As a leader in custom printed shirts, Rush Order Tees is committed to acquiring the best talent at all levels and aspects of the business. “To grow as a market leader among providers of custom printed shirts for consumers is of course a principal goal. Beyond that, we’re committed to extending the level of service, quality and value consumers have come to expect from us - to corporate buyers of company shirts and uniforms. Marketing our business friendly message to corporate buyers is a priority as we continue to enhance the consumer experience in designing custom printed shirts online.”
The addition of Ron Reed to the leadership team brings broad-reaching experience and depth to the Company. Ron’s experience in marketing across all major disciplines - Internet (SEM, SEO, Site Design, et al.), social (SMM), email, multimedia, TV, radio, direct & print - is already proving a valuable asset to the Company. Ron has managed marketing, IT, and broadly applicable business and contract management projects at a senior executive level. He has been the senior PM on the development of new websites and redesigns of existing ones. His work has been instrumental in aligning organizational missions and specific departmental objectives and strategies across marketing (Internet-based & traditional), sales leadership, IT, HR and operations to support objectives in revenue, lead generation, talent acquisition, operational effectiveness and the development of strategic alliances.
Prior to joining the Rush Order Tees team, Ron worked for Venture 3 Systems (creators of Telikin brand computers for seniors) as the Web Marketing Manager where he created and managed all online marketing initiatives and the company’s web presence. This included marketing across all the leading search engines (Google, Yahoo, Bing) plus all social marketing (Facebook & Twitter) as well as all display ads, web-alliances and content marketing. After inheriting the company’s seven month old YouTube Channel with only 165 views, Ron took sole ownership of the project to bring the channel past 20,000 views in under five months and making YouTube a consistent top-5 referral site for the business.
Ron proposed and managed major site improvements to enhance the visitor experience, increase conversion rate by web and phone, and to drive technical SEO & SEM improvements (including relevance and quality). Ron proposed and contributed to the expansion and training of personnel for phone sales to align the web, media and sales messages under an Integrated Marketing Communications plan to support both B2C sales and B2B strategic initiatives with major retail partners including Best Buy, Sears / K-Mart, Radio Shack, Fry’s and Amazon. Ron also created and managed the company’s direct Amazon listings and enhanced Amazon’s own product listings through personally authored submissions and direct communications with Amazon.
Before his success with Telikin computers, Ron led web, social and email marketing and initiatives for Pleasant Valley Home Mortgage (a $450-million lender) during a growth stage that saw the company expand significantly throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. Ron managed all SEM, SMM and the full development of a completely new company web-site and CPC landing pages leading to dramatic increases in lead generation (the principal objective) in excess of 150%.
As the Vice President of Marketing and Operations with OPG Global & Staffing.org for five years, Ron acted as senior project manager on the highest priority initiatives including the development of all new affiliate web sites, related e-marketing, and operational matters including the management of two major office relocations and expansions, assistance with VC investor relations, and the development of strategic alliances, sponsorships, paid advertisers, and public agencies. When the Company’s flagship site for over ten years (Staffing.org) was purchased, Ron focused on Staffing.org where he stayed and continued duties as the Vice President of Marketing & Online Media at the behest of new ownership even beyond the company’s eventual out-of-state relocation before ultimately accepting an offer from the more locally based Pleasant Valley Home Mortgage.
Building on his work managing corporate marketing, online media and business operations, Ron worked for Allstate, Inc. as a member of it’s corporate marketing team focusing on the company’s then newly acquired workplace group division. Working closely with the Senior Director of Sales, Ron took ownership of marketing communications with a focus on B2B proposal writing for all corporate Sales Managers throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey regions. Ron codified results, established and reported key performance indicators for the region while creating collateral in line with corporate communications policy. To better contribute to the organization, Ron acquired full insurance licenses in six lines to become a legally recognized authority on subject matter in collateral, e-communications, and business proposals.
Preceding his work with Allstate, Ron accepted a role as Business Manager which led to promotions to Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Information Officer of Basement Dr. & MD Environmental, Inc. - a large construction and remediation company with $45 million in annual revenue and over 500 employees with five offices in PA, NJ, DE, MD and NY. Under both CMO and CIO roles, Ron was ultimately responsible for all media buying, marketing initiatives and major corporate technology contracts.
Ron shifted investments in IT and marketing by personally sourcing, bidding and negotiating multiple new contracts which ultimately led to the company saving an average of $50,000 in monthly recurring costs. Ron established metrics and KPIs as more effective resources for executive leadership and middle management. His initiatives across marketing, IT and talent management led to improved effectiveness, drastically improved alignment with regulatory agencies and increases in lead quantity and quality while further establishing Ron’s senior leadership, project management, marketing, and contract negotiations skills.
Ron has been published in print and online as an in-house Senior Researcher, Technical Writer and Editor with two of the world’s leading publishers - McGraw-Hill Companies and Reed-Elsevier. With both organizations, Ron specialized on writing for business and industry. His exceptional research and writing work led to multiple promotions, bonuses and recognitions for contributions of quality and quantity in each of these leading global organizations. Ultimately his experience and access to high-level business leaders in these companies and strategically partnered organizations yielded massive insight into business management, contracting, marketing and leadership laying an exceptional foundation for Ron’s professional career.
Ron has also worked as a professional corporate speaker on time and team management under Day-Timers Inc.’s contract with Stephen Covey - author of the best-selling Seven Habits of Highly Successful People which served as the foundation for corporate speaking events.
Ron is already proving to be a valuable addition to the Rush Order Tees organization as he works with leadership, the team, and external partners to further develop the company’s marketing strategy, online presence, corporate mission, long term and priority objectives, and new product offerings to support the expansion and growth of Printfly and Rush Order Tees. “I’m honored to be a member of the team and look forward to expanding awareness of company’s value proposition to consumers and businesses.”
