Personal Quote
The very nature of food is social, sharing with friends, family, lovers, even strangers. To ignore Social Media as a business owner in the food industry is like cooking without salt or acid or fat.
Modern in approach, this innovative & intuitive Social Media Geek loves talking to strangers. A writer. An entrepreneur. A foodie. She’s totally influential in ‘Bacon’. At least, that’s what Klout claims.

In 15 years of marketing, Michele J Martin has curated a diverse set of skills; from Inbound & Content, classic Outbound, to more radical broad-minded buzz tactics. Her unique method of “in the trenches” ideation has provided “out of the box” solutions to the many industries she has worked within; tech, architecture, food, agricultural, pet and e-commerce.

An early user of social community sites in the 1990′s, this Boston, Massachusetts based marketer began creating content and studying how to best engage and build a community of active listeners before there was a term for it. In the mid 2000′s she founded a sustainably minded e-pet store with an emphasis on holistic health and North American made products. Acting as the company’s CMO, her marketing skills were able to attract both local and national attention. Animal Fair Magazine reached out in 2009 and interviewed her on the benefits of “Real Food Diets” for pets. In 2010 Entrepreneur Magazine named her e-store’s local service business, a canine fitness business with a holistic approach, one of 2010′s Hottest Business Ideas. Upon closing her retail operations, the transition into Social Strategist was a natural one. Yet, for a girl who made Chicken Kiev at 11, many thought Chef was the clear first choice for a career.

From her start in the family catering business, to her work in bistros, hotels and fine dining; 25 years of various front & back of house industry roles & a culinary school close call, she’s embraced the madness of the food industry for much of her life. Her passion for the art of culinary creation has kept her coming back into the kitchens or out onto the dining rooms of restaurants all over the US. Eventually she hopes to settle into a kitchen again, but that of a Mid Century designed Bed & Breakfast with some goats, some dogs, and maybe a barn cat. Until then, she is comfortable cooking for friends at home and experiencing her favorite restaurants around the country from a seat in their dining room.

The epiphany to combine her two loves, Social & Food, came over Seared Tuna Tacos at Ole in Inman Square. The mezcal might be to blame.

Located in Boston, Massachusetts. Available for consulting arrangements in Boston or Nationwide.

The Voodoo That She Do:

Social Media Audits. Short-Range / Long-Range Strategic Planning. Short-Term Community Management. Social Network Builds. Staff Training. Guest Blogging. Social Network Builds. Social Media Promotions. Promotional Events. Food & Product Photography. Digital & Print Content. ROI & Analytics Reporting.

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
