Most of my earlier career was spent in sales and marketing of industrial supplies and equipment. I started and ran my own companies (3) and finished out that part working as a director of sales and marketing for an equipment manufacturing company. For all of my career I was responsible for “The Brand” and I did marketing, advertising and sales. When budget allowed I hired professionals to do the work, but a lot of the time I pulled late nights and early mornings and learned how to market myself and my company. I became intrigued in the late 90s with the internet. I recognized early that this was not just one more thing but this was THE THING. I invested heavily with my spare time to master both the understanding and the technical side of this new medium. I continue that investment today (everyday).
I now work with a limited number of clients. With some I build them a affordable yet useful website and they only contact me when they want to add or change something. With others….they have a website (that I did not do) that needs attention and they have either lost contact or confidence with their webmaster. I do small corrective work or major re-working of their content and perhaps add functionality. To a very small group I act as a free-lance Marketing Manager. I handle everything a staff manager would do but on an “as needed” basis.
I started in the early “70s” with 35mm photography and changed to digital in the late “90s”. I work with some customers to get photos of their product line. The end results are photographic files tailored to the need. Sometimes the client will have older photos that I can scan…photoshop…and re-purpose. I call the older pre-internet stuff “tribal knowledge” and I have had some very good luck bringing that into their digital brand.
I work alone but network with several talented designers and coders. This allow me to reach out, if I need, to talent beyond my own without the overhead of an agency. I am able to deliver excellent work that is affordable to small to medium size companies. I enjoy helping develop the web strategy and then building the tactical tools to make it happen.
