Hi, I’m Joel.

Joel Gratcyk at a brewery in Chicago, IL.

I’m a Senior Digital Consultant with 25+ years of experience in delivering tailored online solutions for a diverse set of clients.

I’m a passionate leader and technology educator skilled at taking complicated technical terms and making them easily understandable in the realms of SEO, Social Media, WordPress, Domains, Hosting, and Project Management. 

For the past two and a half decades, I’ve been working with teams (and independently) to make websites better, faster, and more effective

I also enjoy running crowdfunding campaigns, helping non-profits shine online, producing online content that generates traffic, and traveling globally as time and responsibilities allow.

I’m a people person with tech skills. That means I’m an effective manager because I understand what needs to be done on the backend in order to perform for customers and salespeople on the front end.

A Midwest Boy Who Traveled The World

I grew up in the Midwest with a love for helping people improve their lives. That lead me to spend nearly a decade from my teens until my mid-20s doing volunteer work around the globe. Humanitarian aid work and disaster relief efforts helped me learn more than any classroom could have taught me.

The best way to live a fulfilled life is to dream big, fail hard, and try again.

I’ve been to 6 of the 7 continents. A few of my favorite countries to have visited are The Netherlands, India, Australia, Argentina, Czech Republic, and Ghana. Antartica is on the “I still need to travel there” list!

Dollars Raised

Raising money for clients I’ve formulated and prepared pitches for in the non-profit and startup arenas is so satisfying.

I’m a 100% remote professional, adept at solving challenges through innovative approaches, and am passionate about applying my expertise in a way that is accessible to everyone.

Finally, I’m committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in all professional endeavors. As a lifelong learner, I am always seeking new knowledge and growth opportunities in everything I do.

Always Learning,

I was in 5th grade when I started to sign all of my letters with those words.

It’s a life philosophy that has never left me. Even decades later I sign my email and letters with it.

Every day I learn something new. Sometimes it is about technology, travel, business, history, humanity, or any number of other interesting subjects to me.

I’d be honored to schedule a call with you and see how we can work together on your digital goals. Cheers.
