Learn the history of our company and founder Matt Wacek.
My name is Matt Wacek and I am the CEO of Landscape Marketing Pros. My entrepreneurial journey began at the very young age of 11 by organizing BMX bike races & basketball tournaments with all the kids throughout my neighborhood. A few years later while working my first job at a lawn care company, I fell in love with the idea of being “the guy running the show” with a lawn/landscape company. After graduating high school in 2009 I attended the University of North Dakota for 1.5 years and hated every minute of it. I felt completely out of place and wanted to start my own business as soon as possible.
I then left UND to pursue Anoka Technical College’s Horticulture program while simultaneously starting my own landscaping business, MJW Landscape Contracting in early 2011. I built up a client base and continued growing the business while going to school full-time until graduating in 2013, and then took the business by storm.
We began expanding exponentially every year and scaling to multiple 6-figures thanks to creating a high converting website and ranking it in the search engines for services in our service area – allowing us to pull in dozens of new clients each month essentially on autopilot.
I then decided to sell MJW Landscape Contracting in early 2016 to pursue my digital marketing company, where we use the same strategies to acquire marketing services clients and expand clients’ online presence to dominate their markets.
My role at Landscape Marketing Pros as CEO and Founder is directing the ship by keeping us on track with managing all client relations, sales and website development. I have a team of 4 thoroughly-vetted contractors that fulfill the work for pay-per-click ads, text content creation and select search engine optimization tasks.
I am your point of contact and my goal is to ensure we have a long list of happy and prosperous clients!
When I’m not working on Landscape Marketing Pros, or my digital marketing education business, you’ll find me racing motocross, at the gym doing intense workouts, and restorative yoga to recover from the racing and workouts.
