Want to run your own SEO agency and have the experience and drive to make it happen? Great. You’re hired.

For seven years, I have been operating a successful “boutique” SEO consultancy, servicing some of the top websites in the world like Walmart.com, LATimes.com & Bing, incredible start-ups and plenty of SMBs. There’s a lot going on and it’s time to bring in someone who wants to help me take on the world.  You are obsessive about how to make the trains run on time and you get a thrill up your leg by making it happen.  You know what you don’t know and you see that as a good thing.  You have done a lot of SEO grunt work in your day and you know how to take some keyword research, GWT data and some link analysis and bake it into a SEO strategy without breaking a sweat.  Maybe you even enjoy doing linkbuilding.  More power to you. You really want to build something that you can be proud of. What are you waiting for?  Let’s make it happen.  It’s going to be an amazing ride.
