Christopher Bell

Digital Marketing Manager

Sumary

Over the last decade, I've been helping companies develop winning digital strategies. I am proud to say that I've helped several $60M+ brands develop profitable strategies for online growth. Some of the accomplishments I'm proud of are: Building a $1.5M+(Net Profit) eCommerce business in the industrial space, launching a website for $40M+ consumer brand in 3 months, and building a social strategy for a consumer brand that has lead to a 500+% growth trend over 6 months.
Outside of my 'day job,' I'm proud to say that I've been working with private clients for nearly 10 years. Some of the client work I'm most proud of are: photographing wedding events for top Apple® Executives and NFL players, being published in national magazines such as First for Women Magazine, being an official photographer for the 2012 Democratic National Convention, and creating a 4K+ catalog of lifestyle images for a well known industrial brand electrical industry.
