Meloney Hall, Owner, Big Uptick Social Marketing, LLC

I opened Big Uptick Social Marketing in July 2013. In less than a year in May 2014, I made the company an LLC. It was a big leap of faith for me, and right away, I noticed that my business inquiries increased. It was so wonderful to experience those moments!

I am very grateful to Jerry Smith, one of the Dayton SCORE Mentors and business counselors, who matched up one of his clients with my skills that I could provide through Big Uptick Social Marketing, LLC. Jerry is a masterful match-making ambassador, as his core mission is to help small businesses all around our Dayton area.
