Learn the history of our company and Landscape Marketing Pros’ CEO 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 small, locally-owned & operated lawn care company in Rogers, MN, 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 an initial client base pounding pavement for weeks on end distributing door-hangers. I continued growing the business while going to school full-time until graduating in 2013, and then took the business by storm.
In late 2012, after experiencing terrible returns on 1000s upon 1000s of door-hangers I decided to build my company’s website from scratch (I was so excited about building my website that I posted about it on my Instagram). In 2013, we grew exponentially and continued doing so every year and scaling to multiple 6-figures thanks to creating my high-converting website that was ranked in the search engines for services in our service area – allowing us to pull in dozens of new clients each month essentially on autopilot. That was the only method we needed to used aside from referrals.
I then decided to transition from 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 that continue working with us for years to come!
When I’m not working on Landscape Marketing Pros, you’ll find me racing motocross, at the gym doing intense workouts, and restorative yoga to recover from the racing and workouts.
