WAIT! ✋ I haven’t approved your access to MAAD Weekly yet, and I’m not going to …

... at least not until you complete one more thing...


From the desk of Ashton Shanks,
Springfield, Missiouri

Dear New Subscriber,

First, let me thank you and congratulate you for picking up our free newsletter: M.A.A.D. Weekly. In just a few short moments, you’ll receive unprecedented access to insights from over $100M in advertising spend across Facebook, Google, Youtube, TikTok, LinkedIn, and more!

By picking up this newsletter, you’ll soon uncover the insights, tips, and tricks we’re using to lead the charge in the areas of creative, media buying, and copywriting.

Inside you’ll get an in-depth look at everything we’re doing to not only crush our competition but more importantly, crush results for our partners.

You’ll uncover how we’re creating marketing campaigns that produce results so incredible, they defy all logic and reason.

Also get exclusive content, training, interviews, and access to pannels and round-table discussions only available to those on this very list you signed up for…


But with that said, I do have a confession to make that you might hate me for…

This Page Should NOT Exist.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.

Seriously. It shouldn’t. You were never meant to see this page.

This was never meant to exist. In fact my entire leadership team argued with me over creating this page…let alone sending traffic to it.

Because there’s something they wanted me to give you…

Which I flat out REFUSED at first.

And I’ll tell you why in a second — but first let me share some results with you from our partners, so you can see why I was determined to put my foot down.

(NOTE: The names of our exclusive partners have been redacted to honor NDA’s):

  • Partner #1: Hit 110 In Inc. 500 List (Fastest growing manufacturer in his state, #4 in the Manufacturing industry)
  • Partner #2: Made over $200k with $16k in Advertising Spend
  • Partner #3: Went from $4k in Revenue (with accounts getting shut down left and right before working with us) to $4M+ per year in revenue in under 8 months
  • Partner #4: Went from 7-Figure months to recently a 7-Figure DAY
  • Partner #5: Went from $150k to $1.4M in revenue in just 6 months
  • Partner #6: Went from $120k per month before we started working together to netting $1.2M in FRONT-END revenue
  • Partner #7: For the first time ever hit $50k+ in revenue on a RETAIL business that is appointment only (from ads)
  • Partner #8: Never really paid attention to email for his ecom business and with ONE email broadcast we produced over $17k in revenue
  • Partner #9: Secured 21 applications for their high ticket offer with just ONE email
  • Partner #10: DOUBLED their revenue from $2.5MM in 2019 to a whopping $4.4MM in 2020 when they started working with us.

And that’s just scratching the surface.

Time and time again, we deliver results for partners that would be considered impossible by most standards.

And with results like these… WHY would we ever share the “Secret Sauce?”

Why not just plant our flag and claim pretty much every mid-size business that wants to scale from $50K – $500K – $1M monthly…

Leaving NOTHING to the competition?

Well, that’s the point…

And it’s the whole reason you’re viewing this page right now.

Because one of the core principles that I’ve discovered over the years in marketing, business, and relationships is this…

One of my greatest honors in life has been making a positive impact on thousands of marketers and business owners around the world.

Do I have things I could sell you?


Our direct-response ad agency (Hemon Media) is second to none when it comes to Facebook, Google, & Youtube Ads.

Our In-House media buyer development program, HemonX, is single-handedly the BEST program out there for training media buyers in high performance, ad copywriting, and advanced media buyer tactics.

But here’s the truth…

(a truth I wish more marketers would understand)

The market ALWAYS responds to true value and authenticity.

So put that credit card away…

Lean In.

Get Ready.
