    SEO Consultant, Writer and Saver of Lost Sites

    Spain - Tests: 11 - Portfolio: 5

    Is your website languishing in the doldrums? Is it nowhere to be found in the serps? Have you paid a fortune to have it designed but yet to see any organic visitors? Then contact me! Rescuing lost websites from oblivion and getting them up onto page 1 of Google is the kind of job I love. I was introduced to the world wide web in 1996 when the new technology was presented to a gathering of media and marketing professionals in Hong Kong. Its potential as a marketing medium was immediately apparent and it was not long before I was working with a designer to get a company website online. Soon after that in 1997 I became Director of Communications for a hotel group in Thailand. Prior to my arrival they had commissioned a very expensive corporate website. Though it looked beautiful, it got no visitors at all. My research into the site's lack of traffic was my introduction to SEO. I discovered that some web designers are only too happy to take your money to create a very pretty website without including even the most rudimentary elements of search engine optimisation. In my experience, even today, more than twelve years later, not much has changed in that regard. In 1999 I joined a start-up internet company as Director of Content. It went from strength to strength and within its first year had already garnered millions of dollars in angel investment from Sweden and Australia. At the time, my boss gave my work on content development a good deal of credit for attracting the investors. Since 2000 I have run my own websites and blogs and enjoy doing the seo and social marketing for them. However as I mostly work alone on my own websites I sometimes miss the excitement of collaborating on big projects. More than that though, I love doing SEO and website content work. I still love the potential the internet has to put small business companies right up there next to corporate giants and it still bothers me when web designers take money for a website that will never do what it was meant to do - attract web traffic and increase sales. So if you have a website that is in need of some help being found it would be my pleasure to help you get it up there where it belongs. On page 1 of Google.

    Marketing, Strategic Mgmt/Writer/SEO, SEM/Marketing Plans/MBA Grad

    United States - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 10

    Google Adwords & Bing Ads Certified MBA marketing pro with 14 years experience in utilizing SEM, SEO, brand development, and high-converting design and content tools to increase your ad spend performance. Experience with Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, and NGOs to develop effective website content which is tested and optimized to perform. I provide: Google Analytics In-Depth Reporting for Clients Not simply stating what Google Analytics reports, but why and how past and current performance can be improved for future ROI gains. Heatmap Analysis of Current Web Pages Do not rely on opinions about how your web pages look, but evaluate them with attention mapping tools to gauge whether your call-to-action is optimized. Competitor Analysis For both SEO and PPC, it is essential to have hard facts about your competitors’ digital marketing performance. By using a variety of tools, I find a wealth of critical information about your competitors’ keyword choices, backlinks, content, and most popular pages. PPC Campaign Development, Tracking, and Modification The correct way to run a PPC campaign is testing variables continuously until ad performance meets your conversion goals. It is not enough to drive traffic to a site if customers do not complete your call-to-action, whether that is sign-ups, sales, or registrations. Complete Analysis of Your Customer's Shopping Experiences From evaluating your website pages and checkout processes to communicating with your Customer Service Departments through email and by phone, I can show you what it is like to be one of your customers. All phone calls are conducted through Skype so a screencast can be made of the interaction. Brand Development Customers make an unconscious decision whether they will complete a call-to-action within a few seconds of landing on a website. Because of this, I help clients develop a strong brand image that inspires trust immediately and appeals to their specific target markets. Content Creation and Writing Blog entries, helpful articles, images, and videos are essential in providing customers with content quality and boosting SEO. I provide clients with valuable written content and long-term plans to sustain a content creation strategy that meets their SEO goals. Detailed Marketing Plans Every enterprise is unique, so marketing plans must be tailor-made for each organization. When consulting with clients, I take into consideration their target markets, human capital, product mix, organizational culture, and budgets to develop an actionable marketing plan aimed at sustaining growth.

    Strategic Expert: SEO, PPC, Copywriting, Conversion Optimization

    India - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 6

    2012 was a watershed year for SEO. Panda and Penguin was a double whammy. They wiped out the article spinning industry. It is no longer possible to even try the kool aid of 200 links for $20 or any such grand schemes of "forcing" Google to rank your site. The Google algorithm has started using social signals to filter out the irrelevant corners of the web. Irrelevant in this case are the pages which get little or no traffic. While your backlink profile is still an important part of your ranking. Those any ole links won't count any more. Those who've depended on the links from their spun articles have seen their rankings decimated. Links have to be earned. They have to be social. They have to be "real". Those Facebook Likes are important. However trying to buy FB likes is also a zero sum game. Another mirage. Eventually Google will figure out the FB Likes gaming pattern (since the data is in plain sight anyway) and start filtering out those too. SEO today has to be completely strategic and has to mesh with your conversion funnel. And, as good insurance, SEO should be just one of your traffic channels. You need to make sure you have a fairly even spread of traffic channels to prevent it being a stranglehold on your business. That said, neglecting SEO can be "very expensive". A lot of highly relevant traffic can get missed. A typical business needs a strategy that covers SEO, PPC, Email Marketing, and Social plus an efficient conversion funnel that is being constantly optimized. Hire me if you need a strategic approach that looks at your entire business and helps you figure out what is a best fit for you. I'll review your business and help you draw up an actionable marketing blueprint that takes into account your current realities. I can also help you roll it out and provide additional services related to these.
