Meet Eric

Eric Shanfelt

I’m Eric Shanfelt, founder and president of eMedia Strategist. For the past 20 years I’ve worked with dozens of consumer, B2B, and book publishers helping build their digital businesses. I’ve helped multiple media companies launch, highly-successful, multi-million-dollar online content communities with advertising, ecommerce and subscription revenue streams. I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t. We use proven, practical, audience-building and revenue-generating strategies to grow your digital business.
