By far, the majority of Melody's writing experience is in marketing. Melody's first official marketing job was with a small, e-publishing company called Entranced Publishing. There she helped the marketing director to come up with strategies to promote authors and their upcoming books.
In Melody's Public Relations class, she helped a local non-profit called The Christi Anderson Rack Pack foundation come up with a business plan to help them reach out to breast cancer patients that would greatly benefit from the Rack Pack's assistance. She helped them deal with legal issues about patient health care practices and still reach out to those in need.
The following summer, Melody interned at a local dance company and assisted their marketing director with gearing up for the company's 50th anniversary. She assembled a social media plan that detailed best practices for reaching out to new audiences.
By far, the biggest influence on Melody's writing ability concerning marketing came from her work with Logique. A local software consulting firm, Logique faced many challenges in reaching out to clients at all, let alone finding clients that fit well with their vision. By creating and implementing marketing strategies, Melody helped Logique to build a client base and become a contender in the local software consulting world.
