of my new clients this past year are attributed to Melodie’s marketing efforts.” ~ Brian Kurlan, CPA and Financial Advisor- Wedbush Securities  

“I contracted with Melodie Tao to create two senior-level college courses on Social Media Campaign Plans and Social Media Campaign Creative at National University. She was the subject-matter expert — and is she ever! Melodie is extremely knowledgeable — really expert at every aspect of this new, burgeoning field. I am a senior professor in Communication, and I learned a great deal from Melodie. I know my students did as well. 

In addition to her tremendous expertise, she is reliable, thorough, and straightforward. She does what she says she will do, on time, and at the price she said she would do it. (As anyone who relies on vendors knows, this means you will hire this person again and again — it is a difficult combination to find.) 

Personally, I like and admire Melodie Tao. She is pleasant and businesslike to work with, a cooperative and willing spirit. I am pleased to recommend her.” ~ Dr. Joan Van Tassel, Professor of Strategic Communications- National University

“Melodie is an energetic individual who brings substance over flash to whatever she is doing (unless flash is needed). She is well thought out and very organized. She is an excellent teacher that is both knowledgeable and patient. I have attended events that Melodie has put on and they have been the best run and most organized events. Melodie’s social media expertise combined with her enthusiasm and passion for the medium is unmatched.” ~Andy Morales, CoFounder, Writer, Community Manager, and Social Media Marketer for MattersofGrey.com

“I had the pleasure of taking a Strategic Marketing class with Professor Tao at National University. She is very energetic, enthusiastic, and can truly engage her students. She knows the material well, and works diligently with all of her students to ensure their success. I really enjoyed the class format, because the class builds on each week by carrying the same project throughout the different stages of developing a strategic marketing plan in today’s media where blogging, social media and content are extremely important. The course material that I learned is relevant, and very useful. Professor Tao has high expectations of her students, yet she recognizes students that are working hard, and is truly interested in all students participating and succeeding in her class. She is timely with her students, and extremely responsive. I will definitely be using and applying what I learned in her class regarding strategic marketing and social media.”  ~Sandra Van Harken- Sales and Marketing Professional
