Helping Brands With Social Media Strategy And Management


Take Social Media Off Your {Already Full} Plate

We know it’s hard as a business owner to juggle the million and one responsibilities you have.

Small Town Socials is here to take social media out of your hands, so you can focus on running your business. Our expertise in social media allows us to tell business’ stories and curate content to reach your target audience and build a genuine connection with them.

Hi, I’m Amy!

Social media consultant, brand strategist, and founder of Small Town Socials.

I’m here to help you form a strategy that works for your business’ social media and get the results you want.

I have worked in digital marketing for over 11 years. I started with working at the State 4-H Headquarters, where I was in charge of marketing 4-H events and programs to the youth of Texas. I was also the coordinator for one of the largest youth events in the country, Texas 4-H Roundup, which has a large social media and digital presence.

During my time with the State 4-H Headquarters, I was taking pictures along with my other marketing efforts. I realized how much I enjoyed it and that I wanted to have a bigger impact. So, officially in 2010, Amy Mehaffey Photography and Design was born.

I also worked for the City of Nacogdoches for five years. I worked with the Main Street program to develop a long-term marketing strategy for downtown and the city as a whole. I also developed a reputation management program for the organization. During my time with the city, I was able to mentor small businesses in the downtown area to build a marketing strategy in order to gain followers, customers, and sales.

Over the past 12 years with Amy Mehaffey Photography and Design, I have worked to form Small Town Socials as a stand alone social media management agency. We have worked with several clients in my local area and beyond, and hope to continue to grow to spread the small town values to businesses of any size.

Additionally, I have been a featured guest panelist at the Governor’s Small Business Conference speaking on social media strategies. I also currently teach marketing and agricultural communications at Stephen F. Austin State University.

Because of my background in agricultural communications and small business marketing, I know I am able to serve your needs adequately to provide fresh and creative content to promote your business on social media.

Let’s Get To The Fun Stuff

I am married to the love of my life, John Michael Mehaffey. We have three daughters, Hattie (6), Hunter (4) and Hart (born June 2022). It’s safe to say we are no strangers to being busy and having our hands full and we wouldn’t have it any other way! If you look around my websites, you’ll no doubt see their silly faces sprinkled around as they are my honorary creative directors.

I love coffee, champagne, {cold} beer, turquoise, big hair, and football. I love to grow flowers, as long as I can remember to water them. I’m always excited to make a new friend, up for a new challenge, and I will forever hope that sarcasm burns calories.
