I <3 my clients

Melissa and I have had a long-standing relationship. First, she was my publicist, landing me major press in Health Magazine, MSNBC, Fox Business News and more. Then one day over coffee, we began talking about how to turn those PR opportunities into increased revenue for my businesses. I was surprised how business-smart this PR pro was… so much so that I actually hired her for business coaching. Her specialty is how to turn visibility into cash. The result? Projects that brought six figures within two months of coaching. They say that behind every successful woman, there’s a man. Well, that’s true for me, but I have to add that behind my success is Melissa Cassera, too!
Everything Melissa Cassera produces is just flawless.

Just got off the phone with Melissa Cassera! Genius…brilliance at it’s best. Super ideas for my new website launch…this one’s for good! If you need clarity from someone who gets it, book a session with Melissa!
Melissa is nothing short of a PR Genius. By taking her course I was equipped to pitch like a pro and landed on Inc, Forbes, Huffington Post and am in correspondence with not only a USA Today writer, but a freelance writer for Oprah Magazine! Melissa is the real deal because she not only is full of PR knowledge but she is always there to answer your questions. I am a proud Anonymous to A-List Alum and I couldn’t recommend it more!

Before taking Anonymous to A-List, I honestly thought it would be harder to get media attention. That I had to be “someone.” But the truth is…you just have to have the guts to put yourself out there. And you have to use Melissa’s scripts. They are amazing and super easy to make your own. Since completing Anonymous to A-List, I no longer have any fear around putting myself out there. The worst thing people can say is NO. And even though they may say no, they now know who you are forever. If you want to get yourself out there and create buzz, you MUST take this class. Melissa offers easy to implement, step-by-step instructions to make you a superstar!!!

Melissa Cassera is unlike any business + PR coach I’ve ever encountered. When I started coaching with Melissa, I was struggling to raise my visibility and to define my own unique brand. By working with Melissa, in a very short timeframe I was able to score a feature in my all-time favorite magazine, Whole Living, and get interviewed for other publications as well. Our rebranding efforts have also resulted in a dramatic shift in my business model to bring in additional revenue streams. She helped me to craft pitches to position myself as a professional speaker, which led to my booking weekly events 4 months out. Melissa can help you create magic in your business. I would call her unique approach to coaching as bewitching. She captivates you into taking some serious action in your business that makes dreams come true!

Working with Melissa Cassera has been a terrific experience. When I started out I didn’t know how to get the word out about my business and my internet radio show, Women Entrepreneurs – The Secrets of Success. I was a novice regarding promoting myself and felt uncomfortable putting myself out there. Now with Melissa’s help I’ve been quoted in major publications, have been interviewed on a national news program and have built an impressive media resume. When you start out in business you try to do it all yourself, but there’s a point where you have to call in the experts if you want to take things to the next level. This is why I recommend working with Melissa. She’s obviously an expert at what she does and she manages to make it fun as well. I have the platform I have today because of Melissa’s hard work.

As a news anchor, I get a ton of pitches every day. Some are good, but most are not. I can honestly say that every idea Melissa has ever pitched to me I’ve loved! She truly “gets” TV. She’s been on-camera and behind the scenes, so she knows exactly what we’re looking for, and she knows how to pitch it. Her ideas are creative, interesting, and fun, and they always appeal to a wide range of viewers. She makes my job, and filling the sometimes intimidating guest calendar, a piece of cake!

Melissa is the 2nd voice of She’s Got Papers. An integral part of my team, she is alert and in tune to all of the opportunities that we need to make use of for the most positive exposure. As any small business owner knows it is very difficult to give over control of any part of your venture to another person. I can count on Melissa to convey the values of my brand effortlessly. Her press releases and pitches are always supremely well written and her ability to spin a story is one of her greatest strengths. I’m very fortunate to have her represent me.

It may sound silly, but my approach to finding a publicist came very close to my process for finding a great hair stylist – find someone with great hair and ask, “who do you use?!” All kidding aside, I found Melissa because she was the PR-brain behind all the great press going to Angela Jia Kim of Savor the Success. I saw all the great advice Melissa was giving the Savor community and knew that I wanted to work with her. Words cannot fully describe how awesome it is to work with Melissa. She is a true professional who knows what she’s doing and refreshingly exceeds your expectations over and over again. During a 6-month campaign she was able to media train me for live TV, radio and print interviews while instilling great confidence in me when speaking about my company, Cooking for the Clueless. Thanks to Melissa, we secured several television, print and web coverage and aside from the great press, many times she went above and beyond the call of duty in helping us prepare to pitch Cooking for the Clueless as a show! We continue to get great press because of her hard work. My partner and I have said over and over and still agree, “Melissa has been our best investment yet!”

When I had to write my bio for my company’s website and press kit I was stuck. I had always thought I was a pretty good writer but found I was completely unable to write about myself! Even though funds are limited, I decided to invest in having a professional write my bio. Melissa Cassera was the first and only person I contacted. I had been receiving her newsletter and reading her blog. At this point I handle my own pr and Melissa’s tips are gold! I also love her writing style: warm and funny, kind of like chatting with a friend at the kitchen table. Melissa sent me a list of questions which were fairly easy to answer and a week later she sent me the first draft. It was perfect! It was exactly what I wanted to convey and reflected my personality. I am so glad I hired Melissa to write my bio! As soon as I am able to financially, I will hire her to handle my company’s pr.”

I would recommend Melissa Cassera to entrepreneurs in any stage of their business. My session with her was energizing! Melissa helped motivate me to continue to do some of the things I am already doing and gave me some concrete ideas for delving into the world of television in the future. I have three pages of notes from a one hour call!

Melissa is a freakin’ PR rockstar! Talking to Melissa is like talking to your girlfriend. She gives you straight-up honest advice and is a wealth of expertise. During our coaching session, she gave me hands-on, user friendly action steps to follow immediately. Everything from coming up with pitch ideas, (which she is brilliant-she can spin the pitches right off the top of her head!) to creating a system to track all media sources with a mix of national to local. She broke the overwhelming process down in achievable steps and gave me tons of ideas on how to pitch to magazines and tv stations. After our coaching, I landed my dream article! I took Melissa’s advice and contacted the editor of one of my favorite magazines. I offered do to a guest post on their website, and it went very well. They loved it and now I am set to write an article for their wedding issue! With Melissa’s support and guidance, plus kick-ass action plans, I am on my way to becoming an expert in my field. I highly recommend Melissa to anyone who want to take their business to the next level.

I wanted to thank you for speaking with me about NuttButt Bakery last night. You totally re-energized me, gave me the confirmation I needed on certain ideas and opened my eyes to so many more possibilities!! I was buzzing for hours and could have worked on it all night
