David Carlson is the founder of the millennial personal finance blog Young Adult Money and author of the book Hustle Away Debt, which helps people pay off debt faster through side hustles.
David brings a unique perspective because of his diverse background. Besides being an author of a personal finance book and running Young Adult Money, David also has over seven years of corporate finance and accounting experience at a Fortune 20 company.
David has gained extensive social media, content, and influencer marketing experience and expertise through his more than five years of running Young Adult Money and working on content marketing campaigns with companies ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small startups, including Wells Fargo, PayPal, H&R Block, TransUnion, WalMart, Sears, and Kmart.
David recently was quoted in The CMO’s Guide to Influencer Technology and has been featured in The Washington Post, Forbes, Yahoo! Finance, Lifehacker, and Mental_Floss.
Content Creation & Co-Branded Campaigns
David is both a content creator as well as a “content manager.” David’s content creation experience dates back nearly a full decade when he was a political blogger. When he started Young Adult Money, he wrote as many as six posts a week. He has freelanced for the FeeX Blog and PBS, though his focus remains on creating content for Young Adult Money.
David can also act as a “content manager” for your website. He knows how to create a content strategy, write up requirements, hire contractors, manage an editorial calendar, and make sure that the right content – and the right quality of content – is being created for your website.
Even more importantly David has worked with many companies on co-branded campaigns. This typically involves a review or feature of a company’s product or service that appears on Young Adult Money. This is then paired with social media mentions.
