About Us

Our Story

We used to struggle to write really good content for our agency clients.

Then after hearing them speak passionately, I decided to record interviews with them and use that to produce content.

That’s when we started winning awards and having much more consistent results.

We also have several stories of clients selling their business because of how many SEO leads they got using our proven formula.

And for you, the marketer, service provider or business owner, it can be as easy as talking.

That is why we created the Talk Marketing Academy coaching program.

For many businesses, hiring an SEO firm or Content Marketing agency doesn’t make sense. The budget is blown quickly and the content isn’t always high level.

If you take our advice, the sky is the limit on what results you can achieve.

Our Mission

I love teaching the latest cutting-edge, conversion-led, digital marketing strategies and I get a thrill when a business owner achieves a major breakthrough because of one of my insights.

Now my mission is to give back and help others open the floodgates to more wealth, prosperity and freedom.

  • We wrote and designed a 500-page law firm website that generated $15,000,000 in revenue.
  • We have built over 200 websites since 1995, but we’re even more well known for making websites #1 in Google and massively increasing sales.
  • We have been flown to Google headquarters four times for our paid search expertise, but it’s conversion rate optimization that helps us turn Google ads from an expense to a profit center.
