Ellen Matis

Owner & Community Connector:
Ellen Matis

I launched Hello Social Co. in 2017 to pursue my passion of helping small businesses grow using their online presence. Since then, our agency has been able to work with companies large and small across the nation. As a digital marketer that’s worn many hats over the course of my career, I’ve developed the skills necessary to help get your business off the ground or to help you grow your online presence. Plus, I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs and know that it’s not easy to run a business while managing your brand online as well.  I studied Journalism and Public Relations with a focus in digital media at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and have a master’s in Integrated Marketing Communications from West Virginia University.

Things to know about me:

Community Connector

I developed the #FocusonLocal Approach to connect more people, businesses and organizations to their communities. Ask me about the Approach and what it means for your social media strategy.

Strategy Expert

At Hello Social Co., I won't be the one crafting your posts or engaging with your audience. I'll be working with you to set your social media goals and craft a strategy that our team will use to help you reach them.

Based in the #PAWilds

While I work with almost all of our clients nationwide in some way, I call The Pennsylvania Wilds home. When I'm not at home in Bellefonte, I'm usually camping around the Wilds region.
