About me-G. Scott Klimt

Some people can play music; others can draw pictures. I can market. I am an anomaly. I’m right brained and I’m left brained. I’m whole brained. I’m creative, strategic, and have an eye for the arts. I’m logical, analytical, and get things done.

I create effective marketing strategies starting with product development, distribution, pricing strategies, and promotion. I know that effective marketing requires strategic discipline, rigorous research, and clear understanding of the meaningful benefits that make products and services appealing to consumers.

I’ve studied marketing for over 6 years in a university setting. I earned my Bachelors of Arts in Marketing from the University of Utah in 2002. I received my Masters of Business Administration from the University of Utah in the spring of 2009. During my post graduate studies I continued to study marketing while placing an extra emphasis on entrepreneurship. I also enjoy creative writing, graphic design, and programming.

I have been working in sales and marketing for at least 15 years. I have 7 years of professional experience since finishing my BA. I’ve helped or overseen the marketing for consumer products, apparel, events, business services, and more. I’ve created successful promotions and advertising campaigns across all forms of media. I’ve developed systems in improve sales and customer satisfaction. I’ve created ways to lower costs and increase revenue through pricing strategies.

I look forward to helping your business grow.
