Amanda is a bootstrapping entrepreneur who thrives on helping businesses make connections, grow and see revenue from their social media accounts. She’s not boring. She’s not corporate. She has the ability to see big picture visions and tune into minute details in ongoing tactics and implementation. She is honest, real and raw in an industry that is filled with filters.
Prior to starting McLernon & Co., Amanda worked with Fortune 500 companies and premier advertising agencies as a digital media strategist to create meaningful and results-driven campaigns. Then she started McLernon & Co. in 2016 to focus exclusively on making her client’s dreams a reality with social media.
If you check out her ‘gram, you’ll see photos of her offline advocating for others to develop a healthy, sustainable relationship with social media and technology.
Outside of work you’ll often find her deeply involved with the Denver Community- volunteerism is a personal core value of hers and she is proud to support Junior Achievement Rocky Mountain and Reading Partners of Colorado on a frequent basis. She often takes art classes and learns new creative mediums, and is currently obsessed with spray paint. She brings this creative energy back into the agency, to help our clients get creative with their brands as well. She LOVES to live life offline and be social IRL.
They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but we’re thrilled to share that our Founder and CEO Amanda McLernon accepted an award as one of the Top 100 Marketing Influencers in the United States in June of 2021.
