Lou Storiale (Website Project Management & Search Engine Optimization)

Lou Storiale

30 years of working experience and 17 years in technology working with private, non-profit and government institutions including large e-commerce companies and I love it. 14+ years of website project management, 12 years of search engine optimization including large e-commerce companies, 4 years of successful pay-per-click campaigns for local small businesses and more!

I take pride in implementing successful marketing tactics especially between 2008-2010 when I saved several small businesses from bankruptcy.

I have enjoyed giving over 200 client presentations and training sessions including developing international online training courses from 1999-2001. These courses have been accredited by CME (Continuing Medical Education), VNA (Virginia Nurses Association) and ACPE (Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education) (8-16 contact hours).

I love my work and I enjoy working with great people committed to constant and never-ending improvement.

If you want to know how I think: Here is a short list of technical, presentation, management and leadership books I have read, among others.
