Michael Brooks is an entrepreneur, philanthropist and founder of ResponseCRM and GoLance, with over 17 years of experience in e-commerce and digital marketing. Over the past 15 years Michael has focused on helping multiple businesses succeed by developing electronic payment platforms and creating successful digital marketing models.
Michael, born in Long Beach, California, began his career selling candy in the first grade, then working in the media to pay for college. At the age of 22 he began to build an event marketing company, where without anyone’s help or advice he put everything he had into building this business. Young and inexperienced, he lost all his money and went into debt, ended up living in a car for 6 months until he could earn enough money and get back on his feet. In his spare time he learned how to promote sales and marketing services and this helped him get out of debt.
It wasn’t long before he saw an opportunity in the dot.com industry when he saw the possibility of helping others find strategic solutions for businesses using e-commerce. By 2002 he started growing a business development company of only 2 people to a direct marketing e-commerce business of over $2,000,000 in sales in 2.5 years.
Shortly thereafter, he became Founder and President of an electronic payments company, increasing its revenue to $250,000 per month, becoming a registered ISO/MSP company of Columbus Bank & Trust and expanding its sales team to more than 300 agents.
After that Michael developed and brought an e-commerce platform to PCI level 1 compliance matching the level of PayPal and became the president of Transaction Corporation, which he founded in 2010 focused on the development of e-commerce, marketing software, media buying, workforce marketplaces and electronic payment systems. This is where GoLance was born.
