About Meaghan Edelstein (From her LinkedIn Profile)
Currently accepting new clients.
I provide either short-term or long-term digital marketing consulting and execution. I am a sole practitioner and all work is completed by yours truly. I do not outsource any work.
For the past 12 years, I've immersed myself in social media. In 2007, I began documenting my personal battle with cancer via my blog, I Kicked Cancer’s Ass. Within 6 months of my first post, I founded the nonprofit organization, Spirit Jump, a grassroots nonprofit organization. Through the strategic use of social media, I was able to reach thousands of cancer fighters, survivors & supporters.
Through invaluable experience gained from running a highly successful blog & nonprofit, my social media passions continued to grow. I took on various freelance & in-house marketing jobs until I was hired as to create and produce social media focused conferences for Global Strategic Management Institute. Over the course of two years, I was responsible for producing over 17 highly successful executive level summits. In addition, I was the Vice President of Social Media for GSMI overseeing all social media marketing efforts including being the senior editor for the GSMI Social Media Strategies Summit blog. I also had the privilege of facilitating Social Axcess 25, GSMI’s executive working group.
In an effort to grow my skill set I began my freelance journey, crafting, implementing, maintaining & growing social communities, campaigns & contest for a variety of organizations from small businesses to publicly traded companies. My success in social media marketing has been nationally recognized & as a result, my opinions & insights have been featured in numerous publications including Mashable, Social Media Examiner & Inc.
I am also a licensed attorney in the state of Florida.
