About Me

I'm Jeff Raab, Nice To Meet You!

Welcome! My name is Jeff Raab, it’s great to meet you. Here’s a little bit about me:

My goal in life is to become a better “connector”. A connector of people, resources and ideas. I’m open to any form of contact, so reach out to me if interested and I will help in any way I can.

One of my biggest heroes is Seth Godin. I own all of his books, and I’m a member of his Triiibe.

I am the founder of SearchSandbox.com, my own agency focused on search engine marketing & affiliate marketing. I still take on the occasional client project or two, but most of my efforts are focused on building out my own web portfolio.

Prior to founding SearchSandbox, I worked directly for a number of pioneering internet companies including StoneAge.com (Automotive), Car.com (Automotive), Autobytel.com (Automotive), HomeRoute.com (Real Estate), DebtXS.com (Finance) and LiveDeal.com (Classifieds).

My day job is time spent working for Detroit Trading Company, the single largest online automotive lead marketplace currently trading more than 400,000 leads every month. Joining DTC brings me back to my internet roots – focusing on lead generation/customer acquisition and being reunited with some of the smartest colleagues and friends from StoneAge.com. If you’re involved in automotive lead generation (new car or finance) or you’re thinking of getting involved – get in touch with me – I can really help you out.

I have had the privilege of working for a number of successful entrepreneurs, an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award Winner (Great Lakes Region/Technology) and two Inc.500 Companies (before it became the Inc.5000!).

I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry from the University of Michigan – GO BLUE!

If I can help in any way (answer a question, make a connection, share my thoughts) please feel free to contact me at any time:
