Melissa Barber Marketing


Melissa Barber Marketing is led by Melissa Barber, ironically enough - a consultant with more than 20 years experience in marketing, advertising, PR and branding.

Industry Exclusive Guarantee

When we work with you, we work ONLY with you - not your competitor down the street as well. After all, diversity is the spice of life.

Cedar Valley Focused

We live and work here, which means we know this market inside and out. We're located in Waverly and primarily serve the Cedar Falls-Waterloo metro area.

Friendly and engaged

We listen, first and foremost. We listen to what you want. We research what you've done. We discover where you want to go. And then we work with you on an integrated plan to get there.

Personal and targeted

We offer a personal, targeted approach that encompasses you, your company, your values, your markets (both current and ideal) and your goals together as unique aspects of a whole.

Creative and professional

At Melissa Barber Marketing, we take marketing personally and seriously (but with a healthy sense of humor). As with most things in life, the details make all the difference.

Melissa has been an integral partner for more than 15 years. Her creativity, enthusiasm and professionalism are exceptional. Her recommendations have steered us into areas we never would have considered, with fantastic results. It's such a relief to have her handle all things marketing, so we can focus on our restaurants. We highly value her partnership.

Having Melissa Barber Marketing handle our campaigns has been a huge weight off our shoulders. As a small business, you are always pulled in so many directions and marketing efforts sometimes get the short end of the stick. Marketing is so important and now I have the peace of mind that it is getting done. Their work is creative, relevant, and very professional. We’ve tried other firms in the past but feel MBM is unique with their ability to listen and understand our business and marketing needs. Highly recommend!

Melissa's attention to detail, customer service, and creativity make her top notch in her field. In just a few months we've gone from okay to great with our social media and web presence. Her work has resulted in strong online engagement with customers and an increase in sales. We're thankful to work with Melissa!

Our Story

During the fourth century BC, a rather thoughtful fellow named Aristotle came up with what I consider to be the foundation of marketing (and incidentally, the core principles of Melissa Barber Marketing).

He called it the Art of Rhetoric, or the art of persuasion.
