Our Story

Michael and Sam met at UUNET in the late 90’s and became office-mates at Cable & Wireless in the early 2000’s. They parted ways for a few years as Michael went on to become a part owner of a digital marketing/web development firm and Sam went to work for Verizon as a Product Marketing Manager in their Web and Colocation division. After one more job change each they knew they didn’t want to work for “the man” anymore.

In 2009 Michael decided he wanted to start his own Digital Marketing firm focusing on SEO, PPC, SMM, Email Marketing and Website Design services. He told Sam about his grand plan over a few beers and Sam jumped on board. They both quit their jobs and started Conversion Pipeline. Their combination of drive, sales skills, and marketing experience allowed them to generate revenue and grow the company from the ground up.

They brought Harry in a few years later when they decided to up their SEO game. Harry developed search engine optimization training programs at Network Solutions and has consulted with hundreds of companies to help them develop their search marketing strategies.

Just four years after our incorporation in 2009, Conversion Pipeline won Small Business of the Year and in June of 2017 the President’s Award from the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce. That was the result of excellent client support, community involvement and the successful management of numerous marketing and advertising campaigns. In March 2017, Conversion Pipeline was listed by CIO Review Magazine as one of the 20 Most Promising Google Technology Solutions Providers and in August of 2017 & 2018 were named one of the Top 25 Advertising Agencies by the Washington Business Journal.
