Financial Advisor Marketing Consultant

Hi, thanks for visiting Advisor Web Marketing and for taking the time to get to know me!

Brent Carnduff – Business Background

Brent CarnduffI have an MBA in Financial Planning from California Lutheran University, and a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Oregon State University. Prior to starting Advisor Web Marketing (originally Echelon SEO) in 2010, I was an elementary school teacher and High School basketball coach for 17 and 15 years respectively.

I started reading about the opportunities for both individuals and businesses online in 2008 while I was working on my MBA, and decided that I really wanted to be part of it all. I was especially drawn to SEO. It offered many of the same outlets and challenges that I had previously filled with coaching – the need to be constantly learning, high level competition, a scoreboard (search engine ranking page) that clearly outlined the winners and losers, and the chance to work with a team to achieve success.

I’ve been working with financial advisors, helping to increase their search traffic and grow their businesses, since 2009.

In addition to this blog, I write about SEO on the, I am a staff writer for the second largest SEO site in the world – Search Engine Journal – and am syndicated on Steamfeed,  Business 2 Community, and Social Media Today.

Personal Background

I’m a Canadian ex-pat – I’ve lived in the United States since 1990. I’m married to Katie, and have two great kids (Daniel 21 and Ashley 18). When I’m not SEOing :-), I enjoy time with my family, cycling, walking, movies, reading and writing – my secret dream is to be a published author (both business and fiction). I cheer for the New England Patriots, Calgary Flames (very excited about LasvVegas’s expansion team),  UNLV Running Rebs basketball team, and the Oakland A’s.
