Name: Naomi Goonetilleke
Responsibilities: SEO, accounts, legal, copyright and administration
Background: Hi, as you already know, my name is Naomi and I am in charge of all of the day to day tasks for our client base. I cover pretty much everything, from copywriting to link baiting. I have been working for Reboot Online for over 11 years now. I was never really sure what I wanted to do and that inevitably resulted in me having two degrees. The first is a Bsc Hons in computing from Middlesex University and the second a PDGL (law degree) from The College of Law. I have never really seen myself fitting into the IT or solicitor mould and in my heart have always really wanted to work for myself. Along my journey I have also worked for a number of blue chip companies including Reuters and Cegedim. So, together in 2001 with Shai, we started Reboot Online and have been going from strength to strength. I tend to take care of the office tasks, some of the groundwork and initial study of any new clients. I also get my teeth into any domain, copyright or legal matters that need answering.
Name: Kate Brownhill
Responsibilities: SEO, domain names, PR and analysis, penalty recovery expert.
Background: Hi, Unlike the others I am in front of the computer for the majority of the day. When you first call, you invariably will talk to Shai or Naomi initially however I tend to be the cogs and wheels person behind the scenes. I carry out all of the preliminary analysis and planning work, formulating a strategy which we then all work on together depending on the skills needed for each area. I have a background in PR and marketing; working for some high calibre companies including Pfizer, EDF Energy and Glenfiddich. My previous career involved a great deal of travelling around the world from New York to Scotland and when my first child came along I decided a needed a home based career in which I could utilise my talents. I was thrilled when I joined Reboot Online in 2005 and was able to juggle motherhood together with a career using my skills with a friendly team of like-minded people.
Name: Shai Aharony
Responsibilities: SEO Analysis, SEM and Link Building Campaigns
Background: Hi, my name is Shai and I am the MD of Reboot Online. I am a very experienced SEO consultant having previously worked for some large companies such as Flight Centre, Market Force Media, IPC Magazines, Microgen, Oracle and CACI. I also hold monthly talks in local SMB and Business Link meetings here in Hertfordshire where I introduce new and old entrepreneurs as well as business owners to the world of SEO and Web Marketing. I am continually amazed at how many businesses are completely unaware of the massive, rapidly growing customer stream they are missing out on by just burying their head in the sand and completely ignoring the online sector. Online presence of your business is now a definite necessity and is often the main source of income for many businesses. Saying that the internet will take your business to a different level might sound like a cliché, but it is 100% accurate. I hold a BSC Hons Aeronautical Engineering degree which is where I first started getting interested in IT and computer programming. Over the years, as the internet started to gain pace, I became interested in search engine optimisation so that I could further my own, friends and family websites in the various search engines rankings.
Gradually, I became the person to go to for anything related to search engines and in 2001 the MD of the company I worked for at the time, created the first SEO department and asked me to head it. That was my first official SEO position and even though I continued to work within other roles, SEO became my main passion. At Reboot, I tend to be the main contact for most business owners, whether in face to face meetings or over the phone and my previous IT support experience has taught me the variety of skills necessary to match my language to the client’s level of knowledge. Each business is unique with individual needs and every step of the way I ensure the client completely understands the stages and the progress we are making. Some clients like to fully understand what we are doing and we tend to pick up on that and assist where possible. Some clients are climbing the learning curve of SEO and we do our best to help with this by offering workshops and publications. Other clients prefer to train their own staff to gradually take over the routine elements of SEO and we can also help with this. Whatever your levels of experience of SEO, size of your business or your budget we can assist. So, that’s it, you have met the team behind Reboot Online. We hope to meet or speak to you very soon.
