After consulting with clients of all sizes over the last decade, I’m ready to take on a larger role at one company. Helping companies to launch marketing plans is rewarding, but I’d love to see the results of the strategies I implemented, and evolve them as the brand grows.
As of now, I’m ready to explore full-time employment with a savvy company that knows the value of a smart content marketing strategy to drive brand advocacy and real business growth.
What I’m Looking For
A customer-centric company. A company that understands the power of Word of Mouth and content marketing who is looking for an expert to help it build digital and offline programs that will forge deeper connections with its customers that drive real business growth. A company that has the culture in place, but needs someone to design the strategy and build the structures that will allow it to reach its digital marketing goals. Or an agency that has a focus on building content strategies for clients with the customer as the focus. A company that’s active on social media and with digital marketing, but isn’t seeing it ‘all come together’ and that needs someone to build out a comprehensive strategy that drives actual business results.
What’s in It for You?
My 10+ years of experience using digital channels, social media, and content marketing to build clients’ brands (as well as my own). You can read selected client testimonials here.
My established expertise and thought leadership building a customer-centric brand. I literally wrote the book on cultivating brand ambassadors: Think Like a Rock Star: How to Create Social Media and Marketing Strategies That Turn Customers Into Fans.
My skills creating and implementing digital strategies, content marketing campaigns, and social media marketing plans, as well as crafting brand ambassador and influencer outreach programs, boosting online engagement, and more.
I will help you to succeed
One of the first questions I ask every client is “What will success look like for you?” This is done to frame the conversation around results, not tactics, so we can create a strategy that drives meaningful business results—not just social media vanity metrics.

The Right Company for Me Will Embrace Remote Work
Any position I’d consider must be remote/virtual. Unfortunately, relocation is not an option. Based on your location (especially if its within driving distance) some on-site visits may be possible.
Job Titles That Would Be a Good Fit
Sr. Content Marketing Manager
Director of Digital Strategy
Director of Content Marketing
Head of Social Media/Strategy

I will be happiest in a position that gives me direct input into your company’s digital and content strategies. That’s almost where I can be of the most benefit to your company as I’m a pretty smart guy when it comes to crafting world-class content and marketing strategies!
UPDATE: Over the past few months, the majority of my search has focused on two types or classes of positions:
Content Marketing Manager
Director of Content Strategy or similar
Most of my focus has been on pursuing Content Marketing Manager positions simply because they typically are more open to working remotely. With the Content Marketing Manager positions that I’ve discussed with companies, the concerns from most companies is that I am ‘overqualified’ and that I will ‘want a higher salary than we can afford’. The ‘overqualified’ comment is typically code for ‘we think you’ll want to leave us for a better job in a few months’. To address this concern, I will be happy to sign a contract with the right employer if that will help. Ideally, I would like to join a company at the Content Marketing Manager position, then long-term move up into a Director-level Content Strategy position as possible.
The other concern I typically hear from companies is that I will ‘want a higher salary than we can afford’. According to Glassdoor, the average annual salary nationally for a Content Marketing Manager is $68,000. I require at least $66,000. If your Content Marketing Manager position can pay at least that much, I’d love to talk to you about it. See? That was easy!
Know of a position at your company that seems like a good fit? Email me. While you’re at it, let me know how I can help you. Until I find the right full-time position, I’ll remain open to taking on additional clients who want to tap into the power of word of mouth marketing and build effective brand ambassador programs.
And please share this with your network: everybody knows someone who could use marketing help! Thank you very much!
