2020 has proven to be quite an ordeal for many businesses, both big and small, and business owners are sincerely hoping that 2021 will be a year of comebacks. As many companies from different industries were forced to cease operations due to the effects of the pandemic, there are still those who intend to rise up again and revive their operations. To help these businesses with their publicity efforts, The Official Maleeka Group, LLC, a thriving and Black-owned PR Agency in Atlanta, is introducing the Social Proof Success Live Event, a virtual gathering of brilliant business professionals designed to empower small businesses as they start anew.
The Official Maleeka Group founder, Maleeka Hollaway, believes that empowering small business owners to make strategic decisions is one strong way to guarantee that their efforts will not go to waste. Beginning again after suffering the grave effects of a pandemic is not a walk in the park, but Maleeka is confident that with the right tools, more and more business owners will be motivated to start all over again and consider undertaking promotional initiatives.
“I decided to host this virtual conference because we need to move forward from 2020 and look ahead to show up and create a plan for success for our business in 2021. I want this conference to be an opportunity for business-minded professionals to learn from the top exactly what they need to do to garner media attention for their businesses and to see a new level of success in the new year,” Maleeka Hollaway explains.
The two-day live virtual event is scheduled to happen on January 15 and 16, 2021, at 10 AM. Various guest speakers will be involved in the event, carefully picked by Maleeka and her team to guarantee that attendees get the value they deserve. The line up of impressive guests includes: Josh Ellis, the editor-in-chief of Success Magazine, Jason Feifer, editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur Magazine, and Maleeka herself, who is an award-winning publicist, owner of The Official Maleeka Group, and founder of Social Proof Success.
Josh and Jason are expected to speak about how to manage brands for visibility, how to gain media attention and strategies on how to play the media success game. Aside from the above-mentioned guest speakers, the conference will also include insights from Adrienne Dorison, co-founder of Run Like Clockwork, in partnership with Mike Michalowiz. Lamar Tyler of Tyler New Media is also expected to make an appearance alongside Clinton Senkow from Influencive, and Candace LedBetter of CNBetter Media, among others.
“I built the Social Proof Success brand because there are so many people who are missing critical steps to growing their brand influence and equity. I wanted to bring actionable PR DIY strategies and tactics to the masses to support those who don’t have large budgets to outsource the need,” Maleeka reveals.
As a well-respected publicist who is also known as an authority in the PR industry, Maleeka has been instrumental in influencing over 25 major brands around the country. Her clients were successfully published in various publications, including MSN, Entrepreneur, Forbes, Addicted 2 Success, The Good Men Project, Essence, Black Enterprise, and Business Insider, to mention a few.
As Maleeka Hollaway adds value to the efforts of small business owners as they slowly attempt to rebuild their businesses, her efforts will undeniably transform the way entrepreneurs brave the new season ahead of them. Making such a phenomenal impact on the lives of entrepreneurs will go a long way for them, and Maleeka will be remembered for her instrumental contribution to the industry.
