About

Allow me to introduce myself, and give you a background into who I am and what I do. ross-stevens

At the start

In 2001 I was introduced to a couple of guys starting an SEO company, called Netrank. This was where my interest in computers turned into a fascination with websites, how they work, and how they can be optimised to appear higher in search engines. This is where my venture as a professional search-engine optimiser started.

During my time at University, I did SEO for Netrank in a part-time capacity and for my year work placement. After I grabbed my degree with both hands, I started working at a company called Chapter Zero.

After almost 4 years of refining my profession and building a small SEO team, Chapter Zero had closed its doors. This is when I started working for The Organic Agency.

Somewhere in-between

I joined The Organic Agency as a one-man SEO team, alongside the directors and other developers. I stayed there for almost 5 years, parting ways at a point when the digital marketing team was a lot bigger and the company was growing at break-neck speed.

Towards the present

I have been self-employed since 2013, undertaking digital marketing in Devon for some of the biggest clients in their respective industries. I also have regular clients based in the North, London and even the US. If you’re interested in me doing your digital marketing and want to know the kind of clients I work for, get in touch.

Where I’m currently at

My expertise is in analysing websites, understanding their weaknesses and improving them so they are at their full potential for ranking in search engines. I also love to number-crunch PPC campaigns and undertake content marketing for those who wish to fully realise what their website can achieve. I also offer consultancy to clients who want to get the most out of their social media channels.

On the side

I undertake small website development projects and implement usability strategies. This felt like a natural progression for me in the last few years. If there’s anything you want doing that I can’t, I’ll put you in touch with someone who can.

When I’m not working

I spend time developing and providing support for a popular blogging system called JaggyBlog. Okay, that still kind of counts as work.

Apart from that, I enjoy being a part of the Exeter City Run Club, drinking copious amounts of tea and taking long walks in National Trust areas.
