The results are in!
We are extremely proud to announce that Convert2Media has been ranked 111th on the 2012 Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America. We are also 17th in the Advertising and Marketing industry and the 7th fastest-growing company in Central Florida.
Michael Durham and I will be in attendance for the Inc. 500|5000 Conference & Awards Ceremony in Phoenix, Ariz., on October 5th to accept the hardware.
Firstly and most importantly, we could not have done this without our amazing publishers and advertisers. We want to thank you all ...
Ahh seems like just yesterday I was sitting in my underwear, refreshing stats, and deciding which new offer I was going to get ready and test. Yes, the good ole days when everything was simple. Fast forward today to Co-Managing an Affiliate Network, handling, managing, and inspiring hundreds of affiliate marketers from all walks of the world, payments going in, payments going out...ahhh I just want to sit back and remember the basics of what it was like when I was an affiliate.
Here are 5 Rules for a productive affiliate. Although ...
Before we start this post out, I feel like I need to share some things here. I've been out of the blogging game for quite some time. This break is worse than the one I took a couple of years ago when I was blogging at Cashtactics. I got burned out there, but this burnout was what I hope to be the worst one ever. A lot of things happened in the months that I took off. Business built, business dropped, business climbed again. Regulations, restrictions, affiliates giving up, advertisers quitting ...
Before we start this post, for all the non-Convert2Media publishers who dont know me we may need a flash of credibility here.
<Insert credibility here>
I myself was a publisher for 3 years making a living online. I know the grind. I know what is possible from the Affiliate trenches.
I coach, train and manage millionaires. From Yearly Millionaires to Monthly Millionaires - I've had the priviledge of working with them.
I Moderate one of the largest Internet Marketing Forums Online which has quite a few Millionaires that I know personally.
I also own my own ...
To celebrate our recent ranking on the Inc. 500 list, the Convert2Media and Mobooka crews hit Orlando Kart Center on Friday for our first annual Race Day. It was glorious.
So yes, we did race go-karts (not Steve’s Lotus) but these were some very serious go-karts. These were Tony Karts.
If you’re like me and have never heard of them, Tony Karts aren’t your typical “family fun” go-karts. They are imported from Italy and they drive up to 45 miles per hour, which is pretty crazy given how small and lightweight they are.
These carts are designed for Formula One-style competition and are not to be messed around with. The owner of Orlando Kart Center, the location of our races, is the only Tony Kart importer in the United States.
Once we all had chosen our helmets and set up our race driver names, the competition was on.
Check out this footage of the final race!
Hunter West of Mobooka (a.k.a. CallMeMaybe) took home the gold trophy after shutting out C2M Network Manager Mike Kerry (a.k.a. GetSmokedFool) for the win. Jason Kunisch of Mobooka (a.k.a. DerpMcGirk) took third place.
Sorry, Mike and Jason, but to quote infamous race car driver Ricky Bobby, “If you ain’t first, you’re last.” Congrats, Hunter, for taking home the gold!
Honorable mentions go to Business Development Manager Robert Dolan (a.k.a. El Arbol) who had the best lap time at 70.865 seconds, putting his top speed at 40.6 miles per hour.
I also have to give a major shout out to the newest member of Convert2Media, our amazing Campaign Manager Melissa Clarady (a.k.a Whitearican) who bravely represented the girls of C2M and sucessfully beat out four of the guys. (After our first two races, programmer Megan and I decided to choose life and opted out of the remaining races.) Melissa will surely be in the winner’s circle in the next go-around.
Here’s the final rankings:
The racers’ names are as follows:
1. CallMeMaybe – Hunter West
2. GetSmokedFool – Mike Kerry
3. DerpMcGirk – Jason Kunisch
4. El Arbol – Robert Dolan
5. HoweMoney – Steve Howe
6. Super Donkey Punch – Kiley Lenstrom
7. Cam – Camren Majors
8. Stylee – Payton Jass
9. Obry – Obry!
10. Inhale My Fumes – Matt Hoyler
11) Whitearican – Melissa Clarady
12) Jim Whitney (The Man Himself)
13) BreesNuts – Ryan Hurry
14) Fat Boy – Art Kerry
15) Fraudy Audi – Audi Kowalski
