My tips, how-tos, & advice:

Paul O'Brien

Thought leader, entrepreneur, and innovator, I have worked with major brands, startups, and influential agencies to scale ideas and businesses quickly, significantly, and efficiently.

Let me help you round out core marketing roadmap, enable strategic growth and scale, develop your business, efficiently and effectively use technology, and foster relationships that will help you create a profitable, successful venture.

Constantly seeking ways to increase acquisition, adoption, retention, revenue, and referrals. A true hacker, rigorous in the use of data and methodology to determine what will scale your business and remove barriers to your success.

Executive responsible sales management, product development, distribution channel management, marketing communications (including advertising and promotions), pricing, market research, and customer service.

Consider the obvious architect analogy... it's fairly easy to acquire customers and fill the "rooms" of your building. It's quite another thing to build a bigger building. Let's start artchitecting your growth.

A marketer these days isn't worth his salt if he can't design and build your online presence. Hire developers to build your software and look to a marketer to treat your website like the front door to the business that it is.

How much time and money should I spend developing an MVP and marketing? Do I have what it takes to be successful? How do I get funding? What are my options, and how do I approach them? What's involved in marketing and how do I do it efficiently? I need to select team members and deal with equity; help!
Whoa... slow down. You need an advisor.

He can be relied upon as a trusted partner and project manager.

  • Why Where Matters

    Some time ago, I shared some thoughts about how the size and scope of Silicon Valley eludes most entrepreneurs. That, challenging most startup communities, is the fact that comparing and contrasting one’s local economy to “Silicon Valley” easily misleads, as N. California’s startup community is much more than a city, more th...
