My Journey from
Marketing Consultant to Marketing Blogger
I'm one of those weird people who really, really enjoy what I do. I love marketing so much that it transformed from just a nine-to-five career into a hobby and passion.
MarketerDoug.com started as more of a consulting gig for me. I was able to land a few clients with Adwords and organic visibility in SoCal, but I wasn't happy exchanging my precious time for money. I was already working a full-time job (Marketing Director for a corporation) and time was slim between spending time with my wife, playing video games, traveling, and consulting on the side.
One evening, I had an epiphany – What if I stopped pushing my services as a a consultant and focused all of my efforts towards helping people become better marketers? I could take my insight and years of experience, bundle it up into blogs, guides, & how-tos, and give people the real actionable info they need to succeed at marketing their blog, business or website.
So I did, and here we are today! I publish free content regularly in the form of blogs, guides, tips, and how-tos. The more people I help and connect with great tools and actionable marketing tips, the more I succeed.

A personal look at
As a marketing professional, I've spent the last 12 years helping restaurants, musicians, marketing agencies, medical professionals, and small business owners from a variety of industries accomplish their marketing goals.
Over the years I have authored several courses and resources to guide business owners down the internet marketing path – many of which are available here on my website.
I'm also a proud alumnus of Brigham Young University's Marriott School of Management, where I earned my degree in Business Management with an Emphasis in Marketing.
