Where most Internet marketers just tell you what you should do, Marty Dickinson uses everything he recommends for his own Internet strategies to promote his own businesses, products and services. Honesty, integrity, focus, results come first.
When his parents asked him what he was going to do with his life upon graduating from York College of PA in 1989 with a B.S. degree in Marketing, Marty Dickinson replied, “I don’t think what I want to do exists yet.”
So, until the Internet came along, Marty developed his career in management, marketing and sales while working in industries including transportation, manufacturing, and software development.
How Marty Dickinson Started His Own Business
As the story goes, Marty started Music Mates in 1995 as a pet project, which was originally an off-line musician referral system to help musicians and bands connect with each other. A casual guitar player himself, Marty had trouble meeting other musicians since he was working in the corporate world 14 hours a day or more. Music Mates was born to help other musicians with similar challenges.
In early 1996, a participant in the Music Mates system introduced Marty to the Internet and Music Mates off-line became MusicMates.com on-line and the company grew very quickly.
In June of 1996, Marty was offered a major promotion at his corporate position but turned it down and, with the support of his loving wife, resigned on that day to pursue Music Mates full-time.
HereNextYear evolved because of the visibility of Music Mates on the search engines. Business owners in the music industry would search for something related to music and Music Mates was always on the top of the search engines. They began to contact Marty to see if he could do for them what was accomplished for Music Mates.
Suddenly, Marty saw the opportunity for not one but two businesses with great growth potential. By automating Music Mates, he was able to grow both companies simultaneously.
Today, MusicMates.com is one of the largest on-line musician referrals in the country and HereNextYear has become a premeir Internet marketing service provider for more than 200 businesses around the country.
