Hello! I’m Amanda – a web designer and digital marketing nerd (but like… a cool one) living in Scottsdale, Arizona.
My story is simple. I was born and raised in Iowa. I then moved far, far away after college and was certain that my first job would be something that I was completely and wildly passionate about. Well, that didn’t happen. But, unlike most 20-somethings, I only struck out big once (can you imagine this girl in the insurance world?) before I found something that I truly enjoy doing.
I worked for a golf marketing and public relations firm for 6 years as their Social Media Manager, then their Advertising and Digital Media Manager and finally their Senior Website Designer. It’s fair to say that I wore many hats throughout my time there. My days at the PR firm were spent providing social media marketing for PGA TOUR events, managing print and digital ad campaigns for national golf clubs and updating client websites. For an ex-college golfer and techie like myself, it was pretty much the perfect gig.
A few months into starting that job, I began taking online coding lessons and teaching myself how to build websites. Not long after that, a designer friend of mine pushed me into helping her client with their website. It was then that Amanda O’Brien Design was born. Fast forward a few years and that little side business is now my full-time job. I provide a variety of services for my clients including: Website Design, Branding / Logo Design, Digital Branding Strategy, Digital Advertising, Social Media Marketing, Email Marketing services and pretty much anything else that falls under this “marketing on the internet” umbrella.
On that note… I’d like to thank you for stopping by to learn more about who I am and what I do. If you’re looking to take your online presence to the next level and need some help getting there, shoot me an email or click on that contact page and fill out the form. I’d love to meet you!
