    Hi There, Thanks for stopping by. I'm guessing you have 1 question. What am I good at you ask? Sure, happy to answer that. By day I work at a paid search marketing agency in San Francisco, so I’m good at PPC management and optimization. But… You know, I’m sure you’re most concerned with results. Am I right? OK well here are results that I’ve achieved: ►► Lowered Cost Per Acquisition from an average of $65.00 to $30.00 for a client selling industrial storage buildings. That’s a decrease in cost per conversion of 116.7% ►► Increased conversion rate on a landing page 43% (with 95% statistical significance) ►► In 2 months increased PPC generated sales by 36.7% That’s pretty good right? Something else you should know… Some of the ad networks I work with: • Google Adwords • Yahoo/Bing/Msn • Facebook • BuySellAds • and more Tools of the Trade • Google Adwords Editor • Microsoft Adcenter Editor • • • Microsoft Excel • Google Analytics • and more I’ve worked with a lot of large companies like banks, car dealerships, big ecommerce companies (like one’s that spend $250,000 USD per month on Adwords). I can’t name drop here on my profile (besides that isn’t classy right? ;-), but if you message me I’m happy to discuss details of the work I do. If you can't tell... I’m really passionate about what I do. You should click the “Contact” button now, and tell me about your project. I hope to hear from you soon. Thanks for reading :-) P.S. I'm also good at conversion rate optimization. I run A/B tests & multivariate tests on web pages to improve their performance. I help grow email lists, and optimize entire user flows to get more conversions from the same traffic. Pretty interesting right? P.P.S. I am Landing Page Optimization certified by MECLABS. I write persuasive sales copy, and make wireframes for high converting web pages using Balsamiq Mock Ups. So if you need help with conversion rate optimization on your landing pages, I can help you with that too. You should click the “Contact” button now, and tell me about your project.
