Our guest on this week’s episode of Suds & Search is Dan Mondello, co-founder and CEO of Rank Really High.

Dan is a serial entrepreneur who co-founded two companies – DealerTeamwork and Home and Local Services – before launching his newest project.

You’ve probably heard the cliche that there are riches in niches. Dan has spent his career deeply understanding the unique needs of specific verticals. He started out working in automotive, then started businesses aimed at home service professionals. Now, Dan is working with cannabis dispensaries.

A few years ago, Dan noticed that cannabis and marijuana-related products were being legalized in numerous states. He secured the domain name rankreallyhigh.com, but it was just an idea for a few years until Dan took the leap and started the agency. Today, Rank Really High offers e-commerce web development and a suite of digital marketing services tailored to the unique needs of cannabis dispensaries.

How has Dan been able to shift from automotive to home services to cannabis?

How does his agency approach the myriad of compliance requirements for advertising cannabis products?

How much do his clients know and understand SEO and PPC?

We’re going to ask Dan these questions and many more.

Grab something cold to drink and join us for a conversation with Dan Mondello. We’ll talk about why he’s chosen to make websites on WordPress, we’ll spend some time talking about the cannabis industry and conference scene, and we’ll finish our conversation discussing whether he’s benefited from first mover principals.
