We help busy business owners harness the power of online and “Give to Get” marketing for greater brand awareness, lead generation and, of course, increased revenue.
“Also called “Inbound Marketing”, give to get marketing is marketing that your customers love. In fact, they will thank you for marketing to them and ask for more! Would your business benefit from more online leads? “Give to get” may be just what you need! The articles and free business marketing resources on this site can help you get started. Of course, we are always happy to take a look at what you are doing and suggest simple changes you can make to get more from your online marketing.
An LLC registered in Texas (with one partner in North Carolina and team members all over), we started out in 2010 with the goal of bringing blogging and social media to small businesses. It didn’t take long to realize that business owners need more – and they need it to be affordable.
With full-fledged inbound marketing solutions including social media support, blogging, email and website redesigns, we are in this to help our customers succeed. We don’t want to just finish your project and move on – we want to be your marketing partner.
From Social Media to Complete Inbound Marketing
Social Media is just one piece of the online marketing pie. Our experience as a HubSpot partner agency means that we can use social media (including blogging) along with email campaigns, SEO, lead-generation, landing pages, and Pay Per Click advertising, to help you create marketing your customers will love. Imagine that – marketing that people will THANK you for! We also have many years’ of experience in website design and usability planning. Because of what we’ve noticed in our customers’ analytics, we are now offering mobile sites, and any new sites are made to be completely responsive – easy to read and navigate on any device.
I would recommend Scalable Social Media to any business looking for an affordable
way to boost sales and a sense of community through social media.

Partner and Strategist Alisa Meredith
Proponent of shiny new web toys, hawker of promotional plans, Alisa works with her two poodle mixes, Pepe and Spike (“Spi-kay”), who have her very well trained (eat your heart out, Dog Whisperer). Recently relocated to Wilmington, North Carolina, she looks forward to carving out some time for body surfing at Wrightsville Beach!
A childhood love affair with a Texas Instruments TI-99 in 1983 put her on the path that would lead to a career in website development by 2000. She started with social media marketing in 2010 and inbound, or “give to get” marketing in 2011.
A giant (no pun intended, but she IS 6′ tall) fan of public radio (the sweet strains of Carl Kassell makes for the background music of many a great Scalable idea), she really HATES sales, but loves helping businesses pinpoint their business goals and build a path to reaching them. This Summer she started organizing the Social Media Club in Wilmington and speaking on the subject of Pinterest to local business owners.
Community Manager Abby Currier
When Abby was born, tv was still in black and white and you had to get up to change the channels (all 3). So, hoots and tweets only happened in the trees during her childhood! A real “New England-ah”, Abby learned her first communication trick the hard way when she found out that the rest of the country actually pronounced “r” at the end of words requiring it! A sense of humor and the good company of her furry friends has always helped Abby through life’s ups and downs. You’ll be surprised at how much fun it can actually be to read about bugs when Abby is on the case! See a blog that Abby manages.
Community Manager Carolyn Sieg
Carolyn’s ability to organize (a BIG “thank you” from Alisa for that one) and her passion to help your business succeed are contagious. Her experience raising a disabled son, caregiving for a man with ALS and having a Mom with Alzheimer’s mean that she can relate to almost anyone’s caregiver stress! When not collecting local happenings from her account’s local contacts, posting to blogs, Facebook, or Twitter, or conducting new customer training, you might find Carolyn reading a book while surrounded by approximately 175 pounds of Chocolate Lab (Chachee and the aptly named Brawny). Slimy tennis balls are apparently the perfect end to the day! See a blog that Carolyn Manages.
| Community Manager Marissa SpencerCutting her social media teeth on Classmates.com, Bebo and MySpace before landing on Facebook, Marissa has been a computer addict for years and, being from Maine, thinks social media is “wicked” fun!Her first job was in an assisted living facility where she enjoyed getting to know the residents and later accompanying them on outings and assisting with fun activities. She enjoys baking and sharing her gorgeous treats with elderly neighbors.When not chasing son Isaac, Marissa enjoys outdoor activities such as boating and swimming (in New Hampshire?). On occasion, her Facebook status reveals that she gets up waaaay too early to go for a hike. You go, girl!Being the adventurous type, Marissa once packed up only what would fit in her car and moved to Utah for two years – never even having been to that part of the country! Her latest adventures include blogging, Facebook updating and having a great time interacting with her customers.See a blog that Marissa Manages.

Writer & Editor Lisa Mayo
Lisa discovered a passion for reading and language in elementary school, and has not taken her nose out of the books since! For the past seven years she has worked as a standardized test tutor, helping students maximize their scores on exams such as the SAT and GRE, and has contributed to a number of books in the field. While her college education has been in physics, she has never forgotten her love of the finely crafted sentence, and can frequently be found immersed in a novel or tapping away on her computer keyboard as she writes her latest blog posting.
When Lisa is not reading, writing, editing or teaching, she enjoys traveling. So far, she has visited nine countries, and is looking forward to traveling to more! She dreams of someday living in Europe.
Writer Gretchen Halverson
Gretchen Halverson was raised on a farm along the banks of the Ohio River. Two weeks after she graduated high school, she earned an associate degree in business. Since then, she has spent six years as a legal assistant, has owned and operated an internet cafe and a retail store, and now is in her seventh year as a wedding photographer.
She loves to cook for a crowd, photograph people, get lost in the pages of Russian literature, and firmly believes that if she tries hard enough, she can do just about anything. She has been to the top of the Eiffel Tower and can bake the perfect pie crust, but she still hasn’t learned to swim.
