Let me help you get things done!

I love undertaking challenging marketing projects and solving problems. I'm just as comfortable coding up a landing page as I am planning a campaign, writing ad copy or meeting partners or clients at an event...

Product Marketing

Conducted customer research to identify product issues, then led product repositioning and launch. This included PR, marketing asset creation, paid search and partner training, and allowed penetration into new markets, generating $xxx,000s of new business.

Sales Management

Recruited and trained an international sales team in Australia, Philippines and Indonesia. This included setting sales targets, devising cross-cultural sales strategies, implementing a CRM system and documenting processes.

Pay-Per-Click Advertising

Executed and measured PPC campaigns using Google Adwords and Facebook Ads. This included landing page design, A/B testing and remarketing, and resulted in over 100 new leads per month and hundreds of registrations for marketing events. I'm also Google Adwords certified.

Partnership Marketing

Established and maintained a working partnership with a network of international agency partners. These partners continually generate 40-50% of sales each year, and are located as far and wide as India, South Korea, Australia, United Kingdom and Nigeria.

Marketing Automation

Coded a custom connection between Insightly CRM and MailChimp to trigger marketing activity based on pipeline stages and customer persona segments. I even wrote a blog post on how I did it!

Email Marketing

Executed email marketing strategy, which included automation of event-specific emails, promotional emails and monthly newsletters. This resulted in an average open rate of 21% across all email campaigns and an average conversion rate of 32% from email campaign traffic.

I have extensive experience in marketing, sales and customer service.

In my 10+ years of professional experience, I have spent 6 years as a marketing manager and marketing consultant. I have also done face-to-face customer service, hustled for a timeshare company and taught snowboarding!
