Bradley BatdorfOwner GingerHippo
Entering the world of SEO in 2011, I didn’t know what SEO was. I was tasked with getting my employer back in the good graces of Google, after they were penalized as part of Panda/Penguin. After working them out of penalty, I started an agency to help other companies do the same. I started as just a guy with a plan to commit my services to other companies. Over time, I started hiring people to fill positions that required skills I didn’t have, such as graphic design, and added specialty positions to free up my time to do what I love. My passion has always been the world of SEO, and the puzzles that present themselves.
I am a working owner. While I have employees to manage their specific skill and industry expertise, I’ve grown GingerHippo to revolve around offering SEO services first, with all other services being offered as peripherals of our SEO strategy. We have a group of 26 employees, and GingerHippo operates as an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our employees maintain a 10% shared ownership in our company, and we donate 5% quarterly to children centered charities, divided equally, in each employee’s name. My professional nickname is Rain Man, given to me in 2012 by a client. The nickname is derived from being ultra task-oriented, without allowing the opportunity for outside interruption or influence. I have 3 personal loves in life, in a very specific order. They are my son, my dog, and my beard.

Chad Michael LawsonOwner; Snappy SEO Tools
Some blame it on an accidental overdose of gamma radiation. Others say it was a bite from a musically gifted spider. Or maybe it was just something in the cafeteria food. How else does one explain Chad Lawson’s transformation in a few short years from Purdue computer engineering major with no musical background, to composer/performer/conductor/songwriter with two invitations to perform with a choir at Carnegie Hall under his belt who then ditched it all and became an internet marketer & web app developer specializing in blowing up businesses?
In terms on internet marketing, 1998 was the ‘wild west’ years. Chad spent time cutting his teeth starting and running a web development company, navigating the technicalities of code slinging for efficiency, designing on a dime & experimenting with client’s online businesses’ for higher profitability.
After several years of designing & developing sites for Phoenix area clients, Chad’s curiosity klonked him on the head when he asked himself, “Why do some of my clients do well online and some go into the graveyard?” In a unique position to see inside of many businesses AND know their site inside and out, the question would reveal itself over the coming decade. The voyage of learning design for profitability and usability that results in paychecks began. Taking several years each(yes, really) to bone up on testing, copywriting, conversion design, & persuasion(NLP), Chad has filled out his tool built with everything necessary to build a house of conversion. Who is this guy?

He’s got a unique talent for reading where the ball is going to be and creating in that direction to profitable results for the businesses he works on.

So I started The Ranking Store, LLC with my partner Gary Affron over three years ago. Since then we have branded the “Factory” SEO tools. We now have over 25 products in the ranking and SEO space with over 1500 members that own or use our tools for their success.
