Local SEO Analyst & Account Manager
Matt got his start in the digital space in 2012 while selling SEO products for a web hosting company. That led to a specialist role at an SEO agency where he got his first taste of local SEO working with lots of small business clients. Over the past several year’s he has done in-house SEO for a few companies where he gained more experience in local SEO and broadened his experience in a variety of areas like technical SEO and Google Ads. This broad experience makes him a great addition to the Sterling Sky team. (Not to mention his years of experience as a stock photo model on our website)
Matt loves helping small businesses optimize their online presence and has first-hand knowledge of some of the difficulties small businesses face when trying to DIY their own SEO. This broad experience makes him a great addition to the Sterling Sky team.
Outside of work, Matt loves spending time with his wife and 3 kids, playing Frisbee, and watching USC Trojans football. Matt is also a devout Christian.

Colan reviewed our website and then delivered a report on how to optimize for local SEO. He presented factor after factor, accompanied by separate TO DO lists for each. MY partner and I both recognized the excellence and value of the information delivered. Colan, thank you. https://www.lidivorcemediation.com/
In the past 10 years we've worked with many SEO companies to improve our web presence, organic positioning, and lead generation. Absolutely none of those companies were able to make an impact on our business like Sterling Sky has.
Sterling Sky specializes in value-driven SEO, which to a small business like ours means smart, strategic, long term, value-aligned SEO, and not gaming the latest twists for ephemeral gains.
Sterling Sky constantly strives to create a detailed understanding of our business industry in general and our particular space specifically - then combines that knowledge with our SOAP analysis and desired market positioning. The Sterling Sky team utilizes a wide range of strategies from internal brainstorming, website improvement, link building, earned media, and advertising. I experience this congruence personally because I have a monthly meeting to go over exactly this analysis on each of our verticals. Essentially, Sterling Sky is a detailed oriented, custom-built, local SEO company that is interested in understanding its clients' business in order to deliver long term value and relationship.
Over the past years, our business has grown constantly, culminating in more than 50% growth in 2019 alone. I attribute a significant chunk of that growth to our relationship with Sterling Sky maturing after years of carefully building blocks of success with our partnership. After being burned several times with generic, copy-paste one size fit-all SEO companies, I can confidently and very happily say that we found a home SEO company with whom we intend to have a very long partnership.
