Dubbed an “Online Celebrity” by the Wall Street Journal, Chris Ashbach has a practical and insightful view of social media and content marketing developed from a deep history in the hospitality industry. Being both a business owner and professional blogger, Chris has a rich experience in both small business and social media fields and can help you bridge the gap toward a successful content marketing and social media strategy. Chris considers himself an “accidental blogger.” In college, he concurrently took aviation lesson in Mankato while earning his bachelors degree in Finance and Political Science from Gustavus Adolphus College. He spent summers flying seaplanes and taking VR photography of resorts and the Minnesota wilderness as far back as the 1990’s. His first career of flying was dashed a few months after graduation during the 9/11 terrorist attack. Chris fell back on his finance degree and went into the corporate world. Realizing that cubicles and he didn’t have much of a future together, Chris broke up with office life and went back to graduate school at Bethel University. He earned a Masters Degree in Organization Leadership under his advisor, speaker, and best selling author on leadership and trust; Dave Horsager. The day before Chris was getting his paperwork signed for graduation, his father Dan called Chris and told him he had a following of 700,000 on Pinterest and wanted to know if it was worth building a business around. Dan was an early adapter of Pinterest and was richly rewarded for it. Chris, walking the hallways of Bethel University to get paperwork signed counted no less than 11 undergraduates shopping for wedding dresses on Pinterest. Chris quickly understood the value of his fathers account and they formed their first influencer business the next day. Within a few short months the blog dan330.com was started and today they have between 300,000 and 1,000,000 readers per month and over 2,200,000 social media followers.
