Dave Foran Who & Why

Hi, my name is Dave Foran and InternetBizServices.com is my local Dallas-Ft. Worth | DFW internet marketing services company that I started with my partner and good friend, Jim Hummel. I am a full-time professional internet marketing business guy and I hope you find this site valuable in your own pursuit of making money online. I own a number of internet properties and use this site as my primary way of presenting local internet marketing services to clients here in the DFW area.

My personal blog site can be found at: http://InternetBizGuy.com where you can learn a little more about me and the breadth of things I am involved in across the internet landscape. I hone my skills in many online markets and then take that knowledge and help local DFW businesses implement what I find are working well for me and my clients.

Quick bio on me… I am a mechanical engineer and graduated from Texas A&M in 1976. I spent the first 30 years of my career as an entrepreneur in the process control industry with a specialty in flow measurement devices (flowmeters). I was awarded a number of patents for my designs and built a flowmeter company over the course of a 16 year period. I eventually sold that business to Roper Industries, a multi-billion dollar public company in Atlanta, GA.

I then moved into the non-profit world in 2003 and was the Executive Director for the Biblical Studies Foundation and the related for-profit publishing company, the Biblical Studies Press. These organizations operate primarily as internet-based ministries at: http://Bible.org. It was at Bible.org that I really learned the power and potential of using the internet to take your message and products to a global audience. Bible.org has grown to be one of the largest and most influential internet-based ministries in the world. I was blessed to be a part of their success.

Since January of 2008 I have personally spent well over $250,000 in internet marketing products, services, training, and seminars. I say this just so you will know how committed I am personally to gaining the knowledge and skills required to operate at a high level in the internet world. You are now the beneficiary of this investment! With over 15 years of experience marketing products and services online at your disposal, it is my hope that Jim and I and the team of partners here at InternetBizServices.com can serve you well in your pursuit of excellence online.

Best of Success!


jim hummel 100 Who & Why

Thank you for taking the time to look at our website.  So, here is a little bit of my background and also some background on what brought Dave and me together to build Internet Biz Services.   First, to use one of my favorite quotes … “just the facts, ma’am” (Sgt. Joe Friday, Dragnet):

  • 35+ years in many aspects of business – business owner, sales and marketing management, software designer and developer, administration management, project management … even did several years of 100% commission sales
  • Other business stuff – taught as an Adjunct Professor for SMU MBA program – Cox School of Business, served on several technology advisory boards and Certified Toastmaster
  • Undergrad degree in History and Masters Degree in Computer Science ( I know – that is very confusing – a true combo “left brain-right brain” guy)
  • Other personal stuff – married, blessed with three children and one grandchild (so far!), coached baseball for many years, like to run, golf, bowl, read and active in church ministry

I met Dave several years ago when he was the Executive Director of a large online ministry.  We would meet periodically to discuss various business ideas and we saw that our business friendship and personal friendship were growing.  When Dave was led to start his successful InternetBizGuy venture a year ago, he invited me to accelerate my learning more about the Internet marketing world… feeding me websites to evaluate, articles to read and training to attend.  I had some experience already in this field, particularly in the area of web analytics.

We both had the desire to work together and we had complimentary passions and backgrounds… it was just a matter of time before our vision clarified… and Internet Biz Services was launched.

So, if you need help with making sure your internet marketing strategy really delivers business value… if you need an internet business partner who knows both the internet and business… then you’ve landed at the right website.

Or if you just need someone to fill a golf foursome for a good fund-raising cause… give me a call.
