Meet Andrew Zarick, digital media expert and hip hop enthusiast. Using iDoneThis every day, Andrew has discovered that he gets more done than he otherwise gave himself credit for.
I’ve lived in Brooklyn for almost 8 years. I started my professional career as Digital Strategist for DUMBO-based interactive marketing agency, The JAR Group. I recently founded a marketing agency called AZBK, specializing in performance and acquisition marketing through paid search, social and display channels. While in DUMBO, I co-founded Digital DUMBO – a community of New York’s brightest digital thought leaders. The organization has quickly grown into one of the city’s largest digital communities with over 4,000 members. When not helping companies acquire new users or grow revenues with online advertising, I manage 100BestRapSongs.com – a hiphop music aggregator. When not working, I enjoy trying new restaurants, playing soccer, meeting interesting people and trying to see the world.
Location: Brooklyn, NY (Clinton Hill)
How do you use iDoneThis?
As a digital media strategist, I spend most of my time researching and testing the best ways to drive targeted traffic to either client websites or affiliate offers. This may involve keyword research, writing ad copy, developing creative assets, and then deploying the campaigns to platforms such as AdWords, AdCenter, Facebook and other popular (and not so popular) ad networks. Lately I’ve been using iDoneThis to log my daily activity to serve as a quick snapshot of my daily, weekly and monthly productivity. By using iDoneThis, I’ve actually started noticing that more often than not I’ve accomplished more than I was previously giving myself credit for.
You’re a digital media expert, so you must have a busy email inbox. How do you manage it?
I’m guilty of always wanting to have inbox zero, so I catch myself opening and reading emails that I know for a fact don’t need my immediate attention. In other words, I’m horrible at managing my email inbox. I’m the wrong dude to speak with for advice on email productivity. Next question!
What’s the greatest rap song ever?
Pete Rock & CL Smooth – They Reminisce Over You. This song has the dopest samples!
