As a sophomore in college Allan co-founded an IT products and services company in Tennessee with 4 other friends. They started the company with a grand total of $500 in cash (given to them by their parents). Three years later he helped co-found an Internet Service Provider (ISP) when dial-up service was the only game in town. The ISP was sold in late 2000 to a larger ISP and the IT company was sold two years later to a larger VAR. He then became the Senior Vice President of Marketing for that larger VAR helping them grow from 1 million in annual revenue to over 13 million in annual revenue during his 12+ years there.
He now works at W. O’Donnell Consulting, Inc., a New York based MSP, IT consulting firm and digital marketing agency serving Manhattan as Director of SEO & Marketing, helping the company grow by utilizing Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Advertising, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and other inbound marketing techniques to generate interest, leads and closed deals. Allan is an experienced digital marketer and growth hacker and has helped numerous companies grow using different online marketing strategies. He is also a proud Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) Certified Barbeque Judge, soon to become a Master Judge, judging BBQ contests all over the country.
