About Joey

I drive revenue. All other metrics pale in comparison. Be it billion dollar brands or startups, I've had the pleasure of crafting online strategies such that my clients achieve the type of revenue gains that garner press. I have over 20 years experience with Internet and web-based technology. My core competencies include web and application development, Amazon Marketplace optimization, affiliate marketing and organic search marketing strategy.

I have worked directly on architecting online marketing strategies, both domestic and international, for a number of Fortune 100 brands. As founder and CIO of MarketKarma, I oversee organic search strategy for all enterprise accounts and work to create innovative solutions to assist retailers in tackling their online marketing challenges.

Work Experience

Founder / CTO

MarketKarma

January 2011 - Today

Leading brands rely on our technology to manage their organic search presence, allowing them to extend their catalog and improve their visibility online. The results are clear: higher rankings, more traffic, and ultimately — more revenue. Retailers have an unprecedented opportunity to engage with consumers in more and more meaningful ways. The digital landscape has been transformed. The industry has fragmented, digital channels and platforms have proliferated, though most brands find evolving towards a model that effectively serves both user experience and marketing strategy to be a challenge. Search algorithms reward rich and targeted content. Taxonomies, templates, and assets in e-commerce platforms tend to be restrictive, inherently unstable, and may not fully differentiate product facets or leverage best practice markup. Escaping these constraints is critical to communicating value to the search engines and ranking effectively. We’ve all heard that ‘content is king’. But many e-commerce platform tools for managing digital catalogs do not scale effectively. We provide deep analysis of digital catalogs, tagging attributes of significance, regardless of whether they’re mentioned explicitly. This allows for creation of rule-based attribute facets and virtual categories that didn’t exist otherwise allowing retailers to extend their catalogs, enhancing visibility at scale.
