I am the founder of Media Barker, where I leverage my 20+ years of experience in online marketing, project planning, management, communications, and PR techniques. This valuable experience plus my own internal techniques and processes, customized to client’s needs, allows me to deliver new and unique solutions to clients.
I was recently selected as an Authorized Local Expert by Constant Contact®, Inc., the trusted marketing advisor to more than half a million small organizations worldwide. As an Authorized Local Expert, I will be offering free training seminars on best practices of various online marketing techniques across the Upstate New York and Northern Pennsylvania area.
I have presented to companies and conferences of all sizes on the subjects of Social Media, Email Marketing, Selling, Leadership, and other aspects of the Internet in general. I specialize in developing and implementing customized Social Media Marketing strategies that fully integrate your traditional marketing with your online marketing. This includes your Email marketing, Social Media profiles (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, YouTube, etc.), website, newsletters, radio, TV, newspapers, and anything else you use to promote your business, products, or services.
Currently, I am very active in the Elmira Rotary Club and just started my term as President for the 2013-2014 year. In addition to my professional accomplishments, I have been married to my wife, Shawnie for 15 years and have two beautiful girls, 12 & 9. I am also an Eagle Scout, a Martial Arts Karate and Self-Defense instructor, and I volunteer for my church and other organizations in the Corning and Elmira communities.
I like to say, “For businesses to thrive in the future, they need to have a Social Media presence. Integrating Social Media and the Internet into their existing business infrastructure is a challenge to most businesses. My passion is helping them do that successfully.”

Attended a seminar that Tom recently put for the Rotary district conference. I have to tell you that for that seminar alone it was worth the time and drive. Tom was able to provide me so much information and insight that would greatly benefit not only our club but also me personally.
