Hey, I’m Dustin Trout. Over the last 8 years I’ve worked a various marketing agencies growing my knowledge when it comes to digital marketing. Anything new that no one wanted to touch, I volunteered to tackle it, which is where I grew my knowledge when it comes to digital marketing. My experience ranges from creating strategy to placing ads, to measuring performance of our campaigns.
By saying yes to everything, I have been able to grow my knowledge extensively when it comes to digital marketing and what it takes to help a company grow. I’ve been able to get first hand experience pulling levers and pushing buttons to see how one side effects the other and if we spend money here, it leads to sales over here and tieing all the data together to show results.
After having the opportunity to learn more and grow in these agencies, I noticed that there was a disconnect as to what we were recommending and what was really needed to help a client grow. It usually came down to what’s going to make more money for the agency rather than helping the client grow. I got tired of this and that’s when EIC was created. It was a way for me to take my experience and apply it how I wanted to rather than being forced to recommend ideas and strategies that just help the agency’s bottom line.
I’m excited for the growth of our company and even more excited to help businesses grow through digital communication.

Hey, I’m Eric and I’ve always loved being creative, learning and problem solving. In high school I ended up taking a Marketing class and realized I really enjoyed the whole process and ended up getting a degree in it.
After not finding any jobs that interested me in Wisconsin I moved to Phoenix for a fresh start. I started working in Marketing and getting some experience but was limited in how I could help out clients to what the company would allow. I wanted to help my clients more and experiment with different kinds of advertising to try to get clients the best ROI I could.
This led me to start working with Dustin who had a similar vision. Now I get to flex my creative muscles along with analyzing the data and I’m loving every minute of this journey.
I’m really excited to help other businesses and grow EIC in the process.
