I tend to dislike writing in the third person, so I’ll try to keep this a bit on the informal side.

Having been a successful social internet marketer helping businesses get affiliate programs and direct sales companies off the ground since the early days of America Online (AOL), I have a unique set of skills that allows me the flexibility and outside-the-box mentality to help people and businesses gain the maximum amount of results from the time and money they invest in the social media channel and search engine optimization.
Over the last few years, I’ve been deep into blending social media and SEO to maximize search results. Knowing the value of social media, the increasing influence those social signals have from a keyword and content perspective on search engines, I enjoy the challenge of analyzing where companies are to help them get where they want to be. Most recently, I’ve helped Smash Hit Displays, another trade show display company get their website out from under a manual Google penalty for unnatural linking due to hiring several inept SEO companies who implemented tactics that got them fired and the website penalized.
Since 1998, I’ve built a unique blend of sales, biz development, project management, SEO, reputation management and social media marketing skills. Focused on creating SEO best practices strategies and social media marketing action plans that fulfill a company’s unique brand, image and voice, as well as meeting/exceeding the business goals and objectives.
Here are some testimonials of my work:
“Timothy has been a great help with several social media campaigns I have done in the past. He’s always thinking outside of the box and is brilliant at rallying for support. One of his great talents is connecting the right people together to make amazing things happen. He’s a wonderful networker but also a wonderful friend to his online army. I feel very lucky to have him in my circle.” October 25, 2011 Jenni Hogan, Traffic Anchor, KIRO TV
To Whom it May Concern:
I’m writing a letter of recommendation for anyone thinking of using the social media advertising services of Timothy Carter.
I’ve worked in local news as on-air talent for the past ten years and never has it been more important to connect with viewers than now. I recently entered a new tv market in New Orleans and needed to raise my profile via social media. I used Mr. Carter’s services to up my Twitter followers and he did that in thirty days. Not only did Timothy raise my numbers, but he also targeted those whom share the same interests.
I would suggest to anyone looking for help with Twitter followers, whether it be to find clients or contacts to consider using Mr. Carter’s services. I’m willing to speak who has any questions on this matter. Feel free to send me a tweet at @BSalmond4 or an email at BSalmond @ hotmail.com

This blog is an outlet for me to write about all things to do with SEO, Social Media and Online Marketing which includes Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, Facebook, Youtube or whatever I think about or what catches my interest in the digital marketing world, from search engine optimization, to social media marketing ideas. I will also do interviews with some of the people within the search and social marketing industry I respect the most.
I also hope and intend that this site shows off how to use the Internet to help individuals, entrepreneurs and businesses to market themselves socially through engaging other people and companies in conversations that build trust, that build relationships and that develop into brand advocates and ultimately friends. Relationship marketing via social media will continue to grow and influence the way that people and businesses do business.
