Jessica Lyné Ross
Who's that girl? It's Jess. Like Beyonce or Cher, except not. All of my good friends call me Jess and you should feel free to do the same.
I've been in the marketing and content creation business for over 12 years now. I know, I don't look a day over 25. I graduated in 2008 with a degree in Broadcasting & Electronic Media with an emphasis in Film. From there, I freelanced and worked on honing my video skills until I was offered a job with a tiny little company called Kona Ice in 2010. Over the past 11 years, I helped them grow from 100 food trucks on the road to over 1,600. Along with a team of creatives, we built a recognizable brand that's given back over $80 million to communities all across the country. We told stories, created content and implemented marketing strategies all across the country in various markets all while building a brand that's become a household name. At the end of my tenure, we were given the distinct pleasure of creating a brand from scratch and it gave me the itch to branch out and do my own thing. Over the years, I've worked in the food and beverage industry, the publishing industry, as well as the performing arts space. Though mind you, not on stage. However, I have been known to give a speech or two! I like to say that I'm a Jess of all trades. If I haven't done it, I'll figure out how.
I'm energized by people. My real passion is connecting with people and helping them along on their journey. Sitting down to discuss their ideas and figure out what part I can play in helping them is one of my absolute favorite things. That's my enneagram 1w2 coming out. If you know, you know. That's where Martini Marketing comes in.
Why Martini Marketing? Well, first of all, I think marketing should be fun. It should be relational. After all, it's about making connections with customers. But first, we have to connect. When you meet with us, it should feel like you're meeting with a friend over drinks. It could be morning coffee, an evening martini - whatever floats your boat - but it should feel collaborative. Sure, we have ideas. We have expertise. But no one knows your business better than you do. We're here to be your marketing experts. We've got this, but we want you along for the ride.
Let's meet. Drinks are on us. Salut!
