About Us

Rise Above The Din was conceived by owner, Sonya Mastick. As a former small business owner and someone who has an absolute passion for learning new mediums, starting a social media business made perfect sense. “When I owned my own business I took a slew of classes on social media marketing, SEO processes, and website building. Having all that knowledge was great but I ran into the same problem that most business owners do, I had ZERO time to implement it. When you are spread so thin running all of the day-to-day operations, the last thing you want to do is spend hours on the computer at night.” says Sonya.

However, we are in a brave new world of marketing and spending hours online engaging with your customers is imperative to keep your presence active and relative. Not to mention, reaching customers through Facebook, Twitter, and other free sites is far more cost effective than traditional advertising options.

What do we provide? We meet with a client, assess their needs, and return to them a proposal. This will suggest what types of social media pages that should be started and why. Also, we will discuss how much interaction they would like us to have with their customers. Some of our clients are very hands on with their customers and some simply don’t have time to. Essentially, you can get as little or as much as you want out of the deal. Some clients pay a flat rate for the week and some want hourly work, depending on the time of year or promotional events that are going on. The key is that a business’ online interaction must be consistent; meaning it must be daily and have a consistent “voice”.

The first consultation is free, so feel free to give us a call,
set-up a meeting, and see what we have to offer!


Small Businesses and Organizations that we have worked with:

  • The Chamber approached us about assisting with some of their marketing that had in place already but also to create new outlets and campaigns. We meet bi-weekly to discuss strategy on not only attracting more members for the chamber but to provide real value and top quality services to its current members.
    We assist with their Facebook, Twitter, and events.

  • Anne and Siouxsan are two friends who took a passion and made it into a lucrative business. They sell handmade soy candles, soaps, lotion, etc… When they contacted us for help they already had a firm handle on who their customer base was and how they wanted to market themselves. They had a common problem, they didn’t have enough time to run their business, give detailed attention to their customers AND do around-the-clock marketing. We were able to aggregate all of their preexisting sites, add new ones, and speak more effectively on each. We have successfully delivered on each request as it is presented; pushing new lines, seasonal products, along with driving customers to their newly renovated website. We understand that business ownership, especially small biz, is constantly in flux and we must be flexible to the needs of our clients as they change.

  • We were asked to help with an overall social media presence, promote events, and make more people not only aware of the church’s presence, but to prompt people to interact on their social media sites.Viewership is up 95% on most sites. We have successfully encouraged users to engage in the activity of the sites and give the church a more community feel online. Currently their primary sites are Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and a Website. We manage all of them.

  • Operating since the late 1970’s, Jewel is a Kosher institution. Catering events from arena size to a private dinner for two, they had very unique needs. They wanted not only more visibility in social media but wanted to be branded as a current and relevant company who is steeped in tradition. They adhere to the highest orthodox standards so there were many do’s and dont’s. Rise built every piece of their online presence from scratch, creating an accurate and engaging campaign. Aside from managing their website, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Business, Yelp, Instragram, and perform SEO analytics, we photograph their events and all of their dishes for content on the sites.

  • This charming family-owned catering company has been around for over 64 years. They have a rich history within the Jewish community so it was challenging figuring out how and where to utilize social marketing. There are confines with Kosher standards along with the Jewish Sabbath (shabbat) and the long list of holidays. It took some time but we finally put together a comprehensive plan which includes Facebook, Twitter, SEO, website development, with a few other outlets to round out a plan that worked for all parties. Rise produces every single piece of content that goes onto their media pages.

  • One of the owners contacted us about marketing advice, at which point we ended up implementing LinkedIn as part of their online presence. Mr. Slaughter was so pleased with our services that he also gave us his Facebook account as well. We manage both pages and populate content.

  • This was a brand new CPA firm, so all of the pages had to be generated from scratch. Owner Matt Tapson did not have a specific vision for what he wanted but understood the importance of a media presences. We created for him pages on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, and Youtube. We also helped to complete the website and maintain it.

  • Carole Hoste is the owner of Detroit School of Music and is an example of someone who had a good grasp on basic social media skills and had on a few pages a large following already. We came in, created additional pages that were necessary, and began to more actively engage customers.

  • Ms. Greene needed everything when we were brought on board. Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Instagram, and Pinterest were the primary pages that we setup. She wanted to maintain them on her own after about a month from their initial launch. So our total involvement was just getting the campaign and each page off the ground.
