SmarterChaos.com LLC – Castle Rock, CO 7/9/19 – The Premier Affiliate Marketing and Online Performance Management Agency is pleased to announce the launch of our exclusive affiliate program with Big Blanket Co.
The creators of Big Blanket noticed that they kept on having to pull out 3 blankets every time they wanted to sit together on the couch, because none of them quite covered 2 people, or even one person well. The Big Blanket takes care of everybody, and does it with style.
At 10′ x 10’, it’s quite possibly the largest blanket ever made. All of their blankets are made from the highest-quality materials they could find in the world. Really, they checked.
But Big Blanket isn’t just great for its size. Other benefits include:
Ultra premium stretchy material
Congratulations on discovering Big Blanket; your search for the best blanket on the planet is finally over. Now get the one that fits you best!

SmarterChaos.com LLC – Castle Rock, CO 6/19/19 – The Premier Affiliate Marketing and Online Performance Management Agency is pleased to announce the launch of our exclusive affiliate program with Jiminy’s.
Jiminy’s speciality is making sustainable pet food and treats using cricket protein. Their products nourish our pets and promote long-term stewardship of the earth. All natural, sustainable, high protein ingredients (especially crickets!) give your dog the energy and nutrients it needs.
But why crickets?
Crickets are a sustainable superfood that dogs love. They are a complete protein source, containing all the essential amino acids. Their protein content is 35% more than beef and 65% more than chicken, while also offering high levels of Omega fats, B12, Iron, Calcium, Fiber, Potassium (and the list goes on…). Full of protein, good fat and a nutty flavor, Jiminy’s treats provide your dog with exactly what it needs.
Not only do they trump traditional livestock in nutritional value, they’re also far more sustainable to raise. Requiring less space, consuming less water (2000x less than cows or chickens), and needing less feed (every 100lbs of feed yields 5lbs beef, 30lbs chicken, 60lbs crickets), raising crickets is a farming alternative with very low environmental impact.
Oh, and they emit less greenhouse gases too (100x less than cow).
As Jiminy’s Founder and CEO Anne Carlson explains, “At Jiminy’s, we’re passionate about pets and we set out to develop products that combine the best possible nutrition and taste coupled with sustainable ingredients and practices. Ourc onsumers care deeply about the choices they make for themselves and their pets. Food content, origin, sustainability and humane and ethical practices matter. Jiminy’s understands this new mindset and puts conscious consumption at the center of everything that we do.”
It is Jiminy’s mission is to be a positive force for change by making sustainable and humane choices, ultimately reducing our pets’ carbon pawprint.
This week I am in London for London Tech Week, which has over 55,000 delegates from 90 countries, in partnership with the UK Department for International Trade. The UK leads Europe in technology investment and unicorns, which is why I am in the capital of the UK.
COLORADO COMPANIES ARRIVE IN BRITAIN TO FINDOPPORTUNITY AND INNOVATION
This week I was fortunate enough to have a front row seat helping lead a ground-breaking inaugural outreach in order to develop an exchange of innovation between Denver and London and the greater UK. The most exciting aspect of this partnership is the cooperation between the public and private sector as we forged new relationships and identified new opportunities. The Denver Economic Development and Opportunity office and The UK Department for International Trade, along with London and Partners and the UK Foreign Trade office, hosted five innovative Tech Entrepreneurs this week in and around London Tech Week Events.
The UK welcomed us with open arms, and more than one cup of coffee, as we discussed political climate, economic development opportunities, and in short, how we could link arms together to create a seamless flow of business between the heartland of America and the gateway to Europe.
Our Colorado Entrepreneur Delegates consisted of Tech-Focused companies that already lead our economy. This includes myself, Matt Frary, Chief of Chaos at SmarterChaos, (a digital marketing and customer acquisition solutions provider). It also includes Andrea Pearson, CMO of Dispatch Health (an on-demand urgent care platform), Shail Mehta, CEO/Founder of The Last Gameboard (a physical and virtual gaming platform), Charles Von Thun, Chairman of RemoteLock, (an access control as a Service, focused in the vacation rental, retail and short term rental market) and Jon Nordmark, Founder and CEO of Iterate.ai (an end-to-end innovation workflow platform).
The four key takeaways our Delegation received were:
Companies and Government Departments that wouldn’t normally interact can in fact create new and interesting partnerships to build unforeseen opportunities. We had members of Parliament, such as Dr. Liam Fox, the UK Secretary of State for International Trade, who spoke directly to our group of start-up Entrepreneurs, inspiring us one-on-one to think differently about how to approach issues and to work directly with the UK to bring our certain brand of collaboration and innovation to London.
Brexit is just a distraction for the tech sector and startups that has minimal concern for our companies as we break down the actual borders and create a virtual borderless eco-system. The Department for International Trade has done a wonderful job of ensuring that disruption will be minimal and that we can accelerate past Brexit into a much bluer ocean opportunity.
There are unexpected and very creative solutions for real problems that exist in the tech sector in Britain. We expected to find great companies when we came on this Delegation Trip to London Tech week that there are great companies, but we have confirmed that such creative companies exist in the London and UK technology scene, that are ready to activate and get to work to solve global challenges together. We knew that there must be innovative solutions out there, but to create this bridge between our countries has now created a super-highway of ideas to flow.
Not only did we find conversations interesting, but we have been able to activate real sales discussions and opportunities in real time before we even go home. There were multiple occasions that during our meetings and sessions that several of the Entrepreneurs in the group made deals or started to make deals right during the session. This was an opportunity to do actual business, rather than just talking about it.
Frannie Matthews, CEO of Colorado Technology Association says, “Some of the most productive moments were unexpected. We were able to get a group of Entrepreneurs and Private Sector folks in the room together and like a bunch of fireflies, the ideas sparked and lit the way for actual opportunities to ignite.” Adding to that, Tim Martinez, Global Business Development Manager at Denver Economic Development and Opportunity expressed, “Denver and London are so much more parallel in our values and opportunities than other markets, which raises our profiles as cities to compete arm-in-arm in a global technology eco-system where together we can punch above our weight class and capture true value.”

SmarterChaos.com LLC – Castle Rock, CO 6/11/19 – The Premier Affiliate Marketing and Online Performance Management Agency is pleased to announce the launch of our exclusive affiliate program with Positive Parenting Solutions.
Positive Parenting Solutions is the worldwide leader in online parenting education for parents of toddlers to teens. They’ve helped over 75,000 families on 6 continents get their kids to listen without nagging, yelling or losing control. No matter what problem you’re facing, they’ve seen it, solved it and can help you do the same!
Before Amy McCready discovered positive parenting strategies, she used to lose her voice nearly every day from yelling. She never imagined she would turn into that mom – you know, the one who yells All. The. Time.
In 2000, Amy discovered the power of positive parenting strategies—she finally understood why yelling, nagging, and threatening don’t work as a parenting strategy. What she learned completely changed her family, and it can change yours, too.
After years of research, studying, getting certified in Positive Discipline, and seeing success in her own family, Amy knew she had to share these tools with other parents. Using her instructional expertise as a trainer for Fortune 500 companies, Amy created an entire curriculum to share her newfound knowledge with other families. And thus, the Positive Parenting Solutions course was born.
In 2004, Amy began teaching her course anywhere parents would listen—in churches, YMCAs, community centers, preschools, companies—all because she wanted to equip other parents with tools that actually work. Over the next 5 years, Amy refined and perfected her curriculum to ensure families were experiencing high levels of success. The feedback was so positive and the demand so great that she trained other instructors to teach the course in Raleigh and surrounding North Carolina cities.
However, even by adding instructors to her team, Amy still wasn’t able to meet the demand from parents. In 2008, Amy and her husband, Dave, embarked on a full-time journey to convert Amy’s successful classroom curriculum into an online course. After a year of planning and preparation, Positive Parenting Solutions launched their online course in 2009. By taking the course online, Amy is finally able to meet the demands from parents all over the world.
SmarterChaos.com LLC – Castle Rock, CO 5/23/19 – The Premier Affiliate Marketing and Online Performance Management Agency is pleased to announce the launch of our exclusive affiliate program with Freedom Rave Wear.
Freedom Rave Wear began with just a couple hundred dollars and pockets full of business cards. They traveled to every show they could afford, creating and selling their products on the spot, while meeting new people and learning from the EDM culture first hand. As novice ravers, they knew they would have to learn everything on the fly, but trusted the pursuit of their passion.
They also knew that if they wanted to be successful, they had to deliver exceptional products and services — simple as that. All handmade in San Diego, Freedom Rave Wear has become one of the best-known festival fashion brands. With vendor booths at over 50 EDM festivals nationwide and over 60,000 miles traveled promoting their vision, they have built a real community with those that share their principles of: Expression, Confidence, Love, & Community.
The work environment continues to evolve as companies look to their employees to help direct the culture and business practices of the organization.
To guide our future, SmarterChaos has established a number of committees that employees have the option to join. The aim of these committees is to bring a holistic approach to the organization and our goal is to empower employees to take ownership in shaping our company culture. The philosophy is really to create the company together. We are all winners if we finish the race together! As Chief of Chaos Matt Frary says, “I think that the more our employees shape our culture and get involved in these committees, the more they really own our outcomes.”

An interview with Mike Mitchell, MMP Living If it’s true that you become who you surround yourself with, then SmarterChaos just got a little, well, smarter. Meet Mike Mitchell, whose Colorado-based MMP Living is now partnering with SmarterChaos to leverage the power of Amazon and other massive e-commerce platforms. It’s no secret that many consumers are bypassing traditional search and going straight to Amazon when looking for products. It’s now crucial for you to be reaching consumers in Amazon’s ecosystem. At least $4 of every $10 spent online is with Amazon!
Mitchell is an entrepreneur with more than a quarter century of experience in the implementation of technology, management of operations, and business development in everything from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies. In his career, he’s worked with clients including Orvis, Crate and Barrel, Williams Sonoma, Sharper Image and Frontgate. Working for Abacus, he drove more than $50 million in sales through product launches, and was a driving factor in launching Amazon UK. With Datalogix, he played a major role in developing the business from $1 million to more than $80 million in sales before his departure.
Now, as founder and COO of MMP Living, Mitchell manages global Amazon relationships, we well as overall business operations, technology, and the development of current and new brand relationships.
Mitchell believes the new partnership between his company and SmarterChaos is a match made in heaven.
“We’re e-com, SmarterChaos is digital…that’s where we think there’s a fit. Before we partnered, I talked to Matt like 10 times, and told him, ‘you know we’re in Denver.’ Now, we’re another leg of the stool for them. Building pipelines for each other. We’re just quietly doing our thing, a top 50 worldwide seller and partner on Amazon, and we’re quite established,” Mitchell says. “We predominantly sell on Amazon, but we’re also on some of the other e-commerce platforms like Jet, eBay, Walmart, and we’re starting to do a huge amount of business on Facebook through our shop.” Building and protecting brands is Mitchell’s passion.
“There’s nothing more important to us than protecting and building brands. And I use the term protecting, because with the proliferation of gray goods, there’s so many challenges, and we’re so diligent and resolute to protect brands,” Mitchell explains.
“In my dealings with SmarterChaos,” Mitchell continues, “I’ve learned more in an hour than I knew in my lifetime of how digital marketing works. Every one of the people I’ve met within their organization has taught me something and I’ve loved it. And I believe that the future of our businesses is so great.”
“Our office is in Westminster, Colorado, where we have 30 guys,” Mitchell says. “We also have an office in Dublin, Ireland, where my business partner is from, and we have 10 guys over there as well.”
Matt Frary, Chief of Chaos at SmarterChaos, says “we have to focus to drive customer acquisition for our clients on ALL platforms — including Amazon — and the partnership with MMP Living and Mike’s company gives us unique depth in that channel. Amazon is an important channel because four of every 10 dollars spent online is with Amazon, and is the third-largest search and ad platform. For our clients to compete, we must be able to reach their customers where they are hanging out online, and they are definitely hanging out on Amazon. Watch as we integrate closely with MMP Living, and provide best-in-class Amazon Marketing Services and consulting for our clients.”
