Having grown with the digital marketing industry during the boom of cellular and digital technologies, Lance was named the youngest Vice President in the history of AT&T. From there, he went on to found the Premise Division at YellowPages.com for the very fact that the digital space was priming itself for businesses to find success.
Once Lance realized that those who claimed to be digital marketers, at the time, neglected to value or respect the potential and opportunities the internet would soon provide, he understood that the product needed to adapt in order to keep up with its evolution.
He’s a Digital Marketing Authority
In the earliest days of digital marketing, Lance was so thrilled about the internet’s potential, that he left the security of his executive corporate leadership role, enlisted his sister, Jolin, and embarked to begin his own digital marketing firm: One that would always provide a product that could benefit clients and businesses of every size, and provide a customer service experience that would transform clients into family.
Since the inception of 1SEO.com, Lance has played pivotal roles in the launches, expansions, and sustained success of several businesses throughout Philadelphia and other locations across the United States.

He’s One of Philly’s Phavorite Sons
As one of over a dozen brothers and sisters, Lance’s Philadelphia roots run deep, spending his early years in Bucks County. And, if you ask him, Lance will proudly tell you that his humble beginnings instilled the work ethic which has carried him from selling flowers and pretzels on the corner of Frankford & Academy as a six year old child to where he stands today: At the helm of a digital empire which hasn’t stopped expanding since its establishment in 2009.
Lance always says that America is the only country where you can grow up in orphanages and group homes and one day become a multimillionaire when you have a mother willing to fight tirelessly to get back to her children and provide for them. His inspiration stems directly from watching his mother’s strength and determination. He often sums it up with this quote:
“Can a man’s destiny be changed? If he believes in himself and works harder than everyone else, a man can achieve absolutely anything!”
He’s living, breathing truth that drive determines the outcome and is the guy you go see if you want to grow your business online.
In His Own Words: Lance’s Advice for Digital Marketers
Do you have the next great idea for a business? Are you looking to build your brand? Do you think you have the drive and determination to be as successful as you desire?
Fantastic — so does everybody else!
Please don’t mistake my honesty for arrogance. I want to emphasize to you that everybody’s goals include being the boss one day. Everyone’s goals are to have the mansion, the cars, the models, riches beyond the wildest of dreams… But, at the end of the day, that’s all they have “goals”. If you ask me, they only really have a wish– because the thin line that separates wishes from goals is effort, something which seems to be in short supply these days.
To sum it up, I’m here to tell you that the difference between a goal and a wish is a plan. If you’re reading this and are not one of my employees or family members, I’m willing to bet that’s because you have the desire to spread an idea or grow a business. If that’s the case, allow me to sincerely congratulate you for being here. I’m going to help get you where you’re going, which is why I’ve crafted a six step-by-step guide for new digital marketers. Now, get to work!
