Melody Gambino

Leader, Marketer, and Coach in Denver, CO

Allow me to introduce myself:

I'm Melody Gambino and my offering to the world is a love of art, pop culture, nuance and my expertise in marketing, beauty & wellness, wardrobe styling, and connection. I'm also owner of STUNG MKTG, a marketing agency that's sicker than your average (IYKYK), binoberry, my artist alter ego, and Glambino, providing creative direction and wardrobe edits/personal branding work for the normies and fashion world.

What I'm good at:

I live with intense anxiety and OCD that I've flipped into a superpower for near-instant fraction/mathematic solves and trimming content from complex to clear and jargon-free. Gifts are my love language, I put my rep on the claim that I'll give better Mothers Day present reco's than any search AI.

20 years of practice:

I am a human and marketing leader with expertise in

  • corporate/employer/consumer brands
  • communications and tone
  • growth strategy
  • channel/ambassador/partner programs
  • category creation
  • digital and social media footprints
  • partnership with my buds in sales, product, and customer success
  • strategic planning
  • actually implementing that shit

I'm a customer-centric empath marketer, demonstrated throughout my career in supporting acquisitions and growth strategy, delivering on revenue targets, increasing customer engagement, creating ambassador and reference programs and launching strong employment brand initiatives. Prove it? Fine. This 25 minute webinar is my take on maxing out your investment in growth efforts by personalizing content by personas. TL;DR:

My background lies in building/modernizing global marketing teams, insights, and intelligence that lead to fine-tuned value propositions, and automating the sales and marketing process that lead to established objectives and ROI. I've built teams from scratch and bespoke to the company's goals or KPIs and I'm tapped to supporting established large teams eager to level up their efforts.

My mom says I'm amazing:

DM News inducted me into the Marketing Hall of Fame in 2016, MarTech Today's Women to Watch in 2018 and Business Journal's 40 under 40 in 2019. I am an experienced author and thought leader, featured in Forbes, MarketingLand, MarTech Today, The Huffington Post, BrightTalk, Inc.

To say that Melody is a wonderful leader, teammate, and human being would be a gross understatement: she is so much more than that. In her short time leading our Marketing department, Melody created an environment of trust, accountability, and transparency that didn't exist before and brought an honest and creative perspective to an organization that badly needed it. Her ability to recognize talent and act quickly to get the right people doing the right jobs is second to none.

Melody was a great business leader I had the privilege of working with. She has a unique ability to combine strategic insights with bigger picture thinking, to bring thoughtful and impactful programs to market. Focusing on business outcomes by driving cross functional collaboration, combined with her commitment to grow and develop her team make her invaluable marketing and business leader at any company.

When I asked Melody to help me to improve the employee brand, I there was little to zero budget. What we had was fantastic talent, a great product and Melody’s vision. After 3 weeks Melody delivered a recruitment campaign that shaped the foundations of who we went on to be. I will always thank her for helping me to attract the best technical, creative and sales talent in the AdTech sphere.
