He grew not just one, but two successful local brands from inception, all while being a stay-at-home dad. Unlike Toledo marketing firms that prey on small businesses and attempt to groom them into paid advertisements, Andrew’s organic approach to marketing means long-term success for the businesses he’s established and managed. Andrew proves earning your rank among the internet and to your customers is a much more successful marketing strategy.
His career in marketing started off as a marketing research intern at TNS Global where he collected project-related information to compile a database of over 10,000 studies. Once his internship ended, he worked as a marketing intern for one of the Fortune 500 companies in Ohio. It was here at HCR ManorCare that his passion for marketing started to blossom as Andrew assisted with sales training's and created reports for the Vice President of Marketing and Analytics.
About a year after his Fortune 500 marketing internship ended, Andrew worked as an independent contractor for Gardian Angel, LLC. He grew this Toledo small business from inception in January 2010 with his father, Steve Gardner. Over the years working with Gardian Angel, LLC Andrew’s marketing strategies have proved highly successful. While implementing his marketing plan for Gardian Angel, LLC Andrew wrote articles for a school bus trade magazine, School Transportation News, as a freelance writer. His compelling digital content received the attention from leading government officials.
If that wasn’t enough, Andrew took his hobby of woodworking and started an e-commerce store in 2016 where he started FATHER-IN-SAW. In less than two years, his humble brand could be found through the websites of national magazines such as Fitness and Parenting. Just in case you were wondering he accomplished this organically, without even a penny of paid advertisements.
Now that his marketing strategies have proven successful over several years with multiple companies including his own, Andrew wants to work with you.
