Instructor Biography

I am the author of "Stand Out: A Simple and Effective Online Marketing Plan For Your Small Business." After spending nearly 15 years working with large (high traffic) Silicon Valley brands like Nolo, Caring, helping hundreds of small business owners with their online marketing and advertising, I started my current company: Geek-Free Marketing, Inc.

The mission of Geek-Free is simple: to help small business owners and online entrepreneurs like you rapidly get more customers, qualified less and traffic online using proven and simple to implement strategies.

On a daily basis, we gather the best and most current strategies in online marketing, social media, blogging and education-based content marketing, and distill them into concise, simple actionable chunks, offered through blogs, videos and courses.

Working with small business owners brings me great joy and has become my life's passion. Second only to hanging out with my family: Liz, Owen, Maddy and Parker.

What Reddit AMAs Teach Us
About Marketing

Online marketing strategies can include traditional outbound marketing tactics as well as more modern inbound approaches, but regardless of how you handle online promotion, it's important to keep adapting and improving your approach to maintain effective communication with your audience. Sometimes the best way of broadening your marketing approach is to examine how successful marketing is accomplished in less conventional places. Reddit's popular Ask Me Anything subreddit (r/iAMA) is the perfect example of how "brands" (in this case, personal brands) can productively interact with their audiences and experience promotional benefits while also providing the value readers are looking for. We analyzed some of the most popular recent AMAs to determine what makes them so engaging and what marketers overall can learn from the exchange.
