Lee Schwartz

MARKETING CONSULTANT

Based in Fargo, North Dakota, I’m a (25+ years) champion for small towns and small businesses that can’t afford their own staff–providing marketing expertise and improving your business’ or your small town’s online “curb appeal.” I can help you fill gaps in marketing, social media, PR, podcasting, copywriting and more. Let’s work together to make you proud when they Google your hometown or your family business! Having worked with over 30 different companies, my diverse career experience can help bring a fresh, unique perspective to your marketing.

Experience

  • Advisory Board: Western Minnesota Small Business Development Center
  • Mentor: Minnesota State Moorhead Marketing Students
  • Mentor: Gener8tor’s Startup/Entrepreneurial Mentor Swarm
  • Advisor: Hawley, Minnesota Economic Development Committee
  • Current Director of Marketing at NDSCS
  • Former Director of Marketing for both Grand Farm and Emerging Digital Academy

My passion for doing what I do became a “thing” when I realized how many small towns (and small businesses) out there were struggling–struggling to grow, struggling with technology, and struggling to make any kind of impression on young families, young companies & entrepreneurs.

I’d love to talk about helping you, your small town or your business.

Clients & Industries

I spent years as the General Manager for sports teams and as a concert promoter. Since then I spent almost a decade at advertising agencies, managing and leading website and marketing teams that worked with companies just like yours. My teams renamed colleges, transformed the marketing for casinos and helped manufacturing companies develop a strong B2B marketing plan. I have also produced podcasts for five different organizations.

  • Casinos
  • Colleges
  • Ag Tech
  • Small Town Economic Development
  • Startups
  • Podcast Development

Is your company supporting its own podcast yet? It’s a great way to really make a strong connection with your current customers and potential new customers. Podcast hosting allows you to make your guests (and business partners) feel special and welcome. I have produced over 350 podcast episodes for six different businesses/organizations, including Fargo’s most-listened-to podcast.

Client Testimonial

“Lee led the marketing and communications efforts at Emerging Prairie with skill and confidence. His years of experience were apparent both in his expertise in subject matter, but also as a leader. Lee continues to be one of the best managers I have had in my professional experience. He was never afraid to advocate for the needs of his team, and we worked seamlessly together as we tackled problems headfirst. Any organization would be lucky to have Lee a part of their team.”

ANDREW PARSONS, BRAND MANAGER | TELLWELL STORY CO.
