When founder and CEO of mywebWOW!com, Andrew Catapano’s fortune 500 employer filed for bankruptcy, he was left with nothing but an entrepreneurial spirit and a drive to get back on his feet. Catapano, along with his business partner, Rachel Knepp, decided to use their
backgrounds in legal compliance, marketing, retail and customer service to assist people in starting their own businesses.
Since their official start in January 2009, mywebWOW!com has expanded from two entrepreneurs meeting in a coffee shop, to currently occupying a two story converted brownstone in the Short North and having over 20 full-time direct hire contractors.
“We cater our marketing strategies to those individuals and businesses who need proven results on a managed budget,” Catapano said. “Our personal results not only speak for themselves, but just ask any one of our over 100 clients whether they have received a positive return on their investment with the services we offer.”
“Working with mywebWOW!com has been excellent,” said client Eric Ahiekpor, the administrator of Premier Choice Healthcare Services. “The SEO strategy has been a huge success. I don’t know percentage wise how many customers are coming from SEO strategy, but I know it’s a big portion. I’m very happy with how everything is going right now.”
