About Melissa Mackey

I’ve been doing PPC since the dawn of Adwords in 2002.  I’m currently Director of Paid Search at Compound Growth Marketing.  I love working from home in East Lansing, Michigan.

If you like this blog, check out my musings in my regular columns on PPC advertising for Search Engine Land and Search Engine Journal.  I’ve spoken at all the major SEM conferences, including SMX Advanced, SMX Next, and HeroConf.

When I’m not doing all that, I’m enjoying Michigan State University football & basketball with my family, or playing sax in the MSU Alumni Band, or playing clarinet in the Meridian Community Band, or training for my next walking race.

A note about social media: I love meeting other PPC professionals, both in person and online. That’s why I’ve included my social profile icons on this blog. That said, I only connect to people I recognize. So feel free to connect with me in the social-sphere, but please reach out and introduce yourself first! Twitter is a great place to do this; or start a conversation by leaving a comment on one of my posts. See you in cyberspace!
