About Me

Anthony has over 14 years of search marketing experience developing highly successful organic & paid search campaigns.

For the past 4 years, his primary focus has been architecting integrated multi-channel acquisition and growth strategies for consumer, SMB and enterprise businesses.

Marketing as a discipline has experienced remarkable change in the last few years. Successful marketers, for example, understand the importance of how APIs responsible for delivering customer and traffic data for attribution tracking and analytics insight is only part of the story.

Even more important is understanding the integration and interpretation of the growing volume and variety of data is key for a business to remain competitive. Businesses of all sizes must adapt to an unprecedented inflow of transactional, social, behavioral, consumer and identity data.

Navigating this complex and competitive environment requires brands to optimize ROI by identifying high-value marketing activities that reach qualified, targeted customers. The challenge that brands now face is adherence to a disciplined, data-driven approach that promotes decision making in near real-time.

Establishing KPIs and assessing channel performance, progressive targeting, A/B testing and data integration from the multitude of business applications will increase the likelihood that correct conclusions are drawn from analytics insights.
