Marc Knoll Pic

An expert in the making

It was during my studies when I got sucked into the digital ecosystem of the web. After creating my first websites, I wondered, "How do I get people to see that my websites exist?" Answering that question marked the start of becoming an online marketing expert.

Three years later, I'm a certified AdWords individual, built a profitable blog with 400k+ monthly visitors and helped companies like Peugeot and Citroën promote their content online.

My goal is to continue walking down the path of becoming an expert in online marketing and to keep learning new things such as coding.

The web is a huge sandbox. Most people just play in it, but you gotta build your own digital castles to understand how it ticks.
