Kirk is the owner of ZATO, his PPC Marketing agency and has been working in Paid Search since 2010, with a specific focus in Google/Bing Shopping Ads.
In 2017, he was named the #4 Most Influential PPCer in the world by PPC Hero, likely related to his obsession with writing & speaking on PPC. Kirk has published articles on Search Engine Land, Moz, PPC Hero, Wordstream, and the Bing Ads blog, and has spoken at SMX, Hero Conference, SLC Digital Marketing Conference, and State of Search.
When not diving into ad campaigns, Kirk can be found discussing PPC on twitter, playing with his 4 kids, dating his wife, hiking in the Montana mountains, leading music at his church, and just trying to generally stay awake.
If you hire Kirk, you will find personal service, full account ownership (you keep the accounts and data), experience in multiple industries, and a desire to learn your business (not just force you into a template mold).

It’s hard to find a company that you can trust with your business, Zato is one of those companies. They truly want to do what is best for your organization. They are the perfect blend of Professionalism, Experience, and Expertise.
Zato is an exceptional company. They continually demonstrate a commitment to bettering our results, have thorough reporting on their activities and tremendous communication on any and every question we ask.
I've really enjoyed working with Kirk. He is an innovative marketer who is always honest and straightforward when discussing the best strategies for your account. We saw great results when working with Zato and would recommend Kirk without hesitation.
Kirk was always friendly and very professional in all of his work with me. He was especially patient in explaining his very technical business to someone who is definitely not tech savvy. I would recommend Kirk highly to anyone in the PPC market.
