Marc calls himself a CanAussie after moving to Australia from Canada in the late 70’s, and later becoming a dual citizen of both countries. Now living on the Gold Coast, Marc is passionate about his family, animal causes, the Brisbane Broncos and also refers to himself as a golfing tragic!
Marc is the Creator of Your Lead Engine, Managing Director of Marketing Tactics and has partnered with Web Traffic That Works to help our clients generate a wealth of leads that tell them – which of their products or services they want to buy, and when they want to buy them.
Marc does this by providing a Done-For-You Lead Generation solution that incorporates a proven formula that gathers the consumer intelligence needed to deliver quality leads with higher close rates. This lead acquisition and conversion formula was developed over the course of several in-market tests with clients in diverse industries such as Travel & Leisure and Fundraising.
The formula uses contests as the initial lead capture mechanism. This is because contests have consistently generated above average acquisition rates as well as high-quality leads (especially when coupled with Facebook advertising campaigns) that have consistently yielded close rates over 5 Times Higher than other lead sources.
With 34 yrs worldwide experience running marketing departments and having owned a call centre himself, Marc is well aware of the difficulties businesses face generating a consistent flow of high closing leads. He believes every business has the power to say goodbye to the stress of generating great leads on a regular basis, so they can stop struggling with out-of-date or worked-over lists, or throwing good money away on lead generation tactics that just don’t deliver.
Marc has also provided direct marketing and consulting services to a wide variety of businesses throughout Australia, Canada, Fiji, México, The Bahamas, United Kingdom and the United States, been published in marketing magazines and direct marketing handbooks and has been a guest speaker at industry conferences and seminars throughout the world.
