About Us

If you’re here, you might be asking yourself — how do I get more customers?

Whether you’re a…

  1. Startup CEO
  2. Small business owner
  3. Or any sort of marketer…

…you probably want more leads. We had no idea how to get leads either. But over the past 10 years we’ve perfected it. How “perfected?” If you Google “growth marketing,” you’d find us. We’re usually in the top few results, depending on the day.

We’re Hailey and Mark.

  • We’ve started (6 and 7-figure revenue) companies
  • We’ve led marketing at (7, 8, and 9-figure revenue) companies
  • And we’ve grown Growth Marketing Pro into the biggest growth marketing blog on the internet — in just under 2 years. It makes us $60,000/month (and growing)… and we did it all for free.

How?

Have you ever heard someone say…

  • Facebook Ads are it! If you run Facebook Ads you’ll make money.”
  • Or… SEO is the answer to your problems. Make content and you’ll get paying customers!”
  • Webinars crush it for every business!”
  • Or… “Spend your marketing budget on affiliate marketing. That’s the only way to make money!”

The real truth is: THAT’S ALL BULLSHIT. Businesses aren’t one size fits all. And neither is marketing.

In an endless sea of marketing tactics, you have to prioritize what’s right for your business. You can’t focus on everything.

We get amazing results like no one else because we’ve figured out a formula for prioritization.

There are a few tactics for every business that move the needle. We know how to find them.

And we’ll share them with you.

How did we get here?

Let me take you back to the beginning.

I’m Mark. I’m originally from Connecticut. Through middle school and early high school I was a pretty well-adjusted kid. I went to public school, had a bunch of friends, played a ton of soccer, and got into a good university.

But during the second half of my senior year of high school things started to change. I lost interest in pretty much everything. One soccer game (with my mom in the stands), I threw my jersey at the coach, walked off the field, and quit the team. Around the same time, my grades started slipping. I failed 2 classes my senior year after getting a 4.0 each of the three years prior. My parents were understandably furious. My mom was afraid I’d lose my acceptance to school and I’d end up on her couch instead of getting an education.

Then, one day in Spanish class, I had my first panic attack.

Yup, there I was, 17 years old, unable to sit still–anxiety pulsing through my body as señora lectured about past participles or some shit. I started tearing up. I had no clue what was going on. I ran to my car and drove home.

It started happening more often. Instead of telling anyone what was going on, I bottled it all up and went off to school in Virginia (fortunately, they didn’t rescind my admission). I struggled through my freshman and sophomore year–drinking too much and skipping class.

Yup, I’m the idiot with the hat

Once the panic attacks began to happen daily, I finally got some help. Fortunately, I was put on medication and I began speaking to a therapist. It changed my life.

It was through the process of getting better, I learned the most important lesson I’ve ever learned: JUST DO IT. I know, I know, there’s a sneaker company that can claim credit for that mantra. But the day I decided to get help was the day my life changed forever.

You can complain, sit on the sidelines, or wonder, “what if?” Or you can take action.

So when my friend asked me to start an ecommerce company with him at age 23, I said yes.

Then after I exited that company, I took a job as Head of Marketing for a 70 person startup at age 27. It was scary as hell, but why not?

And that’s why I took a chance and hired a girl named Hailey on the spot after an hourlong Skype call.

So after two years of working together, when Hailey proposed we start a marketing blog, there was only one thing I could say….

My life has changed for the better as a result of taking action. I hope this site inspires you to do the same… or at least teaches you how to get a lot more customers.
