Who I am

DME_SM_0209_2827-low2

Among the World’s Top 50 most influential PPC Experts (according to PPCSurvey.com), I have always been thinking that success is not easy money, but being proud of what you do.

All my (professional) life has been shaped on this motto, that is why I will probably never get rich (in money ;-).

I am one of the first Italian web professionals who got involved in search engines optimization in late ’90. Now I believe bettering user experience to increase conversions is the last frontier of web marketing.

Since then I have been working to several large web projects for some renowned Italian and multinational companies and NGO / Non Profit organizations, at the beginning as marketing manager of one of the leading Italian web agencies and, since 2008, as freelance professional in web marketing and CRO.

In 2012 I founded ADworld Experience, which now is the largest PPC event in Europe (the largest one in the World based mainly on real optimization case stories).

In 2018 I got my book “Agile AdWords” published by Hoepli (the leading tech publishing house in Italy) and it became the best selling Italian book on Google Ads (with a second edition published in 2020). In 2016 I have filed a US patent named “PPC CheckMate”, which is the optimizing methodology explained in the book.

I am a founding member of the Paid Search Association (whose aim is to develop the PPC market in the World), together with the World’s best professionals of the Industry.

I am a regular contributor of important international web marketing blogs, such as PPCHero, State of Digital, The SEM Post and others.

Since 2009 I have been working also in Usability, User eXperience & Conversion Rate Optimization, launching usability tests live or remote and optimizing several projects for my customers.

I regularly speak in many of the largest web marketing international conferences such as SMX London, Brighton SEO, PPC Master (Berlin), SEM Days (Bucharest), Web Marketing Festival and, of course, ADworld Experience.
