It was. Crap it was.
Content is King. But the king has shadows; a multitude of specters that keep the crown on its head. They’re called ghostwriters.I had no idea just how many web content and SEO ghostwriters there were when I first burst into the scene. I barely knew what I was doing. I accepted a ghostwriting assignment and followed rough guidelines. Soon thereafter, I got my first humble pay check from what was to become my trade.Only after stumbling upon Interne...

Story
Tagline
Director of Content Strategy and Freelance Journalist for VentureBeat
Introduction

Gino innovates digital content strategy in inbound marketing campaigns integrating organic search, social media, and conversion optimization. Alongside colleagues in the online space, he recently started a digital marketing consultancy now accepting clients. With a wealth of experience in online environments and an expert grasp in content development, Gino aims to shape the future of Asia’s digital marketing industry as an imminent thought leader in the field.

For his digital marketing consultancy CultureTart Media, Gino leads and trains teams of writers, editors, and graphic artists to spearhead multiple marketing strategies. He manages projects and innovates internal structures to enhance performance. He crafts high quality content for cross-channel strategies that bring in target audiences and lead them from one stage of the sales funnel to the next. He coordinates with many entrepreneurs and executives to always align all strategies to business development needs. He tracks and structures KPI, striking the perfect synergy of realistic workloads, productivity, and work-life balance for their teams. He also assists with editing, QA calibration, and QC structure development and implementation.

On the side, Gino writes various web content pieces ranging from blog posts to press releases to full feature magazine articles for subjects on technology, business, startups, gaming, and geek culture. He is currently a freelance journalist for VentureBeat. Gino enjoys learning on the job. When not consulting for a living, he’s writing for leisure. When not writing for leisure, he’s reading or gaming for inspiration. When not doing either, he hatches schemes to change or destroy the world.

Bragging rights
Developing online content and marketing strategies for existing and new ventures across Asia, but more impressive is surviving three cunningly diabolical boys and one girl, all while keeping my wife borderline sane, and on the side gaming and reading and writing.
