Mark Lincoln is the Online Media go-to guy for a couple of brands belonging to one of New Zealand’s largest companies. He’s also the founder of this here blog and keeps meaning to work on NZ Blogs, a website for bloggers, in what’s left of his spare time. Mark likes social media, blogging, photography, and talks about himself in the third person too much.
I’ve been building a solid career in the fantastic and diverse world of online content since I first moved to New Zealand from the UK in 2001.
I love all forms of online media, from writing text content designed for results on the web, to photography and video editing. I also have a passion for search engine optimisation and love the challenge of creating fresh content that returns high ranking positions, or taking old and tired content and turning it into something destined for sound online presence.
I have a weakness for getting stuck into every form of new social media that becomes available. This is usually to experiment and evaluate the best uses for business.
I also really enjoy keeping up with other social media and online marketing types in New Zealand and love sharing ideas on how to best use these amazing tools to further New Zealand business.
Social Media Presentations
Throughout my career, I’ve been invited to speak at a number of conferences on the use of social media for charities and non-profits in New Zealand.
I spoke at the Fundraising Institute of New Zealand (FINZ) conference of 2009 and, following that, I was invited to speak at the Engage Your Community conference, also for non-profits. I’ve also spoken at a number of more personal workshops to an audience of 20 to 30 small business owners at a time, to introduce business professionals to social media.
