Case Study: Aduro Marketing

About Aduro Marketing:

Launched Aduro Marketing (2009 to Present) to help organizations with project-based marketing and/or marketing consulting to establish best practices and strategies for digital marketing, lead gen, search, social, content marketing, multi-media and digital PR. Focused upon introducing sustainable processes and tools. Worked with clients in the enterprise software (Trintech), hospitality (La Quinta Inns and Suites) and architecture (Olicon Design) industries. In 2010, was hired by Trintech to transition to full-time employee and lead their digital marketing and public relations efforts.

The Challenge:

Many organizations suffer from a shortage of marketing budget or bandwidth. I launched Aduro Marketing to offer marketing project and consulting solutions to companies experiencing these problems. Perhaps a company has a large agency they have engaged, but simply cannot afford their services for a specific project, or the project falls outside of the scope for that agency's SOW. Or, more often than not, there is simply no one with the skills or time currently on their marketing team. That is where Aduro Marketing steps in.
