Founder of Yoko Co, Co-Founder of Blood Donor Mobile. Fan of straightforward simplicity and common sense in design and experience, be it visual, audial or tangible.
Over the last 15 years I've designed, built, overseen and managed websites for companies ranging from small startups to Fortune 50 brands.
Ultimately I lead a team that designs and builds with business objectives in mind, with a critical focus on measurable, tangible results.
I'll help you review, or create, your objectives, and work from there to determine how your site needs to work for your users, on various devices, in different scenarios. i.e. a desktop user looking for an auto garage is going to have different needs than a mobile user in a broken down care looking for an auto garage.
We'll discuss these scenarios and, as needed, help you build a plan, or requirements list to best address your audience and their needs.
Over the last 15 years I've helped outline, script, storyboard, design and animate videos for companies ranging from small startups to Fortune 50 brands.
Currently, I lead a team that creates this content with business objectives in mind - what story needs to be told, what action do you want the viewer to take, or what emototion do you want them to feel?
On our call I can help you review, or create, your outline, and work from there to determine how your video needs to serve your audience.
We're asked about this all the time. While there are a few factors that will come into play, one of the more important ones to consider at this junction is who will be updating the site on an ongoing basis and how much experience do they have doing so?
If you are planning to have the authors submit and post their articles directly, it would most likely make sense to use Wordpress. If your authors happen to know a bit more than the average person about simple html and css coding, then a custom site might be in order.
But, to really get to the heart of the issue, we'd need to talk a little further about your big picture goals and objectives for Rewire Daily, and then see which of these options is going to better support those objectives. If you'd like to chat a bit further we can set up a quick call. Hope this helps!
I had the great pleasure of working with Chris on a special creative project while he was with CBS radio. He immediately understood the benefits and nuances of this innovative concept and went the extra mile to make it happen. I would happily recommend Chris as a business partner in any endeavor.
Chris worked for me at CBS Radio and I was sad to see him leave. He is customer focused and has the great ability to solve problems with creative new media solutions.
Yoko is a natural creative thinker. He was always willing to go the extra mile to make his clients happy with creative radio commercials, even assisting me with character voices and improvised sound effects (ask him about the O Mi Bod spot we did).
He brought new business to WJFK from every angle for our online presence and on the air.
Not only is he great at his job, he's also one of the most professional and courteous colleagues you could ever ask for.
Chris always goes above and beyond the call of duty. He is results driven project manager who understands that details make all the difference. Our team at Human Productivity Lab worked very closely with Chris and I could always count on him when something needed to get done and done right.
The most important trait Chris has is his ability to be proactive and find solutions to issues and problems before they even arise. We strongly recommend him.
As one of the original founders of the Charity Hockey Classic; Chris Yoko has proven himself as an invaluable asset to and friend of Inova Blood Donor Services. His enthusiastic energy and support has helped develop an annual event which has raised over $80,000 for the Inova Health System and looks to eclipse $100,000 before the end of 2011. We at IBDS feel incredibly fortunate to have the support from local community partners and organizations like Yoko Consulting which have been a tremendously philanthropic company and a look forward to working with them on future community project initiatives.
The thing I find most compelling about working with Chris Yoko is his ability to listen, discern, and articulate the nuances of what I'm looking for in both web design aesthetics and functionality. He has an extremely keen grasp of both the technical and creative aspects of website design and SEO. In addition, Chris's strong marketing acumen plus an awareness of current marketing trends make him an effective partner for companies needing a strong presence in today's interractive social networking landscape. He is able to develop and implement high quality, tailored approaches/strategies that provide both analytic capability as well as interractive useability. His skill sets have allowed many organizations to effectively thrive in today's 24/7/365 social media cycle.
I had the pleasure of working with Chris on a number of projects, and at every occasion he was able to zero in on the core issues affecting both the organization's needs and how those needs could best be satisfied and represented in the targeted market space we were working under. He became a key ally and strategic partner, and continues to be the "Go-To" resource for me and other professionals who need help in growing their businesses and creating a strong presence in this highly competitive virtual space we call the Internet.
Having Chris create my website was the best investment I've made in years. He has great ideas, just give him your background info and companies facts. You'll benefit from his work done for your business.
Chris is an extremely knowledgeable advertising and new media professional. He has a broad depth of understanding of traditional and new media in print, radio, television and web. With both a tactical and creative mind, Chris engages a comprehensive strategy in assisting and serving his customers so that their goals are met. Always learning, Chris brings all the tools to the table. I highly recommend his work to any client seeking representation. Without a doubt, Chris will deliver.
