I started Matt McWilliams Consulting in the summer of 2011 with a vision of helping companies across the country (and globe) do what I have done for the past ten-plus years:
Build intimate relationships with scale.
Since our humble beginnings (me working part-time on the side with one small business), we have grown to a small team helping businesses ranging from publicly-traded retail giants to thirty-person start-ups to part-time solopreneurs looking for a leg up in their marketing and customer relations.
Despite serving so many different-sized companies in numerous industries ranging from retail to education to financial services to B2B training, we are not for everyone. We are very picky about who we take on as a client. Our approach is very hands on, for us and for you. We’re going to get dirty…and so are you.
If you’re looking for guidance or growth in any of the following areas, contact us to set up an initial consultation:
- General online marketing
- Affiliate marketing and management
- Affinity marketing
- Facebook and LinkedIn marketing
- Email marketing
- Customer retention
- Improving customer experience
We bring my personal experience in online marketing spanning ten-plus years. Here is a short list of awards I’ve personally won or my companies have won over the years.
2010 Affiliate Manager of the Year – Affiliate Summit Pinnacle Awards
2009 Affiliate Manager of the Year – AbestWeb
2007 Best in Business Award, 25 or less employees – Nashville Business Journal
2013 Affiliate Manager of the Year Finalist – Affiliate Summit Pinnacle Awards
