In my experience, every startup needs some subset of the following marketing deliverables:
- corporate or product video
- press releases/PR program/media outreach
- branding & creative design
- lead generation/demand generation
- corporate pitch/slide template
- investor pitch
- web analytics program
- social media campaigns
- email list building & campaigns
- event management
- printed collateral
- good beer (some people may not consider this a strict marketing deliverable, but I like to include it)
Fortunately, I do all of this. I’ve been building websites since 1995, when Netscape 1.0 was the standard browser, and driving successful marketing programs for 15+ years. I know Google Analytics and Google Adwords inside and out, and I can produce a plethora of deliverables independently. I’ve created more PowerPoint and Keynote decks than I can count (“they said there’d be no math”). I also have a great network of trusted vendors, ready to turn your requests into high-quality, polished results. I completely understand the budget constraints of startups and young companies.

(The real scoop)
I have a degree in Philosophy and I don’t regret it. However, my friends have teased me that the only reason SCU invited me to come back and speak is because I’m “the one” with a job and a philosophy degree. I’m a fan of big cities, Calvin and Hobbes, grocery delivery service, Nespresso, backgammon, Harlan Coben books, and dogs on the couch. I read the actual newspaper each morning.
I’m a technology geek and early adopter. I bought my first iPhone upon launch in 2007, and have a ridiculous number of tech devices at home: Roku, Apple TV, TiVo (x4), Amazon Fire TV, Nikon DSLR, MacBook Air (x2), Chromebook (x2), iMac (x3), iPad, iPad mini, iPod, iPod nano, FlipCam, Lookcie, Fitbit, Jambox, Jawbone UP, Bose headphones, Kindle (x6), Roomba (x3), Eco Reco e-scooter…hmm. I wonder why my 401(k) isn’t growing more quickly.
I love getting immediate, quantifiable results from marketing efforts in the form of web traffic, sales leads, media coverage, and social media buzz.
