Ash Jorgensen

"Mark was my first manager who truly taught me about SEO. His approach to training and mentoring was around approaching SEO as a marketing channel for customers rather than being search engine centric. As time has progressed in the industry, this approach and mindset have become much more significant. Mark would always be willing to answer my questions and give me exposure which saw me learn rapidly. Nearly 4 years after working with Mark, I still apply this same thinking with clients and businesses I work for."

"Mark's insights on SEO is backed with years of experience in growing and running successful businesses with the channel. He knows the reality of wielding SEO to nurture your website and grow your business. Speaking with Mark for an hour had me reflecting on his words, for days afterwards. He has a simplified way of offering insights that leaves you considering his wisdom. Mark has helped me to make the vision of my business crystal clear, and has influenced me to focus in on my 'why' - all from one conversation. I'm acutely interested in voices within the SEO industry. Mark's voice is an important one that I believe will benefit everyone (SEOs & other professionals) who work on an acquisition-based website."

The world of SEO is full of misinformation and Mark has a genuine desire to help businesses help themselves by arming them with the knowledge they need to implement a good solid SEO practice which ultimately results in sustainable realistic results.

"Mark’s SEO talk at WixCon was a highlight for me. Honestly, the SEO talks I’ve watched in the past have either overwhelmed me with details or left me feeling kind of slimy from a used-car-salesmen-esque pushy based approach. Mark's descriptions and visuals were clear, easy to understand, and sometimes even funny. I appreciated his enthusiastic organic, authentic, practical approach - no dirty quick tips here! After Mark’s speech I was left with more confidence, curiosity, and an understanding that I have much more to learn. Mark helped me rethink my relationship to SEO and made it not as scary - I will definitely reach out to him for future questions."

"Mark’s nuanced and transparent approach to SEO strategy is a breathe of fresh air. I am tired of reading recycled SEO advice articles providing “tips” and “tricks” on how to “beat the system” that ultimately only muddy and confuse the matter. Mark provides an invaluable, real-world, outside the box, practical and proven approach to SEO Management. A generous, intelligent and passionate speaker, listening to Mark discuss best SEO practices at WixCon clarified and will forever change how I will implement SEO strategy for my clients on the Wix platform - on any platform!"

"I heartily recommend Mark for any project that involves SEO. Mark is a top SEO professional. His SEO knowledge and solutions are enlightening, informative, and creative at the same time. Mark is easy to understand so people that do not have any SEO background learn the basics as well as the specifics. His recommendations and examples are extremely insightful, practical, and useful. I’m an experienced web designer that always optimizes the SEO on my client’s websites. However, when I attended Mark’s workshop, I not only learned a lot of new information, but it also encouraged me to think about SEO in a different way than I used to do before. This will help me to further improve the SEO of my client’s sites. Mark also provided useful tools and downloadable resources which come in very handy."

After extensive planning and research, you can never plan for every aspect of a project this size which is where Mark really shined. We reached out and from day 1 he was helpful and prompt. Anytime before, during, and after the launch he was always there answering questions and guiding us in the right direction. It's been several months now and not only does his help still remain valued it's cool to see the project succeed. Many thanks and #cheers, sir!"

"There has never been a more a crucial time for a business to maximize its online presence in the savviest, most effective way possible. There are so many companies with great products and services, but if your company is buried in search results to the point that consumers can't find you online, you essentially don't exist. I went to one of Marks SEO (for beginners) training, step by step how to solve that problem through Search Engine Optimization. I've booked myself on the next course Mark is running. Well worth for level beginners to expert."
