HearSay with Mel Schulte

It’s not every day we get a chance to sit down and talk with Media Specialist Mel Schulte. In fact, it’s quite rare. That’s because Mel has one of the busiest responsibilities in the agency: managing media and keeping up on all the latest platforms and opportunities. She took a break from her massive spreadsheet collection to share a few thoughts with us.

How actively does one have to keep up on all the media/platform advertising options out there?

I am constantly looking for new media options. There are always new trends, platforms and opportunities presenting themselves. However, it’s not about how many there are, it’s more about finding the right opportunity for the right client.

Regardless of platform/media, what is something about media strategy that remains constant or universal?

Know your audience.

The more you know about the audience you are trying to reach, the more effective your media placement will be. Are you trying to reach a rancher in Nebraska looking for the local high school basketball’s game? Or a parent of young children who spends a lot of time on social media? There are different tactics we can use to reach those audiences. You want to be sure to get your message in front of your target audience.

And finally, as a lover of the SDSU Jackrabbits, what are the essentials to pulling off a successful tailgate?


Some may show up with a cooler and a bag of chips picked up at the convenience store, but to take a tailgate to the next level you need a plan. Make sure you have an advanced team to handle setup. Pick a theme for the menu. Identify who’s responsible for drinks? Food? Games?

Plan ahead so that during your tailgate you can actually relax and have fun with your friends. And, don’t forget the extra bag of ice!

Molly Lanfear shows no fear when it comes to her travels, the weather and how she approaches her job. We took some time to talk to Molly about her roots, her creative inspirations and how she puts them into every photograph and content creation project. Growing up in Buffalo, NY, how would you compare the weather?  When you grow up in Buffalo, you develop a "bring-it-on" kind of mentality about winter. Eight feet of snow? No problem. Four feet? That's just your average Tuesday. But the key is, it doesn't last. Buffalo has relatively warm winters, and when Lake Erie…

HearSay with Tammy – Graphic Designer

What design challenges do you welcome or enjoy? I think one of the challenges that brings me the most satisfaction is creating something awesome when there is minimal content or direction from our clients. Sometimes our clients just don’t know what they want or can’t put it into words, and, more often than not, we nail it! But sometimes we get, “That’s not even close…by a longshot!” (Emphasized by Tammy’s famous laugh) Besides design itself, what are some special skills you bring to your work? I would have to say…proudly…that I’ve been known as “the office physician.” This is probably…
