Cecelia Mecca iRetreat Conference

“It was an absolute pleasure having you at iRetreat. It was honestly one of the BEST sessions we've personally attended; I learned so much about Instagram to take-away and implement immediately, and know other attendees did as well.”

Mallory Whitfield being interviewed on SiriusFM radio during New Orleans Entrepreneur Week  2016

Hi! My name is Mallory Whitfield.

​​I believe in supporting small businesses, independent designers & artists, and people & organizations who are working to make the world a better place. I believe that one person can make a difference and that everyone can be that person. I love helping small businesses grow and inspiring #BadassCreatives to dream and do bigger.

I started blogging in 2001 and I began running my own business and selling at craft shows in 2004. I've also run my own e-commerce store in the past, so I’ve been on both sides of the fence as a handmade, indie biz owner. By day, I work at one of the top digital marketing agencies in New Orleans, FSC Interactive. I am passionate about teaching and empowering other creative business owners.

I can provide in-depth training & strategy on blogging, SEO (search engine optimization), WordPress, affiliate marketing, social media marketing (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Pinterest), email marketing, personal branding in a digital world and more. I am available for speaking engagements at your next conference or workshop.​ Contact me!

“Whoah, DIY SEO Bootcamp was informative! My website is relatively new, but I'm always looking to tweak, improve, and generally make things better for all of you looking at my work. If the next two sessions with Mallory Whitfield are just as informative, get ready for some great changes (and I might need another notebook!)!”
