Greg Moore

 

 

Digital Marketing, PPC, Web Design, SEO

Hello, my name is Greg Moore and I’m a digital marketer, entrepreneur, and business consultant. My passion is finding hidden profit and growth potential in ANY business.

After graduating from The University of New Mexico with a degree in Applied Mathematics, I entered the workforce as a Satellite Engineer maintaining software for the government. Later, my wife and I answered an internal desire to enter the business world, so we started our own remodeling company selling over $50 million in less than a decade. Due to innovative marketing, advertising efforts, and creativity, our business was very prosperous. Much of our success was earned by our core belief that empowering and mentoring employees evokes a mutually beneficial environment.

Now I run AvaWing, a digital marketing agency and consulting firm in Fort Collins, CO. Understanding the challenges of being an entrepreneur, like working with little capital and needing guided direction and quick, useful information, enables me to pass my knowledge onto others. I also know that as a small business owner, implementing smart and economical strategies to get sales, leads, and clients is crucial to you.

Through conducting national workshops, 100’s of sales team meetings, and pitching large corporations like The Home Depot and Ace Hardware, I’ve gained invaluable industry knowledge and hands on experience. Working in the fields of Engineering, Pharmaceuticals, Chemistry, Health & Wellness, Photography, Hospitality, and Home Improvement has taught me substantial business expertise to offer back to our community.

Working with you to lift your entrepreneurship spirit to help you grow, build, and escalate your business will not only create higher profits, but teach you how to maximize the potential in your specific industry.

Consulting Expertise Includes:
  • Digital Marketing
  • Website Building/Landing Pages
  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • Social Media Management
  • Pay-Per-Click (PPC)
  • Sales Management
  • Advertising
  • Photography & Video Production
  • Brand Building
  • Motivational Speaking
  • Business Consulting
