Dan Barker

DIGITAL, MARKETING, ECOMMERCE, ANALYTICS CONSULTANT |

I work with website owners to help improve their results. Usually the broadest objectives behind my work are to 'make more money' or 'reduce costs' for companies, but they can cover any other business goal.
I have a background of more than 10 years working with companies to improve their results through the web. Alongside that, I have a first class degree in Software Engineering, a post-grad certificate in Digital Marketing (top of class) and scored 88% in my last Google Advertising exam.
Today I work either direct with clients or through a couple of great agencies.
Projects can be at a strategic or tactical level. They usually (but not always) involve one or more of the following:
Specialties: Analytics, Search (SEO/PPC), Email, Conversion, Affiliates, Usability, Content, Ecommerce, Social Media, Design, Development, Customer Acquisition & Retention.

There are a few brief examples of things I've been involved in here on LinkedIn, or take a look at www.barker.dj & you'll find a little bit more there.
