How we became Lead Marvel(ous)
1st Startup - 1997
Jeff (our CEO) meets Jon (our CTO) at an Internet cafe and together they launch CollegeTownUSA, a website dedicated to connecting incoming and current students with local businesses around college campuses. The site grew to over 10 million businesses in more than 4,000 college towns.
2nd Startup - 2002
Jeff and Jon launch ProducersWEB.com, which grew to become the leading online community for insurance agents and financial advisors looking to network and improve their professional skills. The site became one of the largest lead gen platforms in the financial industry.
Corporate tour of duty - 2005
ProducersWEB was acquired by Wiesner Media. Jeff and Jon stayed on to white label their lead gen platform for other media brands. In 2008, Weiser was acquired by Summit Business Media, which was subsequently acquired by ALM Media several years later. At each destination, Jeff and Jon continued their work building industry-leading lead gen platforms for media brands across multiple verticals.
Lead Marvels established - 2017
Jeff and Jon returned to their entrepreneurial roots and founded Lead Marvels, Inc., with the goal of applying their unique approach to lead generation for associations and publishers looking for incremental revenue streams and increased member/subscriber engagement.
