Tim Van Samang
Owner at Finntheo
In 2008, I started my career as a digital marketer when I coded my first website. I had no idea what I was doing and hacked together some HTML for my Father’s business. I was blown away that millions of people could view what I had built. Intrigued by my new found excitement, I decided to educate myself and took a two year web business program at BCIT.
After completing the program, I picked up a few freelance clients and landed my first job working for a successful ecommerce business. While I was there, I strengthened my skills and learned: SEO, SEM, and email marketing. I also worked with a back-end developer and adopted the basics of .ASP, Database Management – Access, SQL Server and MySQL.
Two years later, I went back to my freelance career and partnered with a brand strategist and a front-end developer to create Feziwig – a boutique agency located in North Vancouver. My main role at Feziwig was to manage web projects and fill in the gaps between web design and web development, offering: SEO, paid advertising, email marketing and social media marketing. Have a look at a few projects I did here.
Feziwig disbanded 2 years later and I took on an in-house position working for a financial services company. Hired as their digital marketing manager, one of my tasks was to educate their 200 plus advisors on digital marketing strategies. See more detail here.
Currently, I’m working on a variety of projects and have partnered with experts in Web Design, Video Marketing, and SEO.
