“Big Things Start off Small” ~Jeff Bezos

#1. New Contacts

If your Business is on Social Media, this will automatically bring you new contacts. Did you know that your Customers are now looking for you online even before they even step in the door?

Tools such as Facebook & Google Analytics  or a Klout Score are some examples that show proof of your Social ROI, & Social Currency.  These tools enable you to see which content is helping or hurting your online posts & status updates that effect your brands awareness &  growth.

#2. Leverages Existing Referrals

Old ways of Marketing & Advertising have changed & Social Media is part of that change.

Your Business is well known by your existing customers, Social Media in turn will bring you referrals that haven’t quite made a decision to buy your services or purchase your products.

Customers from Social Media are really very informed, by the posts on your Social Sites. The information you give online helps people make their buying decision; especially when you have the best content that promotes the right engagement. People online are really looking for the value you bring them.

#3. Provides traditional referrals from your peers-

Most likely your peers are already on Social Media, this is no longer taboo, & a question of whats the ROI of Social?

Billions of People are utilizing Social Media to stay in touch with the People, Places, and things that they enjoy in life. This includes your Business Peers,  whom are referring their friends & family to your Services or Products.

Most likely if you are a Business Owner you have a Network of Colleagues whom also have a Business, that are actively engaging with their network, & ready to refer a friend or family to your Business.

This my friends IS THE Beauty of Social.


*GOLDEN TIP* What are you Customers thinking ?

(Here is an insight as it relates to social media):

“Does this Product or Service really care about their Customers”? Are they bringing me interesting information that I need to make my buying decision? Are my friends & family talking about it?”

“Is this page entertaining ? ” and “Is this post cool enough to share on my wall?”

Keeping your Customer/Community in mind on your Social Site Page WILL bring you a duration of success & growth.



Still not Convinced on the Power of Social Media? | Ice Bucket Challenge

The Ice Bucket Challenge creates a chain reaction of attention to a Product, Person , Brand, Group, or Raises Awareness.

The person who accepts the challenge then nominates  3 more people to take the challenge and the challenge continues.

The Challenge is to video record yourself  Dumping an Ice Cold Bucket of water on your head, if you dont take the challenge you are to donate $100 to the Group, Cause, or Charity.

The video essentially gets shared & takes on a new meaning to word of  mouth.

There is currently a Viral Ice Bucket Challenge that raises awareness to ALS Disease known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Social Media enables people to connect in so many ways. Its critical for Small Businesses to be on Social Media now & as it progresses, because there are so many ways to market, and build your community around your fans, clients, and customers.

People like to share, connect with others, and give their opinions online. Technology is moving so fast, and the human aspect of it is  still standing strong. We are all connected.  I employ that you take action NOW on social Media.

Media Relations Team Ltd 2014 talks The Real World 20 years ago



Hi I am Felicia Martinez Owner & Founder of #Media Relations Team A Social Media/Brand Management Company. I create and build relationships and  communities on social sites.

Remember when Mtv only had videos?? therealworld1

Well I do! In 1992 -22 years ago Mtv Introduced The Real World – a reality show that I knew that I knew would be a big hit. I loved it.  Something about the realness of people and the lives they lived interested me something serious- this really took off.



Its now 2014- We are in the connection economy and 

there is now a fundamental shift in the way we do business. The idea Mtv had with reality t.v. created a whole new genre of television & the way we viewed it. This soon became popular as other networks followed with their own reality shows like “Making the Band” and “Big Brother”. The  reality element was a definite hit, thus the explosion of reality shows across many networks.

  MTV paved a movement for the last 22 years & reality shows are still going strong for example “The Real Housewives”, &” Keeping up with the Kardashians”, the list goes on & on.  So just like the Reality T.V. Movement; marketing has a huge shift also that’s impacting the way we used to market.

Here we are in 2014 & Social Networks are a super powerful way of connecting people online & its not going anywhere soon.

 #Media Relations Team was officially created  in 2010 with the notion that Social Media was never going away & that more & more people will be turning to Social Networks for consumer related interactions. MRT is leveraging the social media platform & has shifted into the relationship marketing  industry. Its not only about commercials bombarding your consumers, its about consumers finding your brand and building relationships within your social networks. 


Our Vision is to become the largest Social Media Company locally that provides the best quality services and the lowest rates for Small Business Owners.


Our Passion is to help small businesses sustain, succeed, and expand online in an ever changing world.

Keeping you above the competition is our goal! 

Bottom line is people want to feel accepted they want to be heard and share their opinions.

its a #WinWin Situation


Thank you for reading this post ~ Felicia Martinez

I feel like a Million Bucks

Million dollar

We are like magnets – like attract like. You become AND attract what
you think ~ “The Secret”

Having an attitude of gratitude is not only a saying  but it has deeper meaning. Its a feeling! A Real feeling. Do I have a funny experience to tell you about its actually putting the ‘Secret’ to the test in my life. Of all Places this happened to me at Dollar Tree, one of my favorite stress reliever stores, I feel like I actually shopped with just a $20 bill- That’s my budget though I am not too proud to admit.

Back to the topic, I arrived at Dollar Tree & In my car I made a conscious decision & I said to myself, today when they ask me “how are you” (which I know my local store employees always do) I would say ” I feel like a million bucks”  I have NEVER said the words ” I feel like a million bucks” aloud to anyone before. On this day I finally decided to, so I did, & you wouldn’t believe how this turned out (No, I haven’t won the lottery..yet) 

I arrive at the register, & the girl looks at me & says how are you today?” I looked over at the platform where they load the bags, & there sitting is a box of 1 million Dollar chocolate wrapped candy bars. At that moment, I paused ,I touched the Bars, & said ” I feel like a million bucks!” It was the coolest feeling of happiness that surged through my soul & up to my smiling face. !! This story sounds corny but the feeling behind it at THAT moment was unbelievable, its like Magic almost, or believing something into existence.  Sshhh the SECRET – IT WORKS !

A Bridge Between


“The hardest thing in life is to know which bridge to cross and which to

Hello my name is Felicia Martinez Owner & Founder of Media Relations Team Ltd.

My Company is a Bridge Between Mainstream & Traditional Media. There is a Social Media Wave that has bombarded all aspects of marketing as we have known in the past. People are now connecting on social media platforms in the Millions. This mass shift has changed the way the media conducts their business as usual. They have to find ways to connect socially to their audience, because their audience is now online.

Forget the old ways of marketing in the Yellow Pages, and commercials. Now the consumers are finding you. They are typing your company name in Google  reading reviews, and looking for peers suggestions, and trying to connect to your brand online. If you don’t have a social presence online then there is no bridge for your customers to cross, they go in another direction.

Media Relations Team is here to fill the gap, of over priced marketing promotions, traditional ways of marketing, bombarding consumers with commercials and ads everywhere they turn. #MRT is here as a bridge to connect your brand to the consumer in a polite and social way…..they FIND you.

If you are on Social Platforms you are available.

If you have a #Team like ours to back you up , with posts, sharing, & interacting socially on line then you are on your way to more exposure.

Cross the Bridge go to the other side, and free your brand into the World Wide Social Web.
