Read on to find out just how powerful it can be!
Online marketplaces have skyrocketed over the past decade and are now the norm. Shoppers go online for easy, quick, and affordable options for everything. From Airbnb and Homeaway to Uber and Lyft to Amazon, Ebay, Cars.com, Zillow, and Bizbuysell, the list goes on and on — these on-demand marketplaces exist seemingly everywhere EXCEPT for marketing and advertising… until now.
We analyzed one simple question:
The fact of the matter is that people are constantly aimlessly searching the internet for creative and affordable ways to market their business. Being marketers ourselves, we knew there wasn’t any quick go-to source for a business owner to search for all the different marketing or advertising opportunities in their area.
The MarketingZoom founder, already running a successful sports marketing agency, Drive Motorsports International, began to explore the concept of a central hub for buying and selling marketing that everyone could use — any business owner, any marketing team, or anyone looking to potentially buy or sell any type of marketing or advertising opportunity.
We weren’t interested in making something that was only used by corporate marketers, but rather a consumer-facing platform similar to eBay, Cars.com, HomeAway.com, Zillow, Airbnb or Amazon. We took what we knew from running a successful marketing agency and what we know about buying and selling marketing, and combined it with modern marketplace concepts that today’s consumer knows, loves, and expects. MarketingZoom was born.
We make it easy to find the perfect marketing partner in 30 seconds or less. MarketingZoom allows users who are looking to buy and users who are looking to sell to freely communicate together, share photos, comments, proposals, and much more. Whether you’re looking for opportunities to market your local business, have a marketing opportunity to sell, or are a marketing agency, MarketingZoom has you covered!

MarketingZoom just launched in January 2016, and we’ve already been featured inGeekwire, Marketing Dive, Marketingland, Marketwired, Startup Tip, and Killerstartups. We also have a large number of professional athletes who will sign on as endorsers.
The industry connections we have from Drive Motorsports International will help us grow quickly, as many big companies we already work with have expressed great interest in joining MarketingZoom.
We have well over 100 clients already signed up in a short period of time since launching and are still in beta mode.
Up next: We will be launching an Indiegogo campaign in the near future, and have plans to add discussion forum and job board features to our platform. We are also looking to expand into other industries besides marketing with new and innovative marketplaces.
Tony Scott, Founder/CEO
Tony has been the Founder, President, and CEO of Drive Motorsports International, a sports marketing agency, since 2007. Tony has spent his entire life finding success within the motorsports industry. He grew up racing motocross, ever chasing a career dream to race professional supercross. This eventually led to an opportunity at a management level within team Honda. He then took an offer to bring his skill set to NASCAR, and was then recruited into the agency world.
Knowing he could do better, he branched off to start his own agency, with two core clients who were looking for something fresh and different; DMI was born. Today, the agency has brokered more than $100M in sponsorship transactions, delivered billions of impressions, and generated over $200M in B2B direct revenue for sponsors annually.
Always an entrepreneur, Tony will be embarking on a number of large business projects with the first being MarketingZoom.com.
Tony understood from his years in the industry that the current way of both buying and selling marketing on both a local and national level was rather caveman-ish and was an issue for all businesses and sellers of marketing. He created MarketingZoom in part to make his own life easier, but also provide a much needed solution to all businesses large and small.
Two years of development and a large individual investment later, MarketingZoom is positioned to be the go-to platform for every business in North America to quickly and easily connect with marketing opportunities to grow their business.
