Your Marketing Mentor
Husband & Father
First and foremost, thanks for stopping by!
As you know, my name is Jamie Tieche. I’m a (very) lucky husband to my wonderful wife Melanie, and a proud father to my 4 year old daughter, Avery.
I’m a seasoned digital marketer with over 8 years of hands-on experience across variety of industries including retail, e-commerce, real estate, automotive, travel, among others.
My passion lies in helping small businesses, entrepreneurs, and sales professionals grow their business with the help of a strong, strategic online presence.
As a digital marketing mentor, consultant, and coach I provide unmatched personalized support and solutions aimed at helping you achieve your business goals.
I believe every business (not just those with big budgets) can build a thriving, profitable, online presence with just a little guidance, the proper tools, and a strong work ethic.
ONLINE MARKETING SKILLS
After spending the better part of a decade focused primarily on helping businesses use technology to market and sell better, I’ve become proficient in a multitude of key areas, including:
I first fell in love with the lure of marketing during a business workshop in grade 11.
After graduating high school, I spent the next two years working a series of odd jobs to save up enough money to study Marketing at Sheridan College (before the days of the internet).
After college, when most people would enter the workforce, I decided to travel.
I spent the next two years exploring Europe, Canada, and the U.S. It was hands down the best education I could’ve asked for!
My first “marketing” job came in 2006 when I was tasked with setting up an online presence for my employer at the time, Richmond Subaru. We were one of the first dealerships to enter the social media space, and it was exhilarating!
Following my time with Subaru, I started my own WordPress blog (the now defunct jamiedefined.com), upon which I established a sound knowledge of content marketing, SEO, and more.
In 2010 I was hired by Hyundai to help manage their online presence, including email marketing, social media, and SEO. Within two years we were the leading dealership in the region, with over 25% of sales attributed to online lead generation.
In 2012 I left Hyundai to start my own digital marketing agency (Socialyze Inbound Marketing).
For 3 years (2012-2015) my team and I provided “done for you” inbound marketing solutions to over a dozen businesses across North America.
In 2015 I decided to step away from agency life to focus primarily on providing more personalized services to a more niche clientele (small business owners and sales professionals).
And here we are…
When I’m not in front of a screen or a group of professionals…
As a business owner in the digital marketing space, it’s not always easy to “shut off”, however, when I do get the chance to take a little “me” time, I enjoy spending it with my wife and beautiful daughter.
In the off chance I have some alone time, you’re likely to find me watching documentaries on Netflix, listening to old school hip-hop, or contemplating getting back on my skateboard in an attempt at feeling young again!
Aside from trying to relive my youth, I enjoy:
- Family time
- Photography and video
- Graphic design
- Reviewing new online tools and applications
- Listening to Podcasts and Audiobooks
