We had the good fortune of connecting with Kennedy Meehan and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kennedy, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
Small businesses were immensely affected by COVID-19, as were recent college graduates and undergraduate students when trying to find jobs and internships in their field. When everything in society went digital, I recognized an opportunity for businesses to capitalize on social media and collaboration with influential figures in their niche. As a recent graduate who was struggling to find employment in my field and recognizing the gap in the market for agencies servicing small businesses, I decided to launch The Azure Agency in an effort to help small businesses grow through the power of digital marketing. The Azure Agency also serves as a resource for recent college graduates to gain knowledge and hands-on experience in the Public Relations industry. With personalized approaches to all services, The Azure Agency aims to help small businesses reach their full potential by utilizing best practices in public relations, social media and influencer marketing.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My name is Kennedy Meehan and I am the founder of The Azure Agency, a full-service public relations and digital marketing agency specializing in securing third party credible content and influencer marketing.
We provide a variety of services, ranging from social media management to influencer marketing and media placements. We would love to help you out in any way we can in enhancing your brand’s identity and digital presence. We aim to address our clients wishes and goals by collaborating with influencers in their niche, securing press and increasing your exposure! With personalized approaches and strategies based on our client’s needs, goals and budgets, we take pride in our ability to capitalize on brand authenticity.
I have learned that authenticity and honesty are the most important things in business and forming relationships with clients. It is important that your clients understand your work, why it is valuable and how it can transform their business.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love to explore when traveling. My favorite places are those that are unique to a city and it’s culture. From outdoor activities to night life, I love to be present in the moment and experience things that you can’t get in any other place! Going to shows, concerts, or entertainment venues is one of my favorite things to do, as I love interacting with new people and broadening my perspective on life. I am also a huge sushi eater so any sushi restaurant is my go to!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to my mother and father who have always pushed me to think outside the box. I would not have been able to accomplish my success without them and their confidence in my abilities.
