Content Manager, digital marketer, editor, copywriter
Information Services | Guildford, United Kingdom, GB
I am a highly motivated and dynamic Internet professional with an enthusiastic, dedicated and methodical approach. My extensive repertoire of skills includes almost everything required to run and maintain high traffic websites with very capable copywriting talents, expertise in SEO, social media and digital marketing, supported by years of web design. I am an exceptional communicator who is able to liaise clearly and effectively at all levels.
I currently work as the Social Media Outreach Officer for the charity Blind Children UK.
I was the Webmaster for CTC, the national cycling charity in Guildford, where I maintained the Drupal 6 website and the organisation's Drupal 7 and Wordpress projects. I also provided IT support to the organisation in Active Directory & Office 365 and hardware setup.
Prior to that I was Researcher, Web Designer and later Editor at the small business advice website is4profit.com for 13 years where I was again the Webmaster, responsible for web design, maintenance, digital marketing, organic traffic, social media, email marketing campaigns and writing & promoting business advice articles, business news and business blog posts.
Since 2000 AD I have run my own business providing web design, graphic design and IT support although now I tend to focus on selling domain names, providing web hosting & email, website updates and SEO/digital marketing.
Personal web projects include long-running blog, environmental and automotive sites.
I am well versed in HTML/XHTML, CSS, Fireworks & Dreamweaver (since the Macromedia days), used to be a whiz with Flash but am now using Adobe Creative Suite including Photoshop. I know Joomla, Wordpress and now Drupal CMS, prefer LAMP stacks, but still offer and set up MS Exchange for my clients when they need more than just IMAP. When it comes to SEO I live on Google Analytics and Google Webmaster Tools, Bing Webmaster Tools and supplement this with Microsoft IIS SEO, Xenu Linksleuth, Screaming Frog, SEMrush...
