About You:

  • You came to this page by clicking on an ad placed on
  • You’re likely a small business owner or marketer with small marketing budgets. Agencies either won’t work with your budget, or management fees would equal to your marketing budget.
  • You want to get a better understanding of fundamental pay per click (PPC) marketing campaigns & small business campaign strategy. You can use this where you work now, or get another job where you use this skill.

About Me: 

  • I’m a former mechanical engineer and I transitioned into digital marketing because of a genuine curiosity & interest.
  • I’ve worked in large & small agencies, on clients all across the board. I used to work full time at an agency, but now work full-time building & managing PPC accounts for small businesses.
  • I know that most small businesses can utilize the Google Ads (AdWords) platform to build efficient campaigns at a low cost. I’m also an unbiased resource to help you genuinely make the most of the platform. Sure, Google offers courses, but they’re incentivized if your campaigns spend more.
  • I thoroughly enjoy teaching and have been doing it for years. I’ve trained junior PPC specialists who had no knowledge, and I also teach a boxing class regularly, which is a hobby/passion of mine.

Feel free to contact me at with any questions. My resume is available here, and LinkedIn profile available here.

  • Bids & Budgets: how Google’s bidding/budgeting structure works, and how to set up your campaigns to make the most of the platform.

  • Creating ads: Learn how to create the perfect ad for the specific search query. Also – we’ll talk about testing multiple unique offers in ads, and how to set things up quickly & easily.
  • Optimizing your website: I’ll show you how to use Google’s tools to optimize your website with specific keywords & use the data we collect to optimize your overall website experience.
  • Questions – You get an open question/answer session.
