As a Team Lead for the Search Engine Optimization Department, Jay McLeod helps increase visits and leads to client websites. He enjoys thinking outside of the box to draw the correct target audience, rather than just pushing for clicks and ‘eyeballs’—visitors to the page who have no interest in the information there.
The group at Single Throw is the most detail oriented and mission-targeted team Jay says he has ever worked with, which is saying something as he came to Internet marketing from the Air Force. He loves coming into the office ready to work with like-minded individuals who truly love what they do.
After being Honorably Discharged from the Air Force in 1999, Jay began working in Internet marketing. He has worked in many highly competitive industries, such as Education, Mortgage, Auto Warranty, and Medical lead generation. From small mom and pop businesses to large multi-million dollar corporations, he has worked on all aspects of digital marketing. Jay used his many years in the Internet Marketing field to drive targeted traffic to the proper pages to help clients succeed.
The past few years before Single Throw he worked in a marketing company with multiple lead generation departments, handling all of the digital marketing for those departments successfully. The experience of working on multiple industries at one single time helped him greatly during the transition to Single Throw. He believes each unique industry needs their own distinct brand of marketing. This is not a “cookie-cutter” industry; you have to be on your toes and adapt.
Confucius said “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Jay picked a career he not only loves, but is good at. “I could never see myself in any other industry.”
Jay has a loving wife and a brilliant 7 year old daughter, and he spends all of his free time making them smile and laugh.
