Jon Tucker's Experience
January 2005 – Present (8 years 5 months) Greater San Diego Area
At Compete Marketing Group, we help clients increase their search engine rankings to drive website traffic and grow revenue.
Our business clients appreciate our ability to develop comprehensive strategies that produce results. In addition, we take the time to ensure that all of our clients fully understand all elements of the strategy and how to gauge performance - this is rare in the online marketing / SEO industry.
Our marketing agency clients appreciate our ability to conduct industry-leading link building campaigns. In short, we acquire links for clients that are on legitimate (i.e. real websites with real human readers) and high authority websites (i.e. SEOmoz Domain Authority of 75+) within high quality content (i.e. content clients are happy to have their name on).

I managed search engine optimization efforts for a range of Fortune 500 clients operating in diverse industries, including wireless technology, telecommunications, national restaurant franchising, and more.
Overview of Responsibilities
(Campaign Strategy and Management)
After conducting a thorough review and recommendation process regarding the search engine effectiveness of a client's sometimes extremely large and complex website, I managed the research process of uncovering how their market is searching for products and services online. From there, I would architect a website strategy to ensure that prospective customers reach their website to become buyers.

Through the Lavin Fellowship Program, I was mentored by leaders of large Fortune 500 companies.
