Justin Cooke
CMO
CMO/Founder at Empire Flippers and host of Empire Flippers podcast, Justin is the brand ambassador of the company. From content to paid traffic, he keeps the sales staff busy and the lead funnels full. He’s also a digital nomad (i.e. homeless), but spends most of his time in Manila, Bangkok, and Saigon. When not geeking out on sales funnels and marketing automation, he loves fruity drinks by the beach and watches Game of Thrones as a guilty pleasure.

A Bit, Different

Hmm, how shall we say it, we run things a bit, different. Empire Flippers maintains a distinct company culture that encourages our team to play as hard as they work.

Working hard and playing hard is in the DNA of our company.

The team is made up of folks with a broad range of interests, but we come together on one key thing, we love helping people buy and sell websites.
