My name is Rob Barbour and I’m glad you found me!
Prior to working for myself I traveled the world (54+ countries in 5 years) doing security related work for the government, designed and repaired large Banyan networks (Banyan engineer), and worked as a consultant at several Microsoft focused companies.
My first break working for myself came around 2000 when I got a consulting job writing code for Apple & Eve (a big juice company in NY). I continued providing services for them until late 2005, but it was an amazing experience.
I’ve been doing online marketing since 2005 and I always look forward to working with new clients when it comes to marketing, domains, WordPress, and even some coding.
When you use my services we’ll work together to reach your business goals by generating leads, running ad campaigns, optimizing your sites, WordPress (almost anything), improving conversions (sales, leads, etc..,) and much more.
Domain names also play a big role in my business and I got started in the very late 90’s, but didn’t really delve into them heavily until around 2004 or so. I currently own around 9,000 domains – approximately 100 have live sites and most of the other domains are available for sale.
I can help you with domains whether you’re looking to buy (for business or investment) or sell a domain. I helped Noah Kagan acquire Sumo.com for $1.5MM and many other clients acquire domains valued at $50,000+ each over the years.
Please Contact Me today to get started and see if we’re a good fit for each other.
My Areas Of Expertise
I’m a recognized expert and public speaker in many areas – Domains, Lead Generation, Online Marketing, Product Creation, and WordPress. Contact Me when you need help with your corporate domain strategy, lead generation, online marketing efforts, website optimization, or anything related to WordPress. My rates vary based on the project, but when you need a proven expert I’m the person for you.
Code – I started writing code around 1980 (BASIC) and still like to get my hands dirty, but these days it’s mainly WordPress related PHP and MySQL coding for my own use. I contributed so much code at WPMUDev that they gave me a free lifetime premium account and you can see my posts here: http://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/profile/digitsoft
Domains – I currently own around 9,000 domains, run approximately 100 live websites, and also broker domains for sellers and buyers. I’ve sold over $1,000,000 of my personal domains over the years and my live sites continue to earn revenue for me daily. Click HERE to see my course Domain Dough (opens in a new tab)
I also have a domain store with only my domains for sale: https://DomainVIP.com
E-Commerce – I use WooCommerce (a WordPress plugin) for most of my e-commerce needs, but also use other non-WordPress solutions such as Shopify. The solution I use depends on the requirements of the site and products. I used WooCommerce for my domain store listed above and it’s been heavily customized by me.
Lead Generation – There’s an art to generating leads and it’s one that I’ve mastered over many years. I can get the leads you want whether you’re in Real Estate, a Chiropractor, a Dentist, or any other profession that requires leads. Contact Me Today
Linux – I run all of my sites on LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP) and am well-versed with building a server from scratch. I’ve been using Linux since the early days when you had to go to computer events to get a set of CDs to install it. I primarily use CentOS for all my servers and am equally at home in a shell as I am in cPanel/WHM.
Online Marketing – I’ve been doing online marketing since 2005 or so, have been a speaker at internet marketing events, have been interviewed by people such as Yanik Silver & Ryan Lee, and regularly use a variety of methods (PPC, PPV, Social, and more) for getting traffic to my sites and products, and clients.
Product Creation – I’ve created many digital and software products that are sold and delivered online. If you have an idea for a product or are an expert in an area, but aren’t sure how to create, market, and sell your product online – just Contact Me
WordPress – I started using WordPress around 2005 and was instantly hooked. Since then I’ve become a recognized expert in this area – I’ve presented on the subject, created products, written WordPress Plugins, solved a variety of problems in public forums, and use it as the framework on almost all of my sites. Whether the site is for affiliate offers, eCommerce, local business, corporate presence, personal, etc.., – I almost always use WordPress.
