About Me

Melissa Farquharson

I have spent the past 20 years working in the media and marketing space.

I began my career as a news journalist for rural and metropolitan newspapers before joining industry travel publication Travel Weekly as a Deputy Editor.

Following a year-long sabbatical I returned to Australia to begin expanding my skills in the communications/public relations space firstly as a contractor to Barwon Water, then building the start-up PR agency Propeller.

During that time I worked with top brands such as Qantas, Australia Post, Yellow Pages, Carlton Draught, Heinz, Tetley, Farm Pride and Libra among many others.

Following the birth of my daughter, I moved my workplace permanently to Birregurra and began developing my knowledge and skills in the digital marketing space.

I recognised there were many small businesses in the region that needed help to get online and into the digital age.

And so Main Street Communications was born.

Since then, I have helped more than 20 small businesses expand into the digital world.

I offer affordable marketing skills with specialities in tourism and travel, food production and agriculture.
