My name, as you might have guessed from the URL and the title of this page, is Marjorie Clayman. I am using this space to let you know a bit more about me. I hope you take this as an invitation to tell me about yourself too!
I am the Vice President of Client Services at Clayman Marketing Communications, Inc., a third-generation Akron, Ohio marketing firm. I am the third generation! I am entering my eighth year of work in the marketing field and in that brief time so much has changed. Print has given way to online marketing, and it looks like online marketing may be in the process of giving way to mobile marketing. Websites, once considered somewhat optional, are now a necessity and a sign of credibility for companies. Of course, the biggest change has been the rise, the meteoric rise, of Social Media. When I started working in the marketing field, Twitter and Facebook did not even exist and my blog was on Livejournal. My how the times have changed.
My responsibilities at our marketing firm are varied and numerous, as is the case with so many in the marketing field. My most important job is to keep ahead of trends in the marketing business so that we can prepare our clients fully for what lies ahead. Beyond that, I serve as production manager, head proofreader, and I have my hands in a lot of copywriting, PR, media planning, and Social Media.
In my job away from my job, I dedicate a lot of time to my own Social Media community. I have been blogging on this site for about 1-1/2 years and have had the privilege to grow my Twitter community in the process.

In my free time
Believe it or not, I do have a smidgin of free time. In those 2-5 minutes, I like to do any of the following:
Crafting (cross stitching, knitting, and crocheting are my favorites)
Watching movies (From the Coen Brothers to Zoolander, I very likely like something you like)
Reading – especially historical books. I can’t shake my one true love!
Cooking – I especially enjoy trying to recreate my favorite restaurant dishes. It doesn’t always work out.
I think that’s enough about me. Now, how about you?
