Story
Tagline
Internet Business and Marketing Consultant, Associate Dean at DirectionsU, CEO of Brick Road Media and creator of C.A.S.T. for local business owners.
Introduction
#glassexplorer

Former full-time conservationist for several non-profits.  Highlights included spending lots of time in the wilderness teaching city slickers how to track mountain lions, black bears, and other assorted critters of the wild Southwest United States and Northern Mexico. 

For the last 15 years I've taught thousands of people from small business to Fortune 1000 companies how to get more traffic through search, link building, and blog marketing.

I've authored several ebooks over the years including Power Linking, the Authority Black Book, and my latest book, Bending The Web

I co-founded of Blog Success, one of the first blogger training centers on the web, was started in 2006-2007 and has taught over 8000 members how to build high-traffic, profitable blog-based sites.

These days I blog at JackHumphrey.com and Directions University, and I help local businesses get found on the web with my firm, Brick Road Media.  I'm also Associate Dean at Directions University.

How Can I Help YOU?

If you are looking for help gaining much more exposure for your site, whether you are a Fortune 500 or a part-time author, consultant, musician, coach, or affiliate marketer, you should contact me to find out what I can do for you.

It’s a given that we’d talk to +Matt Bacak about email marketing and other marketing tactics and insights.

What wasn’t expected in this interview is where we ended up in the second half of the show. The golden bombs Matt dropped in this interview are incredibly powerful.

Listen, hear his message, and apply it to your business and you’ll do really, REALLY well this year and beyond!   #trafficmasters   #mattbacak   #marketingpodcast

Do you go after every possible consumer of your products or services individually?  *Or do you go after the thought leaders who have the attention of large chunks of your market?*  One is way easier than the other!
Which is better? Getting targeted traffic by reaching your audience one at a time? Getting targeted traffic by the bushel by reaching thought leaders? Seem

That's just the best wildlife book in North America and lots of critters in it are pretty widespread.  "Wildlife of the Midwest" would, unfortunately, be a very short, thin book.

Good stuff right here...
 
Before judging another's words, actions, or decisions, first think about this: If you lived all that person's EXACT life experiences, from birth until this moment, you, too, would be doing, saying, and making decisions in the same way they are. That's powerful. Observation without judgement. A most freeing way to live!
