Founder & President
David Brown – Bio
David has over 30 years of advertising agency experience working with a wide range of major corporations, from packages goods, telecom, banking, corporate and media, and as an agency Media Director he became known for his ability to create innovative and results-driven campaigns for his clients.
During his agency career, David regularly presented his media plan proposals to the highest client levels including CEO’s, Presidents and Marketing Directors of Fortune 500 companies. Along the way, his efforts were recognized when he was awarded the Campbell Soup Company’s First Annual Creativity in Media Award (1984), The Silver Online Media Marketing Award (2004) and the Yahoo! Purple Chair Award for his work for the U.S. Bureau of Engraving & Printing (2004)
In 2015, David founded Optics Social Media where his goal was to help small local businesses increase their awareness through social media. After several years creating and curating social media content for local businesses like chiropractors, attorney’s, restaurants, auto collision shops and a media publisher, he decided to expand the business. During 2020, he became a channel partner with a Canadian SaaS company, trained up and received his Digital Marketing Agency certification.
His passion today is helping small business owners uncover the gaps in their digital marketing so they can see what’s working and what’s not working for their business online. The starting point on this journey is the activation of an award-winning digital audit which provides the data needed to inform them where they need to focus their attention. From there he guides them to solutions to take their business to the next level.
David views networking as a key activity for both personal and professional growth. As such, he held various leadership roles for three years in BNI upon launching his business, while concurrently serving as an active member of the Wyckoff Chamber of Commerce. At present, he is the day leader of a weekly group for the Ridgewood Chamber of Commerce as well as part of the Membership Team for the PNG Professional Networking Group.
