Meet the Click Team

Over a 1 Zillion Years of Experience. Woohoo!

OK, maybe not a zillion, but we’ve been here since the beginning, which is like a zillion years.  Click started by a Google marketing leader in 2013.  The team behind the curtain has a wide array of digital marketing, web programming, app development, interface design, graphic design, direct marketing, social media, email marketing and pay per click management, and so on and so on and so on.  We’ve worked across a whole bunch of industries (big software, marketing agencies, education, non-profit, and ministries) in B2B and B2C.  But what really matters to you of course is … can we drive results?  Yep, just read some of the case studies.

We realized one day that there was simply a better way to help companies and non-profits compete online in a more cost effective way. Over time, we’ve also realized that most of us have spent a lot of our time working with customers that were very “challenging”. This caused a lot of burnout and it hurt our other relationships in and outside of work. So now we only take on projects we know we can help and enjoy helping.

John Paul Mains – Chief Scientist

Has spent the last 19 years as a digital marketing and technology leader for companies like Google, BMC Software and AT&T as well as small software start-ups and web agencies. John Paul brings a wide range of industry experience in B2B, e-commerce and technology best practices.  He started out as a developer back in 1994 when the web was delivered over 14.4K modems and websites were really ugly.  He still thinks the web is generally ugly, but at least it is much faster.  His big 15 minutes of fame is selling imac.com to Apple many years ago.

These days, John Paul is changing perceptions on how to take the guesswork out of user experience and digital marketing through engagement analytics. He writes for Search Engine Land and Marketing Land on conversion and engagement optimization.
