James Witkowski InboundMarketing Boise Idaho

Inbound Marketing

Well designed sites earn the attention of customers and make it easy to be found. I focus on marketing strategies that create quality content that pulls people to your website, company and product, where they naturally want to be. My goal is to align the content on the site with the customer’s interests and naturally attract inbound traffic that can then be directed to sales funnels and email lists.

I enjoy mountain biking, ATV riding, camping, hiking, photography, and many other outdoor activities. I moved to Boise in 2014 with my family and we have loved the many opportunities to enjoy nature and all of the spectacular trails and recreational systems. I also spend time reading history and fiction and I am a big fan of college sports.

In addition to serving on the corporate board, I worked as a part of a Scrum team that included 3 other managers. We became quite proficient at “statistical process control” and we met regularly to measure what was being done, how well and how we could improve upon what we were doing. Our goal was to be constantly getting better and we did. We sold specialty lumber all over the world from a remote location and maintained top search engine rankings for all of our species and products.

We integrated an enterprise wide digital and mobile strategy that started with our website and brought our customers all the way through our sales process digitally. We designed and developed an award winning mobile app that did complex math for our customers and kept our sales staff connected and available at all times.
