My Carroll Direct has been a fixture in Carroll County since August of 2016, but It began much earlier than that, with a Community Business Directory called MBD Maryland Business Directory, which was started in 2004 by Amy Giannakoulias, Partner and co-owner of Trembling Giant Marketing. My County Direct was designed as an evolution of the direct mail marketing product that was MBD Maryland.

Local, small businesses were looking for affordable, targetable, and frequent advertising opportunities; large national brands are dominating the space with inflated costs and low quality; that is where My Carroll Direct steps in. Our publications feature local businesses over national brands; our magazine format is more accessible and looked at than competitor publications delivered in envelopes; our high quality paper and hot press offset printing process produces superior color and detail to our low-end and newsprint quality competitors; and we are a home-grown central maryland business, growing with and supporting other local small businesses within the communities we serve. All reasons why your regionally focused business should make My County Direct one of the first solutions you choose for marketing your business to your community.

My County Direct is owned, managed, designed, produced, and distributed by Trembling Giant Marketing, a Carroll County local small business. It is focused on supporting and promoting other local small businesses. The design quality is professional, the print quality is superior, and it delivers for local businesses like clockwork. Whether you are looking to improve your brand marketing or your direct marketing, My County Direct nails them both!
