I always wonder how we can unleash the power between social and search - Barry has been instrumental in defining our strategies and best practices the moment he walks in IPC. We are able to come up with many clever but yet systemetic improvements in our audience development strategy with real measureable results. Barry is approachable, funny, knowledgeable and is also constantly pushing himself to be at the cutting-edge of digital. I would not hesitate to work with him again and as a matter of fact, he's be one of the first person I'd call for my own ventures.
From day one Barry began to make a difference to the business with both quick-to-execute advice as well as longer term strategic proposals. His ability to prioritise and provide his expertise on what will make the biggest difference in relation to effort has meant great improvements in the site's SEO and organic traffic quickly. Aside from this he's great guy to work with.
Barry worked for me as SEO Executive across several major industry job boards in highly competitive sectors. He was relentless in striving to get the best value for us, he got fantastic results via high quality link building, and developed a very good understanding of how to use his skills and experience to the benefit of rankings and traffic. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Barry in the future.
Barry knows his stuff. He understands and gets SEO - not only from a technical and implementation perspective but also how it will impact on results. All actions are checked back to objectives and translated using analytics (GA, Omniture etc). He made an immediate impact on the sites he was working on and clearly identified future areas for improvement. A straight talker, he is a person you can trust to get the job done and I have no hesitation in recommending him
Asides from the confusion over our names when we sat beside each other, Barry is one of the most knowledgeable and straight-talking SEO experts I have had the pleasure to work with over the years. Recruiting Barry M would be a credit to any forward-thinking digital business.
