JW BEATOVICH

Professional Bio

I connect strategy, content and creative to help organizations grow.

Summary

I began my career at a small, but fast-growing nonprofit where I helped build and manage a brand and create content to scale the organization. By targeting specific audiences and developing new marketing strategies we exceeded our targeted yearly revenue by more than 50%. I then stepped into an opportunity that allowed me to further pursue the craft of video production while learning how to reach diverse audiences.

While at the College of Charleston, I raised my hand for the most challenging projects. I used my natural abilities as a problem solver and achiever to drive creative solutions and move the College forward. I partnered with futuristic thinkers to turn big ideas into real projects that achieved strategic objectives. In our yearly undergraduate advertising campaigns, we increased performance and achieved our highest click-through rates from online video ads to our landing page (between 5 and 10% depending on the target audience).

Among my greatest accomplishments are the times that I have motivated teams to shift perspectives and view challenges as opportunities.
