Two Degrees Marketing Team
Our company name was inspired by a number of factors, one of which was the play, “Six Degrees of Separation” the name implies that we are only six steps away from anyone on Earth by way of introduction.
Since we assist clients with social media marketing, it was only natural to chose a name that depicts the restructuring of our connections through social media-two degrees. With the advent of social media suddenly the number is reduced to approximately 4.67 degrees of separation and dropping. Future predictors of social media say that number will be shaved down closer to two in the near future. Communication by way of a human feed is a technological evolution with people flocking to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn in record numbers.
Lastly our company name denotes the importance that sustainability plays in all our lives concerning the environment, business practices and how we live our daily lives. At Two Degrees Marketing, we help our clients create and nurture relationships with people through innovative marketing solutions. With the use of search engine optimization, social media marketing, strategic marketing, and elegant web design solutions we assist our clients in expanding their global reach with a winning web presence.
I am the founder of Two Degrees Marketing. I have over 20 years experience assisting clients with business consulting, research, product development, marketing and sales analysis, business startup, and team building. In the last 7 years I have widened my scope of marketing to the web and have assisted clients with SEO best practices, viral marketing campaigns, copywriting, social media marketing, and blogging to help clients reach their marketing objectives.
Many of my clients have described me as a “business artist” because I can see the big picture and I enjoy creating new products and assisting companies and non-profits with their growth, goals, and dreams. I have a passion for learning; my background spans from developing cosmetic lines to creating a patent-pending medical technology for tracking symptoms for chronic health conditions. I encourage our team to widen their capacity to learn, grow, love, and deliver the best of themselves to our clients and life.
