What People are Saying:

Oliver is a true subject matter expert in all things SEO and SEM. I was fortunate to be able to work with Oli over several years at WP Engine and I learned so much from him during that time. I saw first hand how strategic website optimizations influence SEO growth and saw our organic traffic numbers triple over the course of his tenure. Oli is a team player and his positive attitude is contagious. I’d recommend him in a heart beat!

Angela Hawkins

Director, Digital Marketing @ WP Engine

Stop what you’re doing and go talk to Oliver for your growth marketing needs. Oli is an incredibly smart, forward-thinking, innovative, and funny growth marketing strategist. I had the pleasure to work with Oli on the Shiftkey growth marketing team, and he always came with ideas and insights, utilizing data to make thoughtful decisions on acquisition marketing, creative collateral, and marketing functions as a whole. Oli is great at balancing and allocating marketing spend, as well as crafting long-term, successful vendor relationships. He also has a great understanding of project management, which is hard to come by in many marketing strategists. I would work with him again in a second.

Oliver helped us manage our email list of over 80k leads, set up our weekly marketing sequences, and provided us with expert guidance on every aspect of our list, from content recommendations to resolving technical issues. He’s highly knowledgeable and a fun person to be around, so I look forward to working with him again on future projects.

Projects

ATX.Live

ATX Live was created to help solve two key problems.  

First, there are hundreds of events happening every month in the Austin technology scene, how could we make this less overwhelming?

Second, businesses, startups, and people are trying to build communities and events to help support the Austin tech scene, but had trouble being found.

ATX Live creates a curated weekly list of in person events around Austin, as well as a full event calendar that anyone can self submit to.  We worked with Austin Startups and Austin Digital Jobs to help drive awareness to these events, helping solve both issues in one seamless environment.

Austin Virtual Workers owned by Oliver Whitham

Austin Virtual Workers

Austin Virtual Workers grew out of a simple idea. Not all co-working has to be in dedicated spaces. it doesn’t need to be expensive, and remote working doesn’t need to be at home, or isolated.

We created Austin Virtual Workers with a simple vision, creating a safe and accessible environment for remote workers to meet up with the intention of working, at coffee shops around the City of Austin.

Now sitting at 2000 members strong, Austin Virtual Working remains one of the largest co-working communities in Austin, and although currently on pause (Due to Covid) will be restarting when it’s safe for our community to return!
