Critical Mass Bill's pretty cool Chicago employer
LinchpinSEO Bill's SEO blog
Critical Mass looks to be a pretty cool Chicago agency. Credit to them for understanding the need for a SEO guru the caliber of Bill Ross. Bill's presence means Critical Mass gets it and, from a quick review of their site, they have considerable skills. Cutting clutter is the not so hidden subtext of SEO And The Amazon Paradox. Looks like Critical Mass knows how to fire up a chainsaw. I know Bill does as he has done so in my favor many, many times :).
Someone suggested championing great agencies and other SEOs is a conflict to my current position as Director Marketing at Atlantic BT in Raleigh. I don't agree. There is going to be enough web development and Internet marketing work to go around in our lifetime. Ecommerce is only 8% of total retail and going up, so our rising Internet marketing tide is going to lift all boats.
Secondly great work is great work. Everyone at Atlantic BT is dedicated to learning from the great work of others. We are confident in our skills and ability to continue to create greatness too. My friends have always helped and vice versa. The fact our paychecks don't have the same name on them any longer means little. We help first and worry about everything else a distant second :). This "help first" ideology forms the basis of our Gift Economy according to Seth Godin (author of Linchpin) and Gary Vaynerchuk (the "wine guy" and author of The Thank You Economy). I know Bill lives by this help first credo otherwise he wouldn't have asked me to write a guest post in the first place.
Thanks Bill. Great to work together again after all these years :).
