I'm Miao, a marketing and communications consultant based in Washington D.C. metro area.
Also a nature-lover, design-thinker, tech-geek and modern-art-follower.
My decade of communications experience ranges from branding, digital marketing, media relations, market research, message development, event management to advocacy campaigns.
I offer strategic communications, branding, digital marketing, stakeholder relations and advocacy counsel to non-profits, NGOs, social enterprises and startups.
My digital marketing work has covered targeted audiences and driven desired results for clients on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and targeted digital outlets at minimum costs. I know how to create egaging digital content with creative graphics. I’m also a certified Google Analytics and Google AdWords expert.
My media outreach work has appeared in international and national media outlets, including the Economist, Financial Times, Reuters, China Daily, the New York Times and the Washington Post.
I've worked as communications consultant for Environmental Defense Fund and International Fund for China’s Environment, and account manager for HAVAS. I also served as investor relations officer for a public-listed internet company and managed technology startup projects for an angel investment firm.
The advent of digital age has leveled the playing field of brand marketing and communications. Companies and organizations – large or small, established or new – share equal access to a plethora of communications tools, email, search engine, social media, etc.
A marketing and communications expert can help you optimize ROI by concentrating your marketing efforts on a relatively smaller but specific and well-defined segment of audiences. The same principle applies to a wide range of campaigns, whether the goal is to grow your customer base, raise money from donors, or engage with stakeholders.
