I have an extensive background in marketing and advertising. After many years as an advertising account executive for print advertising at three newspapers and a magazine, I currently work as a freelance online marketing consultant. I am a Hubspot Certified Inbound Marketing Professional and offer services for setting up and managing inbound marketing practices with or without Hubspot sofware. I publish two blogs, one for my marketing services and one for my online store, www.whiteoakattic.com. I am a multi-channel ecommerce merchant with eBay, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bonanza and other sites.
I have experience setting up and using the advanced functions of Hubspot web based inbound marketing software and can manually set up inbound marketing practices using social media platforms, a website, blog, and email marketing tools. I have a deep understanding of all facets of inbound marketing including content creation using blogs, video, white papers, and other downloadable products and search engine optimization techniques.
I have setup my own online store using the Shopify shopping cart platform and can offer this service to other businesses interested in starting an ecommerce site or adding online shopping options to existing websites. Shopify integrates with Hubspot inbound marketing software.
I would like to work directly for a company who needs a fully developed online marketing strategy either with or without an online shopping cart system. I have the skills to create and develop content as well as familiarity with tools and services to promote the content and use it to increase search engine rankings.
I am also interested in working directly for a company in a combined role of marketing and sales. I have strong presentation skills including the use of Powerpoint, Slideshare and some experience with webinars. I was invited to speak on a marketing panel discussion at the 2010 WordCamp Birmingham - a blogging conference. I have one engagement for Spring of 2011 (on a Saturday) to speak at a church conference on the use of social media as a marketing and outreach tool.
I am a founding member and webmaster for Women of the Powergrid, a 501c3 non-profit organization which offers numerous opportunities for professional networking. I am the Social Media Director and webmaster for the Alabama Chapter of the National Speakers Association.
