I am Marco, and this is my professional blog. I started doing SEO and digital marketing in 2008, for fun.
Since then, I never stopped 💪
In the last 10 years I’ve been working as a strategic technical SEO & PPC consultant, acted at senior management and director level within 2 highly-valued boutique SEO agencies between Italy and Switzerland and led growth marketing at a fast-growing, US-based SaaS company.
I’ve been lucky enough to gain invaluable experience as a digital marketing strategist, team leader and analyst.
I’ve built cross-functional digital marketing teams and personally consulted on SEO & PPC a number of top brands operating in +20 different industries, including e-commerce, retail, B2B, SaaS, banking, financial services, insurance, publishing, sports, cosmetics, real estate, food & beverage and many more.
Recently, I volunteered for diverse non-profit organizations and took up mentoring roles in the fields of management, entrepreneurship & online marketing.
