“Kevin Whelan is invaluable to our business. His strategic expertise and depth of industry knowledge have taken us to a new level.
Kevin has transformed our marketing from a hodgepodge of ideas and loosely related activities to a machine of repeatable, measurable processes.
He is a part of every major decision we make and his opinion carries an enormous amount of weight. I can’t imagine not having Kevin’s support as we prepare to scale Launch.”
—Mike Kriel, CEO, Launch Workplaces
“Kevin is, by far, the most versatile digital marketing expert we’ve had the pleasure to contract with.
Originally, he was the lead on conducting a major facelift to our website: nwcav.com. The final product is something that students always comment on as having had a major influence on their decision to come to Northwest. We are exceptionally proud of this site. Kevin has always been there to help us tweak the site, but as his expertise expanded to include Digital Business Strategies he became even more invaluable.
When COVID hit in March 2020 we started to think about transitioning some of our business online. His marketing skillset coupled with his experience in the web development world have been tremendously helpful as we have navigated the past year and a half. In collaboration with Kevin, we have been developing thenorthwestmethod.com and as we near launch, we’re ecstatic with the product that he has been so integral in bringing to life.
There are a few people I know who can help you define your brand, wireframe your website, and work with contractors (including brand experts, web programmers, and digital marketing) to bring everything together into one cohesive marketing program.
—Jonathan Kinney, Co-owner, NWCAV and The Northwest Method
“We engaged Kevin during a very difficult and pivotal time in our business. Covid lockdowns were in place, revenue dropped off a cliff, and our marketing team was unfortunately downsized to one person.
Kevin brought order & leadership to the chaos, gave our one-person marketing team the direction and confidence needed to succeed, and ultimately helped to pull our company through one of the most difficult times we’ve ever experienced in our 10-year history.
Thanks to Kevin, we’re now back to growing our marketing team (the right way) with a clear vision for the future of the department and the right systems in place to be successful.”
—Nick Clark, Owner and CEO, Common Desk
“Since hiring Kevin to oversee our marketing two years ago, we’ve grown from two to five locations with a 285% increase in monthly recurring revenue (MRR) while maintaining a 3.5% average marketing cost during that period.”
—Kane Willmott, Owner @ iQ Offices Toronto, Canada

“Kevin is wonderful. He has also been very instrumental in PureModern’s success. One of my favorite attributes of his service was that I never felt like he was watching the clock and hurrying us through the process. I usually had lots of questions and wanted to know the “Why.” He always took the time to listen and provided excellent advice. I would highly recommend Kevin.”
—Amy Gustavson, PureModern
“What I appreciate most about working with Kevin is the flexibility, experience, and knowledge he brings to our marketing. We are able to leverage his industry contacts to better educate ourselves, as well as come up with content and an image that clearly displays our brand and culture. We couldn’t be happier.”
—Wes Carpani, Northern Specialty Supplies
“I was introduced to Kevin through a webinar I was on. Immediately was drawn to the clear and concise manner in which he delivered his value proposition. Made advertising for coworking seem simple.
Truth of the matter is that he breaks things down into bite-size chunks and we improve a little bit each week. He holds me accountable to what I commit to doing. Best part is that he makes it easy to understand and implement.
Since I started working with Kevin, we immediately increased our occupancy. We also were able to focus on building sustainable systems to make marketing repeatable.
There’s always a concern before you work with someone that they’re just another person selling snake oil. Once I had a call with Kevin, I realized that he really had value and knowledge to bring to the table. Made it a no brainer to work with him.”
—Josh Mente, Owner @ Co-Balt Workspace, Baltimore, USA
I worked with Kevin when I was the in-house marketing manager at a premier coworking space. Working with Kevin was truly a delight and he really knows the industry well. The best part about working together was that it really felt like we were working TOGETHER. Kevin helped plan and guide our strategy without bulldozing my ideas.
—Evan Shultz, Marketing Manager @ Versa, Columbus, Ohio
“After implementing your suggested optimizations, the website is now performing 3x better in terms of conversions. Inquiries have increased from 100 total inquiries to a total of 280 per month.”
–Lucas Seyhun, The Farm Soho, New York, USA
“Kevin helped me get a grasp on what KPIs I should be tracking and also helped me to identify lost opportunities and leaks in my sales funnel. He has also been instrumental in helping me refine and focus my overall messaging. Kevin is a wealth of information when it comes to marketing in the coworking industry and I highly recommend working with him.”
—Sarah Athanas, Owner @ Groundwork, Massachusetts, USA
“Kevin has been an incredible mentor and incremental in helping me market my space. As an owner/operator I have to wear a lot of hats. Marketing has always been overwhelming with a lot of moving pieces. Kevin does a great job of slowing things down and really making you dig deep to give your space a voice, a story.”
—Matt Irvin, Owner/Operator @ Innerstate Cowork, Menlo Park, USA
Navigating online presence, social media, and marketing concepts is a difficult and challenging process. Kevin truly is an industry leader; from the initial set up of our website, to the integration of third party software, to an online marketing campaign. We strongly recommend the services of KVNW.
