My (not so) Secret Identity

Experience

BELLIN Treasury Services

How do you take web from zero to hero?

Mar. 2014 – Present

When I began with BELLIN their website wasn’t converting a single lead. They had no idea where traffic was coming from, what it was doing once on page, nor how to increase it. I was brought in to engage in a content strategy and increase traffic to the site, specifically from North America.

  • When I started they brought in 1000 search visits per month. When I left, it was 1000 per week.
  • We increased overall traffic 400%, and North American traffic by 1800%.
  • The website had transformed from being responsible for no leads to being the largest lead source in the company, bringing in over $15 million USD.

VKI Studios / Cardinal Path

Small town boy makes good

Mar. 2009 – Jun. 2012

I like to make a nuisance of myself. Soon after being hired I began replying to the president’s public emails with corrections – fixing poor language, typos and spelling. The vice president thought this was hilarious and put me in charge of editing the VKI Studios blog. Within three years I’d been promoted from Marcom assistant to Head of Communications, my blog was nominated for three web analytics achievement awards, our client base had expanded from dentists and realtors to Fortune 500 companies, and we had merged with two other companies in our field to form Cardinal Path.

  • Produced a 1500x increase in active readers
  • Increased email campaign open rate by 30% to and click per send
    by 40%
  • Organized re-design of Cardinal Path website resulting in an 80%
    increase in traffic
