Our Difference


We call it Engagement on Demand.

To date, we’ve delivered more than 2,000 campaigns for a blue chip client list including Disney, Lionsgate, Sony Pictures, eBay, Microsoft, P&G and dozens more – making Megan Media one of the most trusted names in the content marketing space.

Our Story


It started in 2008. Then it all changed in 2016. 

Megan Calhoun was a stay at home mom, wanting to connect with other moms online. In the process, she encountered like-minded women who were early adopters of social media and passionate content creators. She was incredibly impressed by these women, and wanting to learn more from them, Megan started Twittermoms.com; a place where moms could connect with each other. Within the first couple months she had thousands of women joining, and as the community grew, it became less about product reviews and more about premium content that was authentic and engaging. Rebranding in 2010 as Socialmoms.com, it is now the leading voice for women nationwide.

In late 2016, frustrated by the lack of differentiation in the fast-growing “influencer marketing” world and dubious claims proliferating in the market, we launched the Athena AI platform. Years in development, Athena was built from the ground up based on real world consumer interaction data and gets smarter every day. Athena delivers marketing outcomes that matter, simplifies the management of influencer campaigns for brands and agencies alike, delivers consumer engagement at scale, and creates the highest ROI programs in the industry.
