How to Get an “A” in Math - and Online Marketing

By Shelly Kramer on Jun 10, 2011 - 12:53 PM

Welcome to the Planet Ocean Blog! If you’d rather watch than read, there's a video introduction embedded in this post but I'll give you the details here, too, just in case.

I’m Shelly Kramer, the founder and CEO of V3 Integrated Marketing. I’m a marketer, strategist, content creator, nationally-known speaker and Web savvy geek focused on new media and all forms of digital communications, strategy and marketing.

To the astonishment of my many mathematics professors, I’m also a sucker for stats, numbers, analyses and measurement of all kinds -- which makes me the geeky addition to any discussion. And yes, I’ll admit to taking College Algebra five – count ‘em five, different times before finally passing....with an A. Funny thing. When you actually show up to class, the odds of passing are greatly improved.

In all seriousness, I’m responsible for delivering results for my clients on a daily basis. They like it when I bring ROI to the table -- and my obsession with stats, measurement and analysis helps me do just that.

I’m a 20+ year marketer and have launched products and built brands for a wide range of clients in both the B2C and the B2B sectors. In addition, I’m especially adept at helping brands navigate the online space and integrate smart online strategies into their traditional marketing strategies.

I’ve been fortunate to have received much recognition for my accomplishments in the online space, some of which includes:

  • Named #19 in list of Top 100 Most Influential Women on Twitter
  • Featured in Ingram’s Magazine in April 2011
  • Named by Big Money Web as one of the Top 200 Fearless Women Online and in Social Media
  • June 2011 PostRank Named the V3 Blog as one of the Top 100 Most Engaging Social Media Blogs
  • Featured in Kansas City Business Magazine in August of 2010
  • Named one of the Top 10 Twitter Influencers
  • Recognized by Forbes as “Top 30 Women Entrepreneurs to Follow”
  • Named #12 in the list of the World’s Top Tweeters
  • Forbes named the V3 Marketing blog one of Top 20 Best Marketing and Social Media Blogs.
  • PostRank ranks the V3 blog in the Top 10 of Social Media + Business Blogs

So there you have it. My story. And I’m sticking to it. You can find me online at V3 Integrated Marketing, on Twitter at @shellykramer, or connect with me on LinkedIn. I’m honored to be a contributing writer for the Planet Ocean blog and I really do, very much, look forward to getting to know you. In short – bring it!
