Robert Stoubos – Meet the Team

Welcoming the director of Odyssey New Media, below are some of the questions that will help you in getting to know Rob and his outlook on digital marketing.

What Got You into Digital Marketing?

“I originally studied a degree in Computer Science so my background wasn’t in marketing, however my very first job offer was as an SEO executive for a small web development agency in Birmingham City Centre; I was fortunate enough to be employed the next week after I’d graduated.  I quickly became fascinated with digital marketing and in particular Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). I loved how websites could be optimised both onsite and offsite to get them to rank higher for target search terms within the search engine ranking positions. Over the last 16 years, I’ve continued to learn and develop more knowledge and experience in order to become a cross-channel marketer with experience across most major channels of Digital Marketing.

What Motivates You on a Day-to-Day Basis?

“In more recent years, I am motivated by the challenge of running and growing Odyssey New Media whilst maintaining the very best service we can for our customers. Our customer’s success equals our success so it’s important not to get complacent and to stay self-motivated and disciplined. I also still enjoy getting involved in project strategy, planning, reporting and doing hands-on work alongside the rest of the team in order to help our clients get amazing results.”

Do You Prefer Working in the Office or From Home, Why?

“Personally, I prefer working in the office. I find it a lot better to have a home-work divide as well as it helping me stay focused mentally.  I also enjoy physically travelling to work and seeing the rest of the team members.  I found working at home during lockdown 2020 to be very monotonous and gave me a sense of cabin fever – hopefully, we never have to do that again!”

Where Do You See Odyssey in The Next 5 Years?

“Our reputation in Birmingham and the Midlands has grown, over the next 5 years we aim to make the agency every more well known throughout the UK. We are also aiming to grow our client base sensibly and to make the agency more attractive to outside investors. Another ambition is to purchase our own premises which we can call our own and for it to feel like home.”

What are your Interests and Hobbies Outside of Work?

“Outside of work I have several passions and hobbies which include music, watching films, exercising, reading and travelling. On the music side, I’m also a self-taught acoustic and electric guitar player; I enjoy playing hard rock music mostly such as Guns N Roses, Bon Jovi, Led Zeppelin and so on. Travel wise my last major trip was back in December 2019 when I went to Iceland which was an amazing place, especially given it had snowed so it was very picturesque and the people were all really friendly and spoke English which was a bonus! I’m hoping to travel more again next year when hopefully the quarantine restrictions have been lifted; destinations I’d love to visit include the US, Australia and Japan.”
