How did end up where am now?
I’ve been in marketing & sales my entire business life (got a marketing degree, worked both in clients and marketing agencies, got an MBA) and since 2009 have been working exclusively with small businesses, helping them with their marketing (& Mailxhimp).
What makes me different?
My skill set is pretty unique in that not only do I have years of experience in marketing, both traditional and digital, I'm extremely tech savvy (many would accuse me of being a geek!). I've built websites, recorded videos, run google Adwords & Facebook ad campaigns and sent thousands of emails both for myself and customers. This combo means that not only have a good handle on what should actually be focused on from a marketing point of view, but I understand what it takes to actually do it - saving you time and money in the process.
I’ve been using Mailchimp as my primary tool for about 9 years now, and it fits perfectly with my market, my skill set, and what I know people need - but I’m not a Mailchimp shill - it’s good at some things, but not at others - which is why I look to combine it with other systems when required to get the best for my customers.
...but I use Mailchimp every day and it's the only email marketing system (EMA) my business uses... so I don't just talk the talk... I walk the walk.
I also launched Mailchimp Answers as a group on Facebook, and it's the largest community of Mailchimp users on Facebook by some distance.
Feel free to drop me a message if you've got any questions about any of this...
