Dan Stone, FounderDan Stone, M.S. is the founder of 360Village. Since 1998 he has worked with small and medium-sized businesses, government agencies and not-for-profit organizations across the U.S. to help them navigate the hurdles associated with interactive online marketing — digital video, communicating a professional online image and satisfying users on a variety of computer set-ups (different browsers, desktop, mobile, etc.). 360Village clients gain from Dan's ability to patiently communicate technical concepts in non-technical terms.
Dan started the business in the early days of the Dot Com boom, after serving as the Online Services Manager for the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) in Oakland, California. Dan's background in the public sector, in Internet technologies as well as city planning, has proven valuable for 360Village's local government clients. Prior to ABAG, Dan worked as a City Planner for Phoenix, Arizona and as a Planner for a private land use and environmental consulting firm in San Diego contributing to environmental impact reports as well as master plans for large-scale developments. He earned an interdisciplinary Master's degree in Environmental Economics from San Diego State University and a Bachelor's degree from U.C. San Diego with dual majors in Economics and Urban Studies & Planning.
Dan is the author of two technical books targeted at less than technical audiences. Web Site Marketing Essentials, published in 2007, and an e-book called An Econometrics Help & How To Guide that has sold thousands of copies to students and faculty in dozens of countries via PDF download since 1997.
Dan leads seminars and workshops for business owners, government administrators and C-level executives on topics relating to online marketing and web site development several times each year.
