Hey, I’m Taylor Reaume. I am most well known for selling a stock music website, LOOPWISE, which at the time, was called the largest competitor to MySpace.com by several VC firms.
When I was 27, I sold the website for six figures to Jupiter Media in New York, and they hired me as their SEO Director for several web properties, including Photos.com, Graphics.com, Clipart.com. A few years later Jupiter Media was sold to Getty Images for 100 million dollars.
Around that time, I moved from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara, CA and continued to grow my boutique web marketing agency, Search Engine Pros.
Clients I’ve worked for include Round Table Pizza, SUBWAY, Lull, i2Verify, Allied Van Lines, TheStorySolution.com, Photos.com, Graphics.com, Clipart.com, iStockPhoto.com, MediaBistro.com, and many others.
My work has been featured in Forbes, Huffington Post, USA Today, Business.com, Search Engine Land, Search Engine Roundtable, Business2Community and others.
From 2010 to 2015, I founded and ran the largest SEO meetup group in Santa Barbara, CA called the SEO MEETUP GROUP. This group was a local community meetup held every Thursday at 5:30pm at The Eagle Inn. Those weekly workshops are how I grew my marketing agency in the Santa Barbara, CA area.
I’ve been a speaker at many local and national conferences on the topic of website marketing. I eat, sleep and breathe website marketing strategy, spending at least 12 hours per day learning and practicing.
In 2020, I turned 40, still single, still saving myself for Oprah. Still living a block from the pier in Santa Barbara (best place to suffer through a pandemic).
LAUNCH805.com is where most of my energy was spent during the pandemic. LAUNCH805 is new full service local SEO agency based in Santa Barbara, CA. The service helps business owners grow their web presence using advanced local SEO tactics, responsive website design, social media marketing and email marketing.
Over the years, I’ve built up this massive link directory of the best links on the web related to the website marketing industry. This is a valuable resource for business owners building a web presence.
Below are several tools I’ve scripted which you might find helpful:
BLOG TAG GENERATOR – a tool for writers, quickly change between lower case and upper case letters, capitalize, uncapitalize, convert to mix case and transform your text, count words, extract tags for blogs.
LINK ROBOT – a tool which helps link builders find places to build links on the web.
INBOX PREVIEW TOOL – a tool for email marketers to visualize how the email subject line will look on a mobile phone.
PPC PREVIEW TOOL – a tool for Google Ads, which helps business owners visualize advertisements on Google.
Fun fact, I’m a huge comedy enthusiast. Many of my friends are comedians. But I am not a comedian! I wish! 😉
Comedians have always fascinated me. They are fearless and have a positive outlook on life. I think we can all learn something from comedians, especially when it comes to fearlessly persevering in a web strategy.
Fear and lack of positive attitude holds so many people back from reaching their full potential.
There are two kinds of entrepreneurs, those who succeed, and those who quit too soon.
But there’s another reason I love comedians. They are amazing writers. If you’re a comedy writer, and you’re reading this. Let’s connect!
Comedy writers are rare, and difficult to come by. They are naturally gifted at social media writing and creating engaging content.
I’ve been known to setup website barters with comedians in exchange for their comedic writing skills. Shaping a unique personality for the brands I’m working with is a big key to success. Having 30-40 comedy writers on tap is an invaluable resource.
After helping dozens of comedians build their web presence, as if I wasn’t busy enough, I started another agency called StandOutComic.com, a boutique marketing agency which helps comedians build their web presence.
What started as a passion project, has grown into a serious venture. If you know any comedians in need of a better web presence, they are usually glad to find me.
