Every morning, an alarm goes off somewhere in Iowa City at about 6:00. The subject of the alarm shuts it off, closes her eyes, and counts down from five. Then she gets out of bed and runs five miles.
Afterwards, she comes to work and crafts, from end to end, winning ad campaigns for clients across the Midwest.
Erin Pitz is the Digital Marketing Specialist for Aelieve Digital Marketing. As one would assume from the similarity of her title and the purpose of the company, Erin is an indispensable part of both Aelieve’s business strategy, and clients it serves. Her experience ranges from helping small businesses grow both their brick and mortar and digital presences through search, display, YouTube, app, and social campaigns; analyzing customer interactions across websites to pinpoint areas of growth, and areas of improvement, and implementing advertising plans to address both; and continuously keeping abreast of advertising certifications—of which she has over thirty hours and counting, issued from Google and Facebook alone—and other news in order to keep her chops sharp and her copy crisp and effective.
An added and noteworthy skill that Erin brings to the Aelieve team which speaks to her professional aptitude and versatility is her experience with D&D Real Estate Holdings. Working as an intern for a community-focused property management company, Erin wore many hats, and performed every task from managing social media accounts to helping show units across Cedar Rapids, Marion, and Hiawatha. Through her several years with D&D, she learned not only how to multitask across multiple fields, often in quick succession, but she also gained invaluable real-world experience in interacting with and assisting a wide range of clients and their needs, no matter what had to be done.
Erin’s mentality is one that could most accurately be described in the old phrase, “Mind over matter.” Her belief in being able to surmount nearly anything through exercise of will—an ethos bolstered by her experience as a runner—is infectious to say the least, and to say it gets results would be an understatement. She has passed through several marketing positions, an Undergraduate Degree from the University of Iowa, a rigorous internship, and the challenges she has encountered so far at Aelieve with flying colors.
These qualities and more make Erin Pitz a vital organ of the Aelieve team, and in regards to her future, if there is a hurdle on the horizon she cannot overcome, it either does not exist, or has yet to be found and won.
