    A unified strategy and methods that help establishing a solid web presence and generate profit by making yourself easy to GET FOUND (get found) by earning the attention of visitors trough the creation, optimization and promotion of compelling content. CONVERTING (convert) the traffic into leads offering valuable content the users want to consume in exchange for their info and finally ANALYZING (analyze) and optimize your strategy accordingly and let happy costumers be the main advocates of your brand.


    This kind of Marketing was founded on the basis that traditional marketing and advertising have become less effective and expensive. Business "earn their way in" (in contrast to outbound marketing where they "buy, beg, or bug their way in") by creating valuable content which is available for the very first moment of the buying cycle: the search for your product/service. By having a well defined, optimized and monitored digital strategy you can be closer to the costumer, create a relationship by understanding their needs and offer what they search at the correct time.

What can I do for you?

  • As a web designer/developer I work online to create services that spread. A search on the web will show you amazing artworks made by talented designers and a deeper search will deliver even better ones. Prettiness or sheer utility isn't the goal anymore, therefore my work is continuous and based on relentless cycles of tests, measurements in order to improve and determine what works replacing "because I said so" with a proven "because it works." Instead of just making things pretty I use my learnt visual and aesthetic skills to create series of interactions that actually generate better outcomes and together we'll try to figure out how to lead the process that helps your company grow.

    As a web developer/marketer specialized in Inbound Marketing I have a track record in successfully helping developing and marketing clients websites. With a Computer Science background combined with Digital Marketing training and experience over the past 2 years I have helped business to promote their brand and generate successful campaigns. If you need a successful web presence I will plan and implement a range of online marketing strategies to help drive more traffic to your website and if you want total control of your eMarketing I will conduct 1on1 training and consultancy. So whether you need to improve your Facebook webpage or push your website higher up in the search engines get in touch with me and let me show you how I can help market your website.

Who is this guy anyway?

  • "Don't try to fit in when you where born to stand out"

    I'll keep it simple.. I'm a Portuguese (from Madeira Island) web marketer with design and front-end developer skills backed up by a software engineer background. When not glued to any tech thingy I love the beach (specially late afternoon summer days), the outdoors, friends quality time and good conversations... my biggest passion is traveling, food and I have an attraction that draws me to the sea and everything related to it. I'm skeptical but open-minded and if I were to describe myself in a word (like that's possible) I guess curious would be it. I'm into transparency (you should guess by this info I'm vomiting here) and try to have an easy going life enjoying in my own ways - "you can sleep when u'r dead". Drop a line and maaaaybe we can exchange some thoughts. Career wise.. I've been always interested in creative and visual stimulating areas so the design and beauty of everything is something that I'm fond with and actually care about. I try to combine that with some technical skills making them valuable assets towards my digital marketing strategies. So.. basically after all this blah... What the heck do I do? I usually sum it all up on this sentence: how to stand out on the overwhelming information jungle which is... the web!

Where has this guy been?

  • Since I remember remembering... traveling has been my very big passion and knowing new places my only personal collection. I'm very curious about different destinations, experiences, culture, people and their costumes (in fact.. anything different) and I would love (as many other) to travel trough the most of the world (I'm a man on a mission!).
    I've visited some countries but not nearly enough as I wish... so... growing this collection is a lifetime WORK IN PROGRESS. Check some of the places I've been:
