An experienced digital marketing professional, Louise helped businesses build traffic to their websites starting in 2001, the very infancy of the search engine marketing world. She remembers the days when people referred to the industry simply as “keyword marketing” – days when a few keywords in your website metatags could get you organic rankings on Yahoo and Google.
Fast track 15 years and Louise’s expertise now spans a variety of digital advertising vehicles whether in a search or display environment – understanding the intricacies of the platforms, how they can be integrated, and how to interpret the volumes of data. This is what she considers fun! To be fair, she also likes running, yoga and hanging out with family and friends.
