I’m Teighe (sounds like “teeg”) and I’m a Digital Marketing Manager & Creative Content Producer working, playing, and generally having a blast in the Washington DC, MD, and VA areas.
Making digital media content is my jam. It’s both my work and my play. I pour my heart and soul into creating engaging, meaningful videos, graphics, websites, and landing pages for my clients. But amazing content is just not enough to make an impact online anymore.
For years, it pained me to see my clients waste our creativity due to makeshift content marketing and disorganized digital strategy. Sure, the content might get posted to YouTube or on an under-curated social media page, or uploaded somewhere on their website. They might get a few hundred views, or a few thousand, from audiences already built in. But often, my clients’ content would just drift aimlessly into the vast, deep web never to be heard or seen again, like a powerful rocket built without any kind of propulsion system. Sad, right? Poor creative content.
So, I became my own content rescue team. A social media marketing superhero who could both make awesome content and blast it into the social media stratosphere. Since then, my content has helped move massive advocacy campaigns into viral motion and garnered action from social media supporters. The most satisfying feeling in the world is watching my clients’ businesses and campaigns set off spectacular online fireworks with my help. Now, I get buzzed from cleaning up a client’s SEO, watching audiences skyrocket with proper social media management, and creating successful campaigns to get leads coming and create brand rapport. My favorite feeling in the world is seeing my clients’ small businesses succeed.
In 2016 I was certified in Neuro Linguistic Programming. NLP is the science of identifying linguistic and behavioral patterns to create rapport and motivate positive changes in people. It’s a neat skill both for marketing and for winning over in laws, bar acquaintances turned political opponents, and anyone else who’s disinclined to like you.
Teighe the Armorer, Son of Thor
Teighe Armor Thorsen. My middle name really is Armour. Supposedly it’s a family name but ask me some time about my mother’s tragically deceased childhood pet Javilina boar of the same name. Even still, etymologically, that makes me “Teighe the Armorer, Son of Thor”.
Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting
Well, technically it was “European Martial Arts” that I practiced for nearly a decade – Broadsword, pole-arm, grappling. Even Olympic style fencing. These days my swords sit in an umbrella stand by my door and I have a tendency to trip over flat surfaces.
