About JRPittman

All around SEO coding geek; AKA "Editing Bulldog" A true geek with a heart of code and SEO, I'm the Senior Project Manager of Level343 and Head of the SEO Department. They call me the "Editing Bulldog" - I'm pretty sure I'm the editing nightmare of writers everywhere, waving a pen across every document in the search for perfect client deliverables. When not buried in paperwork, I'm happily buried in website code, SEO research or playing with my kids.

Back to School eCommerce | What Are You Doing About It?

As a parent raising three healthy, active kids, I know “back to school” is a busy time. Between making sure everyone is registered for the school season, ensuring they all have clothes that fit (and are free of holes), and […]

The Mother of Invention Had More Kids and They All Talk on Social

It’s 2012. For years, many people have believed this to be the last year of life on earth, thanks to the Mayan calendar. Now an older calendar has been found that goes on for much longer, which leaves Dooms Day […]

Digital Marketing Shift and The New World Order

(Manipulating the Monetary Paradigm of the Time/Space Continuum)

Ladies and gentlemen, we’re at the boundary of business. We’re walking a tightrope at the forefront of technology and mining the frontier of fiber optic cyberspace. Information technology, social behavior, buyer psychology, the global economy – a slew of volatile, game-changing and disruptive changes have struck our beloved frontier and are radically reshaping an already rocky business landscape. As business leaders, innovators, entrepreneurs and so on, we thrive in an atmosphere of “change as a constant”, but does the rate of change seem like it’s speeding up to you?

Suddenly, our ways of doing business – the traditional, tried and true ways – feel lacking. “Slow and steady wins the race” is no longer a strong axiom (if it ever really was), buried under, “Full speed ahead Mr. Sulu!”

We no longer have time for long review processes. We don’t have time to spend examining every potential crack or flaw in a business plan. You – your business and business processes – must be extremely fast and flexible to survive in our accelerated, highly competitive world. There’s no more room for sedate family station wagons; we’d all better be driving Bugatti Veyrons. […]

Redefining Search Engine Optimization: We Do It Kind of Different

We’re starting to wonder if we (that is, the Level343 team) are really search engine optimizers. I mean, sure, we provide SEO services of the organic flavor, but when we see the varying examples and definitions of SEO, we have […]

I Really Want to Buy This From You…

Do you remember back in prehistoric times (i.e. before the Internet, Google and one-click payments) when you walked into a store, found what you wanted, looked at the price tag, walked to the counter and paid for it? As a […]

Repeat After Me: “Target. Market.”

Recent truth. A client came to us with a business strategy; their biggest concern was finding a copywriter familiar with the language usage of their target country. While English is a common language, the usage can change drastically from place to place, and copy written without this in mind is very noticeable.
