Our Digital Strategist plays a key role in helping our clients meet their goals. He’s recently celebrated 6 months on our team. We wanted him to share more about himself with you below.
Little high, little low, little hey, little ho! I was asked my favorite greeting and that is it. I am our Digital Strategist at The Marketing Squad. Here’s a little more about me.
Firstly, I majored in Graphic Design in high school. Yes, a major in high school. That’s what got me started in the digital realm.
From there, I attended JCC and IUS for graphic design. At the same time, I was getting more experience in the workplace than what I was paying for it in school. For this reason I dropped out early and started interning at a local digital agency. The owner had “taken me under his wing,” per say, and I learned ALL things digital marketing through that experience.
I then used my skills and sharpened them in the non-profit realm for a few years, while still doing internships at other small agencies. Lastly, I went from the non-profit sector back into the “business world” for another agency. I was there for a few years and then got recruited to be a part of The Squad!
To sum it up, I’ve always been a multitasker with many passions, especially in the digital space, which makes me well-suited for my role at The Squad. Some of my team members have even referred to me as a Swiss Army Knife.
A Glimpse at the Work of a Digital Strategist
I’m the creepy guy in the dark room who follows everything you do online. Or like when you Google something, or talk near your mobile devices, and then it serves you all the ads about what you just talked about. That was me! (insert evil, maniacal laugh) Just kidding…
I am a Digital Strategist, so when a business owner wants to meet certain goals, I research the tools and techniques needed to do that, such as using Google Search ads. Then, I execute on that. The role involves many things, just like your goals often do, and I will just leave it at that!
My favorite thing about being at The Squad would probably be the people I work with. It’s easy to work when you have a good support system with easy collaboration. In addition, the core values of the company, as a whole, cultivates a breeding ground for creativity, productivity, and just plain heart. (That was deep… you want me to say that louder for the people in the back?)
Here’s a Little More about Chris
My favorite food would be either breakfast food or chicken n’ dumplings. My favorite person is my wife, Jessica! We have been married for over 4 years and still going strong. There’s so much more for me to say about her that this blog would become quite extraordinarily long, so I will keep it at a minimum. She is amazing. We have 3 dogs – Dobby, Peaches, and Stormy.
**insert drumroll** and last but not least… we have a BABY ON THE WAY! #August4
In summary, I’m thankful for a lot of things. I like being creative as well as thinking technically. I have a pretty good combo of left and right brain. I’d love to talk with you if you have any questions about The Squad or how we can collaborate together to grow your business.
