Phil Singleton is a Web Designer, an SEO expert and an award winning author.

He is a Duct Tape Marketing Certified Consultant and holds a B.S. in Finance from Fair- field University, as well as an MBA from Thunderbird, The Graduate School of Internation- al Management in Phoenix, Arizona.

Phil is an active blogger, and his content has been featured at Duct Tape Marketing, Freshbooks,,,, WebDesignerDe-, and many local Kansas City and Midwest regional print publications and media sites such as Thinking Bigger in Kansas City.

Over the course of his career, Phil has helped dozens of US start-ups and tech companies raise millions of dollars in strategic venture capital investment and cross-border licensing agreements in the Asia Pacific region; run the global retail and online sales divisions for a best-selling line of consumer software products; and started a software company in Asia, raising over $1M in venture capital funding, growing it to profitability with 25 employees, and then selling it three years later.

The latter experience is what got him into SEO and Internet marketing — in short, by fol- lowing the ROI trail to SEO.
