Ryan Scott

When I was only 14 years old, I built my first website using Microsoft Frontpage. Since then, I've made a career (and hobby) out of marketing things online. I have been a digital marketer for colleges, startups, non-profits, and a bunch of side projects.

I am driven by growth metrics. I enjoy showing companies how to create remarkable success stories by driving traffic to their website and using inbound marketing strategies to nurture that traffic into customers and brand promoters.

I joined Lean Labs for two primary reasons:

  • To join a ‘remarkable or bust’ company culture.
  • To focus on creating success stories more than punching a time card.

I’m passionate to go to work every day because I am empowered to focus 100% on the tasks that drive results.

Skillset: There's three main things I love about digital marketing:

First, is writing - I love writing. Thankfully, writing is a key component of digital marketing. So, it just fits.

Second, is strategy. Trying to outrank competitors, and having successes (and failures) is exciting. It's like playing a long drawn-out game of chess. Google is the chess board, which adds a level of unpredictability, and makes it even more challenging.

Third, is growth. There's nothing that gets a marketer excited as watching our work pay off. Seeing traffic charts go up, conversion rates increase, and revenue flow in... it's fun!
