Erik Bartell is a respected leader in both the military and fitness communities.

After separating from the military, Erik has gone on to not only lead but also consult for some of the most successful brands in fitness and the veteran world. With advanced experience in community marketing and social media/brand development, Erik is able to guide organizations in developing their overall marketing strategy and implementation. Outside of consulting for major brands Erik has built out extensive influencer and affiliate platforms. These platforms have allowed brands to recruit ambassadors, deliver private content, sell products and training programs, and interact directly with their followers without the constraints of social media. Erik also has experience handling brand and influencer partnerships bringing millions of impressions and reach to brands he has consulted for. Possibly the biggest impact for the brand however, is building strategic platforms that allow them to take back ownership of their followings data, something both Instagram and the influencer themselves don't give them.
