What would you name as your top strengths as an entrapenuer?
I have over 15 years of experience in online marketing and advertising. In the past decade, I have become an expert on digital strategy, social media marketing, and business development. I have a strong understanding of effective integrated marketing, E-commerce, and online lead generation strategies.
What is your experience in the field?
Currently, I am the Director Digital Marketing Strategy for 1-800-PublicRelations, Inc. "1800pr" .
1-800-publicrelations Inc is an On-Demand communications marketing services range from single media hits to an award-winning brand strategy that delivers on projects & events. We help brands, emerging growth companies and non-profits meet business objectives.
Notably, I am the Co-Founder of OfferAll. Based out of Los Angeles, we are a national mobile communication company with clients ranging from national pizza chains realtors , lead gen companies , professional sports teams and more. We provide our clients with the ability to connect directly with their clients through the most important device any of them have, their mobile phone. iPhone, iPad, smartphone apps, mobile websites, SMS, MMS, mobile video, are all tools we use to deliver our partners content to their customers in real-time.
The versatility and necessity of the mobile phone as an all encompassing device insures that it is with our consumers or possible consumers wherever they may go. Our company teaches brands to interact with these people and their devices in every communication, whether it be online, at the point-of-sale, through traditional media, on social networks, or even on a coupon. Our strategies aggressively build databases of customers that we can then push messages to at exactly the time when we know they are making the buying decision and with a 97% read-rate.
The key component lies in the fact that each and every mobile promotion provides a measurable Return-on-Investment that is easy to quantify. Because mobile marketers continue to turn in case study after case study showing redemption/call-to-action rates of 7% or better, it is no surprise that 89% of major brands have some type of mobile marketing in their budget for 2011.
