Who Am I?

My name is Dan McClelland and I’m an Internet marketing professional looking for new career opportunities as well as freelance work around Massachusetts.

Background

Growing up in the late ’80’s/early ’90’s, I was able to experience the digital revolution first hand. My earliest memory of a computer was when I was four years old playing Marble Madness on my father’s Apple IIGS. My earliest computer training came at 10 years old after my elementary school got funding to build a computer lab with an Internet connection. That was 1994 and the World Wide Web was still in its infancy, but by the end of middle school, personal computers, cell phones, and the Internet had completely changed the way I conversed with peers, researched a paper or discovered new music. In high school I received a teacher’s award for most dedicated in my computer repair class and was a founding member of the school’s robotics club which just competed in it’s 14th F.I.R.S.T. competition.

After graduating high school, my entrepreneurial ambitions led me to Bryant University where I earned a degree in Business Management. In July of 2006, I landed my first professional job at a plastics manufacturing company located in Hanover, MA. I started out in customer service, responding to questions over the phone and training customers to use Hapco’s materials and equipment. During my time in that role, I also assisted the marketing manager who challenged me to redesign all of Hapco’s outdated promotional literature. When she left the company in early 2009, I was promoted to marketing manager which is where I am today.

As a Marketing Professional

My current responsibilities as Marketing Manager include: Search engine marketing, search engine optimization, keyword research/optimization, website analytics, social media management, email marketing, content creation and blogging. I’m also responsible for all of the photography, as well as the directing, editing, and publishing of videos.

What Makes Me Unique

An exceptional work ethic and the desire to always go above & beyond and exceed people’s expectations have helped me to get to where I am today. Without a team or an assistant to work with, the multitasking has been quite a challenge, but I feel completely confident that I can take any project from start to finish, regardless of its complexity.
