The first website I created was back in 2005. It only took me a few months to realize that what initially was just meant to be a hobby site could be turned into a money making project, which I did.
It didn’t take long for me to realize that there were many more opportunities to be explored, so soon afterwards I launched my webmaster forum. Thanks to that I connected with Sandis, who then introduced me to the affiliate marketing game.
At that time I created my first projects focused around affiliate marketing. I promoted many products through a few different affiliate networks but spent most of my time promoting MoreNiche, mainly because I liked how they supported affiliates.
Soon afterwards my passion also became my career when I joined MoreNiche in 2007 as a Junior Affiliate Manager. Since then I have worked hard and continually been promoted through the company. In 2013 I agreed with MoreNiche that I would start a JV based project where I would become Managing Director of Paydot, a new affiliate network. I worked on this for a few years turning it into a self-serviced business with a yearly turnover over £2 million.
In 2015 I decided that I need a break so I moved away from the network side of the business. But after sitting on my butt for a few months doing nothing, I decided it’s about time I began something new. So I started a couple of affiliate projects which I did reasonably well with throughout 2016 and then successfully sold in 2017.
Since then I have mainly been helping merchants launch and run affiliate campaigns on a freelance basis, until July 2018 when I rejoined my old team here at MoreNiche.
Defiance and The Pianist
I live next to a forest and love nature so I’d say my backyard at home. But one other place I was amazed by is the Plitvice National Park in Croatia.
MoreNiche Affiliate of the Year 2007
I like wakeboarding
Myself, as long as I’m healthy and happy
Good-hearted and loyal
Sold two large affiliate sites in 2017 and had a successful run with Paydot affiliate network on which I worked for two and a half years.
I like fishing, wakeboarding and spending quality time with family and friends.
Long term vision
When I was working on Paydot, I used to do pretty much everything on a network level. Whilst being super busy with typical day-to-day tasks, I still managed to help affiliates grow from complete newbies to real performers generating more than 20,000 PCM. One of them was as young as 17 at the time.
