ADM is a Professional Network, describe: "Why should anyone do business with you?"
Director of Search Marketing at L2T Media in Glenview, Illinois. I have become one of the leading automotive website marketing experts over the past 3 years with an expertise in search engine optimization and search engine marketing.
With an eye for the big picture and a history in optimizing websites for online visibility, I have focused on Search & Social Strategy for some of the top automotive groups in the nation. Bridging gaps between traditional marketing and internet marketing in order to provide a comprehensive solution to online visibility.
"What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?"
I have a passion for Internet Marketing. Google AdWords began in October of 2000. and I started utilizing the Google AdWords program in February of 2001. I was one of the the first companies to offer professional management of adwords. It was very exciting that I could have fun and make money with this new advertising called AdWords. It was a nice change from the dominating banner/display Ads that seemed to dominate the early Internet. From 2002 to 2006 we focused mostly on the Realtor industry. It was not competitive and the ROI was amazing. As the market stablized in 2006 I changed gears and created a company called Val clicks. This company specialized in lead generation for Plumbers, Electricians,HVAC, etc. We saw tremedous growth in the first 6 months but did not have the right team in place to handle the day to day operations. In early 2007, I was introduced to Liz Prior and Tom Moorhead who both oversaw the marketing for their respective Auto Groups (Patrick and Obrien). They were seeing a tremedous shift in the automotive industry from traditional to Online marketing and decided to start an online marketing company. I have the honor and distinction of being the 1st employee of L2T Media. I managed the online marketing for a couple dozen dealerhsip and things were growing until the crash of 2008. We barely kept our heads above water as dealers were all slashing their maketing dollars as no cars were being sold. We rode the storm for a few years and kept our focus on internet markeitng. Now I can happily say that we have over 600 clietns and I am overseeing the PPC team, SEO Team, Display Team, Social Media, and Repuatation Media. So theres my story
