The Tent: Day to day routine at Blue Tent.
Most days start with a cup of green tea followed by an email session of varying lengths. Often some team discussion about what has changed overnight in the world of Search Engine Marketing, then knocking out some client tasks or calls gets me to a lunch break. A large chunk of my day is spent in Google Analytics, Google Webmaster Tools, Optimizely, CrazyEgg, Google+ or the Google Keyword Planner. The data out of those tools helps inform the changes I make daily on client sites. On a good day, I’ve got time for professional development of some sort, exploring one of the many corners of SEM.
The Tent: Favorite aspect of your role
Being able to work across the wide range of disciplines SEM / SEO encompasses, keeping up with a dynamic, quickly evolving industry and working with people much smarter than myself all keep things interesting.
The Tent: One vice.
Back to back snooze sessions as my phone’s alarm tries desperately to get me to hit the “dismiss” button
The Tent: Favorite libation.
A bright IPA
The Tent: How do you use flex time?
- Snowboarding in the morning with the confidence that deep powder brings
- Taking care of life’s “other” responsibilities
- Getting out of town a bit early on the weekend
The Tent: If you could work remotely from anywhere, where would it be?
Split my time between somewhere in Western Canada and somewhere that wearing linen shirts and no shoes is the norm.
The Tent: Favorite way to unwind.
Playing some guitar, putting on a record, cooking, or taking a bike ride
