Media Relations & Social Media Strategist & ePublisher

I have a passion for media, communications, social media and electronic publishing. I have been publishing and marketing one thing or another, either print or online, for the past thirty years. My flagship publication, www.mediamag.ca was first published in print in 2002 and then published exclusively online in 2003, making it one of the first online magazines in Alberta. I also publish mediamag ezine, one of the first email newsletters in Alberta. In January 2011, mediainalberta.ca was launched with the Media in Alberta, the largest, most comprehensive and current directory of reporters, editors, show hosts and news producers in Alberta. When I am not working on my own projects, I work on client projects. In addition to publishing more than forty websites for myself or for nonprofit organizations, I have given media relations and social media training and consulting to more than 350 communications professionals in Alberta over the past ten years. In 2012, I was nominated for a YWCA Woman of Distinction Award for my work in this area. If you want to know more about me see: marilynjones.ca.
