The Strategic Peacock helps organizations create and implement online strategies that appropriately target the right audience with the right information using the right media. 



Marisa Peacock is the founder and chief strategist of the Strategic Peacock. Before founding her company in 2010, Marisa managed and produced websites, multimedia, and online content for not-profits, independent schools and small businesses. Marisa is also an adjunct faculty member at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, MD where she teaches social media marketing as a part of the Business of Art and Design graduate program; and at West Virginia University’s Reed College of Media, where she teaches Emerging Media and the Market as a part of the Integrated Marketing Communications graduate program.







Social media workshops offer a project-based learning day dedicated to hands-on social media training, audience development and content creation. Company partners learn how to create, manage and measure social media to show the value of the company (and its entities) to prospective and current customers, funders and partners.

Social Media Review

A social media review offers an in-depth analysis of your site’s presence across the various social networks and a strategy for ways to improve it. We will work with your organization to  outline an overall approach to optimizing online conversations and social media engagement.

Website Audits

A website audit analyzes all aspects of your site — usability, content, search optimization, and more. Recommendations for making updates to your website will also be provided. We will work with you to design a long-term strategy to tell your company’s story and showcase your brand through the appropriate channels.
