A Little of This & That

Please note: I am not taking on any new clients as I am currently employed with Plative.


Salesforce Consulting, Implementation, Development, and Training services offered. No job too small. My typical customer has 1 to 20 Salesforce users, and I’ve also supported large enterprises with 100’s of users. Specializing in small, quick implementations for businesses on the move. Startups too! If you have Salesforce and your staff is not getting the most out of it, you’re not alone. I can help you with all the best ways to manage your business in Salesforce with lead tracking, sales processes, and reporting. That means convenience, always being organized, and a 360-degree view of the customer. It means no more paper folders, Excel spreadsheets, or sticky notes — it’s all in Salesforce CRM.

Account Engagement (Formerly Pardot)

For Email Automation, I recommend Account Engagement as the best customizable platform. It also plays nicely with Salesforce. Marketing Automation is giving businesses of all sizes a chance to give marketing efforts a hands-free approach. Salesforce Marketing Cloud Account Engagement (AKA #MCAE) is a highly sophisticated marketing automation tool owned by Salesforce that helps marketers create more leads, generate more pipeline, and empower sales to close more deals. With Account Engagement (Formerly Pardot), you’ll see results at every stage of the sales process, from click to close and beyond. As a Pardot Developer, I can help implement the platform, create your email designs, set up drip programs, and execute world-class campaigns to boost revenue.

Website Design

Make a statement with a new, mobile-friendly WordPress website. I’ll build you a website that will look great on all devices. Many people are using mobile to shop and it’s crucial that your website functions well on a mobile device. Did you know? 58% of phone callers first went to the company’s website to try to resolve their issue. Your customers expect answers on your website, full contact information, and a clear list of products or services. We’ll build your new website with organic SEO in mind. I’m up on the latest trends to make your website look great and also be friendly to Google search crawlers.

Pay Per Click

PPC Advertising instantly delivers targeted traffic to your website. I discover your keywords and then use those to advertise on Google and Facebook to attract qualified buyers. I manage the technical and creative aspects for you, which includes setup, ad creation, creative copywriting and managing the day to day nuances of running ad campaigns. I’ll connect your ad clicks to leads in Salesforce for better Marketing ROI tracking. If you can’t measure it – you can’t manage it. I also serve ads on Instagram and LinkedIn. Get your website on the top of Google fast with PPC Search Ads.


With best practices white-hat Search Engine Optimization (SEO) solutions, I will grow your website traffic so you get more new customers. My SEO services can help you generate more qualified sales leads. What’s not to love about that? I keep up on all the industry changes so your website will show up when people search for your products and services. Back in the day, people would pay $3k/monthly (at least) to get on Google Page 1. I’m proud to say that I have many customers on Google Page 1 that paid only a small one-time fee. You do not have to spend a fortune. Full disclosure, for some companies, it’s nearly impossible to get on Google Page 1 because of the completion you face. I’ll give you a free consultation before partnering with you to determine if we envision success at the end of the project.

Email Marketing

Let’s face it – we all get too many emails, but that doesn’t change the fact that email marketing is still a powerful way to boost your business. I can design emails for Pardot, HubSpot and many other platforms. Even on a tight budget, with email service providers (ESP’s) like MailChimp, we can nurture your leads with highly engaging emails that people will actually want to open. It’s true! I have many years of experience and I know how to get you a high deliverability rate, high open rate and a lot of clicks. I’ll help with cleaning up your lists, connecting to your CRM, and tracking all the important metrics.

Former Website Bio: I am currently employed with Plative.

Hi, I’m Mike. From 2014 – 2021 I ran Clear Business Group, a small shop delivering big agency results supporting Salesforce, Pardot & Digital Marketing. I started CBG to help people maximize their investment in marketing technology and to help them run profitable campaigns to acquire new customers.

I believe that success is found by tracking leads from click to close. Since lead generation takes an investment on your part, managing contacts and deals in a CRM like Salesforce is key to success. Not to mention a great tool to measure Marketing ROI.

I do 4 things for any project:

  1. Conceptualize a strategy
  2. Design it
  3. Perform and execute the said strategy
  4. Finally, in order to scale, optimize it

I’ve been running digital marketing campaigns since the early days of Facebook and Google Ads. Through the years I’ve learned what works – what doesn’t. Tracking campaigns in Salesforce and nurturing leads with Pardot (Account Engagement) is a great way to boost your business.

For some clients, I run Marketing Operations, Salesforce, Account Engagement (formerly Pardot), and more. For others, I’m an on-call team member for added support in specific areas of need. I’ve been serving local businesses in Irvine, Newport Beach, Carlsbad, Oceanside, and all over San Diego & Orange County for many years.

Whether you are looking for a Salesforce Implementation, Development, Pardot Account Engagement Marketing Automation, or digital marketing solutions to boost your business, you came to the right place.

Let’s make your business a revenue-driving machine.
