Hi, I’m Andrew Mazer.
I come from a long line retailers and restaurant owners.
I started my first business in 1986 at age 21; a wholesale business which I still own today. My wholesale business was a spin off from my family’s old fashioned hardware store. I was the rebel, younger brother and I had a bigger vision. I started with $1000 in savings and made an investment in some merchandise, then I went out and sold it to other hardware stores in Philadelphia. That’s how it all started. Now I serve customers all over the country and around the world.
Serving other business owners has been a passion of mine, now for over 32 years. It’s a great feeling for me to be a part of the success of so many people.
My First Website in 1996
I had a feeling this “internet thing” was going to be important so I hired a guy to make a website ($2000.00) for my company, Mazer Wholesale. I didn’t make a single sale or acquire a single new customer as a result of that website. In 2000, I discovered a technique that worked and I finally started hearing these beautiful words: “I found out about your business online.” This was a game changer. I soon began waking up just about every morning to brand new orders and brand new customers.
Then I Got Serious
For about 4 years, I didn’t change a thing and the new orders and new customers were still rolling in. One day, it occurred to me, “This is working great, but I could probably be doing something more.” This is when I got serious and began to learn as much as I could about marketing my business online. I have never looked back.
I Began Sharing My Experiences
I learned how to make my business visible (page 1 on the search engines, like Google) when people go online looking for a product I sell. Around 2007, I began giving a couple of my friends some advice about making their business become more visible online. They met with life-changing results too.
Realizing I had this valuable knowledge with which to help other small business owners, I spring into action. Educating business owners about the possibilities to improve and grow their business by combining marketing fundamentals to the internet has become by passion.
I’m the father of 4 children and very happily married. I read a lot and study a lot on the subject of marketing, especially ONLINE marketing.
