Learn the history of how our company started and Landscape Marketing Pros’ CEO Matt Wacek.
CEO & Founder of Landscape Marketing Pros Matt Wacek began his entrepreneurial journey began at the very young age of 11 by organizing BMX bike races & basketball tournaments with all the kids throughout his neighborhood. A few years later while working his first job at a small, locally-owned & operated lawn care company in Rogers, MN, he fell in love with the idea of being “the guy running the show” with a lawn/landscape company. After graduating high school in 2009 he attended the University of North Dakota for 1.5 years and hated every minute of it. He felt completely out of place and wanted to start his own business as soon as possible.
He then left UND to pursue Anoka Technical College’s Horticulture program while simultaneously starting his own landscaping business (MJW Landscape Contracting) in early 2011. He built up an initial client base pounding pavement for weeks on end distributing door-hangers. He 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 he decided to build MJW Landscape Contracting’s website from scratch (he was so excited about building the website that he posted about it on Instagram). In 2013, MJW Landscape Contracting grew exponentially and continued doing so every year and scaling to multiple 6-figures in the process thanks to creating their high-converting website that was ranked in the search engines for services in their service area – allowing MJW Landscape Contracting to pull in dozens of new clients each month essentially on autopilot. From then on, that was the only marketing method they used to acquire clients (aside from referrals).
Matt then decided to transition from MJW Landscape Contracting in early 2016 to pursue Landscape Marketing Pros, where we use the same strategies to expand our clients’ online presences allowing them to dominate their markets.
His role at Landscape Marketing Pros as CEO and Founder is directing the ship by overseeing operations, managing all client relations, sales and website development. Beyond Matt, our team is comprised of thoroughly-vetted contractors that fulfill the tasks for managing pay-per-click ads, text content creation and select search engine optimization tasks.
