Welcome to another post from our “Meet the FindLaw Team” series. “Meet the FindLaw Team” provides insight into the day-to-day lives of our colleagues. Today we feature FindLaw Senior SEO Consultant Kevin Stirtz. Get to know Kevin by reading about his experiences at FindLaw below.
What is your current title?
Senior SEO Consultant, Solutions Support.
When did you join the FindLaw team and how did you get here?
I began here in early December of 2010 as a contractor on the Local Advance team. In June of 2011, I became a permanent employee on the Initial Fulfillment team. Now I am part of the Solutions Support SEO team which focuses on improving performance for our clients. Prior to joining FindLaw I have been a consultant, a small business owner and I served in management roles for several organizations. I’ve been developing websites since the late 90’s and I have managed a popular informational website since 2005.
What interests you most about lawyer marketing or your functional area?
I enjoy working with lawyers. Early in my career I had several jobs where I worked extensively with lawyers so it’s nice to be back in a role that provides this opportunity. The field of SEO is challenging but fun because it combines technology, marketing, strategy and creativity. It’s both an art and a science. And SEO, like most of areas of technology and the Internet, is constantly changing. We never get bored!
What activities does your work day typically involve?
Here are some activities you’ll find me engaged in here at FindLaw: Analyzing our clients’ websites and developing strategies to improve performance; consulting with our clients about their practice; goals and online marketing performance; researching changes in SEO and online marketing to understand how they might affect our clients; providing answers for teammates and clients on SEO and related issues; participating in and conducting training on SEO and other topics.
What are your interests outside of FindLaw?
I like hiking with my wife and friends and spending time with my 12 nieces and nephews. I enjoy blogging and developing websites and learning to play electric guitar. I am also continuing my search for the perfect chocolate chip cookie.
