Phoenix, Arizona – July 23, 2018 – Social media has become one of the most powerful marketing tools for business owners all over the world.  For one marketing expert and an instant social media following of tens of thousands of people, Melissa Swader leverages social media as a way to bring business owners together to personally introduce community owners to each other, generate new leads, build new relationships, and boost economic opportunities for those looking for commercial real estate space.

Swader, who was named 2018 Outstanding Women in Business by the Phoenix Business Journal earlier this year and recognized by the Broker List in the TOP 10 CRE bloggers for the blog work she writes for SVN Desert Commercial Advisors has created an interactive evening of networking, free raffle giveaways, and a room full of priceless and valuable conversations.

Every quarter, Swader organizes and hosts the “Biz Mix & Mingle” networking event in north Phoenix at one of the local restaurants in the area. Last week, there were over seventy guests comprised of residents and local business owners that serve the north valley Phoenix, Anthem and surrounding areas.  With two exhibitor tables set up, “Young Entrepreneur”, 9-year old Raven Meeks displayed her Eeray Bath Fizzies and be introducing a new line of product to a retail store in Glendale this Fall.  SVN’s landlord and tenant rep, Jennifer Hill was also there to educate small business owners on commercial real estate options for those looking for space, expansion or new builds on flex/warehouse space.  When asked how Meeks felt about the event, she replied, “This is amazing.”  Hill stated, “This was an effective networking event putting local businesses together for the betterment of all.  Talk about an engaging, fun and friendly mixer.”  Hill expressed that this was “an incredible value to all who attended.”

Earlier this month, Swader attended the Facebook Community Boost in downtown Phoenix.  With over 2.2 billion monthly users on Facebook and over 90% of people using Facebook from their mobile phones, Swader is able to capitalize on digital and social media marketing to help elevate others.
