RESUME

Hello, I am Linda Ashok, and I consider myself a Digital Architect having 15 years of experience in full-stack digital marketing with Fortune 100, 500s, and SMBs. Currently, I operate as an independent digital marketing evangelist and edit StartuptoEnterprise.com.

From creative copywriting to analyzing search traffic to coding social media intelligence, I build a legacy and help businesses accelerate return on investment to their investors, internal & external stakeholders, and business revenue.

Whether you are a startup looking for a single point-of-contact for digital excellence or an enterprise with an emerging in-house digital team looking for a Jill of a single trade, you have found me.

I look at work beyond designation. A small budget technology startup is likely to win me if they are invested in social impact over a multi-billion dollar enterprise that would consider social impact just a branding need.

Hiring me fulfills ANY digital marketing requirement in collaboration with your product and sales team. It also gets you a brand advocate to ensure your business complies with every marketing regulation to emerge as a people-centric, progressive, and profitable entity.

I am also a Journalist, Writer, & Indian English Poet. I have two books to credit, substantial media coverage, and other achievements that will make you proud of having me as your most trusted and knowledgeable business resource.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

I believe that there is no autonomy in getting work done; there could be a single person working on a project, but the project itself and its success are the coming together of several brains.

Having explained how it works for me, as an independent consultant, I only had autonomy over deciding who to work with based on what impact the business is making. I had the autonomy to decline a project even at the cost of financial gains because of ethical reasons.

Also, between 2006 till 2019, I worked with big groups, managed teams, and represented my business verticals to multiple CEOs for their approval. I love diversity and deadlines.
