About

Hello,

Thanks for checking out my blog. My name is Dale Shadbegian – I’m a web designer and local search expert with 118GROUP. I enjoy web design, blogging, reading, and online marketing.

How did I get started online?
In June of 1999, I completed a Bachelor of Science Program in Computer Information Systems (CIS) from Fitchburg State College. The CIS Program focuses on Marketing, Business Management, Business Systems Analysis, Database Design, and Computer Programming. While attending Fitchburg State College, I volunteered and led several student projects assisting local companies including the Chamber of Commerce, and Community Development Corporation (CDC).

Since 1999, I have worked for and consulted to several large corporations and small businesses. I worked in the Corporate World as an Employee of EMC Corp with 5 Service Awards accepted. At EMC, I learned a variety of Marketing, Management, and leadership skills.

My Specialties Include: Attractive Web Design, Responsive Web Design (and Mobile Web Design), Local Search, Social Media, Web Development, Marketing, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Project Management, New Ideas, Cost and Profit Management for Small Business, and of course… Chaos Control.
