Employment history:

Jul 2017-to current date. Web content editor, SEO, online marketing.

Jul 2016-May 2017. Web content editor, SEO, online marketing, website designer for a pharmaceutical company in West Sussex. From an initial zero ranking I ensured that the company had 2nd place ranking for a search phrase in Google, out of 600,000 other competing websites.

Aug 2001-Jul 2016. Working freelance for various companies, mainly contract work, for website developing, online marketing, offline marketing, web content editor, email marketing, SEO, proofreading, uploading content, online marketing, offline marketing, website designer, CMS and database administration.

Since 2001, my continuing research and study into digital marketing ensures that I enable websites to have high rankings within the major search engines. All techniques used are always totally whitehat, all end-results being 1st page and pure organic, with no payments ever made to any search engines.  A recent success has been to get a website to 2nd place on Google out of 40.5 million competing websites.

During this time, I have also been involved with HTML email marketing and the background coding mechanics of email delivery, to ensure the maximum chance of emails getting through the email filters of the major email providers/programmes. The profit margins of businesses suffer when emails are not viewed by the recipient, simply because they have been filtered off into the spam/trash/junk folders and so the intended recipient never actually sees it! I employ my skills and experiences to help avoid this problem. I have carried out various email marketing campaigns, sometimes involving over 40,000 records. I have also carried out online and offline marketing, website designing and website maintenance, using HTML and CSS.

Proficient in all of the Microsoft office programmes; Access databases, Excel spreadsheets, Outlook for emails and Publisher for newsletters, leaflets, etc (as a result of studying at college, I have City & Guilds qualifications at intermediate level, in MS Access, MS Excel and MS Outlook) and have also used Adobe Photoshop for images (animated & stills) plus Powerpoint. I am totally proficient with FTP programmes, website hosting services, WHM, cPanels, crons and all administration relating to domain names and website hosting.

I am completely happy in a junior or senior role and am happy to be part of a team or to work on my own initiative. I am also a self starter and very focused to accomplish a given task.

I have built fully working computers from individual parts, so can go 'slightly' technical if need be.

Interests: Besides spending time with family and friends, I also enjoy cycling and circuit training.
