In progress!

VR, a leading email & social media marketing tool for SMBs,  needed to jazz up their marketing & sales, particularly new customer acquisition. So, we started with an audit of all online marketing channels, then optimized starting with the biggest drivers, PPC and Online Display. Then, using Optimizely we performed several MVT tests to arrive at the best converting landing pages, along with Marketo to nurture these qualified leads to a sale. As part of this project we are involved in a complete rebranding of VR to a more modern, clean style. Fun!

John Hingley

I like to roll up my sleeves and get down to business. I'm a hands-on online marketing and sales operator, have been in the trenches and held exec positions at big 'ol public companies (The Learning Company, Mattel) as well as several early stage & start-ups (T/Maker,, Yaga, VerticalResponse, Andiamo Systems). After starting up and selling my last tech company a few years ago, I decided to spend my time  helping fun, exciting people & their companies do better. I like a challenge, so bring it on!
