When I got into SEO and marketing online I was running Big Sky Party Rentals, an inflatable rental company I started with my brother-in-law.
I worked with Big Sky’s website and took it to the top of Google’s ranking for hundreds of keywords. When I saw the triple digit growth that resulted, I was so excited I practically begged a friend of mine to let me help him with his rankings and traffic. He also saw great results, and I decided to sell my stake in the party rental business and jump into SEO and marketing head first. That was in 2011 and today I feel so blessed. This industry is incredibly dynamic and I am constantly learning new things. I have met amazing people, given over a dozen presentations to large gatherings of a hundred or more, and work with AMAZING clients who I like and respect and who I LOVE producing results for.
I truly feel like the last 22 years of entrepreneurship and starting four companies from scratch has all been to prepare me for what I do today. My second startup was Sky Vending which I named after my oldest son, Skyler. Then came Big Sky Party Rentals (Skyler again). So when SEO came along I thought it would be clever to name it SAW Web Marketing after my three boys Skyler, Aiden and Will.
Maybe it was clever at the time, but is wasn’t very wise. SAW doesn’t “click” with the industry I work in. There is no obvious, or even related, connection to marketing online. After a lot of deliberation, I decided to change SAW Web Marketing to simply Matthew Rupp Consulting. It makes a lot more sense to build a brand around my name than an impersonal business name, especially since I am the face of the business and my client’s primary point of contact.
I would love to know what you think of the change or the new site we have been working hard on!
2017 is going to be an awesome year!
