Hello! My name is Stanley and I am a young professional living in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
I recently graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Strategic Communication and a double minor in Marketing and Graphic Design from the American University in Washington DC.
My business background comes from 5 years of experience working on marketing initiatives for a number of innovative organizations. I fell in love with startups after spending a summer working for Uber and executing a massive grassroots marketing campaign. (Fun fact: Uber isn’t the only ride-sharing app I’ve worked with).
Other organizations I have worked with include a top experiential marketing firm, a groundbreaking financial technology startup, an award-winning investigative reporting newsroom, a trade association for software developers and a national non-profit campaign advocating for millennial rights on capitol hill.
Suffice to say it’s been a busy five years. Some might call me a workaholic but I love what I do! I thrive on taking on challenges and learning new skills.
Everyone knows the importance of SEO. 93% of online experiences start with a search and most users choose don’t make it past the top two or three options. Yet many are unfamiliar with local SEO and are surprised to learn of the potential impact it could have on their businesses.
It’s undeniable that in recent years the e-commerce industry has grown immensely with the dominance of Amazon and Alibaba. Yet many may be surprised to learn that brick and mortar stores still account for the majority of retail sales.
I specialize in building campaigns from the ground up using established and innovative marketing and design tactics. I also assist organizations with managing and optimizing existing campaigns and operations.
