Meet Dennis – SEO, Digital Marketer, Coffee Lover, Civil Engineer, Street Fighter (Player) & Wannabe Wrestler
He technically started his journey online in the early 2000’s by reselling electronics, like home wireless phones, cameras and portable “VCD” players.
He’s a civil engineer by chance and not by choice. He’s a father that LOVES his wine & coffee (Know a great third wave coffee place? Let him know!) and also taught himself to play the guitar. Among other hobbies and useless things, he still watches WWE, dreams of going to Wrestlemania one day and considers all Final Fantasy, Zelda & Street Fighter games near and dear to his heart.
Today, he’s a digital marketer, a blogger or sometimes called an SEO.
Of all those titles, one thing is a definite one, he’s an entrepreneur.
If you want a full story, he can’t imagine who’d want to, then he has a long one hidden within this site if you can crack the secret code.
How It All Started
It was mid 2003. Dennis got a post card from Google about their new AdSense network.
Anxious to try it out, he started a blog on Blogspot. A blog that talked about the new commercials in the Philippines and what he thought was done correctly.
It was nothing special, the internet was still young BUT that was his first time earning online, even if it was just a few cents. It opened his eyes. It was indeed possible to make money online.
But things didn’t end up all sweet and easy. He graduated engineering school. He lost sight of what he wanted along the way. He missed opportunities and failed in business ventures and blogging became an afterthought.
He got back into learning how to sell online around 2007 while studying in Beijing. Interestingly enough, the year the 4 Hour Work Week was released. It was the book that sold the dream to him.
One thing bothered him though, how do you start an online business?
That’s when he started researching and stumbled into the affiliate marketing/PPC/SEO/digital marketing world. The rest, is history.
After years of ups and downs, algorithm updates, new experiences, results from tests of different strategies which you can only find out if you do it and go through the processes, Dennis finally co-founded the LeapFroggr brand.
Today, he writes for the LeapFroggr blog, creates the weekly newsletter content and oversees it’s operations that is limited to a very select number of clients.
Why It Took So Long To Re-Start Blogging
Initially mentioned in Sue’s blog, Dennis failed multiple times in blogging. It’s how he learns.
After a long hiatus from the blogging world, he came back mid 2014 to start working on the LeapFroggr blog.
Today, Dennis posts once a month on the blog and is humbled to have made countless new connections because of it. To those people that he has connected with along the way, Dennis wants to thank you for everything, from the bottom of his heart.
Dennis believes in optimizing his life, NOT just websites.
Just like how he does SEO, he sticks with the basics and tests things slowly to see what works.
For someone that thinks 9am is the earliest he can really wake up to, now, Dennis wakes up at 6am consistently. Starting his day off with his version of the Miracle Morning which includes meditation, affirmations and exercise before starting with any type of work.
How about you? What’s your morning routine?
He manages the operations at LeapFroggr as well as focuses on the creation of content for the LeapFroggr blog and it’s weekly newsletter. Next on the plate? Guest posts on great blogs like this one, if given the opportunity.
He is also involved in two startups currently and an offline importing business.
He plans to launch either a book or a podcast at the latter part of the year, if it’s feasible enough.
