About Me

Hi, I am Barrie Smith

I’m one of the best PPCs in the UK and I’m proud to say it. I’ve been in the industry since 2004. I’ve been here since Google Ads (then AdWords) was in its early stages and I’ve been through all the changes since. I’ve seen lots of different strategies come and go and over the years.

The first 14 years of my career were spent at marketing agencies, managing large clients, training staff and winning awards, before becoming a Freelance PPC Expert in 2018.

I now have 18 years’ experience in delivering profitable Google Ads, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Amazon, Bing & LinkedIn campaigns.

This includes experience in a wide range of sectors, including the competitive gaming, travel and finance industries. I have a strong working knowledge of tools and am on top of the latest methods and strategies to use as part of a successful campaign.

Budgets have varied over the years, from working with your one man band, to blue chip companies and international brands spending 7 figures a year on paid media.

PPC Expert, Veteran

Barrie Smith is a highly-experienced freelance PPC expert with over 18 years’ experience. Having built his first Google AdWords campaign from his bedroom in the early 2000s, Barrie took his first job in the industry in 2004. At this time the marketplace was very different, with YouTube and Facebook not even existing at this time.

Barrie’s first PPC role was working at a small digital marketing agency based in Flitwick, Bedfordshire.

Prior to going freelance in 2018, Barrie played a leading role in a number of PPC campaign awards won for agencies.

Barrie Smith’s extensive portfolio includes including the competitive gaming, travel and finance industries, to one man bands and blue chip companies. He has worked with the likes of Betfair, Selfridges and WhatHouse.

Results-Driven PPC

My goal after leaving school was to work in marketing. I have worked in online marketing ever since.

I was pivotal in expanding the team at agencies I have worked for prior to building a personal brand.

95%+ of the PPC campaigns I have worked on have been a success. That’s Google, Facebook, LinkedIn etc. combined.

I’ve worked with small budgets to 7-figure annual marketing budgets. Making both profitable all the same.
