Award Winning SEM & Internet Marketing Consultant
Previously and until recently unknown by SEO colleagues – I used to sing and play in bands – my SEO journey is documented here and my vocal journey is documented here, but the short story is I ended up ‘doing digital’.
Not sure about whether I had decided upon the right career path, turns out it was probably the best decision I have made and I am proud to have achieved many things including:
- Winning the European Search Personality of the Year Award
- Becoming the only independent consultant / freelancer shortlisted for Best PPC Campaign at the UK Search awards
- Am currently or have been a judge for UK, EU, USA and Canadian Search awards
- Won the AimClear ‘Pink Sheep Cloneable marketeer’ Award
- Am a member of the prestigious invite only SEOKtoberfest Alumni
- Now Run a Successful Youtube Channel with over 15,000 subscribers and have been invited to the Youtube creative space in London
- Voted one of the Top 50 Women in Search
- Have been honoured by my university as an Alumni of note in their Roll of Honour
Starting out as an Interactive Media and interface designer/project manager for blue chip companies, I moved into SEO & Affiliate marketing when becoming interested in ‘this new Google thing’ in 1999 and subsequently Adwords/PPC in 2004.
I have worked with many startups taking them from zero to online hero and in many cases helped establish the team with full training to move the process in house – companies include Just Eat, Hassle.com, Autobutler DK and music brands such as Roland UK
Having worked in the industry for over 20 years, I consider myself to be a well rounded SEM Strategist and trainer with a unique set of creative marketing and analytical skills with a proven track record for thinking differently and significantly improving ROII working both with direct clients and as a white label outsource for agencies
Highly visible and active within the SEM community, and previous editor and blogger for www.StateofDigital.com, I have been the PPC Trainer at Biddable World, SES London and Brighton SEO.
As a keen amateur photographer, I can also be seen snapping at various conferences and events and tagging search stars on Facebook 🙂
But wait… there’s more!
Whilst working in Copenhagen as the Paid Search Consultant for startup Autobutler (shortlisted for a UK Search Award), as a keen singer I was persuaded to join the 3 year teacher course at the Complete vocal institute, I took a short course, was invited onto the postgraduate and qualified as a professional vocal coach helping singers and speakers alike to find their voices, get over their stage fright and ensure that they never get hoarse, or miss a gig again!
I have been invited to teach voice and vocal effects at the European Vocal Camp for four years consecutively, and this year will be also teaching internet marketing for musicians.
At the European Search Awards in Beriln – we crossed the streams and I sang for the industry with the Grand Piano as the entertainment. I have since performed at the UK Search Awards and at the US Search Awards, and helped some SEO professionals get their voices back for upcoming speaking gigs at events
So don’t get confused about why there are two Jackie Holes – there is only one 🙂
