You Can’t Pick Your Family, But You Can Choose Your Friends and Your Digital Marketing Agency. We Can Help with One of Those.
Selecting the right internet marketing agency is a big decision. They’ll play an important role in your company’s future.
Over the last decade, Digital Aptitude has become a top spot for companies wanting to boost their online presence. We’re staffed by a team of like-minded experts in Portland, Oregon that are closely connected by the medium they work in: the internet. (Hey, you are what you eat-sleep-drink, eat-sleep-think…)
Our founder’s vision for the company is as targeted and focused as one of his digital marketing strategies. Zeke Camusio, our CEO, has one overarching vision: He helps companies become successful online. Branding and marketing are a part of the strategy, but the endgame is financial success. To learn more about what we do and how well we do it, check out our FREE report.
Since 2001, we’ve served over 300 companies well. We’ve helped them become bigger, stronger and more successful. Most of them are strong enough to thrive their way through the biggest economic crisis in seventy years, while their competition filed for bankruptcy. So what are you waiting for? Let’s talk about how we can use digital marketing to help your company become more successful.
Digital Aptitude Team
Zeke Camusio, President
Our fearless leader, visionary, and the man who keeps the rest of us on a straight path, Zeke is a serial entrepreneur who’s started four successful companies in the last ten years. Zeke just might be the hardest-working guy in the digital marketing business, and he’s determined to make sure our clients get amazing results and value.
Entrepreneur Magazine named Zeke Camusio an “Internet Marketing Expert.” He’s the author of Amazon bestseller The Internet Marketing Bible and is also an online marketing columnist at some of the most reputable blogs in the industry, such as Search Engine Journal, Startup Nation, and Branding Magazine.
Born in Argentina, Zeke moved to the U.S. in 2003, and he plays just as hard as he works. In addition to being an avid reader and a tech geek on his own time, he’s a rugby player, a freestyle skier, and a world traveler who’s visited more than 100 countries.
Rory Kaluza, Digital Marketing Director
Rory is our social media genius, the kind of guy who knows the ins and outs of—and tons of people on—every social media site, from the big ones like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and LinkedIn to the up-and-comers like Pinterest, Flickr and Tumblr. (He even Tweets in his sleep, but we won’t say how we know that…) He’s been called a “profound role model and educator” in social media strategy, but he’s still pretty grounded. He has to be, because his hobbies include snowboarding and skateboarding. Rory also likes entrepreneurship—he’s one of the brains behind a popular street-fashion blog—and photography.
Kim Hutchinson, Award-Winning Copywriter
Our award-winning copywriter started her career as a teenage TV producer, and since then Kim has written for pretty much everybody, everywhere, from global brands to medium and small companies. She gives them all their own distinctive voice and an unforgettable story that targets the customer’s heart. In her off-hours, she’s a yoga and dog lover, a festival filmmaker, a journalist and a fiction author. She’s also completely addicted to her iPad. Seriously. We can’t pry it out of her hands.
Anthony Miller, Managing Director
Anthony Miller received his Human Communications degree from Southern Oregon University. He then went on to become a salesman in the petroleum industry. By the age of 26 he was the General Manager of a $30 million dollar petroleum company. He later left the petroleum industry and founded Stepping Stone Solutions, a sales and marketing training and consulting firm. Anthony traveled the world using his experience to help others achieve success in sales, marketing, leadership and motivation. After five years on the road, Anthony began looking for an opportunity to settle back into his hometown while still being able to help businesses and individuals succeed. He found the perfect fit at Digital Aptitude as Managing Director in 2012.
Jed Kent, Search Engine Marketing Manager
Jed is a highly motivated SEO specialist skilled at pinpointing exactly what needs to be done to dominate Google SERPs. Add to that his ability to create and manage highly successful PPC campaigns, build quality links and strategize site architecture, and you have a formula for highly targeted traffic that converts.
During his “free” time, Jed is continually educating himself on changes to search engine algorithms, discovering new tools and techniques for success, and bettering overall efficiency.
Alison Hawkins, Social Media Manager
Alison has the enormous task of keeping the rest of us all on track, which is a bit like herding cats, so it’s a good thing she’s organized and methodical. It’s even better that she always sees the glass as half full. If she weren’t that optimistic, the creative types and our crazy ideas and crazier schedules might, well, bring her down a little, and that would be very, very bad, because we all depend on her buoyancy to keep the ship afloat.
Claudia Pesce, Content Marketing Manager
Claudia manages a team of five writers who create content for our clients. All of our writers, Carl Martin, Laura Foor, Rosanne Lim, Chris Garita and Mark Doyle, are professional writers or journalists, as well as residents of the U.S. and native English speakers. Claudia does a fabulous and critical job of keeping them coordinated and the content flowing to our clients websites.
Joel Harrison, Web Developer
Every great creative group has a guy just like Joel, and we’re not only lucky, we’re happy about having him on our team. He’s our primo web developer and optimizes our clients’ sites, and he’s also our resident rocker-guitarist-album art designer, adding color to our days at the office and great tunes to the soundtrack of life.
Joaquina Alonso, Animation and Graphic Artist
Our resident Walt Disney, Joquina, brings our client’s product fantasies to life in 2D or 3D, in their choice of video or film. Of course, her life in Argentina is kind of like an animated fantasy. She makes dreams come to life in movies all day, and when she’s done, she goes to the beach where she kitesurfs, or the mountains where she snowboards. We’re not jealous, really. Not much, anyway.
Tiana Laurence, Chief Financial Officer
As our chief financial guru, Tiana takes care of all of the financial aspects of the business. She loves to work with fun people doing things that she’s passionate about like making positive changes in the environment, she’s super smart and loves learning new languages and traveling.
