Jim Cota

Before starting Rare Bird, Jim spent eight years as the Creative Director for an award-winning regional shop. In those years, he learned to quickly assess the business needs of clients to better devise strategies to help them improve their marketing communications and win market share. Since the late ’90s, he and his two partners have been focusing on all things web-related, leveraging the power and potential of this medium to enhance client sales and allow even small fish to be noticed in the big pond. How do they accomplish this? Through the creation of highly usable (and easy-on-the-eye) websites, robust e-commerce platforms, sound marketing strategies and, always, an eye toward the next big thing.

You can learn more about Jim and his busy family on his personal blog, or follow him on Instagram or Twitter. Mostly what you need to know is that Jim could never, ever successfully be in the Witness Protection Program. His Starbucks’ habit would totally blow his cover.
