Old Friends New Company

Written by / Posted in pubcon poker tournament / 11 Comments

One of the first people I ever met involving the internet business, in fact I think it was the second one, was Erik Ricasa. In fact I met him when he was doing SEO and building sites, before I even had my first email address. It possibly could have been 1996 or so? 1997? Eric has done every angle of the only world from SEO, to site design, and analytics to running the business end of a large company doing all of it.

Another old friend is one of the few people who can rival me as the networking royalty of the internet world. Becky Ryan knows everybody in the online business world.When I first was creating thinktank, she spent literally 2 hours on the phone with me giving me advice on the social landscape of the SEO, SEM, world.

I am excited that they have joined forces along with some other very bright people to form LiBeck Integrated Marketing.

    It’s amazing how important SEO has gotten over the years. In order for a website to succeed online these days, it must be SEO optimized in order to get attention from an average internet user

    SEO is a fascinating trade. I’ve been doing editing work for a company website, and I have to leave certain strange phrases intact to not mess up the search results.

    I don’t want to imagine what great things these two will do in the future especially in the field of internet marketing, SEO and SEM. What is more awesome is you are under their tutelage.
