Co-Founder & Social Good Marketing Strategist, Do-Good Enforcer, Content Curator, Volunteer Evangelist and Givologist.
He re-energized the Heifer International grassroots volunteer group in Portland, Oregon, which he turned into one of the most influential and innovative grassroot groups in the organization. He created the Heifer Portland blog (which has been adopted by the entire organization), managed their Twitter and Facebook accounts, and won fundraising campaign contests. Noland has earned the respect of nonprofit and business leaders in the community.
In 2009, Noland started his own company, Bcause Media, to help catapult small businesses and small nonprofits into the social spaces with social communications marketing strategies. His expertise in both social media and marketing bring tremendous value to the ever-changing medium.
Bcause Media is a reflection of Noland’s personal mission statement: “You are defined by what you give.” He encourages his clients to get involved in the community through volunteering and charitable donations with the company’s pricing structure. It starts with the custom-made Bcause Media / TisBest Philanthropy Charity Gift Card, where you can make a donation to your favorite charity immediately.
