Inspiration in a Credit Crunched World

My day is spent working across 2 sectors, financial services and Internet marketing. During a time when an economic recession is front page news and a leading industry publication is running a layoff tracker, it is often difficult to find the silver lining.  It’s for this reason I think it’s important to point out the following SEO’s who are generating successes during a challenging time.

Digital Operative – Choosing option number 3!

When facing inclusion in the ‘layoff tracker‘ mentioned above and options 1 and 2 consisting of re-writing resumes and living month to month, BJ Cook and Adam Levenson, opted for door number 3:

Dilute our savings, scan the market for opportunities, and do it

Based in San Diego, Digital Operative is an online agency for digital marketing, social media and technology. With 18 years of experience in the industry, BJ and Adam are passionate about what they do. The 5 short days it took the pair to build their new website and company is testament to this.

Good luck guys! Look forward to the next big thing.
