Hi there, My Name, if you haven’t guessed it already is Mark Rushworth. Check my CV for a detailed history of where I’ve worked and my achievements.

A Personal History

I’ve been working professionally within digital media since 1998 and have pretty much done it all. Back in 1998, there were no SEO agencies so after graduating with a degree in ‘new media’, I started my career working freelance for a small IT company. Right off the bat, I managed to net some pretty big clients working for a PLC who held a group of websites and a radio station who needed new websites and information design. Even back then there was a massive need for SEO with everyone wanting to be top for their keywords on Yahoo, Altavista & Lycos etc. I’m pretty happy to say that even back then with ‘Meta Tag’ optimisation, I managed to snag a few top spots on these global search engines which needless to say, made some small clients very profitable for a while.

Around 9 months into my freelance career it was clear that there was money to be made, so I teamed up with a web developer and sales manager and set up our own company. Things went OK for a while until our sales manager left mysteriously without notice. At this point I put on the suit and took this aspect of the business on. So for a while my job description consisted of:

  • Creative Director
  • Sales Manager
  • Account Manager
  • Project Manager
  • Brand Manager
  • SEO Manager
  • Web Designer
  • Web Developer
  • Flash Developer
  • Graphic Designer
  • Video Director
  • Video Editor
  • Email Marketing Exec
