After working for several years in the fields of telecommunication & financial analysis, Barry believes he has found his calling with internet marketing. He has always enjoyed working with numbers – be it analyzing football statistics, researching how far you can see when flying at 35,000 feet (230 miles!), or creating a spreadsheet in which he categorized the 3000+ songs on his ipod by the decade in which they were released. (He was happy to confirm that the 80’s ranked dead last in total songs.)So when Barry discovered SEO & internet marketing – fields which are built around collecting, analyzing & improving upon metrics – he jumped right in. He specializes in SEO, landing page optimization, pay-per-click campaigns, social media marketing, and scouring the web for the latest & greatest marketing tools & methodologies.
