My Business Story


  • Failed at making money online through paid surveys, writing articles, and trying to sell my college books.

2012 – 2013

  • Created my first website, TheUlitmatePitcher.com (yes, spelled wrong), which led me to discover SEO. I then used SEO to grow the website’s organic traffic and sold it to a former MLB pitcher.
  • Created many successful, random websites about under-counter ice maker reviews, Bowflex reviews, TRX reviews, being an ectomorph, and even cardio training.
  • I applied for every SEO position in St. Louis and got one interview (I didn’t get the job). So, I founded GotchSEO.com with a credit card with a $500 limit instead.


  • Made over $100,000 profit from my SEO agency.
  • Created my first product, the “Anchor Text Bible.”


  • Launched Gotch SEO Academy v1.0, now considered one of the best SEO training programs in the world. And broke 1 million pageviews on GotchSEO.com


  • Gotch SEO becomes a 7-figure business. Published my first video on YouTube.


  • Quit my agency to focus 100% of my effort on Gotch SEO Academy.
  • Earned six figures in one week with Gotch SEO Academy.



  • Reached 50,000 subscribers and 2,000,000 views on YouTube.
  • Reached 10,000 followers on Twitter and 20,000 on LinkedIn.


  • Published my first book, The SEO Entrepreneur. Reached 85,000 subscribers and 3,000,000 views on YouTube.
