About Emily Yetzer


Emily Yetzer - SEO & Digital Marketer in Chicago


Allow me to introduce myself

Emily M Yetzer

I am an SEO, digital marketer and web designer with a proven record of driving revenue gains and brand awareness through intelligent implementation of online marketing strategies.

My applied background is in web and database design and management, and I have spent the last 7 years in SEO and digital marketing. I studied Art History as an undergraduate at the University of Florida, and Data Science as a graduate at Harvard. Both lended themselves perfectly to digital marketing.

I currently work as Head of SEO at Spocket SEO. In my spare time, I still take pro bono non-profit marketing projects, helping them achieve much deserved online visibility by helping them with their internet marketing strategies. When I’m not working, I’m outside with my dogs, checking out an art event or at a sporting event.

  • Emily was my manager at Seer Interactive and I feel lucky enough to have worked with her. She was such a methodical and hard working manager and I learned an exceptional amount of information working with her. The way she handled client relationships was something I truly admired, for many different reasons. She always made the best of any situation and never gave up on pushing out the best deliverables for her clients. Any company would be lucky to have such a great employee working for them because I know that's how we felt.- HILARY FELDMAN, SENIOR MARKETING COORDINATOR AT ITAN FRANCHISING, INC. (MARCH 16, 2015)
  • Emily approaches projects strategically, being able to understand client goals and how to achieve them. She's able to defuse difficult situations with data and reason. Always welcoming interruption, she's driven by her natural curiosity and determination to solve client issues, making her a great person to have on your team. If you're reading this recommendation and considering hiring her, do it. - Adam Melson, Team Lead at Seer Interactive (April 22, 2015)
  • Emily is a great asset and does many things well as seen by her many other recommendations. Perhaps what I most admire about Emily is her ability to understand a challenge and then develop and articulate a comprehensive solution. While working with Emily I have seen her create and implement digital strategy for several large brands that operate in very competitive marketplaces. Equally impressive to Emily’s client skills is her ability to work with coworkers. Her leadership in the office has helped consistently rally her team and tackle even the most difficult challenges. In addition to her leadership skills, she is also a masterful trainer. I greatly appreciated Emily’s ability to tailor trainings for the audience, breakdown difficult concepts and provide first-hand examples. Thank you Emily for all that leadership and the many things that you have taught me. - Ryan Smedstad, SEO Leader at iProspect (January 26, 2016)
  • Emily was such a joy to work with! She has the unique capability to bring out the best in all those around her, and challenge her coworkers to reach their full potential. Emily has the incredible knack of getting along with all those around her, and motivating them to work together on a common goal. Emily's approach to SEO and digital marketing is detailed, creative and holistic, and perfect for any organization looking to boost their over all presence. She is a data driven person, and helps use data to back her thought process. When I first began working with Emily, I was constantly seeking her out for input, advice and direction that I wasn't receiving with how the department was structured when we began working together. She ended up being such an asset to the team that I requested to report directly to her. After the department was restructured, I had the pleasure of reporting directly to Emily for only a few months, but was able to expand my knowledge drastically in that short time period. Her mentoring helped me to secure a job offer that I am in love with! Emily is a true leader, and is the coworker/boss you dream to come across at least once in your career! - Tori Traver, SEO Analyst at Cramer-Krasselt (March 2, 2016)
  • Emily is a highly driven and professional SEO and digital marketing leader. I've worked under her guidance and leadership at iProspect as an SEO specialist and she has been a key factor to our team's success. Emily's ability to juggle multiple tasks and clients at the same time, and develop actionable digital marketing strategy is second to none. I have gained invaluable experience working with her and developing my client management skills. She was always invested in her team's professional growth and personal success. I highly recommend Emily to any organization seeking a true leader in digital strategy and content marketing.- Alex Sazonov, Digital Marketing Manager at CountBOX (April 4, 2016)
  • Emily is one of those people who is hyper strategic and super kind, making her a great combination for any company. I really enjoyed the time we worked together at Seer and she definitely was strong on client communications, and in helping her team members to level up / feel supported. I didn't get to work with her as long as I would have liked, but based on what i saw I wouldn't ever hesitate to work with her again.- Wil Reynolds, Founder and Director of Digital Strategy at Seer (January 9, 2017)
