OBU marketing students give back to local insurance company by boosting online presence

Oklahoma Baptist University marketing students Shawnee and Oklahoma have partnered with a local insurance company, Insurance and Financial Design, to improve their online presence and exposure. They gained valuable experience working with their client. Thanks to Dr. Daryl Green’s Marketing Analytics and Intel class, they were able to give back to local small business owner, Julie Hokit. This better prepared them for real-world scenarios outside of the classroom.

Students Graham Stiefel and Anadalight Vazquez worked alongside Julie Hokit of Shawnee, Oklahoma to help her local insurance business grow. Julie started her business in the summer of 2020 and slowly grew into a successful and enjoyable insurance company. Even though Julie got started during the pandemic, it didn’t stop her from gaining momentum towards a very productive and successful small business. It offers a multitude of different types of insurance that best suit its customers. Graham said, “It was interesting to be able to learn more about Julie’s business and the diversity of insurance.”

Julie strives to serve her community and make her presence known. However, as an emerging business, getting exposure can be very difficult. Graham and Anadalight stepped in, thanks to a great opportunity offered by Dr. Daryl Green. During this micro-internship, OBU students searched for information to help Julie make her presence known. Throughout the semester, Graham and Anadalight learned the importance of marketing analytics. They were able to work with intelligence specialists to best meet Julie’s needs. They managed specialists hired through FIVERR to increase important citations for her business, post numerous social media ads, and propel Julie to the top of Google search results. “Being able to help Julie achieve her goals while learning about my future job was great. I learned so much from Dr. Green and Julie,” Anadalight said.
