About Us

Melanie Harriss

Hi. I’m Melanie Harriss, Owner/Director of Social Monkey social media agency.

During my time building a career working in PR & Marketing for big corporates and a local charity I discovered social media, and the key role it had started to play in the marketing mix. So, after having my son, I decided to set-up a social media agency to give me flexibility in my working life and explore this new, emerging form of marketing more. You can find out more about me and my background on my LinkedIn page.

Social Monkey has now been providing local small and medium organisations with social media marketing support since 2011 and clients include retail, hospitality, tourism, finance and community.

Hi. I’m Kristi Fletcher and work with Melanie Harriss as Social Media Manager for Social Monkey Ltd.

I work on a freelance basis, on various accounts for Social Monkey. Mainly working with clients on their presence on Twitter to engage with followers and help raise their profile.

“…the training for Twitter was brilliant. From being a computer dinosaur, I feel that I have gained a degree of competence on how to use social media websites and I can now take advantage of this wonderful network. The only disadvantage is that I spend too much time in front of a screen, when I should really practice my Yoga!”

“We like to have a presence on the main social media channels, but don’t have the time to look after these ourselves. Social Monkey have been brilliant in helping us to engage with the local community and have really boosted our digital advertising. We would highly recommend Mel and her team.”
