Two Guys, One Living Room

Hello! We’re both extremely excited you’re interested in us! Who are we, exactly? Well, since that’s why you’re here, let’s dive into it!

Two Guys in the Living Room, located in Prairie Village, Kansas, is a boutique digital marketing firm that specializes in a unique blend of Local Search Engine Optimization and Content Marketing.

But what does that MEAN?

No matter if you’re operating a retail location, professional office, or any other business that people physically visit, we can help bring you more clients.

Who We Are

The “TwoGuysInTheLivingRoom” are Bryan Marvin and Peter Soto. We’ve been friends for 15 years and always wanted to start a business together. During that time, we developed skills in a variety of industries including real estate, technology development, journalism, data analytics, call center management, project management, customer service, multimedia production, technical writing, sales, IT and many different disciplines that fall under the umbrella of “digital marketing.”

We both have degrees from the University of Kansas (Obligatory “ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK”) as well as a wealth of startup experience. As entrepreneurs ourselves, we are passionate about helping small to medium sized businesses grow online.

Contrary to popular belief, we don’t spend every waking second at work. Though we do seem to spend a lot of time together outside of it playing basketball, weightlifting, and enjoying the many delicious bars and restaurants in the Kansas City Metro area.

KU basketball and the Kansas City Chiefs are the teams we support the most. Drop us a line if you are ever in town during a game and we will make sure you have an authentic Kansas City sports experience.

What We Believe

Part of the reason we’ve always wanted to start our own company is the experience we’ve had with past employers. We’ve worked for some great companies and solved some difficult problems, but one thing has been consistent: we have tried to learn as much as we could while performing at the highest level.

We’ve had some great mentors during the last decade and they planted an idea in our minds. Own the work you do and you’ll never work a day in your life. Real ownership allows us to bring highly tailored solutions to our clients. It also allows us to carefully choose who we work with. Since what we do is not a “one size fits all” service, this selectivity is all the more important.

Above all, we want to work with good people who treat their employees how they deserve – with honesty, integrity, and generosity. 

Its All About Fun, Baby!

The thing is, we’re people and we don’t just work. While this website is primarily to give us a web presence and allow for potential and current clients to keep tabs on us, we also like to have fun and we’ll be damned if we won’t have fun with our own website. So if you’ve come for SEO and digital marketing thoughts, that’s awesome and we’re glad to have you! We will, however, occasionally throw in an article about basketball (Again, GO JAYHAWKS!), working out and dieting, or even random musings.

If we haven’t scared you off yet, go ahead and join our newsletter at the bottom of the page so we can send you updates on the blog and anything else we deem relevant!
