Nick Bostic – Marketing Professional
Nick Bostic isn’t your typical marketing professional. Nick started his online marketing career at the young age of 10 when he started promoting the businesses of friends and family on BBS’s, Prodigy, and Compuserve. When he was 15, he started coding HTML. The rest, as they say, is history.
While in college, he developed a cutting-edge Content Management System (CMS) years before software like WordPress existed. Not realizing the commercial viability, he gave up due to too much comment spam.
While attending school, Nick became a very active SCUBA instructor, running his own program frequently filled with students older than he was. This was where he gained his understanding of how to successfully educate others, even on complex topics like diving physics.
Since he wasn’t busy enough, he frequently worked on his own various web sites as well as those of local paying customers. Before 2000, Nick was developing ecommerce sites for local companies that integrated with their in-store inventory systems.
After graduation, Nick learned incredible sales techniques from the likes of 24 Hour Fitness, Smart Wireless, and AT&T/Cingular Wireless. Working in the wireless industry, he saw the future of web technology moving online, so made sure all web projects were mobile compatible.
Nick was snatched from AT&T Wireless to teach online marketing techniques to the real estate industry for Chicago Title of Oregon. While managing their own online marketing, he frequently held seminars and individually consulted with real estate professionals to help guide them in their online marketing activities, while also integrating with offline marketing.
In an attempt to combine his career with his favorite hobby, Nick moved back to the diving industry by becoming the Director of Marketing for one of the largest etailers in the SCUBA industry. He currently manages the inbound marketing programs including blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Instagram, email, location based services, affiliate program, and more for two of the three brands within the corporation.
This lifetime of experience in online and offline marketing, mobile technologies, social media marketing, and web development allows him to guide any business in their online marketing endeavors.
In his free time, Nick likes to cave dive because it’s one of the only places you can truly get away from all forms of communication. As someone tuned in to social media all day, this is mandatory to maintain any level of sanity.
