Mr. Marketing started as a side-business for Founder Matthew Rubin. After working agency-side as a SEO Consultant for years Matt was hungry to make a name for himself. He saw an opportunity with Local SEO. While the big corporations were moving their SEO efforts in-house, thousands of small businesses were searching for help. Matt started the business out of a spare bedroom and began working with companies in Georgia and South Carolina, this was in addition to his full-time job, mostly doing the clients’ work on nights and Weekends. At the time it was founded the business was called Matthew B. Rubin Marketing Services, LLC, a name that to be honest never really caught on.
Mr. Marketing went through extreme growth in 2012 and 2013, and as the client list and fee volume increased so did the Mr. Marketing team. Google also went through big changes with Panda, Penguin, Hummingbird, Voice Search, the Knowledge Graph, and more recently with Pigeon, Mobilegeddon, and Rankbrain. As Google’s technology increased so did the market’s need for more sophisticated websites and web applications.
