Matt Jones, COO
Matt spent 20 years in sales in everything from Financial Advising to Business Brokering before focusing his attention towards online marketing. While doing due diligence analyzing hundreds of companies, he would have had to be an idiot not to recognize the pattern that businesses with successful online marketing grew the fastest and had the most effective management systems.
Matt has successfully created and managed marketing campaigns for $200MM companies down to mom-and-pop startups ranging in monthly spend from $500 to $100,000. His core focus is ecommerce, specializing in conversion optimization from initial impression to final conversion as well as effective CPA (Cost per Action/Acquisition) which, ironically, was a method developed by Scott Averbach back in 2000.
