AS 29: Better ACOS Optimization and PPC with Sean Smith

26 May 2016

Today we had Sean Smith on the show. Sean has more than 6 years of experience in several industries working in various capacities. He’s worked in strategy consulting, team management, and product development in different markets. A couple of years ago he taught himself SEO and was hired in-house as a professional SEO with an award-winning well-funded high growth tech startup in Chicago.
