Meet the NTEN Community

The NTEN Community is full of great folks. Here are just a few of them.

Eric Werner

Northridge Interactive

Eric is an interactive marketing consultant at Northridge Interactive, specializing in Web Analytics, Organic Search Engine Optimization, and Pay-Per-Click Management. His interest in online marketing was sparked in 2001 while working for an Atlanta area web marketing firm where he learned the benefits of marketing to achieve concrete results. A results-driven Google Certified AdWords Professional, Eric has engaged in Adwords and Google Grants Management for a number of nonprofit clients while at Northridge Interactive. Eric contributes regularly to the Online Marketing Council and was recently elected to the position of Vice Chair of the Web Analytics committee. Eric began his career as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army -- but now the color of his parachute is "marketing". Eric is getting married this spring and hopes his wife will embrace his eclectic loves of practicing Wing Chun Kung Fu, wearing out his copy of Halo 3, and heavily consuming internet marketing reads. He hopes the salsa dancing will help in this regard.
