I was Anna Spear until May 2011 when I got married and became Anna Lewis.
I’ve been working in SEO, PPC and Web Analytics since I finished university in 2008, here’s some detail about how I got to where I am now.
My degree was in Advertising at Southampton Solent which covered marketing, business and advertising skills which combined with my online advertising project for Unicycle.com and enthusiasm for all things internet based helped me get my first SEO job.
I’ve been working at Koozai, a digital marketing agency with offices in Southampton and London, since Spring 2010 and love working with such a fun and motivated team. I’ve written a number of posts about my favourite topic website analytics and even filmed some tutorial videos!
I’m a guest blogger on Econsultancy, a leading resource and community for digital marketers. You can find my posts on the Anna Lewis page.
One of my early aspirations when I started out in SEO was to one day be able to be a part of the SEO Chicks blogging team, which I was very excited to be able to do in 2012.
I’m a big fan of ThinkVisibility and BrightonSEO – the two industry conferences I’ve been to. At Think Visibility 6 I gave my first presentation, a 10 minute talk about Multi Channel Funnels in Google Analytics, which went very well.
I also had fun smashing a pinata to pieces during the lunchtime entertainment!
In 2012 I have also spoken at SMX London on the topic of Overlooked, Underloved and Unkown Analytics, BrightonSEO where I gave away free Google Analytics dashboards and custom reports and finally a Distilled meet up where I talked about how to track content marketing.
