Hello, I’m Richard Baxter and this is my blog.
It’s quite sparsely populated for now as it’s quite new. Up until very recently, I was the sole owner of a very, very good digital agency: Builtvisible.com
I’m lucky enough to have (part) exited via an MBO, led by my good friend and Colleague, Geoff Griffiths who is the Managing Director at the agency. You can read more about the MBO here and here. I now sit on the company Board as a non-Executive Director and significant shareholder in the firm.
I’m an SEO expert of over 15 years and, though the years I’ve worked with brands, founders and marketing people on numerous websites from small startup companies to major global brands.
My passion, though is in the challenge of launching new websites. From designing and researching the architectural structures and UX to devising launch strategy to attract that all-important initial organic traction, I’ve proved myself numerous times.
I think I just really like the challenge of starting with almost nothing except hosting, a design and practically no budget. To keep my search engine optimisation skills sharp (and my interest constantly piqued) I own several Internet properties at various stages of development from “polished and driving revenue” to “needs more work”.
This, in my world is the test of a proper marketer.
My other passion, except for my homelife is racing.
I’m an amateur racing driver with an interest in vehicle setup and (naturally) improving my racecraft. I started in Radical racing and I’m currently contesting the MX5 Cup with the 750MC. Mazda racing may not seem as glamorous but it’s much, much more competitive than most other UK racing championships!
Here’s me in the car on a hotlap of Silverstone GP:
