Behind The Code Show: Shane Walton


“Build a team of talented people which will allow you to focus on what you do best.” ~ Shane Walton

Shane is an entrepreneur, marketing genius, lover of hats and overall amazing guy.  He and his wife own Green Vine Marketing which is a Denver, Colorado based digital marketing firm that they have been operating for about eight years.  In those eight years the company has grown from a two person operation charging $200 per project to a thriving team of talented people and now charging a minimum of $5,000 per project.

We’ll delve into:

  • What it’s like working with your significant other.
  • The one killer app he (and his entire team) uses to run the business.
  • The genius online form (and business process) he uses to generate an extra $15,000 in sales each month.
  • How his business streamlines each project and gets the design “right” everytime.
  • His daily morning routine (including his breakfast smoothie recipe)!
  • Go back in time and learn about one of his first paying jobs.
  • The most important thing that he thinks you should be focusing on.
  • The best piece of advice he ever received.
  • How he went from getting $200 per job to now only accepting jobs that start at $5,000.
  • See what kind of computer gear he is using now (you’ll be surprised at this!)
  • and a LOT more!
