Owner/CEO | Jonathan Farley

 Our Story

Owner and President Jonathan Farley got his start in marketing immediately after college, working in sales and on-air talent at Portland’s up and coming rock radio station, FM101. He progressed in radio sales, becoming Senior Account Executive at WMGX Magic 93. For the next 18 years, he was partner and Creative Director for a Portland marketing firm that specialized in sports, resort and retail marketing nationally. He left to take on the task of integrating traditional print and direct mail with the burgeoning digital sales channel for a national direct response supplement company. Getting the itch to get back out on his own again, he started Smaht! Ideas, with the goal of putting all of his years of experience in various marketing and sales channels to use for small to medium businesses – while retaining two clients that his relationship with goes back to the early 90’s.

Now, with the whole world integrated digitally, Smaht! Ideas puts together custom creative teams that fit the needs and the budgets of their clients, to be able to deliver custom designed solutions that produce measurable ROI.
