Hi! I'm Johnny, the founder and writer of Events INSIDER, the most popular events blog in New England.
Need a website? I'm an MIT alumnus best known as the founder and first CEO of Turbine, a videogames company that was bought by Warner Brothers for $160M. Now among other things including a second startup company I create websites and help companies reach out through search engine optimization and online marketing, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and more.
I don't just build websites. With my MIT MBA and consulting experience, I can help you find your business message, write focused and compelling text, and drive new users to action. Online marketing is a way to reach not just those ready to buy, but those who aren't ready yet, or can't, but like what you do. Engage these people. They are your fan club. They are your references. Online marketing is so much more than advertising. It is giving incentives and making it fun for people to spread word of mouth. It's by far the most inexpensive way to get your message heard.

The Ledge, the official movie website for the Hollywood film starring Liv Tyler (The Lord of the Rings), Tony, Emmy, and Golden Globe nominee Patrick Wilson (Watchmen, and Oscar nominee Terrence Howard (Crash, Iron Man), and Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy).
Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other outreach including press releases and direct appeals to the film's community. Director Matthew Chapman told me that I'd given the film more publicity, on my own with a shoestring budget, than IFC Film's entire PR campaign.
Yume Studio, a simple pottery website
The Monster March, a charity walk and carnival website to help prevent suicide,
Mattapan Pizza, a restaurant website including an entire online menu ordering system,
Band websites for Lifted and Pink Voyd,
Events INSIDER, the most popular events blog in New England. This project had an emphasis on social media outreach and search engine optimization, with automated Twitter and Facebook feeds and weekly giveaways. Just google 'Boston events' to find it just below The Boston Globe and The City of Boston.
Wheel Questions, a community art project where more than 10,000 handwritten questions about live get answers,
A-Cal Copiers, who repair office machines. This project had an emphasis on search engine optimization, too.
As a successful entrepreneur, I've written nearly 20 business plans in my life and advised companies from rank startups all the way up to top executives of Citigroup and General Electric. I also run Hard Data Factory, which collects sales leads and other data such as event listings from thousands of public websites into a central database.
