So you made it to our "About" page...

We appreciate that you found us interesting enough to say, “who are these guys, anyway?”

Although we think a lot of pages like this tend to be a bit self indulgent, we’d hate to break from ‘About Page’ tradition.

Client Amp was started by Amy Pearson & Dave Swift.

Amy Pearson, Founder

Amy understands pressure and deadlines with real consequences.

What kind of pressure? She was also an F-16 weapons loader in the Iraq War.

After returning to civilian life, Amy became a dental hygienist before she moved into a management position at a local business in St. Paul.

Between the pressures of war and the struggle of building a business that produces real results, Amy is accustomed to getting things done effectively and with a pride. Chances are, she'll do it with a smile on her face as well!

Dave Swift, Account Manager

Dave Swift understands entrepreneurs and pursuing your passion.

In college, Dave studied music at Berklee College of Music. Because musicians are always broke, Dave always had a side hustle. One of those turned into a real business, and in 2009 he started Swift Music, a Twin Cities music lesson business for children and hobbyists.

It was at Swift Music that Dave became obsessed with marketing. He learned on the job, and failure to rank on Google literally meant no new clients and not being able to pay rent that month.

...but is that what you’re REALLY looking for from an "About" page? 

Well… maybe, but what you’re probably wondering is should you hire Client Amp to help with marketing for your business?

For a lot of businesses, the answer is no, you shouldn’t.

What?! WHY?
Seriously, here is why…

Three reasons to close this page and never think of Client Amp again:

#1

You don’t believe in your business enough to invest in it.

Look — we know running a business is hard. We know every decision you make directly effects your bottom line.

But, let’s get real.  How is your business doing? Are you hitting your goals? What is stopping you?

If you’re not the kind of business owner that wants to set goals and work your tail off to smash them, we’re probably not a good fit.

#2

You want instant results (and you haven't started yet.)

If you’re here because you’re looking for instant results and you’re not willing to work hard, we won’t help you. We could, but we won’t.

We partner with clients who are ready to grow for the long term. When someone is looking for instant results, they’re telling us that they don’t like their work… the whole point of marketing is to get more clients, and that means more work. 

Are you ready to work hard? We are. 

#3

You’re looking for questionable marketing practices.

We don’t do anything that could be perceived as “scammy”.

We don’t setup marketing funnels that “trick” people into recurring subscriptions. We won’t sabotage your competitors with negative SEO tactics. We won’t spam people for you.

At the end of the day, we have to live with ourselves and we live by our own version of the golden rule — “Market to others as you would have others market to you.”

Still reading? Great!

Here is what you can expect from Client Amp:

  • An effective and thoughtful approach to get more customers for your business.
  • Reliable service.
  • Honesty.

Honesty, really? From marketers?

Look — It’s not in our best interest to sell you services if they won’t benefit your business. Sure, we’d get some money upfront, but when you don’t see results you’ll fire us. Then you’d probably leave bad reviews all over the internet. Eventually we’d have no credibility and no clients.

If we can’t actually help your business, we won’t provide you a service. End of story. 

Yeah, yeah, that sounds wholesome and all… but that’s totally what the scammers would say. How do I know you can actually help?

Well, the best thing you can do is schedule a consult and let us show you exactly what you need to do for your business. We’ll give you a plan, for free.

We’re not talking about some weasily cookie cutter plan we dole out to everyone.  We tear apart your website and your marketing and look for weakness, waste, and missed opportunities.

You tell us your goals and we give you a step by step plan to actually achieve them.

If you want, you can even take our advice and implement it yourself. It won’t cost you a dime.

This is what we really do.

All businesses need more customers.

If you used to have a steady stream of word of mouth customers, you’ve probably noticed it slowing down recently.

Instead of asking friends and family, people are searching online and looking at reviews… then buying right away.

If you don’t have a digital marketing strategy, you won’t show up in searches and you will have a hard time growing your business.

That’s what we do for you. We help you show up when your customers need you, then we help them connect with you so they can’t wait to buy your products or services.

To be more specific…

Some businesses have great websites, but don’t have anyone visiting them.

For those businesses, we can use paid advertising to get visitors to your website almost immediately.

A solid SEO plan lends credibility to your business and helps you show up in the search results for more diverse keywords.

SEO is important because customers are getting smarter. If your website doesn’t appear organically in search engines, that will raise red flags.

Some business are already getting a lot of traffic to their websites, but the site isn’t turning them into customers.

We create sites that guide visitors to take the action your business needs: phone calls, appointment bookings, or online sales.

What you really want to know is this stuff works.

Take the next step.

You’re likely great at what you do, but that’s not enough. You need to market to reach new customers.

Our team at Client Amp lives and breathes the latest conversion tactics, SEO strategies, and changes to the Adwords platform. If those “industry buzzwords” put you to sleep, just know they are all things that could drastically effect the ROI of your marketing campaign.
