Jim Boykin is the founder and CEO of Internet Marketing Ninjas (formerly We Build Pages). Jim was born and raised in Upstate NY, where he has built a reputation as a leader in the SEO industry. Jim originally launched We Build Pages in 1999 as a one-man web design company. However, Jim's inherent knowledge of search engines led to IMN developing into one of the world's most well-known and trusted link building agencies. When Jim isn't in his office to 2:00AM, he loves spending time with his two sons and thoroughly enjoys going to concerts. Jim also proudly supports many local causes and gives back to the community through philanthropic endeavors.

Sean arrived at Internet Marketing Ninjas (then We Build Pages) in May of 2008, fresh off of three separate careers which included television listings, restaurant ownership and an interesting stint in the antiques business. For each business he helped establish, maintain and grow online presence, without even a lick of SEO knowledge or expertise. And he's kicking himself today, but just a little, for it was his curiosity about how to market one's self online that led him to Jim Boykin's door as the first decade of the 21st century came to an end.
He began his career at IMN as a linkbuilder, progressing through the ranks to become a link team leader, reporter/analyst, trainer and eventually Vice President of Client Services, a position he's held since October 2013. He works with a staff of dedicated account managers whom he claims make his job the most enjoyable he has ever held.
Paul's been a Safari Driver, Donut Maker, and Fireworks Coordinator, but his most enjoyable work has been as a Ninja. He joined Internet Marketing Ninjas in 2011, beginning his SEO journey as a link-builder, and has held roles as a mentor, trainer, and in internal support prior to joining the Client Services team. His role as Director of Accounts allows Paul the opportunity to work to his passion of providing world class service. His previous experience, working for the Walt Disney Company, fine-tuned the customer service skills that he applies to his work with each and every Ninja client. Paul works to build relationships that allow him and his clients to partner in employing the strategies developed by the Ninja team to grow the client's online presence. He now lives in Clifton Park, New York, with his wife, young son, and dachshund named Olive.
Sarah Russell is a true ninja of link building. Starting her career at Internet Marketing Ninjas in 2006, Sarah is one of the original employees of the company. Learning first hand from Jim Boykin himself, she has not only mastered this time consuming skill, but has passed on her knowledge to others. Over the years, Sarah has shared her methods of link building throughout numerous strategic training courses, presentations and conferences. Sarah's talent and drive has advanced her all throughout the company, lending her brain and skills to various departments and services. Whether she is managing her own team or playing a vital role in the training process, Sarah’s knowledge and enthusiasm has been the foundation of Internet Marketing Ninjas for nearly 10 years. Sarah’s hard work and dedication to IMN has allowed her to travel across the United States for SEO conferences, seminars and meetings.
Sarah grew up in Queensbury, NY and graduated with honors from the University of New Haven. With a focus on communication and music industry, she never imagined herself to be in the internet marketing industry, but couldn't be happier that she is. In her spare time, Sarah loves any reason to get dressed up and socialize, but is just as content to stay at home with her cat.
Adam is one of the lead analysts at Internet Marketing Ninjas, providing action items, reporting, consulting and always monitoring the traffic trends. In 2011 he was hired as an in-house writer for the Content Team, but after the teams were asked to provide some analysis, his nitpickiness was his nexus to a new position. His experience working for Upstate New York’s convenience store chain, Stewart’s, has prepared him for the plethora of personalities he consults on a daily basis, but he loves nothing more than digging into a new client’s website and finding the areas of opportunity. Adam lives in Ballston Lake with his wife-to-be, Andrea, and their Welsh corgi, Atlas.
