Hi! I’m Angela Rudolph and I love connecting with others through storytelling. I engage individuals with detailed videography, photography, and writing that is heartfelt and honest to get to the core of a story. Everyone has a unique story to tell, and I love helping people tell theirs.
This is my website where I explore topics that intrigue me;
- New ways to reach people;
- Trends in the fields of marketing and public relations;
- Up and coming innovations that excite communities into action;
- The best ways to measure engagement and interest to constantly improve and connect.
Basically, I’m obsessed with authentic marketing that focuses on the way we feel about, and interact with, each other; it’s what I like to call Connective Marketing.
I have an MBA from the University of Nevada, Reno. I also have a BA in Psychology. My education has given me a great foundation for marketing because it helps me understand business and people; the ways we communicate with one another, and the ways we enjoy consuming and retaining information about the world we live in. It’s also given me a background in research and analytics. The great thing about marketing is that with the tools available to marketers, you can get real-time, immediate feedback on what is working and what needs to change with your audience.
The best way to engage with individuals is to make them feel happy with truthful stories that paint a picture and make them laugh, share, or ask questions.
My favorite quote is by Maya Angelou: “…people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Using real-world examples and telling those stories through writing, videos, and photos helps people to feel an idea or concept. Once you can get people to feel, you’ll be memorable.
I recently earned my MBA at the University of Nevada, diving into topics ranging from accounting, to logistics, to marketing, and organizational leadership. I’ve also had the opportunity to explore international business through the Nevada Global Business program where I’ve studied in Singapore and in Argentina.
I have worked in marketing since 2012 in a variety of positions. My experience ranges from marketing nutraceuticals, to telling the story of the SPCA of Northern Nevada to help puppies and kittens, to my most recent employment at the University of Nevada, Reno, where I’m highlighting the important but somewhat mysterious work of the office of information technology! You can see a thorough breakdown of my professional experience on LinkedIn (while you’re there, let’s connect!). I’ve also earned a social media marketing certificate from the University of Nevada’s Extended Studies Program. I am the Vice President of Communications on the board of the Reno-Tahoe American Marketing Association where I’ve also served as a discussion leader for their annual spring conference.
I’ve been in Nevada since 2001 and before that I lived in Portland, OR. I’m instilled with a love for nature. Anytime I can be outside hiking, swimming, snowboarding, or playing in any way, it lights my soul on fire. I love traveling the world to meet new people, experience different cultures, taste different flavors, and drink with the locals. So far, I’ve been to 14 different countries outside the U.S. and I am always planning my next adventure. Thank you for joining me in my exploration of all things storytelling and marketing!
