Building Brands Worthy of Going Viral®


It’s time that you become the industry leader that you know you are. It’s time you stop wasting time and money on social media and start producing reliable and consistent results.

Meet Mel DePaoli, MBA

I work with businesses to build their brand online and off. I transform the way B2B brands communicate with their target audiences and help them better leverage and spend less time on social media.

My clients describe me as edgy, flexible, fun to work with, and engaging. They have won awards like “Best Place to Work” and “Most Innovative” and have been featured in national magazines as a result of our work together.

I do it better than anyone else in the world because of my proven process of mastering the science of communicating for technology and the art of communicating with people.

I have a deep understanding of social behavior, what creates conversions, and SEO.

We specialize in working with high growth influencers, professional service providers, technology companies, and big brands.

Our expertise is the psychology behind brand-building and customer experience whether that is through our fully managed private client work, our coaching sessions, our intensive training or keynote speaking.

Enthusiasm. Energy. Attitude.
