acquired by eBay

I was fortunate enough to join the in 2003 as the 2nd person in Internet Marketing. was still small but growing fast when I joined. I was tasked with taking over the affiliate marketing program and expanding it in addition to taking on Search Engine Marketing and traffic acquisition. By late 2004, had grown to over $40 million in revenues and was acquired by eBay in 2005 (announced in Dec. 2004). It was eBay’s 2nd largest acquisition next to PayPal.

My experience there gave me a first hand account of rapid growth and the effect it has not just on Internet Marketing expansion, but also on the company and the personnel as a whole.
