Every project and every client is different and should be treated as such. This is why I had to leave the cookie-cutter world of big box Internet marketing. I bring to each project my professional mix of salesmanship, operational/managerial experience, technical knowledge and SEO/SEM/SMM best practices. I do not merely want to manage your adwords account. I want to work with you to create the best marketing strategy for your budget and target audience. Please, do not hesitate to reach me directly. I've put together a FAQ which should help you choose the best marketer for your business or project. FAQ: Q: Will you help me manage my existing account(s)? A: Absolutely, I work with seasoned DIYers and total newbies. Q: What industries do you work with? A: Most of my clients have been attorneys, medical professionals, financial planners, & people selling a unique product or service. I am extremely interested in learning about new verticals, so please don't hesitate to reach me. Q: Will you build my site? A: It depends on what you need. My real specialty is the budgeting, forecasting, implementation & management of marketing campaigns, as you can imagine after years in this industry I have learned how to build a nice site, but it is not my forte. Send me a message about what you are looking for and I'll let you know if it is within my scope. Q: So you'll use my existing site? A: Yup! Or help you build one, or help you find a designer, remember every client and business is unique. Q: Do you do social media? A: Indeed. Social media is a very viable piece of the puzzle. However, like any online marketing tool you shouldn't put all your eggs in one basket. My goal is maximizing your visibility per dollar and one of the best ways to do that is a complete social media presence. Q: Do you do reputation management? A: Yes and No. There are a few big national agencies charging big money and promising to fix your online reputation. You should exercise caution before committing a large budget to one of these companies. Let me know your situation and I'd be happy to evaluate your best course of action. Q: Do you work on weekends? A: I work 8 days a week, twice on Sundays. Q: Where are you located? A: The great state of North Carolina. Q: Do you build Apps? A: I most certainly can build you an app for both android and IOS devices, however as with website design, I focus on marketing management. Furthermore, it's of my opinion that most small and medium sized business are better served by a well designed, optimized, mobile website. Those seem to be the most frequent questions asked of me. Don't hesitate to reach me directly with any other inquiry. Best Regards, Shawn

The one thing that has never changed throughout my career (in an industry that is ever-changing) is my dedication to achieve simplicity, innovation, and results. I started my professional career in 2005, directly after college graduation. Utilizing a graphic and web design degree I began developing websites for small businesses around the country. It was during this time that I was introduced to the broader digital marketing landscape in the form of Search Engine Optimization (SEO), instructional design, and information architecture. This was exciting because topics like online marketing and user interfacing weren't being talked about when I was in school. I was able to take this knowledge, continue to grow it through education and experience (small business to Fortune 500 companies), and naturally flow into full branding and marketing initiatives, where I’ve been focused on building brands and companies ever since. Focusing on the overall principles outlined above (simplicity, innovation, results), I’ve found that any challenge can be identified and positive results achieved. Now, with a proven record, I continue to work with clients and companies on various initiatives across their brands to promote ongoing success.
