LinkedIn Recommendations

I am very proud of the services I provide to clients. In fact, I see a business relationships as much more personal and built in real partnership. As my contact hours will show, my relationships are not bound by the traditional M-F 9-5 windows agencies normally keep.

“Matt is a true expert in SEO and UX. His analysis provided sound and logical recommendations for our SEO efforts that were overlooked by many other SEO consultants. Not only does he have the expertise - he also is able to communicate the findings and priorities accordingly to all stakeholders: from IT teams to executive sponsors. Matt is a pleasure to work with as well a key strategist for search engine optimization.”

“Matt's SEO expertise proved invaluable at a time when our company was seeking to maximize its visibility and minimize its expenses. With Matt's help, we were able to cut our marketing spend to a fraction of the company's prior spend - and yet still realize much greater results. Shortly after Matt "optimized" our website, the company cut all marketing spending.

It is still hard for me to believe, but over a year later the site still ranked among Google's top results across the most relevant keywords. Matt is hard working and can push forward with little direction required. If one needs SEO or digital marketing help, they would be wise to contact Matt.”

Analyzing a situation and knowing where and how to strike is at the core of what Matt does best. He has amassed a significant set of skills in the SEO environment and has demonstrated on multiple occasions his value in being able to either jumpstart an existing product or accelerate the growth of a company’s digital presence from initiation. In the short time I worked with Matt, he exceeded expectations numerous times with a wide variety of B2B and B2C clients. I would enjoy the opportunity of working again with Matt.

“Matt provided us with a high level of SEO expertise, particularly on the technical side as it related to how our e-commerce website was set up. This enabled us to implement important on-site SEO changes without negatively impacting the functionality and usability of our site.

In order to understand what changes we needed to make, and how best to apply them, Matt always took the time to explain in detail what was necessary, even down to going through the source code to identify exactly what needed to be modified.

Matt has a an extensive knowledge of SEO -- both onsite and offsite -- and was able to keep us up-to-date with the latest changes in Google's algorithm so that we could make adjustments to our SEO strategy as needed.”

"By his very nature, Matt is one of the most analytical people I know, but where he really stands out is in his ability to get to the bottom of any problematic situation and apply his in-depth knowledge and analytical skills to produce a strategic, actionable solution that wows clients and ultimately produces the results they are looking for.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Matt for going on two years, and during that time, I can’t count the number of times I’ve been blown away by the strategic, incredibly well-thought out analysis and recommendations he has produced. While he is incredibly strong in terms of identifying potential problems that others would not likely catch, he further differentiates himself by making it his personal mission to come up with solid solutions for clients and for the greater good of any team or organization he is a part of. I frequently find myself conferring with Matt because I both really appreciate his unique perspective and completely trust his already extensive knowledge, but I also know he will always do a deeper dive into whatever the topic to ensure that he provides sound and in-depth recommendations and advice.

Matt is the strongest and most technical expert for absolutely everything SEO and online marketing that I know. He is a tremendous asset to any team or project he’s involved in, and someone you always hope to have on your team and in your corner. One of the best things for me about coming to work each day is getting to collaborate and work with incredible minds like his. He’s just one of those rare people in life where knowing him makes you feel inspired to learn more and become better and at whatever you do."
