Digital Marketing has become a necessity for businesses small and large. With the advent of smartphones, social media, and ecommerce, even if you are a brick and mortar company, the biggest battle is competing for your piece of internet real estate. The truth of the matter is that online sales account for at least 50% of all sales in America. If you aren’t spending time developing your online presence, you are missing out on a significant amount of business.
Drew Blumenthal is a marketing expert who has experience working with numerous agencies and Fortune 500 businesses. Armed with the experience and knowledge gained from his previous career, the twenty-nine year old entrepreneur is now looking to offer his services to clients around the world.
Based in New York, Drew Blumenthal, aka Digital Drew, started his journey to entrepreneurship with several large agencies. Under their guidance, he was able to establish himself as a top-performer in the companies. Although he was extremely successful, he always felt that it was not the best fit. Quitting his job, he would launch his brand, Digital Drew, with one single client.
So far, Digital Drew has accomplished several milestones in his career. In just five years, he has grown his company to maintain over fifty clients. By focusing on long-term relationships and an excellent customer experience, he has been able to provide a very steady flow of business for his company. Despite some hiccups along the way, he has also grown his company to just under seven-figures in annual revenue.
Blumenthal credits his success largely to his parents. Since he was a young child, he was always inspired by their hard work ethic or “resiliency” as he likes to say. He is also driven by a desire to make his mom proud who he sadly lost to colon cancer when he was just 21 years old. As he continues to grow, he always looks back to them as inspiration for “competing with himself to be better and better.”
Although he has established himself as a leader worldwide, with clients in Canada, the UK, Dubai, and of course throughout America, he still feels that he has more to accomplish. “I want to help as many people as I can, so the more I grow my business, the more I can accomplish that.”
As he looks to the future, he would like to further his reach not only by offering digital marketing services, but also by helping others to learn how to run their business as well. Currently, he accomplishes this by offering free resources on his website, but he would like to grow his training programs as well as look to establish himself as a regular speaker at conferences and events around the world.
