Brand Development, Web Site, Sponsorhip Marketing Program, PR, Plus Copy, Photography and Video Content
Made the web site more professional and provide a branded image so that sponsors could easily understand what this junior college "club" football program was about. It also conveyed the needs of the team and how sponsors could help support it within their community. From there it led to writing copy, taking pictures and developing video content that was used and shared by the players. I also developed a simple marketing plan for sponsors and materials for developing more interest from the media, community, player prospects and local high schools.
Provided Web Design, SEO, Online Marketing, Social Media Content, Competitive Research, SWOT Reports, Data Analysis and a two episodes on NEW DAY Northwest, a TV shows on King 5
Initial action included web site design and search engine optimization to improve its rank and organic traffic nationally. Next, was web optimization to improve localized SEO. This included a lot of new content, site redesign, partnering, linking and helping the owners understand the impact of their radio and newspaper advertising buys related to store/foot traffic and monthly sales. www.bedroomsandmore.com
We added TV media to the mix on King 5 Episode 1 and Episode 2. Also created a small business web site www.jandwmarketing.com. This family owned business was a joy to work for and they emphasized a culture that focused on providing the best customer service possible with quality products from natural mattresses, and organic bedding to solid wood furniture. As their YELP review shows - you can't go wrong. I recommend visiting their store in Seattle.
Provided eCommerce, Marketing, Sales, Branding and Business Development Services
Launched two products online, that were almost identical, except that the Sports version that had some Zinc Yeast in the formulation. Initial efforts included developing a business plan, clear product positioning, a detailed multi-million dollar budget and a marketing strategy for both products, targeting two different market segments.

Both web sites were built following the website structure created by the Swedish team to establish global brand continuity as seen here www.astareal.se. Mapped out a PR strategy and introduced strategic partnership opportunities while leveraging newsworthy studies, like the one conducted by the Gatorade Sports Science Institute.

“INNOVA Architects hired John to help us grow our presence through its: online websites, social media, brochures, mailers, and to build personal relationships that all together grow our business. John has been a dynamo of enthusiasm and is always full of new and good ideas. He has made a huge positive change in our company in all the areas for which we hired John to work. His prior experience was in product marketing, and while we are a professional service provider, John was able to bring a valuable and new perspective to how we should be marketing professional services, while at the same time quickly learning how we traditionally have marketed professional services. He adapted quickly, learning new methods and always pushed me hard to be bold and take new steps in new directions.
John definitely thinks like a business owner and like a true entrepreneur, always generating new ideas about how to grow the business and how to benefit our company and capitalize on our efforts. But, he understands the balance a CEO must maintain between financial investments into marketing efforts compared to the results it might produce. He is always positive and upbeat and able to adjust to the dynamics of up and down moments in a business. At times due to our own company limitations I felt that I was not able to take full advantage of what John had to offer. But even through that John has been happy to be a part of our company and especially to assist me in building and implementing the strategy to grow.
I enjoy John personally and professionally and know John has a huge amount of value to bring any company in which he is employed. I am so happy I hired John and would do it all over again. It was the right decision for us. Despite that fact, sometimes outside circumstances affect our business performance and alter our direction.
That has resulted in our inability to retain John. Therefore we offer our complete endorsement for John to any potential employer who wishes to expand business. John will bring you strategies, ideas, produce written copy, make personal introductions and help to implement the plan through to completion. He will work either in cooperation with the CEO, but if asked is happy to lead the effort independently. I remain happy to be called upon to reiterate in person my sincere endorsement for John Metselaar.” Paul M., CEO, www.innovaarchitects.com www.innovaindustrial.net www.innovahousing.net
“I had the opportunity to hire John at AstaVita Inc. to lead our efforts with regards to e commerce, branding, marketing and sales for our dietary supplement line. Selecting John was an easy decision for me as John has prior experience working for a dietary supplement company, along with very strong experience and demonstrated skills in building brands, managing and driving on line sales, along with web site development and management. While interviewing candidates to fill our open position it became very evident that John brings a unique combination of skills to the table that typically require the hiring of multiple people to obtain these talents. It was a pleasure working with John as he was all in and committed to what we needed accomplished and he worked tirelessly 24/7 in order to accomplish our goal to have a web site up and operational within 3-4 months. John strengths include a strong executive presence, strategic planning, branding along with earning the trust and respect of our team. I strongly recommend John for any VP or Director level opportunity in e-commerce, marketing and sales.” Bob O., General Manager, www.astavita.com
“John is an extremely conscientious professional who can operate very effectively at both strategic and tactical levels with equal poise and eloquence. His ability to build relationships is commendable and inspirational. John is a quick learner, a motivated self-starter and knows how to navigate almost any scenario to get the job done effectively without ruffling any feathers. In a large organization that is particularly difficult and John was able to do that very elegantly. His ability to think quickly on his feet and find solutions made him a very important member of our team because he was a problem solver. Unique skills that are hard to come by. “ Kumar S., CEO at White Space Healthcare Marketing. Previously, Group Director and VP at www.publicishealthcare.com www.cdwg.com
