Meet the team
Jon PironFounder | President
Performance Marketing executive responsible for scaling revenue at three VC-backed AI Performance Marketing Tech startups: 1) QuanticMind, an SEM bid platform (acquired); 2) TapInfluence, the largest Influencer Marketing platform globally (acquired); and 3) MotiveMetrics, an Ad Copy offering for Google & Bing. During his tenure, each company grew annual revenue (ARR) to ~$10M, representing anywhere from 4x to 20x growth and resulting in the ability of each startup to raise over $20M in venture capital (~$75M total). It was during this time that Jon formed a unique and extremely effective methodology for managing Paid Search accounts himself. Traffic By Intent was born from our early efforts to automate & productize his proprietary approach, which so far has produced double-to-triple digit growth in SEM Accounts — like clockwork.
