SALES & MARKETING CONSULTANT
Hi, I’m Dave Michael, and I am a online marketer that helps businesses be found on the web. I am graduate of CSUS Sacramento with a marketing concentration, and have been in sales and marketing since the days of pay phones and beepers. I’ve seen a lot of changes, but nothing as exciting as the mobile on-line, socially connected world we live in today. Most people do not realize what massive change that occurred in the mid 2000’s with the perfect storm that started with WordPress, then Facebook, the iPhone, YouTube, Twitter, and Yelp, all created within a few years of each other. That was only 10 years ago and the entire marketing world has changed fundamentally. Has your website? Someone defiantly once said, “I don’t do social media”…he’s now out of business. You can’t keep marketing like it’s 2006.
I have lived in Northern California most of my life, and have made Placer County my home since the late 90’s. I specifically love Rocklin, and want to help the local businesses in my area with their web presence. Some experts say internet marketers should focus on a niche for the greatest impact, and while I agree with that business strategy, I’ve decided to make my niche a location…right here in awesome South Placer. So if you’re lucky enough to live here and need help with your online marketing let’s discuss it over a cup of joe. Initial consultations are always free.
