Bio

I work as an SEO/SEM specialist, based in Christchurch. In that capacity I have been involved in optimising hundreds of sites to perform their best in Google search results. I also have an advanced knowledge of WordPress development which allows for a much deeper level of optimisation than typical "surface level" SEO purveyors.

 

This also removes the need for double handling that often occurs when you get an SEO audit done. Typically the SEO specialist will be able to make suggestions, but not actually carry them out. You then need to contact your development company to get them to apply the changes. This increases the chances of miscommunication and wasted time, plus you will end up needing to pay two invoices at the end of the day.

 

So, my advice would be to skip the middle man and get an SEO specialist who can also build and understand websites, you will get better results for less money! 

Expertise

AdWords CMS Platforms: WordPress, Squarespace, Oracle Portal CSS EDM Template Google Analytics HTML SEM SEO

My Skills

SEO

I specialise in optimising sites to rank well in Google. I use SEO keyword tracking software to monitor progress and deliver concrete results.

SEM

I use Google Adwords for Search Engine Marketing as it has a huge range of options and delivers far superior results to Bing Ads which are not seen much, and Facebook Ads which have a huge number of accidental clicks. SEM is a great way to kick start a new business and you can easily gauge return on investment which is a huge advantage over more traditional marketing options.

Recent Employment

SEO / SEM Specialist / 2011 - Present / Wired Internet Group

I started out as a designer, moved into development and later became interested in, and eventually specialised in, search engine optimisation once realising how critical it was to creating websites that deliver results.

Qualifications

Diploma of Multimedia (Natcoll) Diploma of Graphic Design (Natcoll) Graduate Diploma in 3D and Animation (CPIT)
