Press Kit for Joel Freund
Joel is a serial entrepreneur who went from barely speaking English to successfully running multiple companies.
He started his career at a technology wholesaler and retailer where he taught himself English.
Working there, he saw the negative attitude his coworkers had towards work. However, he refused to subscribe to this culture.
Joel took a positive approach every day, and was quickly promoted within the company to a management position. This led him to be recruited as CEO of a National Telecom company. He was tasked with bringing the product to market, but the marketing budget was $0, so Joel turned successfully to LinkedIn as a free, organic tool to get his name out there and start conversations with the right people.
His continued disillusionment with the company cultures he was in time and again led him to realize that if he wanted to work in a truly healthy environment, he would have to create it himself.
After helping two companies (free of charge) with getting the most out of LinkedIn by using the expertise he gained from doing this himself for the telecom company as CEO, Joel realized he could merge his LinkedIn expertise with his desire to create a healthy workplace, and Fluex Media was born.
He realized that there were many B2B professionals out there who could benefit from building a brand, but they almost all had one or two problems.
1) They didn’t have the time to consistently create quality content and ongoing conversation on LinkedIn.
2) They didn’t know how to maximize the platform and get noticed by the right people.
Fluex specializes in building personal brands for executives at B2Bs on LinkedIn by using their proven content strategy and unique content creation process with a commitment of only 4 hours each month on the client’s side.
They don’t just provide content – they execute on research, custom strategy, profile optimization, posting, engaging in industry posts, growth of your network, relationship nurturing, testimonial collection, and analytic reporting; all included in a no-commitment monthly fee.
