Jacob Aull, principal of Zen Fires Digital Marketing, has been in Internet marketing since the label existed. He began doing web design and branding in the late ‘90s as an agency partner. While transitioning deeper into online and search marketing, he earned an M.S. in marketing from Georgia State’s Robinson College of Business in 2009. There he customized his own degree program, executing an independent capstone thesis on social media marketing. In 2010, the university asked him to write and teach its first course on social media marketing, which he continues today. Aull edited Prentice Hall’s first social media marketing textbook, and wrote its accompanying instructor’s manual. He co-founded and chaired the Atlanta Interactive Marketing Association Social Media SIG, and speaks widely on social and search marketing.
