Bleeding Edge of Marketing

Julien Brandt

In 2008, online marketing, SEO and social media were ‘all the buzz’ and businesses were looking for guidance as they tried to navigate this new frontier. Having studied graphic design, computer science and business at San Diego State University, Julien found himself well positioned to help businesses grow. After building a few websites of his own he started consulting and working with a few clients.

Recognizing the growing need in 2008 he took a leap of faith — as many entrepreneurs do — and built a brand dedicated to supporting the growth and success of brands and organizations that were doing great things. In true bootstrap fashion with a few hundred dollars and lots of sweet equity he build the framework for a digital marketing agency — and so Organik SEO was born. Julien founded Organik SEO on a deep rooted desire to support purpose drlven businesses and organizations. 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 the BBB and the “San Diego Accelerators” (An Entrepreneurs Organization).Julien was recently named SD Metro’s “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 he is an active member of the San Diego entrepreneur community. He regularly provides media coverage and speaks at social media and SEO industry events including San Diego Entrepreneur Summit, and the Cause Conference among others. He also has a passion for entrepreneurship and regularly speaks at both SDSU and Point Loma Nazarene University.
