Online marketing through design, development, and a pinch of SEO
Knowing how to properly manage a brand with today's digital platforms not only requires targeted content, but also requires technical proficiency to truly be effective. In the past I have lead a series of successful campaigns converting online interactions into online transactions. Using Analytics, Insights, and various media I have been able to continually adapt and create stimulating content with a measurable return on my clients' investment. Beyond this my technical know-how has allowed me to take advantage of emerging trends and maintain clients' relevance within this ever-changing medium. Below are a few examples of my successes. Hover over for details and click preview to view each project.
In order to better cater to the widening mobile market I introduced All-Pro Science to QR codes. Rather than lead these customers to the standard website, I created a separate standalone mobile version. This gave mobile viewers quick links to information most commonly requested online. Since implementation they have seen a surge in mobile visitors and the bounce rate for these devices has decreased by over 15%. Click the preview link for a working example of the mobile site.
After running a poll asking for fan feedback I found a large majority of potential All-Pro Science customers wanted an easier way to compare the ingredients within APS products. To satisfy their requests I created a Facebook application using Flash (as2) and embedded it with FBML so that it could be accessed easily within the Facebook platform. The application was praised by APS customers and their Fan Page experienced an immediate spike in new "likes". Preview
This video was shot and produced solely to go viral. Before production I researched upcoming events to find trending keywords within the MMA and fighting community. Come production time I knew exactly what to ask Tito Ortiz and what topics would potentially draw in the most views. After launching the video my team and I also posted it on both boxing and MMA forums, websites, and blogs. The results were phenomenal. Within the first 3 days the video grossed over 2,000 views and by the end of the first week that amount more than doubled. Currently the video has well over 25,000 views and exceeds 150 comments.

Since day one, email marketing has been a huge revenue driver for All-Pro Science; However before I stepped in email blasts were disconnected and often lacked cohesive branding. To enhance their effectiveness I coded a customized template which included links to popular queries on our website as well as links to our social media platforms. As a result the click through rate nearly doubled and email traffic began to spill over to the rest of their social media websites.

Setting up and customizing a template for a Wordpress blog is easy. The real work here was figuring out how to yield the biggest return from each post and how to continue to do so even after I was gone. To do this I added a custom widget that shows keywords and trends within the blog's dashboard. I then taught the staff how to create targeted articles using these statistics and how to properly tag images and posts to help search engine visibility. The results so far have been very promising and All-Pro Science has seen a surge from organic search engine traffic and comments.
September 2011 Tito Ortiz and Jenna Jameson were both at the Olympia Bodybuilding Convention in Las Vegas to launch the Punishment Nutrition brand. Since many of their fans could not be there in person, I set up a Ustream account so we could broadcast live from the event. I then embedded the stream on the Punishment Nutrition website which allowed fans to log on, watch and ask Tito and Jenna questions in real time.

In this section you will find some print work I have done in the past. For each project I worked hand in hand with the client and printer to find the appropriate material and process for each job.
