Most online marketers have a few blogs that they follow to keep a pulse on whats happening in the industry and to inspire improvement. Over the last few months Jason Acidre’s blog has constantly put out great content that has made me a better SEO. He ails from the Philippines but does SEO work for clients from the US to the UK all the way down under to Australia. Jason is a smart SEO with a lot of hustle, and glad he could share some of his tips.
I’ve been reading a great book called “Call To Action” that SEER Interactive encourages all its clients to read, so i made sure to pick one up and start reading it.
One of the biggest “aha” moments I’ve had so far while reading this book is when they discuss how a company should emphasize a products “Uses” and instead of trying to explain all of it’s “Features”. This is such a small distinction but as I started thinking about some of my favorite presentations I realized that this is exactly what they did. They focused on a few features and then emphasize on all the different uses of those features, and the big impact that those will have in the person’s life.
I am writing this post as I am in the middle of unpacking from my move out to Philadelphia to work for one of the top SEM agencies in the country, SEER Interactive. It is still a bit surreal and I find myself reflecting back to see how I got to this point only after graduating couple of years ago from BYU-Idaho and started a job in a completing different field.
I have learned a lot on what it takes to discover and go after my dream job and I’d like to share to help those who are still looking.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity i’ve had to work at Anchor Wave in Tucson Arizona. They are a great company and have sparked my enthusiasm for seo and online marketing! The time has now come for me to move on to my next adventure, and I’m looking to land my SEO dream job. What that is i’m not exactly sure yet, but I do know it won’t be simple! To best prepare for tests and interviews i’ve been doing a lot of research and here are some of the best articles and videos i’ve found. I hope they help you like they’ve been helping me.
2012 is here! What does the next year hold for us in search marketing and social media? I don’t have a crystal ball that works, but I have collected some of the top articles from the experts on what 2012 will be like for SEO and Social Media Marketers.
I also included some of the best people to follow on Twitter to stay on top of SEO and Social Media trends through this year.
I woke up this morning and was checking the usual social networks before I head into work. I did a double take this morning when I came across this interesting character who viewed my LinkedIn Profile.

I had the pleasure of talking with Jesse Stay of SocialToo.com and author of Google+ For Dummies and Facebook Application Development For Dummies. It was such an amazing conversation that I wish I would have skyped and recorded it to be able to share with everyone instead of my bullet point notes. He is a truly amazing author and knowledgeable social media pro that I had the pleasure of speaking with. ( You can tell by my picture how excited I was to talk with him) (more…)
