Hey there! I am Krista. Nice to meet you.
I am a wife, mom to three amazing little boys, a marketing geek, internet marketer, social media manager and entrepreneur living in central Ohio. While most people spend their free time watching tv or golfing, I spend mine reading or working on my business or my clients’ businesses.
Since 2001 I have been actively involved in marketing and promotion. Most of my early work involved Fortune 100 companies and real estate developers. In 2004 I went rouge and went out on my own as a freelancer. I have since worked with everyone from Olympic athletes to million-dollar privately owned companies. Most of my recent work (post-2006) has been completed virtually without ever meeting my clients face-to-face. I have worked with hundreds of clients spread over four continents (fun factoid: most of my clients’ businesses are located in California, Australia or London). I have written hundreds of press releases, thousands of articles and blog posts and built dozens of websites, both for myself and my clients. I have successfully promoted my clients to 6 and 7 figure businesses and have built my own 6 figure business doing so.
I hold dual B.S. Degrees in Marketing & Communications and Business Administration with a Public Relations focus from Franklin University in Columbus, Ohio.
You’ll often find me curled up with my Kindle reading the latest marketing or social media book. You might say I am a marketing geek. I love keeping up to date on the hottest trends and strategies in the marketing and internet marketing worlds.
I love designing. Logos, business cards, flyers, billboards, tshirts, decals and other web and print designs are a thrill to me. But, all of that is so much more fun when I get to develop a website around it. I have build hundreds of websites over the years, mostly using wordpress (this website is wordpress) and have started using ecommerce platforms like BigCommerce and Shopify in the last year or so. I have used my design skills to build my t-shirt business and my social media skills to promote it’s Facebook page to over 20,000 Facebook fans in just over a year.
Photography is my outlet. Imagining a photograph and watching it materialize in my camera while wading through 5 feet of water is fun and exciting and different. I use my photography skills to promote my projects and no longer accept photography clients.
