Meet Our Customer Success Manager : Bucky Helms
Bucky got into SEO and Web Design out of necessity while managing his own local pressure washing company back in 2004 and the following years. He learned what it took to be successful online and quickly realized that marketing and SEO was a skill set that could allow him to help others to not have to learn the hard way as he had. He launched BIGdeal Marketing Solutions in late 2014 in order to bring together the many marketing/advertising tools and services that he had acquired over the years in order to better position himself as a brand. This has enabled potential clients to take advantage of his expertise in their various marketing needs. He has since partnered with Web20Ranker as an SEO outsource and continues to help grow both his brands as well as act as Customer Success Manager for Web20Ranker.com

I’m MUCH more comfortable in sales now… “Practice makes perfect” as they say, and I get plenty of sales call practice at web20 every single day!

What drew you to Web 20 originally? And how has Web 20 changed since?
I had been using web20 as an outsource for a couple of years and was active in the LCT FB group. I really enjoyed the knowledge there and the Web20 team dynamic looked inviting! The technology development in the company has been great to help with and I wish you guys could be a fly on the wall to see what we have in store!

One quote you live by?

I never knew who said this originally and always paraphrased but Google said it was him so there it is.
How do you define success?
Happiness in what you do… Freedom of Time… More Money Helps Though.
What has been your favorite project at Web 20?
Building out the Customer Success Dept… It’s a work in progress but being able to influence top-level decision making and having a value-first approach for the end-user is great for my well-being as a nurturer at heart. The Local Marketing Mastermind is a close second though!

That’s deep… I’m not sure I have ever had to answer that. Probably my failure in others maybe? I don’t want to fail anyone in what I’m doing for them I guess…
Where is your favorite place to be?
Mountains… on a sunny trail. Wilderness
