Hi.. I’m Robin..a British veteran internet marketing consultant, since 1997 and a creative content strategist.
You can read a bunch of (over 40) client testimonials about my skills/results/attitude blah blah on LinkedIn.
I live in Estonia, in a beautiful forest actually, 12km from the nearest shop!
I have 3 main interests professionally right now (April 2022)
Helping clients succeed in saving time and money on their IT hardware and devices. I do that through my role as Content Strategist for Markit who have a unique business model which is proving enormously helpful and popular to over 10,000 companies in 5 continents. Read some of the IT Procurement related papers and success stories I have written or orchestrated.
Developing a range of medicinal mushroom products
Why? Because mushrooms contains an array of powerful ingredients that can support a healthy lifestyle and, most importantly, support your immune system! I’m especially interested in chaga (which technically isn’t a mushroom actually!)
Read more about the potential health benefits of Estonian chaga here.
Helping out at Pillapalu Forest Retreat (a cool place where companies and groups go for am buildig activities, seminars etc.)
It’s where I live and work so I also, when time allows, help with fixing up the place and coordinating volunteers projects.
I usually offer digital marketing and website content strategy consultancy but as you can see I’m too busy to take on new clients now, except in rare cases. Bribe me lol!
I have worked on hundeds of projects for governmets, multiationals, start ups and so on. I don’t talk much about client work but here’s a couple to maybe pique your interest:
I developed the content strategy and wrote/edited content for the e-Governance Academy website. Take a look and see what you think.
Robin gave to the website of e-Governance Academy fresh input how to make the page more sales-oriented and easily readable and findable for target groups and for Google, as well. Most all of his recommendations are worthy of taking into consideration and execution sooner or later. I appreciated also his thorough method of working and outcomes in time.Anu Vahtra-Hellat – Communication Manager at e-Governance Academy
I also helped Markit get nominated as a Finalist for the World Procurement Awards. A first for an Estonian company and a first for vertical (IT) solution provider in the indirect procurement sector. Truely awesome result thanks to an amazing team of Markiteers and visionary clients. Update: Nominated again in 2022 as Finalist 🙂
A bit of background about me as a person
Liverpool fan, father of two amazing kids, world traveler (on hold…grrr).
I have launched, run and sold two European internet marketing agencies. Along the way I have created, consulted and managed hundreds of website development projects and internet marketing/advertising campaigns for governments, banks, B2C, B2B etc.
I think out of the box, have strong opinions, tell it like it is and believe the devil (and “gold”) is in the detail.
I’m not cheap to hire but no silly retainers are required and Oh…I guarantee my work. Rare these days.
