Rich Pearce | SEO | Online Marketing
Rich grew up right on Main Street in Aspen, with a real local’s view of practically everything going on in town. Although he enjoyed (and still loves) all the outdoor activities Aspen has to offer, he somehow became a “computer nerd” in college, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Information Systems. He also discovered a love for writing and music along the way. Shortly after graduating, he put his computer and business skills to work in the local banking industry.
After a brief (15-year) stint as a Commercial Banker and IT Specialist for area banks by day (and wannabe rock guitarist by night), Rich found his true passion, assisting individuals and businesses with their computer and tech-related needs. Today, Rich focuses his talents on helping his clients successfully market their businesses online through search engine optimization (SEO), online marketing, content marketing, data analysis, and content copywriting and editing.
And, he still has that unique Main Street local’s view of Aspen.
