I have been asked by a lot of people what made me want to start my own company and what I am hoping will happen now that I am a business owner and future angel investor.
A number of people have asked me what my reason was for starting my own company and the answer is simple, I believe that with my skills and experience I can honestly help people become successful and I want to help people succeed. I truly believe in the statement, "blesses to be a blessing" and that God has given me the ability to be creative and design websites as well as branding and marketing strategies and that I should use these abilities to help others.
My background comes from a wide range of marketing background. My first job was a telemarketer in high school. I made cold calls trying to get people to sign up for a free basement inspection for EverDry Basement Waterproofing. From there I was a trade show demonstrator for a home improvement company specializing in bathrooms and kitchens all while in high school.
Once I got to college I did a number of internships and always had a job while in school. I continued to be a trade show demonstrator my freshman year. My sophomore year I did an internship for University Directories as a Local Sales Manager selling yellow page ads in my university student & faculty directory. My junior year I did an intern at the university I attended in their graphics design department designing print materials for the school. Finally my senior year I did an intern at a local car dealership managing all their on and offline marketing tactics including: social media, email marketing, web design, newspaper ads and other online marketing tactics to help generate leads for their sales team.
Upon graduating college, I took a job at a local electric control panel manufacturing company and managed their eCommerce website as well as online marketing.
After 11 months had past, I moved to Raleigh, North Carolina where I worked for a software development company managing their online marketing strategies including: social media, email marketing, SEO and PPC for a little over a year. I have some marketing agency experience and my last job before starting Innovating Creations was working for a wireless modem reseller where I redeveloped their 4 companies' websites and repositioned their online marketing strategies which over a 6 month period cut their marketing budget in half while at the same tripling their website traffic.
The main reason I started Innovating Creations is that I really enjoy developing and designing websites as well as setting up marketing strategies and budgets to promote business online. I have always enjoy being creative and learning new ways of lead generation promotion.
In the end running a business is very simple once you figure out your talents and abilities, you simply find a problem in the world that you can offer a solution that provides an income, while at the same time enjoying what you are doing, it's that simple.
As for the future, I hope to continue to grow this company and offer more services that can help more people become successful. It is my hope to build a national brand that is recognized by the industry and an inspiration for other hopeful business dreamers.
