Bill Karas - Director of Online Marketing
I co-founded MSD Enterprises, an Internet marketing company in Miami, FL, and quickly harnessed the world of arbitrage marketing and affiliate/performance marketing. As these industries were relatively new, I developed an analytics and optimization technology, which helped turn MSD into a formidable marketing machine.
During this time, I specialized in search engine optimization, search engine marketing, email marketing, advanced analytics, landing page / conversion page optimization, geo-regional / day-parting optimization and traffic source optimization. After selling MSD, I retired from the industry to spend time raising my family in NH.
Throughout my career, I have owned several companies including Miami Computer Repair, which was the top computer repair company in Miami, FL. This gave me great insight into managing a mid-sized organization with a diverse range of team members and clients.
Over time, I discovered that I thrived on the creative challenges in Internet marketing, and I decided that I wanted to lend my expertise to the industry again. I joined The Discovery Communications Group in July of 2011 and became a partner in the company within three months. As the mobile web and social media continue to quickly integrate itself into online marketing, search engine optimization and branding, I look forward to applying my unique outlook and experiences to help The Discovery Communications Group dominate these industries.
When I'm not working, I love to spend time with my beautiful wife and children. I also enjoy playing guitar, real-time strategy games and brainstorming new ideas. I can be reached directly at 603-685-2919 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Connect with me via my professional social media profiles. LinkedIN | Google+
