Co-Founder & CEO
Douglas Swift is Co-Founder & CEO of Third-Party Solutions LLC. He holds a Bachelors in Business Administration in Marketing with a minor in Political Science from the University of Michigan in Flint, MI.
Swift and long-time friend & Chief Operating Officer, Chanc Killion, founded the company as Douglas was preparing to leave for The Columbus School of Law in D.C. Upon successful completion of his first semester, Swift felt compelled to direct his full attention into the continued success of the business. Since his departure he has now helped the company manage dozens of websites across a broad spectrum of industries and has never looked back.
Swift & Killion attribute much of their initial success to being part of an exclusive SEO (Search Engine Optimization) community privy to information on search engine algorithms unknown to the majority of small and big businesses alike. This helped them to get some of their clients with comparatively modest budgets; to even appear above publicly traded companies for highly competitive keywords within their respective niches.
While the company’s success began with a competitive edge in SEO, Swift has dedicated his life to encapsulating everything that is online marketing in this day and age.
“While we’ve always had much success in the SEO realm, we couldn’t help but feel we were leaving so much opportunity on the tabel by not helping our clients utilize every form of online marketing available.
So, we not only spent an absorbent amount of time developing our Social Media, Pay Per Click & Web Development divisions; but we recruited many of the leading authorities in the world in these spaces to help grow these departments and our clients success is only surpassed by our never-ending determination for further growth with these developments now in place.”
If you want things you’ve never had before you have to do things you’ve never done. Very little is needed to have a happy life; it’s all within yourself and in your way of thinking. Only you can change your life, no-one can do it for you. Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy. Don’t give into the myth of luck. Believe in the idea that self dedication and being focused on the right thing will lead to the achievement of all your goals. Do what you love and be the best at it. These are some of Chanc Killion’ favorite quotes.
Meet our co-founder and COO Chanc Killion, AKA Chance without the E or Chank. Proud father, christian and entrepreneur.
Our CEO and long time friend Douglas Swift and I started TPS to help companies find solutions to increase their online revenue and reach their marketing goals. They started off as an SEO company and quickly realized that people are just as impatient as they are. SEO takes time and patience. People don’t want to wait. They want what they want and they want it now. This is why they have shifted from specializing in just SEO or SEM to partnering with some of the most prominent paid ads specialists in the world to drive in those immediate results. They consider themselves search engine manipulators, innovators to the process of online sales. They help companies grow their bottom line through strategic online marketing strategies such as conversion optimization, targeted paid ads on google or social media, the development of highly converting landing pages or sales funnels. Instead of simply helping companies grow their online presence they assist with the development of building a successful online strategy built with marketing automations.
“While the sheeps are all copying each other, we the wolves of our industry are always looking for ways to innovate the process. Douglas and I wanted to build a company that is built from delivering results not empty promises. We pride ourselves in delivering the results that our clients expect unlike most other marketing companies. Most people get a bad taste in their mouth when they hear a sales pitch from a marketing company, we are here to change that.”
