An active online participant & webmaster since 1993, all the way back to those mosaic browser days and a full-time, self-employed digital marketer focused on SEO, web development & analytics since 2011.
I help growth-seeking businesses with their search engine visibility, website requirements & web analytics – to generate leads, sell online, build brand awareness & successfully move their prospects along the marketing & sales funnel from wherever they join it.
If you’re a micro-business i.e. a business that operates on a very small scale – I can also manage any paid advertising, email marketing & social media marketing requirements you may have alongside your search engine visibility, website requirements & web analytics – providing you with a single-source digital marketing solution on an all-inclusive monthly retainer.
I write about what I know i.e. digital marketing, sales development, working solo, publishing, start-ups, domains, web3, fibre broadband, data analysis, finance, music, health, aging & tech – sending out free & premium newsletter editions on the last Friday of each month.
Previously I worked in the IT sector for 25 years with marketing, sales and management experience in the office automation, networking, telecoms, audio visual, intelligent buildings & broadband fibre niches at FTSE 350 & SME management team levels.
I’ve lived through web1, endured Web2 and am all over Web3. Exciting times.
I’m sometimes asked why I chose to pursue the digital marketer route after 25 years in IT business development? Well, albeit the actual IT business development work was for the most part enjoyable, by early 2011 when people were still expected to travel to conduct face to face meetings, I realised one dark, freezing cold winter’s morning at 4AM I no longer wanted to get up so early & travel up, down & across the UK to simply ‘get to work’ and began the process of identifying a suitable career switch that limited travel and would take advantage of the knowledge & experience I’d acquired up to that point in my life.
By mid-2012, my full-time, self-employed SEO & digital marketing vocation was up & running and I now have 10,000+ hours of real world SEO, web development & analytics experience in my rear view mirror & only travel when necessary.
