According to Michael Sharkey, CEO & Co-Founder of Bislr:

“Marcia’s track record, domain experience, and energy blew me away. We went from “let’s figure out how to work together” to “let's acquire Open Marketing” in less than 5 weeks. That almost never happens. It’s a testimony to the fact that Bislr and Open Marketing share the same vision on how intelligent website technology can empower marketers to generate more leads and speed up cycle times.”

Bislr has experienced significant growth since officially launching in February 2013. It has successfully enabled 40+ clients to launch on the Bislr platform including O&L Leisure (, Dovetailhq (, and TheTeamSport ( Kadanoff decided that the best way for her to help more businesses succeed at inbound marketing and lead generation was to join the Bislr team.

"We had been struggling to build intelligent websites using a combination of products. Taming the technology beast was taking up far too much of our time and our client’s money. After closely following the progress of Bislr, we knew that the best way for us to help more clients to succeed with digital marketing was to get them up and running on a better platform. Bislr is that platform.”
