I just finished up posting the last of my 2010 – 2012 portfolio titled “my 2nd go.” This was a cross-section of my work from 24 to 26 years old.
It’s been quite a journey over the last two years. Putting this portfolio together caused me re-live some the experiences that I had during this time. I found myself upset, happy, despondent and overall grateful for the way things turned out.
I have many people to say thanks to for their support over the last two years. (I will do so privately.) I feel like a new chapter of my work is beginning. I’m looking forward to new friends and new successes with ol’ pals.
This is an ad that Mark Leggett and I created to illustrate what goes into Review Report Card.
Review Report Card represents the best of what my team and I learned during “my 2nd go” the 2010 – 2012 portfolio.
The product makes it extremely simple for a business to track their online reviews. It’s emailed weekly and only takes a single glance to understand a business’s ratings across the major review websites.
There are no passwords to memorize or training required. All the features are one click away from the inbox. Review Report Card is also available as a web app for your iPhone or iPad.
We accomplished a lot from a design perspective. Not only is the product extremely simple, we were able to build the advertising directly into it.

Here is one trick that will immediately increase your response rates: make your emails look like they’re coming from a detail-oriented person.
These three elements will help you pull it off:
- Make the email come from the same IP of the email domain (this will eliminate “sent on behalf of” disclosure that many email programs make)
- Suggest a specific call to action, like an appointment
- Embed your compliance statements in the signature and footer.
When you incorporate these three elements into your emails, people will be much more likely to respond. Here is an example of an email that got an 8% company level response rate off a list of over 1,200 people at pharmaceutical companies:
In my opinion, the most important metric that’s missing from email marketing and CRM systems is the company-level response rate.
Because many B2B sales cycles are long and involve multiple people, the B2B marketer needs a way to track open & response rates from entire organizations–not just individual leads.
In May of 2012, we invented a healthcare re-targeting ad product. It worked by inferring what types of medical ads to show a user based on the type of doctors that they search for online.
Here is a video which describes the product.
The cookies would be set by the medical directories. The cookies have an ID that describes what type of medicine a doctor practices. For example, we know if someone visits a Dermatologist’s profile that we should show that user dermatology ads.
Engagement–not clicks–is what matters most in mobile marketing. In June of 2012, we designed a high-engagement mobile ad unit for pharmaceutical advertisers. It’s called the “Ask Your Doctor” ad unit.
Go ahead and give it a try:
Pharmaceutical advertisers are always telling the public to ask the doctor about their drugs. Many already publish questions that the ad network can copy and paste to setup the campaign.
Since we already had a Robot Inside, we wanted to give people a glimpse into the other things that were going Inside of Mobile+Positive.
Between January and April 2012, Dan Flanegan and I collaborated on a series of educational mini-stories for mobile advertising. The problem at the time that was that media salespeople had to sell mobile advertising, but many didn’t know much about it.
The goal was to give media salespeople knowledge that they could assimilate & use immediately after reading each story.
Here is an infographic that I creative directed for Mobile+Positive in June of 2012. Designer was Mark Leggett. Luth Research contributed much of the data.
