ABOUT ME

My name is Tanner and I’m a web marketer by trade. I’m always striving to learn and provide the best work I can.

I got my real start in the SEO world by landing a job at Boostability. The company was growing at a very fast pace and everyone on the fulfillment team was kept quite busy. As time went on, and my knowledge of SEO continued to expand, I realized the huge opportunity that was being missed by the company by only focusing on off-site SEO.

This led me to explore the option of working as an in-house SEO. It wasn’t too long until I was offered a position at Sportsman’s Warehouse to handle SEO for (then) 32 store locations across the country and an ecommerce store that was still in its infancy. When I got there, I thought I knew a lot about web marketing. That couldn’t have been further from the truth.

I spent a lot of time learning about all of the cogs in marketing and how they all affect sales online and in store. Then I had an idea for some software that would web marketers all over the place (I’m still working on that project in my spare time). I told a few friends about the idea, including Dave Bascom, who founded SEO.com. He seemed to like the idea, but apparently would have rather seen me work for him than develop the software.

So, he offered me a job instead. I began working for Dave Bascom and Owen Fuller at Fit Marketing. Working at Fit was an amazing experience. The majority of what I know about inbound marketing I learned from my time there.

I was offered a higher paying position at Utah SEO Pros early in 2014. I took the job, and it’s been another great learning experience.

I’m currently working for myself. It’s been another adventure and we’ll see where it all takes me.

In the end, I just love what I do and I’m grateful I can make a living out of it. I’m currently taking on new clients, and I’d love to show you what I’m capable of. If you are in the Salt Lake area and want to meet up for Lunch, just let me know. You can reach me by email, follow me on Twitter, connect with me on LinkedIn, or friend me on Facebook.
