Also the winner of the 2012 Business Excellence Award for Most Innovative Company in Marketing and Advertising. I changed fields to public relations and political strategy. The most notable success was as manager of the 2008 'Israel for Obama Campaign'. Afterward I became a strategic marketing consultant to celebrities for this award-winning online firm I founded. Over the years have had the privilege to work with companies and political organizations like Kidzui and the Tea Party Express.

This includes interviews with several celebrities such as the stars of A&E reality TV show 'Flip This House', Julian Lennon, Mark Ballas, and more. "Yeshiyah achieved great results with a slim budget for a non-profit organization client of mine. He proved to be very pro-active and thought out of the box, coming up with creative solutions to their PR needs. The result was international media coverage of their recently released CD album with big-name artists working together to raise funds for the charity. I would highly recommend Yeshiyah and his team to others seeking PR work." -Dylan Robertson **CLERK & OFFICE ASSISTANT** I've worked in office environments on a number of jobs and for a variety of purposes before. - In Israel, I worked as a financial clerk for the Tel Arad National Park and held duties including collecting daily entrance fees, keeping financial records, filling out accounting records with the Manager. - I worked for Da'Real Distributions in Beth-Shemesh where my job included communicating with clients oversea & record companies in Israel.

Dear Reader, My focus is on delivering results. I'm a startup business developer that has plenty of first hand experience with all challenges of startups in early and later stages of development. These are challenges I have faced and overcome: 1. Developing elevator pitches and pitchdecks (I have won a €35k price in a TV-pitching competition) 2. Developing a Minimum Viable Product (Software) on a shoestring budget 3. Early Customer Development Interviews (including getting letters-of-intent from potential customers) 4. Raising seed capital (I raised €190.000 or approx. $250,000 in seed-capital in Europe) including business planning, 5. Product and IT-management (I have managed an on-site team of 4 developers); Agile (Scrum); Design Thinking. 6. Sales (Enterprise B2B): lead generation through smart drip campaigns, social & solution selling, selling to executives in Finance (CFOs) and HR of medium and large size companies (revenue: €100M+). 7. Online marketing: website development (wordpress), SEO (content marketing and SEO optimization), SEA (Google Adwords, Facebook / Linkedin ads), concept development (developing customer persona; identifying a real pain; tailoring value proposition). One of the trickiest challenges I have faced is finding a good product-market fit. Key to overcoming this is identifying the innovators and early adopters in your market-place and develop a relationship with them. These customers will can help you iterate quickly and confirm or refute your value proposition.

Expert business developer and strategic marketer

United States - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 3

I am a storyteller and I empower people and brands to share their stories with their audiences to drive engagement and growth. I do this by leveraging my extensive brand management, business development and communications experience at Altria Group, and my comprehensive marketing strategy and execution role in a social story sharing and digital publishing startup,, to help businesses, organizations and brands grow. Recent client projects have included lead generation and conversion strategy and implementation projects, social media strategy and execution, content creation, ad design and development, market analysis and segmentation and landing page design. I have built new brands and new businesses from the ground up, and am well-versed in innovation culture and process, and I bring an entrepreneurial mindset to everything I do. I understand what it takes to engage an audience and make them passionate about your brand and company, strategically, technically, collaboratively and authentically. During my 17-year career with Altria, I took seemingly disparate positions and wove them into a strong leadership journey building businesses, organizations and brands. I've led the development of launch of new brands/new products, designed brand management leadership experiences and events, managed established brands, led website design efforts, launched the company's first Intranet, designed databases, developed communications strategies and overseen a billion-dollar sales organization, working with a number of large multi-million dollar customer accounts. At my startup, the team is virtual and part-time, so my responsibilities run the gamut. In a typical day, I might work on an investor presentation, host a UX conference call with our site designers, curate content and write posts for our social media audiences, approve outbound email copy, and wrap it up by working to engage storytellers and drive content on our platform. I'm as likely to be poring through Google Analytics reports as I am applying research findings to refine our value proposition. I am an experienced writer, accomplished in all forms of business writing and experienced in writing thought leadership articles and stories for my own blog and on other platforms. This unique blend of expertise and experiences enable me to help you solve your strategy, marketing, business development and content creation problems, and reach your growth goals.
