Good question. My career started first as Christian Griffith, online consultant for the Naples Daily News where I helped the Scripps-Howard newspaper to be the first online newspaper in the southern gulf coast region. I developed a few interesting, useful and best of all, profitable online components for the media company back in 1997.
Then came Christian Griffith, New Media Producer at Freebairn and Company in Atlanta, developing websites and flash animations for advertising clients in the B2B and B2C space.
After that was Christian Griffith, Chief Technology Officer for Encore Tickets, an Atlanta-based secondary-market event ticket seller. We sold ourselves to RazorGator Interactive in 2005, and I hung around until 2008, before jumping back into the exciting and dynamic world of Atlanta advertising.
Now, I find my work passion in developing Internet Marketing strategy, with a heavy focus on SEM, social, and SEO strategies, to help clients dominate the industry and crush competition.
