Will Hare joined the Hive Digital family in August 2016 as a Paid Search Analyst. He loves working in Paid Search because he enjoys the data-driven creativity behind it. Paid search allows for the freedom to exhibit creativity and find innovative solutions to problems while maintaining a solid foundation in empirical methods. Coming up with those outside-the-box solutions to problems is what drives Will.
Will finds himself with a passion for both equality and animal welfare. In the fight for equality, Will and his husband were among the first people in line to get married when Amendment 1 was struck down in North Carolina, and he has devoted energy to volunteering for Equality NC.
Will has two dogs and two cats of his own, and wants more, but doesn’t have enough space. Instead, he volunteers at animal shelters as both a form of stress relief and a way to give back to our four-legged friends. He also volunteers annually for the Extra Life gaming marathon to benefit Duke Children’s Hospital.
Will graduated from North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina with a degree in Communications and a minor in Film. During his time in college, he snagged an internship with a nonprofit working on social media campaigns and blogging. This is where he found he was able to merge his passion for creative marketing with the pragmatism of data-backed methods. Will is a unique soul in that he loves working in an Excel spreadsheet as much as he loves working in Photoshop.
Will is Bing Ads certified and has all six Google AdWords certifications (Fundamentals, Search, Display, Mobile, Video, Shopping).
When he’s not hard at work on Pay-Per- Click accounts, Will lets his nerd flag fly freely. He collects board games and spends a lot of time playing video games. He and his husband also like to take their canoe out fishing whenever time permits.
