Professional Bio

Hi Inbound!

I'm the founder of Elite Strategies, a nifty SEO company in Delray Beach, FL.  We represent some huge brands nationally and hustle hard 7 days a week.  We have a dozen team members that churn out some really solid work.

I have had the same affiliate marketing campaign alive and profitable for over 3 years.

I also run a gamut of personal drop shipping eCommerce websites.

Follow the money.

Where I Write

I mainly write for our blog, the Elite Strategies Blog but I have recently been branching out to Moz and some others. Also posting on my personal blog a lot lately and even posting here on Inbound as well.

I really believe in owning my own data, and while I do see the benefit of guest blogging the pros of owning my own data outweigh the cons. This carries over into everything I do from blogging, analytics, servers, backups, etc.

Favorite Blogs

I have no favorite blogs, only favorite posts.

    @emilylynch26 I also grew up coding and now probably classify more as a "technical marketer" - don't you think your BG is helpful in the digital age? don't you feel as though you have an edge?

  5. Patrick Coombe added a comment on Ask Inbound: Thoughts/experiences with SEO Powersuite?
    Can't really help on this, I used the tool about 7 years ago before I really called myself an SEO but was kind of feeling it out. Last I checked it was a desktop application which means it doesn't run…

    @Sam_Barnes90 agree, I have one comment that brings in a steady amount of traffic every week that usually yields an engaging visitor. as far as SEO value my vote is "very little."
  10. Patrick Coombe added a comment on Ask Inbound: What's the most effective way to keep track of resources and tools?
    I use Google Keep to organize: random thoughtstoolsideasnotes / remindersetc For instance blog post ideas I color code as orange while new tools to try will be in blue. I like it because it is "bui…
