Women in Business - Twelve31 Media Margaret H. Geiger, owner and founder

Twelve31 Media is a full-service marketing company born out of the necessity to help small businesses grow and thrive while providing budget-friendly tools. Owner and founder Margaret H. Geiger has held marketing roles on both sides of the aisle—agency and in-house.

“With my experience, knowledge, and connections made through community involvement and philanthropy work, I knew I was ready to take my career to the next level and launch my own company,” says Geiger, who has held several positions in the community, including as an ambassador for the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce and Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corporation. She also received a Jefferson Award by Multiplying Good in 2020 for her philanthropy and community service work as a Grand Strand ChangeMaker. “I can’t imagine being anywhere or doing anything else.”

Twelve31 Media specializes in public relations, social media management and email marketing.  Services also include graphic design, copywriting, website design, digital advertising and consulting/training. 

The world of public relations and social media is always changing and evolving, and that can make it difficult to stay on top of trends and cut through the noise. That’s where Twelve31 Media comes in. It’s important to have an expert handle the marketing and promotional aspects of a company so you, as the owner, can focus on what you do best—running the business. Media users want more raw, authentic content, especially in video form. Building a brand is all about building trust. Reviews and testimonials are crucial.

“Twelve31 Media is not a 9-to-5 company. I’m not sitting in a cubicle all day. I’m traveling, visiting with clients, and making new connections outside of our area,” says Geiger. “I’m a one-woman-show, but I’m fortunate to have certain people I can rely on for specific client needs. I love sharing business opportunities and bringing people together. I’m a small business owner that likes to work with small businesses. I also understand their budgets, goals and objectives, and ensure that I utilize their finances and time wisely,”

Twelve31 Media was voted Best Advertising Agency,  Best Graphic Design Company  and Best PR/Marketing Firm by the Myrtle Beach Herald Readers’ Choice Awards and the North Strand News Readers’ Choice Awards. 

Geiger has this advice for women who are starting out on their own: “Go for it! It can be scary at first—starting something from scratch. But if you have a strong support system, great ideas, and aren’t afraid to work hard and get your hands dirty, there’s nothing you can’t accomplish!”
