1. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from? How old are you?
I'm 25 years old. I was born in South Florida and raised in North Florida. I'm married with 2 children (6 year old boy & 2 year old girl). My wife is a full time college student at the University of Florida who also works for me part time in accounting. In my free time I enjoy watching weekend football (go Gators!), and mainly trying to spend time with my family.
2. How long have you been in affiliate marketing and how did you get involved?
I've been in different types of online marketing since 1999 but didn't really start making good money until 2007 with an incentive rewards site. After selling that business in the summer of 2008 I dabbled in affiliate marketing and made some really good connections with people in the industry, mainly other affiliate network owners. I've been designing websites and programming since I was 15 years old... So, as a programmer, my initial intentions were to create a robust platform and then lease it to the bigger affiliate networks. However, the more I became familiar with everything in this industry the more I actually wanted to run one. It wasn't long before I started writing up a business plan and getting to work on creating my own affiliate network. The word "PeerFly" has no real meaning but I used it as the name because I already owned the domain and I honestly didn't have the $10 to get another domain name at the time. I started building the PeerFly platform in the fall of 2008 and then launched it in December.
3. How long was it before you realized you could live off your affiliate income?
It was almost immediately. I came in at a perfect time when we could incentivize rebill offers. The first month in business was amazing. The only overhead I had was a $120 monthly server bill.
4. What has been your biggest success to date?
I'd say the absolute biggest success I've had is creating something that is growing roots. Yeah, we're only two years old but we've seen a lot of growth and huge amount of success in our short business life. Our roots our growing and now so is our branches.
5. Tell us a little bit about PeerFly and what you do over there?
PeerFly is a cost-per-action affiliate network. We extend the sales force of merchants, service providers, and product owners in the online world for free. They only pay when we deliver results rather than the promise to deliver results. We have nearly 200 client relationships, over 20k publisher accounts, and we're growing at an enormous rate.
6. How many employees does PeerFly has and where are your offices located?
This may surprise you but we're actually quite small - only 6 people including myself and we have no central headquarters. We have a small work force due to the benefit of technology. A lot of tasks and stuff that other affiliate networks hire people for, we replace with automated processes (think robots) that do an even better job. We're working on an offer recommendation algorithm right now that will slap your typical affiliate manager in the face.
My employees and I all work from the comfort of our home offices. I guess you could say we have 3 offices in Florida, 1 office in Missouri and 1 office in Illinois because that's where all of my guys live!
We will probably all come together eventually and start expanding our departments but for right now, things couldn't be any better.
