CEO and Founder
Rankings

Location:Fairview Heights, IL
Founded:2013
Industry: Marketing

After college, Chris Dreyer found himself supervising a room full of high school kids in detention. Unhappy with his current job, he Googled “how to make money online.”

This search led him to digital marketing courses that appealed to his competitive nature and he started cultivating a career as an affiliate marketer, an SEO specialist and eventually a business owner with a company that has made the Inc. 5000 list for fastest-growing privately held companies for four consecutive years.

Dryer is the CEO and founder of Rankings, a digital marketing agency that specializes in helping hypercompetitive personal injury attorneys dominate first-page rankings with SEO.

“We are the only digital marketing agency that’s solely focused on SEO for elite personal injury law firms, with an entire team dedicated to helping our clients dominate search results and with unparalleled industry experience,” said Dreyer. “We use a scientific approach to get our clients serious ROI and have an unrelenting conviction to be the best.”

According to his staff, Dreyer understands how frustrating it can be to find a reputable search engine optimization partner, especially in a highly competitive market. “Because of his unflinching focus on personal injury firms, Chris has got this down to a science,” they said. “He knows exactly what it takes for you to climb the rankings for searches that bring in major cases.”

He also knows what it takes to foster a cohesive and fun work environment for his staff by leading by example. “I’m a forever student, so I always continue to learn and better myself, personally and professionally,” said Dreyer. “That mentality is essential when it comes to being a digital marketing leader.”

Because SEO and marketing are always changing, Dreyer encourages his staff to stay aware and alert of the latest happenings in SEO to stay ahead of the curve and generate results for clients.

“You can’t stop educating yourself in such a dynamic environment or you are going to lose,” he said. “No one wants to lose, so I’m going to continue to learn.”

Losing focus is something Dreyer doesn’t let happen. “If I lost focus, I’d still be trying to catch up,” he said. “I wouldn’t have the business I have today, and I wouldn’t have a team who applies that same focus to the amazing results we deliver to our clients.”

For his unending commitment to learning and leading, Dreyer has been named a Titan.
