Work With Justin



This online course is designed as a social media strategy in a box. A paint-by-numbers process to give you a proven, repeatable, and effective social media presence. I’ve interviewed and worked with some social media heavyweights (Michael Hyatt, Gary Vaynerchuk, Pat Flynn) and distilled their wisdom and my findings into this course. Jump in here →

One of my favorite things to do is sit with teams and spend a day strategically mapping out the organizational why, what, and who. The process I use is proven and has created clarity for dozens of organizations. Get clarity for your org →

Consulting and Coaching

Maya Angelou once said, “nothing works unless you do.” My approach to social media consulting is influenced greatly by this. I tell my clients they’ll need to put the time in to get the results.

Speaking Topics

I am an author, speaker, and digital communications practitioner from Des Moines, IA. I help organizations think differently about their digital communications & content marketing strategy. You have a message to share, I help translate it online.

I cover these topics both from the 30,000 feet level all the way down to the step-by-step, depending on audience and need. My methods are tested–I’ve presented to CEOs, students, professors, young professionals, entrepreneurs, and nonprofit leaders. Bring me to your event →
