Hi there 🖐
My name is Chris and you are probably here because you want to make sure I know what I’m doing with this whole SEO thing. I will chat a bit about my experience below, but if you are more interested, you can take a look at reviews of my SEO work here.
You are also welcome to connect with me on LinkedIn here.
I have always been fascinated by marketing. I have worked in marketing for almost 20 years (and I’m not that old, so that’s a solid chunk of my existence). I have an MBA from the University of Arizona in Tucson Arizona (go Wildcats!). That means I spent a lot of money to set up pivot tables and stay up late reading case studies, most of which I have forgotten by now.
When I stumbled upon search engine optimization, I was instantly hooked. I love the power of being able to influence how many people see your message without having to pay per impression or click. Ever since then, I have been all in on SEO. My wife and I launched a digital marketing agency in 2013 and sold it in 2017. That agency is currently a 1M+ annual revenue agency.
Why did we sell? Well, that’s complicated. Actually, I’m complicated.
You see, money is great, but it isn’t everything to me. I enjoy people. I enjoy SEO. I enjoy my family. I want a life where all of these things are working together in balance and the agency life (well, at least our first iteration) didn’t provide that for me. So, we sold and haven’t looked back. Since then, I’ve launched an e-commerce site, grown a large directory site and freelanced for some local, national and international businesses. Through all of this, I found that my absolute favorite thing to do is to provide SEO audits for small-to-medium sized businesses.
