About Me

Mike HallMy name is Mike Hall – I am a Senior Online Marketing Executive at a leading UK digital marketing agency, Coast Digital. I also work as a freelance online marketing consultant, specialising in helping out local businesses improve their online presence through effective use of all appropriate channels, whether it be through search engine optimisation (SEO), social media, pay per click advertising (PPC), content marketing etc.


I’m a regular blogger both on here and on the Coast Digital blog, and my public speaking experience includes a panel debate at TFM&A2013 to discuss “Who will win the Search Engine Battle… Google or Facebook?” in light of Facebook’s (then) recently announced Graph Search and running a CIM Breakfast Workshop on the subject of Google Analytics. I also dabble in affiliate websites, including my most recent Christmas Jumpers UK and Onesies UK websites.

Outside of my working life, I play in a local pub covers & functions band, Dog In A Side Car – you’ll often find us at Pat Molloys or V Bar in Colchester, and we’re available for parties, weddings, corporate events etc.

During the Summer I’m a keen (but not especially good!) cricketer… I play for The Real Oddies in the Piri Piri NECL league. I’ve also recently taken up golf – again, I’m not particularly great but it’s a great way to get exercise without realising it!
