The last year has FLOWN by as today we celebrate the one-year anniversary of our Private Community here on IMGrind.com. 365 days ago Ruck and I started out to create a coaching and mentoring program that would allow Affiliates, Advertisers, and Entrepreneurs leverage their online businesses to the next level. Since then we’ve held countless live events across the United States, exclusive workshops in our Kansas City offices, as well as numerous networking events and think tanks.
IMGrind is an excellent example of how passion can fuel a business and exactly why I don’t feel like I’ve “worked” a day in my life. I do what I do because I love it and over the last year I’ve made countless friendships and relationships that will continue to grow for years to come. Ruck and I have both been very impressed with the quality of members we have retained as well as new people that have came in and shared valuable knowledge. Nothing is more rewarding than to see our members succeed and be able to actually quit their day job or generate an additional income working online.
Things change very quickly on the Internet. Just think about all of the things that have happened in the performance marketing industry over the last year. Huge companies have gone under, people who were once trust worthy, turned heel, and numerous partnerships have dissolved.
As the industry continues to change IMGrind aims to become “the” go to resource when dealing with all things concerning making money online. This is why we have expanded our blog and Private Community out to a performance based advertising network, Revived Media, and a patent pending mobile tracking solution, iMobiTrax. We feel by educating publishers to drive quality leads and sales to advertisers we can produce optimal quality at Revived Media and using our mobile tracking technology we allow many options to explore areas of high return on investment.
Team IMGrind has grown a lot from July 1, 2011. We now have a team five to assist with day-to-day operations and a shout-out is definitely necessary for the success our team has helped us to gain:
