Who Are We?
Boil a company down and isn’t it nothing more than a group of people? That is exactly who Maple North is – a group of wicked cool people who are dang good at what they do. Here is a little more about our team!
Adam Green – President
Adam’s start in the world of internet marketing is a funny story. As a favor to a friend who was working a recruiting contract, he went for an interview for a Google Pay-Per-Click manager. Not knowing a thing about Google PPC, Adam attended the interview as a favor and found himself interested in what this relatively new area of marketing had to offer. When Adam returned home, he found the Google certification training materials online, wrote the test and passed. Two days later, in a follow-up interview, Adam was hired.
After working at two agencies, Adam started Maple North as a full service internet marketing agency. Since its inception, Maple North has had the pleasure of working with some amazing clients in industries ranging from food services, to class action lawyers to inventory management systems.
Adam’s expertise includes:
- PPC Management
- Search Engine Optimization
- Google Analytics Implementation
- Web Testing and Conversion Optimization
John Rampton – Internet Marketing Specialist
John’s background includes some incredible affiliate marketing successes as well as experience in Google PPC management, search engine optimization, blogging, and social media management.
