International Online Marketing and Business Consultant
I simply help businesses solve their digital problems they don't have time to address. Marketing, web technology, asset research/investigations and a host of other associated services. I use a lot of Google applications because they are fast, reliable, super easy to deploy and extremely efficient in online business operations, especially for small businesses.
Welcome - A Little About Me:
I started my 1st Internet business in 1998 selling eBooks online at the age of 20. Things were just starting back then with online business and only about 180 million people were actually online. I had to create my own websites from scratch using HTML code and editors.
I also has a 10-year career in law enforcement and investigations. I am trained in cyber security, web technology and basic OSINT.
The biggest business I started was an Internet-based real estate investment company in Cleveland, Ohio back in 2005 to capitalize on the rapidly rising distress real estate market, which was promoted through Google Ads, SEO and direct mail. Through my real estate websites and marketing, I purchased and sold over 300 houses and apartments.
I have a lot of experience in OSINT research (Open Source Intelligence) and cyber inspections for individuals and small companies that need intelligence on real estate assets, owners, corporations and web site weaknesses.
Corporate, Business and Digital Assets
I have experience and understanding of corporate entities, documents and filings in the State of Ohio through the numerous transactions I have taken part in. I often need to investigate corporations, owners and assets using OSINT on the web, including domains, IP addresses, websites, cyber security, vulnerability assessments and business impact analysis in the form of qualitative reports.
I can search public databases and find pieces to a larger puzzle and connect dots to give a clear picture of an event, circumstance or revelation about most common intents, such as; Background investigations on people, corporations, events, incidents, digital assets, court records, property records and anything else that can be searched using public databases, which is about 80% of anything. This skill can really give a small business an edge in marketing and competition.
Experience in Business & Marketing:
Through-out the businesses that I have founded and grew, I have developed valuable skills that are very relevant today. These skills are:
Digital marketing through Content or Native ads
General PPC campaign management and the big 3 marketing interfaces (Google, Facebook and Bing)
Real estate underwriting and investing. I formerly founded and ran an investment business as a principal and bought and sold over 300 properties in the grater Cleveland area.
Rapid lead generation using paid ads on Facebook or Google.
Facebook account resolution; If you are a marketer and have had your ad account or business manager disabled, I have a lot of experience in getting them reactivated, mostly with my own accounts.
OSINT (Open source intelligence) cyber research; this is a skill and takes time to develop, anyone can do it but do you have the time and know where to look? I do! Let me gather your intelligence so that you have leverage in making strategic business or personal decisions.
Website Administration and Hosting Skills:
Through owning my own businesses in the past 15 years, I have developed skills in creating, deploying and easily managing multiple websites and databases for marketing campaigns (or any purpose) very fast.
Today's technology allows ANYONE to easily deploy a website with minimal tech skills, but you do need to know how to use the TOOLS, and that is where many beginning entrepreneurs stumble or get bottle-necked. Technology is happening so fast now, it can be a frustrating experience if you do not have a strong background in tech, let alone having to learn a new platform and its tools.
I was lucky, I started creating my own websites in 1998 and grew from there.

I thing that Google Sites are one of the best kept secrets.
Website sales funnels - lead generation: Setting these up can be time consuming. But they work and the build your email list, and EMAIL LISTS are and always will WORK for business if you are relevant to the audience, and offer quality and value. Email lists are better than paid ads, and if you have a quality product or service you will have a loyal following that you can sell to over and over. Imagine if you had every email of all your previous customers and automatically sent them follows ups ever week, do you think they would be a lifelong customer? Memory and good customer service is everything today, there are so many other ads and competitors, your new customer can easily forget all about you.
