Utilizing online strategies in a multilevel approach to take any business to new levels
Born and raised on the sandy white beaches of Clearwater, FL, James found his way to Charleston Southern University to play football. Doing what any college graduate with a degree in Kinesiology would do: He packed up and moved back to Florida to open a furniture store. And then a second location in North Carolina.
All of this business development led to his love for digital marketing. After selling more than a million dollars in wholesale furniture, he decided to sell both of his stores and move back to Charleston to pursue his passion for digital marketing.
As the Online Marketing Director for a top 100 furniture company, he helped all the store locations reach the same heights he previously attained. Despite having limited budgets and competing against some of the biggest names in the industry, James’ online marketing strategies raised each location’s online ranking from page five to the top three positions on Google organically and locally. This, in turn, equated to an extra 3 million dollars in wholesale for the company.
With first-hand experience of eighty hour work weeks for six months at a time, James is well aware of the daily grind of a small business owner. Additionally, having experience in a larger, multi-level company provides him a unique insight into the challenges a company might face–both online and offline.
A true renaissance man, James dabbles in the stock market, pours over business books, showers daily, and sleeps once a day. As an avid gym aficionado, he enjoys picking heavy things up and putting them back in the same spot. Furthermore, he always makes ONE trip when bringing groceries in and is rarely late (unless accompanied by his wonderful girlfriend). His only child is a sixty pound, tennis ball chasing canine by the name of Captain and James believes the best answer to any question is “world peace.”
