Without "Me," it's just "Aweso"
I know, I know, I am quite the genius.
I speak 24 languages, have traveled to every country, and once defeated Steven Seagal in an arm wrestling match before he drop kicked me and said he was going to take me to "the bank - the blood bank!"
Okay, let me start over.
None of this is true.
I have a hard enough time speaking the English language (it keeps changing on me), and I was born, raised, and still currently reside in the Washington, D.C. metro area.
Also, I have never met Steven Seagal.
But I did once meet someone who claimed to be his personal assistant back in the day. Though I am still not sure if this person was telling the truth.
The real truth is (if you can handle it), I am Eric Koch.
The one cool dude who enjoys being by your side helping you to skyrocket your brand on social media (I am being serious here - really)!
I also enjoy being around those I love most - my beautiful wife (going on 14 years) and three teenage boys - Alvin, Simon, and Theodore --- ALVIN!!!
Those aren't their real names (still being serious!)
The Creative Marketing Zone is my 4th child!
I started this as a side business a few years back, and eventually it took on a life of its own.
Who would have thought the countless hours, days, months, and years burning the midnight oil while working full-time and trying to raise a family would pay off?
Well, it did. And now I am here.
Which brings me to the present...
No longer do I take on clients.
Instead, I enjoy working with students enrolled in my online courses to help them skyrocket their brands on social media.
I also enjoy providing valuable free resources, and hosting my fun weekly podcast in which I interview other marketing experts who share their proven strategies and tactics to help you build and grow your business.

...A few more interesting things you should know about me:
- I am not related to the Koch brothers.
- I graduated from Virginia Tech with a marketing degree in 2004 (Go Hokies!) - and yikes, so much has changed since 2004!
- My first several years post college I worked in many sales environments - cold calling, pounding the pavement, smiling and dialing - you name it! Such valuable lessons for sure!
- Most of my online digital marketing experience is self-taught minus the content marketing part - I learned this while working at an agency. I have spent years testing to see what works and what doesn't, and I am always trying new things - this is what makes marketing so much fun!
- My role models are Lewis Howes and Amy Porterfield.
- I am a HUGE Back to the Future fan. In fact, each year on my birthday I enjoy watching all three films. I am also a big Coming to America fan!
Now over to you!
I want to hear from you.
