I have over six years of experience in the content marketing and publishing industries. Over that span, I've had the privilege of variety, not only launching independent initiatives or working one-on-one with seeded and un-seeded startups, but also spearheading campaigns for some of the most renowned nonprofit organizations in the world.

LEAD Acquisition & Lead GENERATION

Much of my experience at GreaterGood.com involved both lead generation and lead acquisition, ensuring seamless transitions from outbound marketing to the next step of the user's journey within the ecosystem. This knowledge has helped me not only build an audience at Orson's Publishing, but to know what is and isn't working, and, more importantly, to know when and where to find solutions.

 

GiveawaYS

I played a crucial role in the Giveaway Program at GreaterGood.com for over two years, including an overhaul of the content management system itself. Because giveaways by nature are timely, there are no evergreen examples of GreaterGood giveaways to provide.

 

LANDING PAGES

I served as Creative Director of the Partner Pages program at GreaterGood.com, where unique experiences were created in order to actively inform the user of a pressing social issue being addressed by an affiliate. Additionally, I've created each landing page on Orson's Publishing. Below you'll find links to landing pages of which I'm most proud. 

 

Social media

While at GreaterGood.com, I optimized each piece of content I created for performance on social media channels. This included the brainstorming and execution of a 16-week A/B testing strategy for interactive content marketing packages. Additionally, I've run social media channels for Orson's Publishing since June 2016. Below you'll find links to Orson's Publishing social media feeds.
