WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

What You Can Expect The Source Approach

You work 1 on 1 personally with me and not a random agent in a call center with little to no experience.  

As a fellow business owner, I have significant experience managing projects, people & budgets to get results.

My experience comes from owning, partnering & running businesses, not working as an employee at an agency. 

When you reach out, you’re speaking with me, not a sales agent who earns a commission or a random customer service rep.

FAQ

What is “the Source Approach?”

  • The Source Approach is a method or “approach” that I’ve developed over a decade to source the most efficient & effective strategy to:
    • Get Traffic
    • Convert Sales

How Many Projects Do You Work On At A Time?

  • I only take on 10 – 15 projects at a time depending on their complexity and if we’re a good fit for each other.  I want to make sure I am able to contribute in a meaningful way that adds value and also that the project has the resources necessary to be successful.

Why is Price Not Listed?

  • No two projects are the same.  There are single product companies and there are multiple thousand SKU companies.  There are highly competitive industries and there are industries where you are the only player in the space.  I give you above & beyond service that is tailored to YOU, to meet & exceed YOUR goals.

  • I accept:
    • Credit Cards (Amex, Visa, Mastercard, Discovery)
    • PayPal
    • Check
