Marketing, Research, Management

Introduction

Stan Collins Boyd, the marketer, manager, writer, business developer, and investor based in Scottsdale, Arizona is searching for a career that is not only challenging, but that also offers the potential for exponential growth.

Over the past few years, I’ve supported myself by servicing clients in my marketing business, managing the marketing and incoming projects in the solar engineering firm that I’ve become a partner in, and by successfully trading stock options on my personal account.

My intent is to find a position at a company or organization that allows me to not only learn more, but that also presents an opportunity for me to build a lucrative career.

From my point of view, my top qualities include a natural thirst for knowledge and the ability to master new skills, a focused and complete dedication to the task at hand, and the ability to maintain my focus on the details necessary to achieve the desired outcome of any given goal or task presented to me.

In short, my best quality is my ability to quickly learn and master any particular task or concept that is presented to me. My current areas of focus are:

  • Writing – Most of my free time is spent researching various topics of interest and writing expositions. Furthermore, I have years of experience writing documentation for software platforms, company processes, procedures, and future goals.
  • Marketing Campaigns – Creating successful marketing campaigns online, through social media marketing, email marketing, text marketing, and direct mail has been one of my strongest suits.
  • Project Management – From processing residential solar design projects to overseeing several simultaneous multimedia marketing campaigns for multiple agents or clients, project management has become a major part of nearly every venture I’ve excelled at.
  • Research and Development – In addition to being a hobby of mine, researching interesting social or political topics, business models and strategy, and marketing and sales techniques is a specialty of mine.
  • Stock Market research, specifically pertaining to stocks options and analysis of the the companies behind the stocks.
