Web Development & Design

My strengths are in HTML with CSS, mobile responsive design, web graphics, interface design and search engine marketing. I know my way around PHP, Java Script, JQuery, MySQL, CGI scripts, tracking codes, cookies and can work with a backend server. I have maintained and installed SQL databases for such web CMS systems as the always handy WordPress, Joomla, and Magento. I have registered and maintained many domain names, some as old as 15 years. I have handled all tasks of a Webmaster including company email systems and file transfer sites.

With these skills I have created and developed multiple websites over the years, the largest being www.barska.com. I created this site from scratch in 2004 for the brand Barska®. As the brand and product selection grew, I took the site from flash, to static HTML, to dynamic content management system (CMS), to ecommerce platform. As the company direction grew to develop business in new markets, I created new brand and ecommerce websites such as; www.shopbarska.com, www.Ar15Scopes.com, www.LoadedGear.com, http://www.SureSafes.com, www.Ausvio.com, www.BarskaAudio.com and many more. I created a web department within the company and grew it to 5 dedicated internal staff members. I led UI frontend developers, backend developers, web graphic designers, SEO/ SEM, social media staff and customer service.

Web Marketing, Search Engine Optimization & Analytics

I have extensive experience with all major online advertisement and analytics platforms. I have used these platforms for ecommerce and brand advertising. To maintain healthy traffic I have also utilized advanced SEO and social media marketing techniques. I have always stuck to “White Hat SEO” with the belief that “Content Is King” to grow traffic. Google, the 800-pound gorilla on the web has been a fixture in my web and ecommerce career. From Humming Bird to Panda I have implemented best practices to grow traffic organically and offer compelling content for visitors. I have created extensive Google Adwords campaigns utilizing all features possible. I have seen the system grow and change over the year and have kept up to date with the latest ads and targeting methods. I have used Googles Merchant Center product data feeds to create PLA (Product Listing Ads) and retarget customer audiences with dynamic retargeting ads to greatly increase conversion rate. Google Adwords, Bing & Yahoo network, and Facebook ads are ad platforms that I have used daily for years. I have implemented ads on secondary networks such as comparison-shopping sites like; Price Grabber, Nextag, Shopzilla, Connexity, Adroll and other category specific display networks.

I have also grown internal email lists & have setup email blast programs on how to contact customers for sales, promotions and brand news. I have experience with other methods of monetization for websites such as Google Adsense and various affiliate networks. All of this online activity has been tracked for years with Google Analytics. I have created, implemented and maintained multi-property Analytic accounts that track website usage and ecommerce habits of thousands of visitors per day. In addition to Google Analytics, I have used Google Webmaster Tools, Stat Counter and SEMRush to optimize website traffic and keyword ranking.
