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 successfully managed the inbound marketing programs including blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Instagram, email, location based services, affiliate program, influencer outreach, and more for two of the three brands within the corporation.
After nearly a decade serving two of his favorite niches – SCUBA diving and camping/hiking – Nick moved on to exciting new challenges. He is currently running two new businesses providing marketing strategy consultation, and corporate and event photography services. He is also in the pre-launch phase for an additional business serving the music/art festival industry.
As he's always looking for ways to give back, especially to artists, he is a partner in two businesses where he provides strategic marketing
In his free time, he serves on the board of directors of Burnt Oranges Inc, a Florida-based nonprofit corporation working to encourage and support large scale participatory art. Along with his board seat, he is the Communications Officer and co-event lead for their annual 500+ person multi-day camping music and art event.
A lifetime of experience in all forms of marketing and web development allows Nick to guide any business in their marketing endeavors through methodical use of strategic research, planning, and implementation.
In his free time, Nick likes to cave dive because it forces a methodical, focused, task-based approach to exploration and personal growth.
