Hello,

My name is Krystalyn Kroll and I love integrated marketing.

From SEM to social media, I help companies craft the perfect strategy.

 

About Me

My approach to marketing is a balance between the technical and the creative. With a background in accounting and process improvement, I'm not afraid to dive into the details and analyze CTRs, conversion rates, SOV, and more. As new insights are gained, I alter the strategy to yield the best results.

To engage customers, I bring a heavy dose of creativity to my work. I feel that people remember the unexpected and the extraordinary, so those are the types of campaigns that I like to create. Working within brand guidelines, I work with clients to innovate and create new and exciting experiences for their customers.

Some other thoughts:

  • I'm a strong believer in the power of teams and feel that some of my best work has been in collaboration with other individuals
  • Always keep the goal in mind - I live by this motto and apply it every day to my work
  • It's best to have at least one dream goal for your marketing, so you're always pushing for more
  • Homemade chocolate chip cookies are the best, especially if eaten on a busy Friday afternoon
 
The aim of marketing is to understand the customer so well the product or service fits him (or her!) and sells itself.
— Peter Drucker
 
 

Expertise

I've gained a depth of marketing knowledge in a number of channels and am confident in my abilities for each one. If I had to pick a favorite, search engine marketing would be a clear winner as it was my introduction to the field. I'm a certified professional in both AdWords and Bing Ads, and have taught hundreds of individuals to pass the exams. I'm well-versed in the basic capabilities of the programs as well as advanced topics such as remarketing, RLSA, video, and shopping ads.
