Are you ready to take your marketing efforts to the next level? So am I.
After years of working with startups and SMBs, I’ve discovered one thing that repeatedly stands true with them all – they know marketing is important, they just don’t know how to build the right marketing mix to help with growth initiatives like generating leads and sales.
Why I started this website…. I strongly believe that in order to succeed in life, you have to have a network of like-minded companies and individuals filled with resources to learn from. This network sooner or later becomes the force behind your learning, inspiration, motivation and success. As I continue to meet marketing professionals and business owners who still yet don’t know exactly how they can leverage digital/inbound marketing for engagement and sales – my motivation to help never fails. Therefore, I want my website to serve that need for people who are looking to learn (my mission) before turning to hiring a marketing professional or agency to help.
I believe you should make the most out of life. I’m a natural optimist, motivated for crazy success and inspired by others who live the same way. I’m okay with failing, but I’m not okay with never trying. To me, taking massive action to learn, fail fast and improve where needed has been the primary reason why I’ve been able to take that leap from being an employee to now being my own boss. Here’s the kicker, while it may be fun to build someone else’s dream for them, it’s even more fun to build your own and wake up with a purpose to truly do what you love, never have to plan a vacation to get away from work and never work again for just the weekends.
No matter who you are – whether you’re someone who’s tired of not knowing where to take your marketing efforts to yield the best results or a tired employee who’s ready to start your own business venture or just someone looking for some marketing inspiration – you’re in the right place, and it’s so nice to meet you.
Who am I? My name is Suttida Yang. When I was introduced to the world of digital marketing, I immediately fell in love. I also found a great passion in helping businesses maximize the opportunities digital marketing provides for growth and profitability. As the demand for my marketing help continued to rise, I started my own digital marketing and web design firm, FastMarkIt, in 2010.
Before going full-time with FastMarkIt, I worked relentlessly within the tech startup scene that was emerging in Colorado. My most successful experience within the startup world was being a part of a company called, Revolv. I was brought on to run and organize the marketing department – pushing to elevate the brand and see it through its acquisition by Google’s Nest in 2014.
Through it all, I learned so much about leadership, what it takes to run a successful company, what causes businesses to fail and so much more. Post the acquisition in 2014, I began running FastMarkIt full-time and haven’t looked back. Some of the things I’m most proud of are:
- Being invited and flown out to speak at the Better Business Bureau’s Regional Event in Hawaii in 2015 in front of 20+ CEOs about the value of marketing.
- Since going full-time with FastMarkIt, growth has surpassed 400%.
- Having an average ROI of 4x with FastMarkIt clients.
- Being featured as one of the 20 experts on how personalization affects conversion rates in this article.
- Being featured as one of the top 7 digital marketing blogs in this post.
- Waking up every day with eagerness to jump out of bed to chase my dreams and do what I’m truly passionate about: run my own business, face the challenges that comes with entrepreneurship, provide advice about marketing via my blog, help businesses achieve their goals by providing stellar marketing services, and be in charge of my life.
Fast-forwarding to today – I’m still working hard by keeping my mind fresh with the many changing facets of digital marketing. Some of my favorite sources to turn to are: Moz, Marketing Land, HubSpot, Fast Company and Inc. And, most (if not all) of my time is filled with digital marketing fun helping start-ups and SMBs.
