Originally from Wisconsin, I moved out to Salt Lake City over ten years ago on a six month software development contract. I now have over 15 years in software development, and was introduced to internet marketing back in 2003. During the wild west days, our business focused on content sites for Adsense revenue. As it became harder and harder to keep up with the search engines, our business has evolved, and forced us to focus on building lists and creating products. We now have a list of about 5000 interested in goal setting, and a small internet marketing list of about 500.
In August 2009, I helped my partners on a book launch project for Mark Victor Hansen and Robert G. Allen for their book, Cash In A Flash – Fast Money In Slow Times. We built the backend system for the book, managing a number of upsell products to build a new business based around the book and organizing the joint venture mailing to help make the book a bestseller both on the New York Times and Amazon.
In 2011, my primary focus is building membership sites with WordPress, Wishlist and Optimize Press theme, and helping local business get better results with local search and mobile marketing.
If you’re in Salt Lake, I speak once a month to members of my meetup.com group on various topics about marketing in my home.
