I worked at Raleigh SEO Company full-time (More than a year)
Flexible work schedule, ability to work from home one day a week, matching 401K, lots of energy and optimizing in the company, great leadership from an industry veteran SEO expert (Brendan Monahan), intense hands on experience with all levels of client acquisition and retention, friendly and non-combative work environment.
We focused almost all of our efforts on search engine optimization and getting our clients ranking better on Google, Yahoo and Bing, so the skills you learn here are very specialized. We did get to do other aspects of online marketing, such as Facebook ads, PPC and conversion rate optimization (CRO), but we didn't spend nearly as much of our focus on those compared to the SEO work we did.
Advice to Management
I really enjoyed working here and learned so much about digital marketing, but if I could offer one piece of advice to management, it would be to continue to expand beyond just search engine marketing and also offer clients web design and heat map tracking services.
