"Excellent. Lots of this we know intuitively, but good to be able now to attribute it directly to Nielsen. Interested in ideas for action items for how to leverage social media with specific campaigns targeted at various demographic groupings."
"Excellent point that needs to be made again and again - that expensive leads are coming into, and being serviced by low wage points of contact who are often unaware of the value of those leads and how to appreciate them accordingly."

ADM is a Professional Network, please describe YOUR Value Proposition... Why do business with you?
My background involves directing Internet marketing campaigns for various clients including automotive at the Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 levels.
What interesting insights can you contribute to the ADM Community? What are you PASSIONATE about? Who are you?
My expertise is in search engine marketing (SEM & SEO) and social media platforms online. I have spent the last couple years as the Account Director for Search Marketing on Mazda overseeing the SEM campaign's conceptualization, strategic oversight, and tactical implementation.
I have an online marketing consultancy: www.InternetOMG.com, which provides Internet marketing consulting services to clients to help generate and drive traffic to their website. A big part of my work for my clients focuses on optimizing and monetizing their sites. Much of this is done via website usability enhancements - meaning to make their site as intuitive and usable as possible. My common sense rule is - if I were a first time visitor to my client's site, would I know what it is, where I should go (what to click on), and what they want from me?
I have spent much of the last ten years developing an extensive background in the search industry at Local.com, a leading local search engine, and with AltaVista, one of the Internet's pioneer search engines. I have also worked on the client side developing industry leading products and direct response campaigns for Fortune 1000 businesses such as Experian, Tribune, and Twentieth Century Fox. In January 2006, one of his campaigns was recognized by Nielsen//NetRatings as the third largest sponsored link advertiser on Google.
