In businesses across the country, many firms struggle with how to engage with customers, audiences, and different generations using the myriad forms of social media available. Whether it is Facebook “likes,” Instagram influencers, Tiktok videos, or anything else, using social media effectively can be confounding.

Hopeworks, like many other firms, faces the same struggles. Unlike many other firms, Hopeworks has found a fantastic solution -- right in our own Web Department. Hopeworks has hired Melendez Marketing -- a startup digital marketing agency run by one of Hopeworks web interns, Azaris Melendez.

“From the first pitch presentation to the scope of work, I knew that Melendez Marketing was a great choice” shares Dan Rhoton, Hopeworks Executive Director. “Azaris was able to present ideas and approaches for social media engagement and interaction that we simply had not thought of. In addition, his presentation and work samples were top-notch, clearly on par with his peers in the industry!”

Hopeworks is looking forward to a season of greater engagement, creativity, and results in our social media, all thanks to Azaris Melendez -- Hopeworks youth, web intern, and CEO of Melendez Marketing!
