I am Ian Gordon, and I have been involved in digital publishing and developing and executing online marketing strategies since 1998, when converting a document to PDF was a really big deal and websites were nothing more than electronic yellow pages ads.I have owned a small business in one form or another, for most of my adult life. I bring this business owner's mindset and more than a decade of online marketing experience to every project I take on.
My company, Real Digital, helps small to medium sized business achieve their online goals. We do this by using the right combination of Website Strategy, Social Media Marketing, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Pay Per Click Advertising (PPC), Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO), and Web Analytics Consulting.
Prior to moving to Toronto, I was Founder and President of an educational publishing company, where I helped college professors author customized textbooks for their courses, and helped educational institutions develop and implement Intellectual Property and Copyright Compliance policies.
When I'm not busy helping my clients, I still enjoy helping people start their own companies through my business startup podcast.
