About Scott

scott bates

I started my career in Online Marketing back in 2016, after I pivoted from an 18 year career in Information Technology.

Before that, I’d been nerding out about SEO since 2013 when I opened a Shopify eCommerce store selling highly collectible retro video games. Those games were expensive and I was tired of paying the high seller fees on eBay.

I optimized that Shopify store in Google search and sold all video games using the organic search traffic.

Eventually, I ran out of video game collectibles to resell, so I closed the Shopify store and started a side hustle in 2016 helping small business owners configure their WordPress blogging sites for SEO.

Today, I freelance with businesses to help them generate inbound leads using blogging and SEO as a content strategy.

Some of my accomplishments as a blogger include starting a personal finance website called Money And Bills in early 2019.
