SEO and Digital Marketing entrepreneur / consultant who started SEJ, consults on SEO and Google, can help with SEO questions, SEO consulting, blogging and content marketing.
Building social media strategies for clients is something I do very well
I have practiced SEO and have been a thought leader in the industry for 15 years.
I created Search Engine Journal, a six figure blog, and help run a couple of publishing networks.
Loren is a thought leader and in the industry. His work ethic and commitment to integrity make him a pleasure to work with - I give him my highest recommendation.
Loren is a true community leader and industry veteran that acts with compassion and determination; an entrepreneur who continues to deliver.
He set out to curate the early search engine studies, tests, and findings with Search Engine Journal and he continues to lead the industry by delivering creative strategies and foundational principles to clients and peers at industry conferences.
If you need a friend and a strategic partner, Loren is your man.
Loren Baker has been one of the big names in search and SEO for as long as I've been covering the industry. He comes highly recommended by most of his peers.
Loren has long been one of the search industry's premier journalists and practitioners. I've always been a fan of his editorial work and have heard good things about his consultation practice as well.
I have had the pleasure of learning about marketing tactical strategy and execution from Loren for years. Since when I first worked with him in the mid-2000's, Loren has been a recognized community educator and evangelist for the digital marketing space. He brings experience, non-mainstream ideas, and passion to every meeting, and will be a tremendous asset to any company that is lucky enough to get him. I highly endorse Loren as an integrated digital marketing expert and leader.
I've known Loren for many years now, and he gave me one of my first opportunities to blog via Search Engine Journal. He's incredibly personable, intelligent, and knowledgeable. He's written many valuable and insightful pieces for SEJ.
In an industry like Internet Marketing which is characterized by cutt-throat competition,"nice" is rarely a quality you will encounter, yet it makes all the difference in a high stakes working relationship. Loren was one of the nicest, friendliest Internet marketers I've had the privilege of working with, in addition to being, most importantly, one of the best. I hired Loren to help promote Salesforce.com's Wordpress to Lead plugin, where we implemented an integrated strategy of online PR, viral marketing, and guest blogging. It was a really small, skunkworks freemium app launch, that few people in the company knew about, and most definitely not one of the most notable Salesforce.com products released that year. The end result? Through the online buzz Loren and his team created, Tim O'Reilly got wind of it and plugged the project in front of 10,000+ Web 2.0 Expo attendees. That's called over-delivering.
Loren has been a longtime industry friend, who I have recently had the pleasure to work with on some projects. I have spent years reading things he has written, but only recently had the opportunity to hear him speak to clients, prospective clients, employees and prospective employees. He has such a unique approach to the industry and to his overall management style, that as a business owner myself, I try to absorb and emulate. Loren's greatest attribute is his sincere desire to understand everything being said in a conversation and to selflessly discover opportunities for everyone involved.
To put it simply, Loren is one of the only people that I've ever entrusted to help me guide my employer, a publicly-traded corporation, in matters relating to both enterprise search marketing and enterprise social media.
And he has rewarded me with one success after another as well as a string of executives that have come away impressed by his approach to doing business.
He has done a tremendous job of overseeing the implementation of multi-faceted content marketing and SEO link building campaign, both from a business development perspective as well as from an ideation and stakeholder advocacy standpoint. Therefore, I'd happily recommend him and his agency, Blue Glass Interactive, to any and all of my colleagues that are serious about taking their approach to search, social, and digital content to the next level.
I've had the honor to know and collaborate with Loren several times since the summer of 2009 and have had the privilege to seek his professional advise and guidance on several occasions as well. Throughout that time his ability to understand the issues involved, and to provide a clear vision for achieving exceptional goals have been a priceless asset with each new undertaking.
His professional mentorship has consistently been spot-on across the board. His ability to help me personally achieve my own personal brand goals has time and again proven key to my path and success.
Our company has relied upon some of the recommendations Loren has provided for our newer search marketing campaigns. After a few months of implementing his advice we are now seeing the return on our investments and many people here are pleased.
