Michele Judkins - Digital Marketing Specialist

Michele Judkins

Digital Marketing Analyst

Michele was the first employee at Linden Digital Marketing and has helped drive the business forward since 2018. She was an integral part of the launch of the company, while attending RIT to obtain her undergraduate degree. She graduated in 2020, with a BS in New Media Marketing and an immersion in Psychology.

Michele loves using psychology on a daily basis to build key audiences, and envision the perfect pathways used to convert new users into returning customers. She is always refining customer journey touch points to create evergreen marketing funnels for Linden’s clients. One of the favorite aspects of her job is search engine optimization (SEO) to help clients show up at the top of searches for their most essential products and services. Some of her recent accomplishments include:

  • Lead the launch of a new website for a government non-profit client in June of 2021 with a new strategy which included text searchable blog sections to increase organic traffic. This was done by converting image and pdf files into searchable content, and restructuring the site to be search engine optimized. This, in tandem with Facebook ads and Google ads lead to an increase of users by about 332% since June, and a steady increase of key event completions monthly (about 1,043% increase since July), helping them to meet their conversion goals.

  • TorcSill.com Helped develop a branded and non-branded SEO strategy, which included claiming all of the company’s nationwide locations on Google My Business, involving careful planning and coordination with employees. This effort increased phone calls to the company by 366% in just 2 months.

A Rochester native, Michele enjoys painting, swimming, and wandering around record shops and museums.

Daniele DiPasquale

Digital Marketing Coordinator

Daniele’s focus at Linden Digital Marketing is design. She has a diverse background of graphic design experience; her formal training includes print design and production, design for digital platforms, photography, and graphic arts history.

A key objective that is intrinsic to her design principles is that every single design has the potential to be great—each project deserves design solutions that are well-informed, deliberate, and built to the highest of standards.

A New Jersey transplant, Daniele came to Rochester to pursue a degree in Visual Media from Rochester Institute of Technology. Her BFA studies allowed her to gain skills in many creative fields, and that exposure now helps inform her design decisions in ways that knowledge in only one realm could not. This was made clear by her work with clients like The Vignelli Center for Design Studies and the Melbert B. Cary, Jr Graphic Arts Collection, where she took on many roles such as creative director, designer, curator, photographer, and project manager.

One of Daniele’s latest successes is with her work with RocVentures, a rock climbing gym here in Rochester, NY. An avid climber herself, she has been involved in refreshing RocVentures’s brand through the redesign of their website, creating new content and a modern aesthetic for their social media, and offering advice on community involvement and expansion of their current offerings. With her support RocVentures revenue has increase 70% year over year.

Daniele enjoys rock climbing as often as possible, identifying typefaces in the wild, and stands firm in her belief that music peaked in 2005.
