1% of my brain set to words.
Welcome to the finally completed website of Todd Kron, Charlotte SEO, SEM and Inbound Marketing Director. If you made it this far I assume you are looking at my past work, what I know about marketing from the SEO blog or just enjoying the images of the only two things in life I did not get from the internet, My kids.
I Have Sold It Online.
Affiliate marketing taught me to compete and gave me a tool to measure what works. I have expanded into every form of online marketing from PowerSeller to managing 5 figure Adwords campaigns. 12 years ago I started by selling VHS tapes from Goodwill on Amazon.com for $1 net profit, since then I have generated 5 figure months from affiliate marketing every year ssince 2007.
I began in online marketing and SEO in Charlotte in 2002 and learned the true inner working of SEO as a creator of Affiliate marketing websites and through revenue producing Adsense websites. My ability to eat and pay the bills was hedged on the ability to rank.Read more →

Projects that were a hit!
These are a handful of the recent projects I am currently involved in or had previous documented success while working with my talented peers at CGR Creative. Every Day we work hard to grow and succeed in parallel with our client. While I had a leadership role in SEO, planning, strategy and analytics, I give full credit to the great designers, graphics artists and copywriters that make it possible to succeed on a personal and professional level. My peers are exceptional and our team at CGR is built on the foundation of people who truly love their fields and pursuits. I look forward to learning everyday by the surrounding of consummate professionals I enjoy the company of.

I pursue professional certifications constantly because I like to read, learn and take exams. It keeps me moving forward which in turn keeps a person sharp. There are alot of people these days who have the same title and job description as I do. There are very few who love onlime marketing the way I do. When a person enjoys their work as much as I do, success is inevitable.
