Coles Marketing is expanding its digital advertising services with the hiring of Christy Stewart, a veteran Digital Advertising Specialist and certified Google Partner in both AdWords and Analytics.
A Ball State University graduate with bachelor’s degrees in advertising and public relations, Stewart began her career as a media buyer working with traditional print and broadcast outlets before segueing into digital starting in 2007. Within the digital advertising realm, she has experience with search, display, remarketing, ad networks and social media.
Stewart has led traditional and digital ad buying teams working at the national, state and local levels, including hyper-local campaigns that target a specific geographic radius or zip code. She has created advertising strategies for major companies across a broad spectrum of industries including healthcare, education, automotive, utilities, lawn and garden, power sports vehicles, leisure destinations and agricultural.
She also has experience in traditional, co-op and direct response advertising.
Her Google Partner badge (formerly known as Google Certified Professional) indicates that Stewart has demonstrated expertise in AdWords and Analytics, met spend requirements, delivered agency and client revenue growth, and sustained and grown a client base.
Google Partners like Stewart have passed a series of exams demonstrating AdWords/Analytics skill, and have access to Google’s beta features and applications – allowing exploration of new tools before they hit the marketplace.
“Christy’s impressive credentials and proven track record of digital advertising outreach will help take us to the next level in the scope and depth of services we can offer to clients,” said Coles Marketing President Barbara Coles.Edit this post
