Donna DeClemente is the primary blogger for Donna’s Promo Talk which was launched in February, 2007. This blog is written for marketers to help keep them up to date on the latest promotions, trends and legal issues affecting the industry and the integration of promotional and social media marketing.

Donna has an extensive and diverse background assisting with the development and implementation of a wide variety of marketing and promotional programs. After holding several key agency positions, including agency president at a top 100 promotional marketing firm, she founded her own company, DDC Marketing, back in 2005, specializing in social media, search advertising, promotions and marketing communications.

Donna joined the team at American Sweepstakes and Promotions Company as their Digital/Social Media Director where she assisting clients with Social Sweeps marketing solutions that combine promotions with social media and mobile.

Besides Donna’s Promo Talk, I also have been one of the women contributing bloggers on The Lip-Sticking blog which has been named in Forbes as one of the 20 Best Marketing and Social Media Blogs by Women. I also occasionally write on BlogPaws, an online community for pet bloggers and pet lovers. I served on the marketing committee for the Rochester Women’s Network for several years and originally launched their first monthly e-newsletter. I have presented on social media, promotions and online marketing to various groups such as the Rochester Women’s Network, the  Marketing to Digital Divas Conference held in Toronto, Canada, the University of Rochester’s Simon School of Business, The Rochester Chapter of the American Marketing Association, various local Chambers of Commerce and the Pathways to Entrepreneurial Success Forum, an annual event hosted by the Rochester area’s colleges and universities. I have moderated a blogging panel at the Social Media 2 Day Conference which featured Chris Brogan as keynote and I have spoken on the subject of Social Sweeps promotions at several BlogPaws Conferences.

I have a long-standing relationship with the PMA/BAA, the Brand Activation Association and have been a guest blogger of theirs for several years as well as their “Official Conference Blogger” at their  conferences.

Please contact me if you are interested in discussing the services I offer through either DDC Marketing or the American Sweepstakes & Promotions Company or in having me speak at an upcoming event.
