William S Thompson

Experienced Digital Marketing Professional

Hi, thank you for taking time to visit my website! Let me first just say, my passion is Digital Marketing. Specifically, SEO, SEM and content marketing. I’ve been working professionally in marketing in some form or another for over 10 years. However, I’ve been working in web design and marketing for over 10. Before that, after getting my degree in Design/Animation, I had a career as a 3D and Character Animation artist for 10 years. I switched gears around 2008, after moving back to the Kansas City area, and started focusing on building websites, and was fascinated at how even the smallest changes in code and meta tags could affect the number of visitors coming in from Google. And…I was hooked.I had found a new passion that I didn’t even know I had.

Since then, I’ve been optimizing business websites, writing quality content, managing paid search campaigns, and working in all facets of digital and even print marketing. Success for me comes in even the smallest forms, such as lowering a bounce rate, or improving conversions and sales and ROI, or increasing exposure and branding. But that doesn’t mean my successes have been small. I’ve been proud to be part of some drastic improvements in traffic and conversions for both B2B and B2C customers and businesses.

Besides work, I am also passionate about skiing, hiking, biking, basketball, ping pong, great music and movies, and of course, the KC Chiefs and Royals. If you believe I might be a great fit with your business, please contact me and I’ll be thrilled to talk about my skills in more detail. Have a great day!

If you're looking for a kind, detail oriented, team player, William is it! He has a vast knowledge and is always willing to help out and find answers or work toward a solution. It's been wonderful working on the same team as 'Dink' and I know my skills have grown with the knowledge he easily shares with the team. He is very dependable, intelligent and willing to put in the work needed to support his customers and anyone on the team. Dink goes the extra mile for everyone around him. Dink is a great guy, coworker, employee and Web Presence Manager.

"I have had the distinct pleasure of working alongside Dink (or, "William") for just about a year on the Web Presence Management team. Coming into this position, I was lacking extensive knowledge in regards to search, and this was a frustration of mine. Ever cognizant of his team's well-being, Dink spent time with me ensuring I was well-informed and knowledgable enough to feel confident on the subject. Not only does Dink take good care of his team, he ensures his clients are pleased and informed as well. I've learned an incredible amount from him, and am undoubtedly better because of it. I would recommend Dink for any position in the digital space, and his uncanny ability to make those around him better is unrivaled."
