Effective and Beautiful Marketing Communications for Retail and the Trade

Ryan Zweng started assisting on PopDrop video shoots in 2012. Ryan's commercial art background combined with well-honed online marketing skills have led to his current role as Online Marketing Specialist for PopDrop Design.


In 2010, Ryan partnered with LinkedIn's Will Hambly to run affiliate marketing websites for Intuit QuickBooks software, where they utilized Google-driven technologies to boost sales for the software developer. This eventually led to Ryan creating the blog "Smarts Not Hard" offering useful information to aspiring online marketers.


Ryan's video production skills were developed while working as the Production Coordinator for a Japanese television producer Duo Creative Communications. Here Ryan not only helped produce some of Japan's top tv shows, but even did some on-camera work performing non-speaking roles.
