Stephen Carl is the founder of Needle Movement, a digital strategy company that helps eCommerce brands nail their marketing. Stephen began his digital career as an early employee at an Amazon-funded start-up in 1998 and has been chasing online conversions ever since.
With Needle Movement, Stephen decided that his true calling was to create the next growth story. To use his digital marketing expertise to help emerging brands avoid expensive mistakes and target the big marketing wins.
Over a decade ago he beat a billion dollar company by outranking their website on Google. Since then, he knew he was onto something and has gone on to build an international search engine marketing company that’s worked with NBA teams, and Inc 5000 & Shark Tank featured businesses.
Having started his business right before the 2008 recession, Damon is familiar navigating and growing a business through times like today.
After founding AmmoniaSport™, an internationally recognized, e-commerce company catering to professional athletes, I began implementing similar tactical execution, conversion strategies and driving digital awareness for a select group of private clients. In time, this led to the formalization of AO2 Marketing.
I partnered strategically with Amazon guru Nathan Neeley and financial whiz Jon Fuller to form AO2–a full-service, performance-based Amazon management firm with clients across the Americas, Europe and the Middle East.

So Ann took her little “side-hustle” business and doubled-down…taking her sales from 2K per month to 90K per month in three months’ time. It was more than enough to bring her husband home. But she didn’t stop there…Network marketing, info marketing, affiliate marketing, creating and selling her own products…Ann did it all…to the tune of $20 million+ in sales. She kept going, training thousands of people to build their own thriving online businesses.
