Ryan Scott

Inbound Marketing Director

I built my first website when I was 14 years old, using Microsoft Frontpage. Since then, I've made a career and hobby out of marketing things online. Before joining Lean Labs I was a marketing director for colleges, startups, and doing marketing consulting on the side.

I am driven by metrics, and fuel my excitement by pouring over growth statistics. 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: first, to join a ‘remarkable or bust’ company culture, and to focus on creating success stories instead of office politics. I’m passionate to go to work every day knowing I am empowered to focus 100% on the tasks that drive results.

I am addicted to metrics, and I enjoy putting the pieces in place to make those metrics grow. I feel like a chess player that loves the strategy of the game, but who’s constantly counting how many pieces are still on the board. This intrinsic drive has led me to focus on developing three main skills:

  1. Creating content marketing strategies focused on giving potential customers the content they want most.
  2. Creating a content nurturing strategy to qualify and escort potential customers through the buying journey.
  3. Crafting content optimized for the internet audience.
