Jennifer Horowitz

Marketing and the psychology behind it has always fascinated me. I am trained in marketing with a special emphasis on online and digital marketing and copywriting as well as Search Engine Optimization (SEO). I’ve been doing this for over 13 years now and have watched Search and Social, as well as Web Development evolve over the years. Search has evolved from placing keywords strategically on a page to a much more complex myriad of marketing, copywriting, technical coding and more. As technology evolves, so does human behavior and interaction with that technology. Understanding this is key to success in online marketing.

EcomBuffet and myself are both pioneers in the industry, proactive in developing successful techniques and strategies to take businesses to the next level. My focus is always on results based marketing. It's about business growth. That typically starts with identifying and fixing problem areas and new growth potential. The biggest problem most businesses face in today's competitive online marketplace is creating exposure, getting their message heard amid the noise online and finding a way to reach not just any traffic but the ideal traffic.

I have recently launched the SEO & Social Media Profit Academy, which was created to empower business owners to take their SEO and social media into their own hands and quickly and easily turn it into a revenue producing activity. The membership program arms business owners with specific details, how tos, and strategies to quickly profit from SEO and social media.
