Nice to meet you. I'm Amanda, a digital marketing manager based in San Francisco.

With experience in B2B across agencies, a SaaS startup, and a financial services enterprise, I've seen how marketing supports efforts to sell and to scale. Here are the projects that showcase what I can do for you.

 

WEB & SEO

SpringhouseAMC.com

This site represents a business unit of Altisource, a financial services company. From requirements to development, the site launched in 4 months, a 25% shorter timeline than similar projects.

TechPRFirm.com

I developed a site that serves as a directory for PR firms. It acts as a backlink to support local SEO efforts for an agency aiming to rank for location-based queries.

 

CONTENT & STRATEGY

7 Products That Can Help You Close More Deals

Using SEO tools to identify the keywords and questions asked by our target audience, the marketers at Drift wrote blogs containing the answers. This became a larger content strategy targeting product marketing topics and refreshing outdated sales content to earn a first-page ranking within 6 months as an early-stage startup.

How Local Firms Compete with National Brands

The agency was tasked with assessing how content could differentiate a local shredding business in the presence of national brand names. Search data showed that localized phrases and questions around specific services were unanswered by the larger entity. A document of recommended keywords and topics gave the client strategic direction.

 

SEM & SOCIAL ADVERTISING

Facebook Advertising on a Budget

When an agency approached me on behalf of a client to evaluate their Facebook ad spend, there was a mismatch in audience engagement and business focus - photos of customers performed best organically, but the firm was investing in stock images. I restructured their spend to boost content that performed well and leveraged lookalike audiences to expand their network.

SEM to Boost a Brand

A new health supplement launched online without brand recognition. To test quickly and generate early wins, a combination of Google and Facebook advertising gave us direction. The best-performing tactics were a combination of striking visuals, influencer testimonials, and on-demand purchase options through chat bots and call centers.

 

AUTOMATION & LEAD GENERATION

The Deal-Winning White Paper

This white paper, written for a mortgage servicing audience, produced more qualified leads than any previous content initiative. It was the first touch point in the sales journey for a deal that closed within 6 months.

A Marketo Implementation...

...in 6 weeks. As the contract with Pardot came to a close, 50 forms and 2 dozen email and landing page templates were recreated. The new instance was set up and available for use with 1 day to spare thanks to my team of digital marketers and web developers.

 

MANAGEMENT

These are the resources that I find most useful when hiring, downsizing, and managing teams.

How to Give Frank Feedback

I used the tactic outlined in this video during a performance review to describe opportunities for the team member to reach their goals:

"When you [describe action}, the impact is [X] and next time it would be great to [desired outcome]."

The Heartbeat by Know Your Company

A twice monthly newsletter featuring quality content about how to create engaged teams and effective employees. Their outlines for meaningful 1-on-1 meetings helped my team discuss how to improve projects with more specificity.

 

If you'd like to work together, let's discuss what you're looking to build and how I can help.
