DAN JONES (ME)
SCIENTIST -> BLOGGER/CREATOR -> DIGITAL MARKETER
Working with a freelance professional means working with a real person. We’re going to be partners, so let’s take some time to get to know each other? Okay, I’ll start.
# Step 1
SCIENTIST -> DIGITAL NOMAD
I started my career as a research scientist in the biotech industry (please excuse the cheesy lab photo). As It turns out, science and marketing have a lot in common. Lots of process design, experimenting, interpreting and understanding data – I love it.
But science moves painfully slow, and I always wanted to see the full impact of work. Beyond my immediate experiments.
Digital marketing lets me do just that. Whether it’s a new website build or content series, I get to create tangible online entities and implement strategies to grow and evolve them.
But I didn’t become a web professional overnight. It started with a yoga blog as I was travelling the world…
# Step 2
WEB DESIGNER, SEO & CONTENT CREATOR (+YOGI)
I first started my love affair with web design by building a blog around my favourite hobby. Yoga. Honestly, it’s a little embarrassing to see now (yes, it’s still live) and the design is very dated, but it’s been my trusty training ground/testing site for many years.
Through the blog I found my writing voice, and to date my best blog post has been shared almost 20 thousand times. Plus, the site still ranks in the top 5 for its main keyword “yoga for men”.
# Step 3
DIGITAL ADVERTISING SPECIALIST
Working within a leading e-commerce agency, I honed my skills in the art-form that is digital advertising on Facebook, Amazon and Google. Invited to train at Amazon HQ in London, I was able to directly learn tactics and strategies to put our brands at the top.
Managing 500+ digital Amazon campaigns for over 30 of the leading tech brands in the world (Epson, Huawei, Honor and more,) I averaged 1000% ROI with a spend in excess of £30,000 per month.
BLACK LOTUS MARKETING
Since launching Black Lotus Marketing I’ve had the pleasure of building websites and marketing campaigns for a wide range of fantastic brands and individuals. If you’ve read this and it sounds like I can help, why not drop me a message and find out?
