There is no “I” in team but there is an “Am” in Sam and Team
We couldn’t be more excited about the newest addition to the Post + Proper team. We are building our team of highly skilled, incredibly talented strong women and we couldn’t be prouder. Meet Samantha, our new SEO Marketing Specialist. Sam’s knowledge in this space is exactly what our clients need and her attention to detail has us giddy!
We love a good Q & A, so without further adieu, meet Sam….
P+P : How did you get to be a an SEO guru?
Sam: I was hired as an intern at a web design company in Chicago. Because I knew how to read & write code, I was put on the SEO team to help with overflow. That ended up spiraling into where I’m at now, and I will be forever thankful to those individuals for that experience!
P+P: Well, we couldn’t be more appreciative too! That road lead you to us! Hooray.
P+P: What SEO philosophy to you subscribe to? What specifically makes you successful in this space?
Sam: SEO has now become part of an overall digital marketing strategy. Without one element, you cannot have another. Search Engine Optimization should encompass many aspects – not just on page optimization and a blurb of content. I believe in structured plans of action to help achieve goals – but I’m not going to sugar-coat the details, or imply that “the impossible” can be achieved. Nothing happens overnight – especially in the world of SEO. I make sure our clients understand how the process works, what to expect, and if possible – a loose timeline based on similar projects. Three things I convey to my clients: There are few to none quick fixes when it comes to Search Engine Optimization, SEO needs to be an ongoing effort, and SEO is the foundation for a great online marketing strategy – but shouldn’t be the only strategy.
I feel that I’m successful in this space because I treat every business like it is my own. I make it a point to learn something new every day. I have a passion for watching business thrive as a direct reflection of the work I have done. I also enjoy troubleshooting, and then watching the business move onward and upward after they’ve hit a marketing plateau. I’m also deeply involved in analysis, analytics and metrics, which helps break everything down to a science!
P+P: We started this company because we wanted to treat our clients businesses like they were our own. Look, our philosophies are a perfect fit. Lucky clients!
P+P: What do you do in your free time when you aren’t killing it for our clients?
Sam: Horses, horses, and more horses! I have a retired Quarter Horse and a 13yr old Haflinger that I’ll be showing this year!
P+P: Looks like we are going to need some riding lessons! We think it is incredible to have such a unique passion.
P+P: If you could hang out with any celebrity who would it be and where would you go?
Sam: Robert Downey Junior – and we’d go wherever they keep the Iron Man suits and the Audi R8. After that, he’s obsolete 🙂
P+P: As fellow Robert Downey fans (albeit more 1989 “Chances are” Robert Downey) we still want to know if we can come?
