First of all, thanks for stopping by and wanting to know more about me…unless of course you have big thumbs or bad eyes and accidentally clicked the “About Marc” button instead of “Blog” in which case, feel free to go about your business. If you are still here, keep reading.
I’ve had a bit of a whirlwind of a career over the past 20 years that all began as a well known Broadway musician…this is the part of the discussion where most people look at me like a dog looks at a ceiling fan. How do you go from performing on Broadway to speaking, writing and consulting on search engine optimization, social networking and increased website conversion? Let me explain…
I’ve always been an entrepreneur by nature. I really didn’t have much of a choice as I was pretty much fired from every job I had as a kid for always insisting on doing things my way. As it turns out, companies generally don’t like it when you do that…unless of course you own the company, so I started my own company. Successfully promoting my way to Broadway as a musician told me that I had a real knack for marketing, so in 2001 I picked up a copy of PhotoShop and started a website design and search engine optimization company called Sound-n-Vision. For over 11 years now I have been directly involved in the success of well over 1,000 organizations from local Mom and Pop shops to Internet startups to non-profits to Fortune 500 Companies and everything in between by helping them to develop new strategies for success using website design, search engine optimization and social media.
OK, Back to the Present
With all of the success I have been able to achieve for my clients, I figured that it was a natural transition to share my real world experience and expertise on successful Internet Marketing strategies with people from all walks of life. I don’t want to brag or anything (yeah, right) but I have been told that I have a gift for taking otherwise complex subjects like search engine optimization, social media marketing, increasing conversion rates and other marketing strategies and breaking them down in a way that anyone can easily understand and take immediate action on.
