Matt Lodge: Digital Marketing Analyst

WHO AM I?

I am a Digital Marketing Analyst at Seafoam Media. It’s my job to convert measurable data into actionable results for our clients.

MY MISSION AT SEAFOAM:

I want to ensure that our clients have every advantage possible in a competitive digital landscape. My mission is to use data-driven approaches to create a seamless marketing plan that grabs customers, no matter how they’re searching or browsing.

WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO:

I’ve always loved solving problems. Diving into data and numbers to find ways to move the needle for our clients creates unique challenges and gives me the opportunity to find new solutions to age-old problems.

MY QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE:

Prior to joining Seafoam Media, I worked at a direct marketing agency in New York City for 4 years. I learned classic methods for reaching customers and growing brands.

I also worked for the largest online chess website, Chess.com, for 4 years. I worked extensively on growing our online presence along with managing our analytics for our streaming video content.

IN MY FREE TIME…

I play a lot of chess, despite being deeply mediocre at it. I’m in a bowling league, despite being deeply mediocre at that, as well. I love spending time with my fiance and my dog, which I am fantastic at.

Lauren Kruczyk: Client Success Manager

WHO AM I?

I build & maintain relationships with my clients while keeping the team organized and timely with their tasks. I make sure my clients are well taken care of and are always "surprised and delighted" by my team. 

MY MISSION AT SEAFOAM:

To maintain a graceful and professional presence while going above and beyond to both make clients happy and collaborate with the team in a positive manner. Basically, to be awesome at my job and continue learning throughout this journey I have been lucky to embark upon.

WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO:

I love interacting with people, understanding the dynamics between clients' and Seafoam's ultimate goals, and managing team tasks so that we are all working together to adhere to the philosophies set in place by Seafoam. I want to be the bridge that helps lead everyone safely to the other side. :-)

MY QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE:

I have experience in digital marketing, content writing, coding, and client relations. I believe my plethora of experience is vital in working to be a successful and vital addition to my clients' teams.

IN MY FREE TIME…

I spend time with my puppy Piper, Roku & chill, cook spicy things, write "stuff," read memoirs, watch horror movies, hike when I am lucky enough to be in the mountains, travel (ultimate goal: Machu Picchu in 1 year + Belize!), and enjoy being an "amateur photographer."

WHO AM I?

I am one our team's Digital Marketing Analysts! I love digging into the numbers and watching my hard work in PPC and SEO pay off for our clients.

MY MISSION AT SEAFOAM:

To learn and test.  I want to learn as much about the digital space as possible so I can become a better strategist, analyst, and business partner.  I want to know more about your business and tell you what I know will help you achieve your goals.

WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO:

The media industry is ever changing.  Something new is being rolled out everyday; something that could help my clients soar.

MY QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE:

I started my career 4 years ago in paid media and have been learning about new trends and methods ever since!

WHY I LOVE WORKING AT SEAFOAM:

I'm excited to work for a company who has a relaxed, trusting, hungry, and dedicated atmosphere.

IN MY FREE TIME…

I love to re-watch my favorite tv shows.  Sometimes while I do this, you will find me tapping into my creative side with some acrylic paints or mimicking some drawings on sketchpad.

Seafoam’s Professional New Year’s Resolutions for 2019

By Seafoam Media
Seafoam Spotlight

Welcome to 2019!

Not only does the start of a New Year allow us to look back on the past and learn from the steps we’ve taken, it also empowers us to look forward and make larger strides toward progress in the year ahead.

Here are just some of the Seafoam team’s professional New Year’s resolutions for 2019:

I look forward to completing the first version of our new marketing software that transforms the way we innovate and communicate with our clients.

I think in 2019, my personal goal is to take Seafoam to the next level (with the help of some people WAY smarter than me. Looking at you Nikki and Brian). I think this coming year is all about professional growth and creating interesting solutions. Last year, as we bumped into challenges, we looked for existing solutions to help solve our problems. 2019 will be the year that we make our own solutions, not only in terms of software but in how we handle everything we do. I hope to help the team stretch their creative muscles beyond anything we have ever done before to try new things and create cool stuff.

In 2018, I was lucky enough to meet a partner in crime who would help Seafoam take our video content strategy above and beyond previous iterations. This year, I really want to put our creativity and our new equipment to the test. We have some cool video projects in the pipeline for 2019, and we can’t wait to show them off!

My broad professional New Year’s resolution doesn’t change much from year to year. I just want to constantly stay on top of digital trends and continue to learn new tactics, software, programming languages, etc. to make Seafoam the best it can be.

This year I want to dedicate more time to working with cutting edge tools and data to make sure our clients’ sites are providing the best possible user experience.

This year, I want to be more intentional about my professional development, whether it’s taking notes on marketing best practices or spending time reflecting on what’s worked and what hasn’t in my content writing.

I plan to dedicate more time to professional development, such as taking the time to read more books on sales and sales relationships and attending more networking events around the St. Louis area.

I want to be more confident and assertive in the things I know. I also want to be more analytical in my role, meaning I do more research on the “why” behind my work, in addition to being creative.

My goal for this year is to become a more valuable resource to both the team and our clients. I want to run out of questions for Brian and have answers to everyone else’s questions in my continuing quest to develop professionally.
