My name is Jimmy Smith and I am the author of this website, JimmySmith.org. This site discusses political, social, and religious issues facing the United States and the world and any other topics that might be on my mind such as marketing or technology.
Family: I am married to the kind and beautiful Heather. We have six children and reside in the Dallas, Texas area. Click here to visit Heather’s website Simply Fresh Designs.
Work Experience: I work for Hilti, an international power tool manufacturer, as a Digital Analytics Manager. In my previous career stops, I worked for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where I spent three years as the web analytics product manager and another four years as product manager over the Seminary and Institute websites and employee intranet. Prior to that I was a Marketing Analyst for FedEx, and before that I was a Software Engineer for Motorola.
I have a BS in Electronics Engineering Technology from Brigham Young University which I earned in 2001. I also have an MBA with a Strategic Marketing emphasis which I earned from Arizona State University in 2005.
- Digital Marketing: My professional interests include digital marketing, web analytics, search engine optimization (SEO), and web usability. I also do freelance consulting on those and related topics.
- Latter-day Saint Mission Prep: In 2009, I started the Latter-day Saint Missionary Preparation website. The site is geared toward youth of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and is designed to help them prepare both physically and spiritually for a mission.
- Joseph Smith Quotes: In 2015, I founded a website called Joseph Smith Quotes where I, surprise surprise, post quotes I like from Joseph Smith. As I have studied the life and teachings of Joseph Smith, I have been profoundly influenced by his writings and sermons. How marvelous it must of been to hear that man speak. I know he was an inspired prophet of God to help us be better followers of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
