My name is Jonathan Strickland, welcome to my homepage. I am an Internet Sales Manager and Social Media Specialist for Downtown Nashville Nissan. I also freelance digital marketing for small businesses. The Internet, especially Social Media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.) is more widely consumed than television. Allow me to improve the image and maximize the exposure of your business. What your customer perceives is real to them, and if they do not see how current your business is with connecting with them, then you're lacking potential. I encourage you to read my blog and see my video portfolio, and if you have a small business, reach out to me and let me know how I can make your presence on the web more dominant and effective. Contact me for a consultation, and you'll have a free customized plan for your business. I want to plant my seed in the Franklin/Nashville area. Allow me to help your business grow.

"In pursuit of making a video, I aim to use the best quality camera I can find. The quality is demanded in the industry, and that type of 'pre-suasion' works the best in comparison to lower quality. The angle and lighting are always important."
SALES & ADVERTISING
"Success is my moral duty. I love learning what motivates a buyer, as well as assisting people in finding what they want easily; that is my goal. Having a need to be useful is a driving force. I am tenacious in my pursuit to better myself."
"You may not believe me, but I write heavy metal and progressive rock primarily. I studied orchestral composition and pop songwriting. I'm capable of making a jingle on demand! I am refining my portfolio, and I will have links to my music soon."
