    Greetings from the Frozen East Coast

    Hi - officially, I'm new here. Unofficially, I've stopped by many, many times over the years to look for info or check out the webinars.

    I've been doing SEO / Local SEO / PPC Management, largely for local SMB's, for around 6 years or so. Marketing is not where my career started out - I took a long, strange route to get here (with stops in corporate IT, web design and affiliate marketing) - but I truly enjoy where I've ended up .

    Looking forward to sharing and getting to know everyone!

    Re: Greetings from the Frozen East Coast

    Hey MaryAnne, welcome to the forum. And thanks for taking time to do an intro.

    I used to be an affiliate manager and one of the leaders in the Affiliate space.
    I owned 5 Star Affiliate Programs, and the 5 Star Affiliate Forum. Maybe you've seen them or seen me around? I got out of AM 5 years ago but just got around to selling that business a year ago.

    So anyway, glad you joined us!

    Oh and I'd trade you weather. It's been in the high 80s in SoCal and next week will be over 90. IN FEBRUARY! I start melting when I have to walk my puppy.

    Hi MaryAnne! I think a lot of people probably landed in local from pretty strange directions... or at least, I did too. Went to school thinking I wanted to be a videogame programmer, then for 'reasons' thought I wanted to move to eastern Europe and needed to find a way to make money online. So... cut my teeth with affiliate marketing too, years ago. Strange where paths lead us.

    @Linda - I don't envy you that! I've always liked weather that's a little more cool and damp, though with the global warming nonsense, Portland summers are starting to get a little rough for me too. Least I have cats instead of a dog, though my partner keeps 'hounding' me to get one. Maybe when the little dude's a little older... long as I'm not the one that has to always walk it.

    Re: Greetings from the Frozen East Coast

    @Linda - yes I do remember you from the 5 Star program and the forum! And I think one of the domain forums too? Most of my affiliate sites are gone now too, but a couple are still alive, running mostly on autopilot.

    I don't envy you that weather, but be careful what you wish for - local weather pundits are throwing around numbers like "-6" for the weekend here. Hope your puppy is catching on to the whole routine so they go out, do things quickly, and you can both go back to the AC. I was housebreaking a puppy last year around this time - in the snow! (She just turned 14 mos)
