I’m Melanie Taljaard and for 23 years now I’ve been using my marketing skills to help business leaders in the service sector achieve real, measurable results.
I cut my teeth in traditional advertising agencies and then expanded that experience by working client side for several years. The combination of those positions means I understand what my own clients are going through: agencies tend to demand huge budgets and can’t always prove their effectiveness; clients are accountable for every dollar spent and need to demonstrate results.
When I started More in Store in 2009, my goal was to prove that marketing could make a real, bottom-line difference.
That’s the main reason I became a certified HubSpot partner in 2012: I saw the decline of traditional, outbound marketing and was more than impressed with inbound. In a word, inbound WORKS.
Today I’m producing those results for my clients, which include private academic institutions, health-care businesses, startups, and more.
I hold a PR degree from Mount Saint Vincent University and a MBA from Saint Mary’s University. But I never stop learning new ways to help my clients succeed. Recent courses and workshops include:
I work with many professional organizations to support business leaders and up-and-comers.
I love to travel with my family to ski or hit the beach. Some favourite places include France, where I went to school for a year (yes, I’m bilingual), and South Africa, where my husband’s family lives.
Now that you know a bit about me, I’d like to learn more about you, your business, and your goals. Let’s chat. I’m always up for a coffee or a phone call. There’s no risk, no obligation.
