My Carroll Direct has been a fixture in Carroll County since August of 2016. 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 Carroll 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 were dominating the space with inflated costs, which sacrificing quality; that is where My Carroll Direct stepped in.

My Carroll 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 Carroll Direct nails them both!
