From Nerdy Teenage Wrestling Fan to YouTube Certified Expert – Never Give Up on Your Dreams!
Hello! My name is Alan and I am a stats-aholic!
My initial love affair with stats, social media and web design started when I was 15 years old (all those many many moons ago), when I founded and built a wrestling fan website. This community grew to over 16,000 rabid ‘fans of wresting’, sparking my love for all things stats, social media and web development.
Spin forward a few years later and in 2007 I finally helped to found a web development company. In the first few years I was the ‘sales guy’ and ‘social media’ expert, but overtime as I fell in love with the industry I started to learn more and more… This first love affair ended in an amicable split when I left the business to go freelance/self employed — and never looked back!
Then my soul mate found me…
In the early spring on 2012 my love of stats and social media finally led me to YouTube. This is the ultimate blend of Social Media Marketing, Community Building and enough stats to drown in! Since then I have made 1500+ videos, helped develop social media brands, achieved millions of views for personal and client based projects.
I can also proudly confirm that I am a Fully Certified YouTube Consultant accredited by the YouTube Academy. YouTube Certification in YouTube Channel Growth, YouTube Asset Monetisation and YouTube Content Ownership.
Over the last few years I have worked with blue chip companies for web development and consultancy, including possibly hundreds of SMEs. Online shops, content management websites, small to medium business websites and online marketing. Personal promotional works with Music Festivals, Holiday Companies, Online Retailer Muscle Food UK, Music Video Channel Kerrang TV, Naughty Snack Brand Pot Noodle, Glasses Retailer Firmoo and YouTube Tool TubeBuddy.
