In 2015 DealerSocket purchased Dealerfire. My role was expanded to Senior Website Designer. Besides website designs, this expansion requires me to help in the training process of new hires, build out google ad campaigns, and source assets needed by our design team. Since taking on this role our design team has doubled.
In 2013 I was promoted to Website Designer. In this role I worked directly with clients to design a website that met their needs by drafting initial mock-ups and quick mock-up revisions until client approval. After the client approved the design, I provided our engineers with support to make sure our vision was correctly translated to a production ready website. I maintained constant communication with all clients and delivered designs that have boosted online auto sales by over 50%. Between June 2013 and February 2015, Dealerfire won the Driving Sales Dealer Satisfaction Award for Custom Websites and Top Rated Search Engine Optimization as a direct result of the work done by the talented design team.
Designed web and print graphics for over 1,000 automotive websites. In this role I served as the first contact with clients who needed updates to their website, online ad campaigns, and print goods. Consistent communication was needed between the client, 3rd parties (i.e. print shops), and myself. Relationship building with the customer was key and resulted in continued business as well as multiple industry customer service awards. While in this position the company won many awards, most notably the AWA Pinnacle Automotive Website Award in 2011, 2012, and 2013. Dealerfire also won the Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce Small Business of The Year award in 2012.
