Thanks for stopping by.
You’ve found the personal site of Capt. Charlie Ellis of Miami, FL.
To be completely honest, there is no title for what I do. The truth is, I wound up in this position by accident. Out of curiosity, ingenuity, and ultimately necessity. Like so many of the search marketing evangelists who influenced me, I stumbled into digital marketing.
For a long time I considered myself an SEO, but times have changed. As the internet marketing industry grew up, so did I. And look at us now. Are we inbound marketers? Native advertisers? Optimizers? Writers? I’m not really sure, but I do know that it takes tremendous experience in SEO, PPC, CRO, Web Analytics, Email Marketing, Copywriting, Graphic Design, UX Engineering, and Content Marketing to get anywhere these days. Fortunately, that’s what i’m good at.
So here I am, eight years later. Still going strong, Still compelled to conquer Google. Still excited to see what comes next. It’s been such a privilege to work with dozens of amazing companies from all over the world – I couldn’t imagine life any other way.
I practice ROI driven search marketing, which means setting goals, meeting benchmarks, and developing the comprehensive effectiveness of a client’s web presence are at the forefront of every marketing campaign I manage.
