Business Development Consultant

michael-d-erickson

My name is Mike Erickson. I've been serving micro businesses since 1996 with a diverse array of strategy consulting and digital marketing services.

In 2007, I formed Michael D. Erickson LLC and began doing freelance website design and development in my spare time while employed at a local mortgage brokerage. In 2009, I obtained the trade name uExclusive and began offering freelance WordPress website design services to micro businesses and individuals.

Today, in addition to WordPress website design services, I offer support and consultation on email marketing, social media marketing, search marketing, search engine optimization, content marketing, video and audio editing, and graphic design.

Contact me to learn how you can benefit from my skills and services to improve your digital marketing efforts.

Mike has experience with other projects besides website design. Check out his Adobe Profile to see other works he's completed.

Testimonials

  • "Mike Erickson has been a Godsend to me. He is a brilliant and professional web designer. Beyond that he helps with every aspect of social media to help publicize my upcoming memoir. I would give him 10 stars if they had that many, his fees are also very reasonable. I plan to give him more work as needed."

  • "I have had the pleasure of working with Mike Erickson for the last few years and am so happy to have him as part of my professional team.

    Mike is a very skillful and talented professional with a multitude of talents of which I do not possess or have the time to learn. Mike has provided me with not only business coaching skills but also advise and expertise in the marketing and social media realms as well as analyzing data regarding my industry and current trends.

    He is a great listener – especially when I drift off subject or just need to vent! He is very organized and timely with his agendas, email follow-up and meeting targeted deadlines. He is always timely with his email replies, phone calls, and text messages. He is a wonderful content writer and has been instrumental in the design of many of our marketing material efforts.

    Mike is always there when I need him and I am confident of his ongoing support as my company continues to grow and prosper into the future. Thank you, Mike, for all you have done as my “behind the scenes” business partner!"
