TKOSEO Management Staff
DAVID EVANS, CEO of SEO Division
There is an old Aesop quote that states “After it is all said and done, there is more said than done.” This statement is what drove David Evans, CEO of TKO SEO, to reverse this trend in Internet Marketing and to create an action filled Search Engine Optimization business.
Having an early background in aviation, David pursued the commercial aviation industry and soon became a Commercial Instrument Rated Pilot, but he soon found that this was not enough. He continued his love of aviation and before long was a FAA Certified Multi-Engine Instrument Rated Flight Instructor, training other young pilots in the principles of flight, so that they could also achieve their dreams of flying. David’s pursuit of the principles of flight and aerodynamics translated to developing a unique mathematical approach to his business life.
How Competing on Analytics changed the way we do internet marketing. In today’s online marketplace, there are a massive amount of companies competing for the same real estate. As Google becomes more and more advanced, they continually minimize the amount of competitors that are able to complete for the same market. For Google this drives revenue up, however, for businesses it increases their marketing budget exponentially.
Understanding this principle TKOSEO has developed a completely analytical approach as to how to help businesses dominate a market. Without having a firm grasp of the playing field, it is impossible to project a solid online marketing campaign.
David has created a masterful analytical approach to dominating a market, and coupled together with his Flight Instruction background, he is able to create simple step-by-step checklists enabling companies world-wide to dominate their niche markets through both custom built, customer matched website building and expert SEO.
Certified in Google Adwords, and a Google Analytics and Google Optimizer Expert, David has pushed the envelope of how business can reach their maximum potential online.
ROY REYER, CEO of Training Division
Roy Reyer believes stories become legends and he is living proof. He never calls himself an internet guru… he doesn’t have to… plenty of others call him a well-rounded Search Engine Optimization expert.
He’s made millions of dollars online for himself and for clients with websites that rank well in the search engines and sell well to their visitors. Roy is also a certified advanced SEO instructor with the prestigious Search Engine Academy, covering both the Arizona and Las Vegas regions.
For 20 years he worked as a cop enforcing the law, and protecting the lives of others, often risking his own life to do it. Reyer was called Lieutenant in the Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff’s Office for eight of those years. In another five year period, he was called “rabbit” by the dangerous motorcycle gangs he successfully infiltrated as an undercover narcotics officer.
In 1985, Reyer was with a team working on an undercover online bulletin board to catch credit card hackers. As the sting grew successful, he recognized drugs were also involved. This led Reyer into becoming the first undercover police officer to purchase drugs online [documented by the FBI]. Yes, this is years before Google existed.
Goodbye Gun and Badge. Hello Internet Marketing.
Now he puts Google on the Run!
After he retired as a lawman in 1997, Roy Reyer pursued his passion for computers. In the early days of the internet, it cost about $1000 a month to get online from his home in rural Wickenburg, Arizona. He worked overtime and designed websites to pay for it. Roy quickly made that investment of time and money worthwhile.
He was making a few thousand dollars a month online until he hired an SEO firm that didn’t tell him they used “spammy” tactics. Reyer’s website got banned by Google and his sales dropped to zero.
Getting Lower Online Rankings Led Him Higher, Much Higher. Being an ex-cop, Roy felt he should have known better and he enrolled in the Search Engine Academy. He was determined to learn all he could as quickly as he could, and constantly keep fingers on the internet pulse. By taking swift action, he learned his lesson and many more. When a #1 ranking on Google came to Roy in just four months after being banned, his online scorecard for radar detectors grew faster than the speeding customers who were lined up to buy from him.
Sales came easily. He sold you a persona. He sold “Radar Roy.” He sold an ex-cop and expert. He sold a guy who was nice enough to cross over from being “the man.” He shared knowledge and recommendations directly with his “Perfect Customer.” His message created their “Fantasy Result” of not getting speeding tickets. And … “oh by the way, if you had interest in buying a radar detector,” Reyer’s Radarbusters network of 45 websites would also be nice enough to sell you exactly what you needed building for himself a multi-million dollar online empire and totally dominating an industry.
In 2007, after years of never being able to pass “Radar Roy,” one of his competitors, Netshops, Inc., purchased Reyer’s empire for millions more than Reyer requested. Netshops insisted “Radar Roy” stayed on as their consultant. Amazingly today, his presence dominates the top of the search engine rankings despite having been bought out. Thirty online business owners immediately called Reyer pleading with him to take over their Search Engine Optimization and Internet Marketing campaigns, when they realized he had sold his business.
Reyer and Evans partnered to provide quality online Search Engine Optimization training. Currently their training site is ranked #1 the keyword “SEO Training” (www.seotrainingsw.com, www.seoroadmap.com) going up against the biggest “guru’s” in internet marketing. Together they are launching one of the largest video based internet marketing programs online.
Because of Roy’s love of people, entrepreneurs and business in general, he remains committed to helping clients achieve their dreams through building of “Google friendly” websites imprinted with the very best expert SEO practices. Reyer does this by using internet technology and with his commanding knowledge of how it works, keeping abrease of the constantly changing search landscape. Reyer not only helps with the backend SEO, but is a fabulously sought after trainer.
