The award-winning PR coach has kicked the company into another gear by developing a full selection of social media services for authors, organizations and small businesses.
“I want to position my clients to superstar success – like a rock star! The way to help them achieve major visibility, more credibility and high marketability is to leverage the internet and ‘crush it’ with social media marketing,” said Perry. “We have kicked it up a notch – and ready to rock and roll.”
Perry and her virtual team at Ministry Marketing Solutions Inc. work with Sports & Entertainment Executives, like Max Siegel and business organizations like Michigan Minority Supplier Development and Detroit Black Expo plus coaches scores of best-selling authors.
She is often called on to speak at conferences on marketing and social media from as far as San Juan, Puerto Rico to Houston. This October she will be one of the panelists at prestigious Blogalious Conference at the Ritz Carlton in Miami.
One can Google Pam Perry and find online comments from clients raving about her creativity and connectivity. “Pam is a wonderful publicist! She worked her socks off to promote my book: How Strong Women Pray. She knows the book industry, does creative things, and helps you to leverage your own contacts and assets. She also is on the cutting edge of using the internet to get people talking about you and your book,” said author Bonnie St. John.
The MMS client was featured in Essence, Ebony and in O Magazine as well as premiere online media publications and on many broadcast stations.
The Detroit Free Press called Perry "a marketing whiz on an almost immortal mission." Publishers Weekly called her a "PR Guru." She is also an Emmy award-winning TV producer and internet radio host of Chocolate Pages where she has interviewed celebrities like Rev. Run, Yolanda Adams, Kirk Franklin and Demond Wilson.
Her passion for networking and social media has led her to also produce and host two weekly online business shows: Diverse Business and Synergy Energy on Blogtalk radio. And she pens social media columns for Gospel Today and the Detroit Nonprofit Examiner.com and plus publishes numerous blogs and ezines on internet marketing.
Perry’s public relations firm began to “rebrand” about five years ago when she started her first blog. Seeing the power in Web 2.0 technology, she now has personal "PR 2.0" network of tens of thousands of followers on Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Linkedin and Youtube.
This allows her to get the messages out about clients quickly, easily and more inexpensively than traditional media methods. “Brand building is about being consistent and connecting with the right audience often – social media marketing allows this and we have been able to build powerful brand recognition for clients,” said Perry.
The Ministry Marketing Solutions Inc. team provides clients with overall branding which includes blog site development, email marketing, article marketing, online videos, podcasting, social media management, PR coaching, virtual assistance, keyword research and other traffic building techniques.
Perry understands how to build powerful brands and teaches the online secrets to her customers’ in short easy sessions that would normally take months to learn. “Simplicity is the key, said Perry. “As a baby-boomer, I know that the internet can be scary because it changes so rapidly– but when I teach clients – I make it fun – and they learn to build their own online networks to reach their marketing results.”
