Known around these parts as the Web Gnome, Nick Armstrong keeps Giant Gnome’s web presence running.
In his “real world” job, Nick Armstrong has declared war on business as usual by being unapologetically awesome at making marketing FUN for small business owners. He rocks at explaining difficult-to-grasp marketing and web technology concepts, making them much less scary.
Nick’s foray into audio drama started around the campfire with his grandfather and old tapes of The Shadow.
Nick’s small business marketing firm WTF Marketing has made marketing fun again for a large number of happy clients, including several multi-million dollar businesses and mom-and-pop shops in his hometown of Fort Collins, Colorado and beyond. He leverages a decade of hands-on marketing experience in building community and helping businesses tell stories, alongside over 15 years of web design experience.
Just before his son was born in 2014, Nick created the small business web design firm Pixelated On Purpose to help small businesses start on the right foot online. He founded the Digital Gunslingers in 2009, teaching $5 classes on social media and marketing concepts and donating all the proceeds to charities in Fort Collins, Colorado. Nick also organizes, curates, and hosts TEDxFoCo.
Nick frequently presents at Ignite Fort Collins, and has delivered talks – almost all of them packed with humor – ranging in topic from small business to marketing etiquette to the Prime Directive. Check it out:
