Author’s note: The Expert Platform podcast was launched in support of Tekton Press. Although I shuttered the business and put the podcast on indefinite hold, I’m keeping the episodes online at YouTube. I was fortunate to have wonderful guests like Alan. I learned a lot from our conversation, and I hope you benefit from it as well.

Alan has been designing websites and specializing in SEO for decades. He actually got his start back in the days of CompuServe, Prodigy, and NetsScape Communicator. Days which, incidentally, I remember with a mix of nostalgia and gratitude… gratitude that we’ve moved on!
Alan is an expert when it comes to building an online presence that can actually be found in the very cluttered internet of today. He really delivers some actionable, current strategies to getting ranked online today. Also, listen to the end, where Alan makes a special offer for Expert Platform listeners!
