  • Bleeding Edge of Marketing

In 2008, online marketing and social media were ‘all the buzz’ and businesses were looking for guidance on how to navigate this new frontier. As an official tech nerd that lived and breathed online marketing before it became mainstream, Julien soon became the ‘unofficial marketing consultant’ at the real estate office were he worked as a REALTOR.

Recognizing the growing need for online marketing, in late 2008 he took a leap of faith — as many entrepreneurs do — and channeled his SEO and Social Media expertise into a company he could be proud of — and so Organik SEO was born. Julien founded Organik SEO on a deep rooted desire to build strong relationships with local businesses and actively support the community. His unwavering commitment to honest transparent work was a welcome change in a characteristically unethical industry, and it’s a difference that’s widely felt and appreciated by those who work with the Organik team. Organik has a passion for helping purpose driven businesses and non-profits with their SEO, social media and content marketing efforts. You can learn more about our approach and core values by checking out the Organik SEO story.

In his free time, Julien serves as a founding board member with the U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce and a board member of “San Diego Accelerators” (An Entrepreneurs Organization). Julien is also the "San Diego's Online Marketing Examiner" writing for Examiner.com. His work was recently published in the 2013 PR News' Digital Guidebook with his contributed article on Local SEO. Julien was recently named SD Metro’s 2013 "40 under 40" and was recognized as one of the San Diego Business Journal's "Most Admired CEO's." Julien has a passion for helping eco-friendly and purpose-driven businesses, and is an active member of the San Diego entrepreneur community.
