The fast-growing marketing firm Wpromote is not Michael Mothner’s (today’s live chat host -- RSVP or watch here) first rodeo.
Michael, a serial entrepreneur, didn’t waste any time taking advantage of the ability to start a business online -- he founded his very first software company at just 14 years old.
A few years later, in 2001, he founded Wpromote out of his dorm room at Dartmouth. And he’s been on an incredible trajectory ever since.
Today, Wpromote is one of the fastest growing and most widely recognized online marketing firms in the U.S., running SEO, PPC and social media for companies all over the world (clients include Wine.com, TOMS and Toyota).
Wpromote is a six-time Inc. 500|5000 company (a list that recognizes the fastest growing private companies in the U.S.), and Michael was featured by Inc Magazine as one of “30 CEOs under 30 To Watch.” He was also the recipient of the PriceWaterhouseCoopers Entrepreneurial Spirit Award.
But Michael doesn’t just help his company and clients succeed -- he’s a gifted writer and thought leader in his own right, who regularly shares insider marketing advice through speaking gigs, quotes and articles for the likes of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and BusinessWeek.
His Inc. column, “On Site,” is a treasure chest of excellent marketing advice. He covers everything from how to master social media marketing to the 6 email marketing myths that are holding you back. (On the latter topic, one great example is that his company sends the same email twice to people who don’t open the first one, doubling their results with email marketing. Sounds like a no-no, but those are some powerful results.)
In spite all this, Michael’s very down to earth -- definitely someone you might want to hang out with outside of work, too (assuming you don’t mind him screaming at the Lakers games on TV!).
So whether you’ve got a technical question about maximizing your PPC ad spending, or just want to learn more about the mistakes you’re making on your website RIGHT NOW, Michael probably has a great answer for you.
And since online marketing is vital to EVERY business right now, this is one live chat you do NOT want to miss.
Join us TODAY (April 11th) at 3 p.m. EST for an hour-long #StartupLab live chat with Michael, presented by Citi.
