30A.com Partners with M Public Relations

South Walton, Florida – July 18, 2011 – 30A.com has partnered with M Public Relations of Miramar Beach to help manage the growing network’s daily operations and branding initiatives.

“No one understands how to communicate our local lifestyle better than a local, and Madra McDonald is a true life-long resident,” said 30A’s Mike Ragsdale. “Madra’s team consistently delivers powerful results for clients such as YOLO Board, Stand Up Fitness, Calavera Swimwear, Beach Properties of Florida, SunQuest Cruises, Table Five and many others, and we’re so excited to be working with her again.

“Last year, M Public Relations took over 30A’s daily operations for 3 months while the company’s owners were traveling. “Most people didn’t even know we were gone, which is very strong testimony to how well Madra understands the brand,” said Ragsdale. “She sees the 30A vision very clearly.”

In addition to helping manage the popular 30A brand, M Public Relations will also help promote and manage the new SouthWalton.com, which is expected to launch within a few weeks.

“I’m thrilled to be teaming up with Mike and the 30A team as they continue to roll-out new and exciting layers of the beloved lifestyle brand,” said McDonald. “Over the years, I’ve always found 30A.com to be a positive and refreshing information hub for locals and visitors alike. Today, it has evolved into a household name that celebrates this beautiful, quaint corner of Florida that we’re fortunate to call home.”

Ragsdale said he believes it is very important to hire and utilize local talents, and to support local business owners.

“Walton County’s home to an amazing variety of world-class designers, photographers, writers, chefs, musicians, artists, architects, marketers, entrepreneurs, PR practitioners and other professionals,” said Ragsdale. “Every time we hire or support one of our local talents, we’re investing in Walton County’s future.”
