If you know me, then you know I have been working with a team since my start in paying for traffic over 2 years ago (1 designer, 1 grunt worker). Since then things gotten a bit bigger, and today in order to make $XXXX-XXXXX per day, I truly gotta hussle which won’t be possible without my very dedicated and awesome work force!
I’ve posted about my media buying team last year – you can check that post here. Showcasing our old office that was on the 4th floor in downtown.
I’ve purchased a 4700 square feet half finished building, and we now use that to get the day to day operations done. If you read my blog, you might have seen some updates regarding this, but now I want to make an official post.
Many of you have been wondering, is “THE CASTLE” done? The answer is yes, it is – in fact it’s been since December 1st of last year. Well the interior that is. My media buying team has snow balled 3x over and now we’re running out of room and might need to start using the basement suite too! Since taking these pics on March 13th, we hired half a dozen additional people, so the pics are already outdated. LOL
Why the crazy expansion? Well because of problems I’m solving. (Thanks Problem Solving 101 book!)
So what are these problems? Well, affiliate marketing is getting more competitive than ever before.

Whilst before it’d be okay to take a few days to ‘get setup’ now time is of the essence. In order to solve this problem, I developed a system where creative angles, banners, landers, traffic source setup, tracker setup, QC & verification all happens simultaneously so we can launch, launch and launch faster than most people out there.
You’ve guessed it, that means 1 person that only works on angles, one person who designs banners and make variations of, one person who is in charge of landers, a worker who sets up the campaigns on the traffic source, and a worker that handles the tracker part, and another worker that does quality control & verification testing to make sure everything in the funnel is correct, optimized and links are pointed properly to the right offers.
Many might be wondering, by why so much people? Can’t a few REALLY GOOD people do that? The answer is YES, but!
In my experience when 1 person does just 1 thing vs multitasking they can specialize in that efficiency, find tools to improve the speed, and perfect the process so fast it gets done faster than expected.
I won’t lie to you, if you are MR Decisive, chances are you aren’t making much or any money at all. You are losing, you are screwing around with tiny little budgets testing this one day, that the next.
Charles Ngo said affiliates with a team are the future, and I agree 100%. While some are busy trying their luck with decisive over a period of a week to get an offer up, in my office we will launch 50 offers, find the best ones, scale it and milk it (in a week) – small affs will discover the best of these offers after we done volume and it appears on the top revenue report of CPA networks like ClickDealer, but chances are by then its too late.
Here are some pics from the new office from the inside. Exterior pics are coming soon too…
