Green Apple’s Digital Marketing Strategist, Amanda Bihun, sets our clients up for success in the digital space through organic and paid media tactics. We were lucky enough to bring Amanda on as part of The Orchard—our team of contract professionals—but we immediately saw the immense value she was adding to our clients’ marketing, and knew we had to have her as part of our core team.
An Ohio native, Amanda has lived in Alabama for several years. She attended the University of Alabama and graduated with a degree in communications and theatre. While she has always had a love for many types of art, Amanda flourished in technical theatre, where she could combine her love of the creative process with her type A personality.
Through the emergence of digital marketing, Amanda found that same passion for showcasing the art of amazing campaigns while satisfying her compulsive list-making nature. This journey took her to a few large advertising firms in Birmingham, Alabama, but she felt that her voice and her clients’ individuality could get lost in the shuffle. She then began looking for “opportunities to work with more boutique agencies that celebrate the whole client and not just the parts that can make them famous.”
After being introduced to Green Apple through a mutual friend, Amanda knew within 15 minutes of her first conversation with the company’s owner, Samantha, that this was where she was supposed to be. “It was so obvious that she genuinely and deeply cares about her people, employees and clients alike. Watching her passion for what she is building and how invested she is in each and every person made joining the Green Apple team the easiest decision of my adult life.”
As an integral part of the team, Amanda works closely with Samantha Pyle, our Chief Strategist, and Olivia Cooper, our Senior Client Relations Specialist, and Kara DiCarlo, our Client Relations Specialist, to ensure that all projects run smoothly, on time, and on budget. She also collaborates with Katie Jackson, our Digital Marketing Specialist, and Skylar Wooden, our Senior Content Strategist, to evaluate and implement strategies.
Amanda is constantly evaluating and updating our clients’ digital presence through SEO, social media, websites, directories, and affiliates. Her determination is one of the many exceptional characteristics she brings to the table. “Everything on the internet affects your brand and how successful you are. My goal is to get you on top and then keep you there.”
When she’s not working on digital strategy, Amanda has an “incessant need” to be outdoors, hiking and exploring whenever she can. In the summer, she plays Wiffle Ball on a neighborhood team. “My wife, Robin, and I take our two young children and two fur babies camping at least once a month in our Camper named Wanda the wanderer.”
We’re elated to have Amanda as part of our team!
