When it comes to marketing, countless business owners in Central PA have entrusted their business growth to Magnolia Heights Marketing (MHM) and its owner, Michele Legge. Having just celebrated its 10th anniversary, the business is stronger than ever with Michele at the helm.
“MHM has always specialized in customized strategic marketing plans for small to mid-size businesses,” explains Michele. Part of that strategy involves being mindful of a business’s budget. “Magnolia Heights Marketing charges no retainer fee. All money goes directly to the businesses’ advertising.” Just recently the firm helped one of their long-time clients with the opening of a new location in Reston, Virginia. MHM did all of the research to ensure it was a viable option for the business as well as creating a complete marketing strategy. Of course, in today’s internet economy, digital marketing is essential. That’s why MHM also specializes in everything web-based. “Web development, social media, pay per click advertising…you name it. We have an incredible woman on board that is a Google Partner and is ranked 14th in the world in Google testing.”
With that web expertise, Michele is also beginning two new Internet-based businesses this year. Magnolia Mountain Jewelry, a web-based jewelry store is set to launch on August 1st. She is also starting a blog called Saving Money and Making Money that will go live on October 1st.
But it’s not just commerce that drives Michele, who credits her parents with instilling a strong love of learning and dedication to hard work. Michele is also an active member of the community. As a long-time member of the Colonial Park Rotary, she was the first female president of the club. This year she is finishing up her term as Assistant District Governor, she sits on the club’s board and sits on two committees. Michele also sits on the Greek Alumni Board at Shippensburg University and will start her four-year term on the Alumni Board at Shippensburg this month.
