A Catalyst for Creativity and Success….
Some know her as the founder of Cijaye Creative and The Online Marketers Club, others know her as the local Web Cash Coach or RePurposing Specialist. She’s also become an advocate in working with Self Aware Business Owners. No matter what you prefer to call her – Cijaye is an Expert in all things Digital Marketing and Success! She is proud of her vast experience.
Born in Vancouver, BC, Canada (home of the 2010 Winter Olympics) where everyday work is a hustle to live but everyone stays positive…Cijaye learned very early that she was a “never give up”, “I absolutely CAN do it – no matter WHAT YOU THINK” type of person.
Cijaye is a true renegade.
This is her professional story.
Starting out in her mid teens, Cijaye became a Corporate Trainer for a local Media Company. She revised their existing trainingprogram and scaled it down from a 6 week intensive down to 3 weeks – resulting in the same outcomes by trainees.
This saved the company an estimated $500,000/yr in training expenses alone.
Further to this, she also built numerous training manuals and programs that were then rolled out to Senior Level Executives and front line staff as well.
Quite an accomplishment at such an early age; an experience she will never forget.
While still a trainer and incredibly proud of her work, she did feel something was missing. For numerous years she elected to pursue her creative side by moonlighting in the local music and entertainment industry (as an A&R / Events and Promotion Manger). When she decided to take her work in this area more seriously, Cijaye put herself through college.
Her concentration was in Marketing Communications and she KNEW immediately that this was her calling. She wrapped a bow around this education with a one year certification in new business development and it was off to the races thereafter.
She opened her primary business (at the time a boutique Marketing Services Agency) in 2003 – and over the years has shifted the agency into more of a Digital Strategy Consultancy.
This did not happen over night however.
In 2005 Cijaye made the choice to start transition her company for better scalability and to stay more current with the Dot.Com world. While doing so, she began working with the world renowned Internet Marketing Center which was founded by Cory Rudl, then operated by his successor Derek Gehl.
Her tenure with IMC exposed Cijaye to outstanding professional growth and opportunity. She started out as a Senior Online Marketing Mentor and eventually began contributing as a content writer, curriculum developer, training programs developer and speaker.
For nearly 2 years, she traveled much of the world sharing Digital Marketing secrets as a Speaker and Trainer.
Her contributions have generated millions of dollars in revenues…
And her new knowledge helped her significantly improve her business successes in house and with clients.
Cijaye now leads the way in Digital Marketing as a Consultant, Speaker and Trainer. Not to mention, writing her second business book.
As of 2012 Cijaye also joined forces with the Center for Arts and Technology to teach a 3 month Marketing Course and lead the development and roll out their new Digital Marketing Online Program.
As part of this venture, Cijaye is expectedto be speaking or sitting on the panel at numerous Digital Marketing conferences on behalf of the school.
