Marketing Specialist

Dear Sir or Madam,


I am excited to join a team that is successful, employee centered and will allow my leadership and


creativity to flourish in the creation of fearless and engaging yet pragmatic content while exceeding


customer experience expectations. I am confident in my ability to conceptualize a brand and


communicate it to the right audience in the most cost effective and efficient way possible.


There’s nothing better than a sense of humor and a fresh look when it comes to marketing. I know I


would be a great asset to your company in many realms due to my unique experience and skill set. My


passion lies in helping companies brand and rebrand, content marketing creation, developing integrated,


thought-provoking campaigns and most importantly building and maintaining relationships with top


clients.


Managing and branding a multi-faceted organization over eleven years, coupled with running my own


company has led to the needed skills to balance multiple projects, lead and train employees, and solve


problems quickly both collaboratively and as a team member.


I look forward to hearing from you and discussing how I can help your company achieve its goals.


Thank you,


Steve Kennett

Don't Be Fooled

  • When selling, do not put your home address in your ad.
  • To avoid scams, buy and sell with people you can meet locally, in person.
  • When meeting with someone you don't know, meet in a public place. If that's not possible, have a buddy with you. Also, carry a cell phone; if you feel unsafe, you can call a trusted friend, and stay on the line.
  • Never give out financial or private information like account numbers, PayPal login, or social security number.
  • If an offer sounds too good to be true, it is. Walk away!
