tell you the reason I started GuruDAQ in April 2004. I'd been
a web developer for over 4 years. I provided bespoke shopping
carts and web sites for clients. I soon realized that if I
could find a good product to sell, I could become self reliant
and be able to work the hours I chose. (The Dream).
did I know that when I typed in those 5 words "How To
Sell Stuff Online" that I would be caught up in a whirlwind
of self proclaimed experts who were trying to outdo each other
with the next great "Internet Marketing Breakthrough".
to fathom out who were the people to listen to and who were
the snake oil sellers became a bit of a quest. After a couple
of months of weeding out the good from the bad I came across
the idea of ranking the ones I found and knew to be respectable
marketers by their popularity online.
You may have seen the Alexa Website. It ranks websites by
how many people visit them. It became the benchmark that I
could use to rank individual experts and see if they really
were getting a large following of visitors to their site.
secured the domain name GuruDAQ.com and began to update the
site. Each time I discovered a new expert, I'd put them on
the site. And the site would then track their popularity.
would start to send in the names of experts and I was struggling
to keep up with the submissions at one point (for every respectable
marketer I probably got ten spam entries!)
name that was on the list to be checked was Ken Evoy. I'd
seen his name a few times from browsing the web but it seemed
to blur into all the other names I was researching at the
time. That was until I checked his background, and his popularity.
realised at the time that if I ranked him by the same criteria
as all the other experts that he would be 200% higher than
his nearest rival! There was something different about
how this guy ran his business!
can see the site here when I added him in June 2004!
for 4 years Ken Evoy has been at the very top of the list.
he's stayed at the top can be answered simply.
