Suds & Search 141 | Dan Mondello, Co-Founder and CEO of Rank Really High


Also available as a Podcast:

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.

Suds and Search 102 | Zeph Snapp, CEO and Founder of Altura Interactive

My guest on this week’s episode of Suds & Search is Zeph Snapp, CEO and Founder at Altura Interactive.

Zeph is a veteran digital marketer and an in-demand conference presenter. A few places you might’ve heard him speak include MozCon, Content Marketing World, and Pubcon.

He’s also an excellent writer. If you like this interview check out Zeph’s column at Search Engine Journal.

Altura offers a really interesting service. They provide Spanish digital marketing to international brands. Usually, these brands are growing from the United States into Latin America and need digital marketing expertise along the way.

I can tell you from experience that it’s hard enough to know SEO in one language. Zeph’s agency has a bigger burden. They have to be good at SEO, which is interesting enough, but they also have to overcome communication challenges with stakeholders speaking different languages, they have to be mindful of a zillion little regional language nuances when creating and optimizing content, and there are SEO implications with each decision that they make.

It’s a fascinating topic and Zeph is an entertaining and engaging guest to take us through it all.

Grab something cold to drink and join me for a conversation with Zeph Snapp. We’ll talk about how to avoid disaster when launching a website internationally, he’ll explain the difference between translation and transcreation, and we’ll spend a little time talking about MozCon shenanigans.
