The Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce has announced that My Classified Ads, LLC, (http://myclassifiedads.net) has been chosen as a Semi-Finalist for the 2015 “Small Business of the Year” Awards. The company will be honored at a luncheon June 16 at the Tampa Museum of Art.

"We understand the language of media,” Clevenger said. “We are experts at evaluating the productivity of an advertising campaign across all types of platforms.”

For the fourth time in less than a year, My Classified Ads, LLC, (http://myclassifiedads.net), a full-service advertising agency, has been honored by a respected independent organization—this time, it’s the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce.

MCA has been selected as a Semi-Finalist for the 2015 “Small Business of the Year” Awards. The company will be honored at a luncheon sponsored by Adcock Financial Group and Simpson Air on June 16 at the Tampa Museum of Art.

“This luncheon will include important information about the next steps in the judging process, including questions that will be asked during the interviews,” organizers said, adding that Semi-Finalists such as MCA will have “an opportunity to ask additional questions and hear from judges.”

The next round of judging includes a 20-minute interview with an MCA representative on Friday, June 19, at the Chamber.

“This nomination showcases the continued support from business leaders throughout the Tama Bay area on how integral the print-digital relationship is in the advertising industry,” said Alex Clevenger, Senior National Broadcast Media Specialist. “Our company is continuing to prove that print is very much alive and well in today’s digital age.”

MCA was co-founded by Blare Fanning and Steve Juanette in 2004. Fanning is now the company’s CEO; Juanette is MCA’s Director of Financial Operations. MCA acquired Russell Johns Associates (http://russelljohns.com) in 2014. The MCA-RJA family of firms includes Classified Advertising Plus, LLC, dba PrintAndRadio.com; Blaire.co; and MCAads dba Russell Johns Associates. Offices are at 5020 W. Linebaugh Ave., Suite 210, in Tampa.

Clevenger describes MCA as “a full-service media company that truly cares about the success of its clients,” while RJA (Russell Johns Associates) is a nationally known publisher’s representative that connects advertisers with the nation’s top media brands in the publishing industry.

The recognition by the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce is MCA’s fourth acknowledgement from an authoritative independent organization in less than 10 months.

Last fall the company was listed at No. 20 on the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s List of the Top 100 women-owned companies in the Bay area. The Tampa Award Program identified MCA as one of the Bay area’s “Best of 2014” Advertising Agencies. Earlier this year, the National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) welcomed Fanning, MCA-RJA’s CEO, into its membership.

How does the company explain its success?

"We understand the language of media,” Clevenger said. “We are experts at evaluating the productivity of an advertising campaign across all types of platforms.”

Since moving into its state-of-the-art facility last year, MCA-RJA has concentrated on broad, long-term strategies—including transforming an all ready talented staff into a team of savvy professionals immersed in customer service and product knowledge.

RaeAnne Meyer, Director of Media Strategy, explains MCA’s business philosophy this way: “We take pride in the success of each and every one of our clients. Being able to play a role in helping companies grow and watching them achieve their goals is a huge motivator for us.”
