An Introduction to James Scroggie
Ever since I can remember I’ve wanted to be known. I wanted to be part of something truly great – A cause, a role. Something I can sink all of my passion into.
Going back 10 years or so, I was very much your average teenager. At the age of 17 looking for direction, looking for help and looking to make a difference. I met a random bloke in a local park as I drank a 3 litre bottle of White Lightning – he later turned out to be a Youth Worker with Corporate Youth Strategy (Stockport). During the following six months I bumped into him more often and ended up getting myself involved in running the local youth club, and a youth forum group. I then got involved in the UK Youth Parliament (UKYP).

As a result I got invited to a garden party at Buckingham Palace in Jubilee year for my efforts in the Youth Development and Voluntary Sector.
This was merely the start of a very varied career path. From my time in the UKYP, I have grown to hold ethics very strongly in my views and this has helped me be passionate about all aspects of my life.
About three years ago I was looking for a change in career path, and with the help of one of my closest friends who I’ve known for what is now 23 years, I found my way into a customer service role at an Internet Marketing Agency. I was shocked at how many business owners / managers I spoke to who in my view did not have the vision, passion, and drive to know where their marketing budget was going, and what it was achieving. I quickly developed a great interest in helping people create a real working strategy for improving all aspects of their online presence. I feel very passionate about strong values, ethics and trust.
Over the last three years I have developed an in-depth knowledge of Google Analytics, Google Adwords, Search Engine Optimisation, and over everything else, the ability to identify what is working, what is not, and how to implement a new marketing strategy for all businesses to succeed. I have managed marketing budgets of any value from £100 per month to £30,000 a month projects across hundred of different businesses within a vast range of industries.
My start to 2012 has already seen some exciting movement in my life, both with my personal life, and in my career.
I came into contact with Justin and Mark at SEONext where I found something I want to see in everyone – passion. The brothers have grown a company starting from nowhere to being the fastest growing company of its type in the UK. I am very proud to have joined the team and I look forward to bringing my passion to the table while the company goes from strength to strength.
2012 is looking at being one of, if not the best year of my life. With career-growth, expansion, and a hint of romance too.
Get in touch if you are passionate about what you want to achieve, and let’s bring our passion together to make this year the best for you too.
