Hire Garrett French, Conversation Marketer

About me, from folks I’ve worked with in the past:

“As our media planner/buyer it felt like I was cheating when I worked with Garrett. His unique and creative thinking is always 2 steps ahead of the industry and our clients saw the direct benefit of those efforts. In a time when every agency tries to talk about viral and community marketing, Garrett’s ideas and understanding of the clients goals makes the others look novice.”
Geoff Lamm – Manager of Interactive Media, MarketSmart Advertising

“Garrett is a forward thinking person who is always sees outside of the box. I worked with Garrett for almost two years and he was a collegue who offered great insight, advice and practical knowledge to many different areas of interactive marketing.”
Cord Silverstein, Director of Engagement Marketing, capstrat, author of MarketingHipster

“[Garrett’s] focus on search optimization and social media marketing allows him to identify unique marketing opportunities and help clients take advantage of cutting-edge campaigns.”

My Story:
In 2001 I began researching and writing about search marketing tactics for an email newsletter called WebProNews. We had 1,000,000 readers and – at the most – received 10 email responses from our readership when we sent out our newsletter.

Then I offered my readers a “Free Web Site Review by WebProNews.” This offer generated over 450 responses in the first day.

I continued to find ways to meaningfully connect with audiences and leveraged our reader interactions to increase open rates and site traffic, make content creation easier, fuel the growth of our forum to over 50,000 members and land more advertisers.

Where I Am Today:
I bring this lesson in leveraging community for business to all of my marketing projects with my partner Adam Schultz and our new company, Bold Interactive. Our clients include a tool affiliate site, a lemon law firm, a turbo kit vendor, a remote control toy manufacturer, a real estate marketing services company and other advertising agencies.

Publications:
I’m a regular contributor and participant for Search Engine Journal and the Search Marketing Standard blogs.

In addition I’ve been published in Search Engine Guide and WebProNews.

Recent Successes in Conversation Marketing:
Through combining blog marketing and email newsletter strategies with community interactions I’ve helped one client increase links in Yahoo from 750 to over 4,000 in just four weeks. Blog marketing for the site now accounts for over 25% of total traffic, the site has gone from 350 pages indexed to over 2,000 and has seen a 300% increase in organic search traffic.
