Mark Kabbash has an outstanding record directing the penetration and growth of companies through investor social networks, as well as a demonstrated socially driven approach to SEO Science that allows him to rocket company pages to the top of some of the most hotly contested search engine queries, dominating SERPs in industry related spaces and consistently beating major trade publications and government websites. Mark espouses a uniquely social approach to PR and brand penetration based off of an understanding of human tendencies and social sharing. Born in 1964, by age 22 Mark had hired his first employees, building a mini and mainframe computer database integration systems company that held contracts with NASA and IBM, among other notable corporations. He would go on to found an investor relations firm wherein he personally managed the PR and IR of each client company, serving as the direct liaison to the media and investment community. The company with the highest valued market cap approached $300 million. For over 20 years Mark managed the complete social and media presences of over 60 companies, gleaning invaluable experience in both media driven and interpersonal relationships management.
After acquiring the investor social network EquityGroups.com, Mark began to unravel the processes behind SEO and social commerce, using both insight and experimentation to concoct an extremely powerful formula for the organic branding of company web pages through digital sharing. Without investing a single penny into advertizing EquityGroups.com, he was able to forge it into one of the Internets most prominent hubs of the investment community.

"What I was able to achieve for the last company I worked with will pale in comparison to what I am about to do with the branding of the FONU2 platform," Mark states. "I fully believe in the mission of this company and the revolutionary nature of their seamless approach to social commerce. Companies like Zynga, Facebook (FB and Google have done well because of their people-centric approach. I firmly believe that companies which are able to understand peer to peer interactions and facilitate them will have a natural advantage, and I see massive potential in FONU2. Under my guidance, I will transform the awareness of this company within the investment community into a buzzword. I intend to utilize all the tricks I have developed during my career to drive this project forward with the most ambitious goals that I can set for myself." The involvement of such a decorated veteran of the IR and SEO world will galvanize the rate with which FONU2 will be exposed to a bevy of interested parties. Mark's vision for the branding of FONU2 will utilize sharing to exponentially increase investor and public awareness of the platform on networks like Google+ that have massive social ripple effects as well as SEO benefits. The creation of a social commerce platform that can instantly and seamlessly be fused with a highly engaged and established user base is an overdue development in the way transactions take place on the Internet today.
