Background

Summary

Dan Lawrence is an experienced digital marketer, one of the first generation of Search Engine Optimisation specialists now evolved into a holistic Inbound Marketing consultant.

I started as an account executive, then an account manager, becoming new business development manager for a start up web design agency soon after graduating in 1996. This included many various projects to develop new business but was most enthusiastic for the opportunities presented by Search Engine Optimisation leading me to launch UK's first (i think) 'pure-play' online store. Selling technology products direct to consumers/end users as a test ground for investigating and researching the wonderful world of Search Engine Optimisation (S.E.O).

Achieved #1 SERPS on Google for all highly competitive KeyWords targeted such as 'ipod accessories', 'hard drives', 'wifi', 'data storage', etc. Which in conjunction with competitive pricing of products sold, resulted in multiple daily orders driven by SEO only (no other marketing channels exploited apart from word of mouth/recommendation).

Since then and in parallel with my own projects i have helped companies align their organic digital assets with leading search engine criteria to help achieve high search engine rankings and the expected targeted traffic, all according to best practice guidelines (white hat).

Have since successfully investigated new channels such as Amazon Seller accounts. Shop21 achieved certificate/award over 2010 festive selling season for making the top 25% of all UK Amazon sellers in terms of Sales and Customer Satisfaction (averaging 100% positive feedback)

Due to existing experience, wanting to expand experience & missing the social aspect of agency life (& Shop21 being automated) was recruited by new specialist, results driven, digital marketing agency Mangostorm where i enjoyed 3 successful years as Head Of SEO & Inbound Marketing.

Now i focus exclusively on my own book of clients and projects.
