 ClickFuel, an Internet marketing services provider, has landed $2.5 million in Series A funding. Baird Venture Partners led the round.

After working in various executive positions at Monster Worldwide (which owns Monster.com), current CEO of ClickFuel Steve Pogorzelski founded ClickFuel with a team of other veterans from their former company.

The Boston-based startup promises to “fire up your business” by providing an intelligent marketing management tool based on the influence of the Internet. Comprised of a team of Internet-minded individuals, ClickFuel acknowledges that the Web has drastically transformed the ideal marketing strategy.

Currently focusing their efforts on search engine optimization and marketing, the startup seems to have solid ideas and recommendations for businesses seeking marketing campaign strategies, including advice on how to harness the increasing power of social media.

With this foundational investment from Baird Venture Partners, ClickFuel and its Internet-based strategy are beginning to show real potential in an increasing online world.

Pogorzelski, happy about his company’s new investments, said, “We look forward to leveraging Baird Venture Partners’ experience and network in the business services sector as we aggressively expand our industry presence and ultimately our customer base.”
