Founder, Splinkink Media
Social media is one of the key influencers in today's society. Knowing how difficult it is for new companies to keep up with the most popular networking platforms, Splinkink takes the fear out of Facebook, the tizzy out of Twitter, and the worry out of WordPress. We create written and visual content that helps engage and target audiences, connect businesses with customers, drive traffic, and ultimately increase sales with ideas that are bigger than the proverbial box.
Whether you're looking for social media strategies, web content, press kits, articles, interviews, blog posts, photographs, design, or videos that take your company viral, Splinkink's team of topnotch professionals work seamlessly to provide communications solutions tailored to each client's specific needs.
With 15-plus years of experience in writing, editing, producing, design, and creative direction, Barbara Vay understands the importance of the message. A graduate of New York City's prestigious School of Visual Arts, Ms. Vay began her career by building a costume jewelry design and manufacturing company that boasted 12 showrooms nationwide and a team of independent sales reps. Her art-to-wear collections earned press coverage in fashion publications, newspapers, radio, video, and television -- all thanks to the power of her well-chosen words.
Barbara transitioned her "knack" for public relations and writing into a consulting business that garnered clients trade show accolades as well as newspaper, magazine, and television coverage. Under her creative direction, Manhattan Internet service provider Metrocomm™ won several top industry awards and press coverage for marketing materials, video production, and booth design at their very first Telecom Business trade show. Barbara wrote for various e-commerce and small business sites before stepping into the role of Assistant Creative Director at Paradigm Direct, a web marketing firm, where she spearheaded various co-branded campaigns, including a fantasy investment game for E*Trade and CBS's "Survivor" reality series.
Upon moving to Los Angeles, Barbara entered the entertainment arena, creating and co-producing "Star Chi," a TV pilot for VH1. Online campaigns and live events for various clients followed, including projects for Mike Young Productions' Emmy© Award-winning shows "Pet Alien" and "ToddWorld."
Next stop? The happiest place on Earth. As a senior writer/editor at Disney Interactive for nearly a decade, Barbara's high-profile interviews, popular articles, blog posts, and field producing took her to "the red carpet and beyond." But it was her intrinsic understanding of social media that quadrupled Disney Insider's Twitter following shortly after taking on the project. Recently she increased Neysa Entertainment's blog traffic 823% within the first three months of 2014 alone ... and she's ready to put that knowledge to work for you.
