SmarterChaos Turns Five
This episode of Chaos Makes Sense kicks off with Matt revealing that, as of February 3, 2015, SmarterChaos is now five years old. Matt has been doing affiliate marketing for the last 15 years, so a third of his career so far has been spent building SmarterChaos.
Kimberly says five years is the golden mark because if you make it to five years you’re going to stick. Matt agrees and says that so many companies are around for a few years then they burn out, run out of funding, or grow too quickly and implode.
Matt talks about how he thought of starting SmarterChaos. He was looking at Michael Porter’s value chain model and then started thinking, “Where am I going to add value in this world?”
Matt says he had just finished reading an entrepreneurship book that introduced him to the concept of working on your business rather than working in your business. He put this together with the concept of building something that actually adds value to an ecosystem. With these, he started thinking about how affiliate marketing worked.
SmarterChaos Creates the Easy Button for Advertisers
- What if there was a way you could easily enter into the advertising space?
- What if you could have someone to guide you into the steps you need to do to become an affiliate marketer?
- What if you could have a marketing guide who was very knowledgeable, had all the right relationships, knew the technologies, handle the accounting, put together all the fraud mitigation, etc.?
Matt says if you come into the marketing space, you could start on your own and do all the things mentioned above. On the other hand, you can hire an expert to do it for you.
