Mike Allton

Hi, I’m Mike. I am the founder of The Social Media Hat, a full service digital marketing agency, as well as Brand Evangelist at Agorapulse.

I take a holistic approach to digital marketing, combining strategy with tactics to provide clients with the greatest return on their investment. Moreover, I help businesses understand the long-term value of a great content strategy and help them in weaving that content into their overall marketing plan.

I have worked with everyone from solopreneurs to major corporations to deliver measurable results, including Gary W. Goldstein, producer of Pretty Woman, Brad Fiedel, composer for The Terminator, PBS St. Louis, and brands like Hubspot, Post Planner, and Agorapulse.

Throughout the years I have written for major industry publications like Social Media Examiner, MarketingProfs, Marketo, Social Media Today, BusinessesGrow, and others. I have been twice-ranked a Top Ten Social Media Blog, as well as been dubbed a Top Social Media Marketing Influencer, a Top Content Marketer, and a Top Chief Marketing Officer.

When not writing, I’m spending time with my two little girls, wife, dog and two cats, in our home in the Greater St. Louis Area.
