History of Corey Creed

After finishing school in Massachusetts, Corey Creed spent over ten years in the New York City area, where he developed, coordinated, and conducted training for a large-scale ERP software implementation.

In 2002, Corey began working more deeply with search engines when he temporarily returned to Massachusetts.

In 2003, Corey relocated to Black Mountain, NC (just east of Asheville) where he started Hippo Internet Marketing (a division of Hippo Inc).  Over the years, Hippo Internet Marketing enjoyed working with various clients including Volvo Construction, Chimney Rock Park, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, and over 100 others.

In 2007, Corey relocated Hippo Internet Marketing to Cornelius, NC (just north of Charlotte).   At the same time, a transition was made from working for clients to developing repeatable in-person two-day training classes on Search Engine Optimization, Google AdWords, Social Media, Blogging, and other Internet Marketing topics.

In 2011, Corey began a special focus toward online video.  Hippo Internet Marketing Training opened a new online portal, named Hippo Academy.  He was also hired on as Director of Training for Social Fresh.

In 2013, Corey enjoyed serving as the Director of Client Services for Ephricon (a leading SEO firm in Charlotte, NC) up until is was sold later that year.

In 2014, Corey co-founded Rhino Goods Inc with Ryan Courteau, which specializes in creating brands, especially selling on Amazon.

In 2017, Corey moved to Florida, and co-founded Collected Foods LLC with three others, which creates custom spice blends and other food products.

Since 2018, Corey has been successfully getting his e-commerce businesses to basicaly run themselves.  This frees him up for interesting projects and helping clients in Florida. He enjoys helping businesses nationally via Artisan Internet Marketing, now located in Sanford, Florida.

Corey continues to be deeply involved with Internet Marketing and E-Commerce in every aspect.  This includes SEO, Local SEO, Amazon, Online Advertising, and Social Media. He stays informed of industry trends and acceptable practices.
