We wanted to have a system that offers turnkey rakeback sites, turnkey free bankroll sites, non-incentivized poker affiliate marketing campaigns and much more up THREE MONTHS AGO! Then we revised it to September 1st. Guess what – there’s not a chance we’re going to make that deadline either.Why? And more importantly, why am I telling you?I’m telling you because we want to share with our partners, friends, and the poker affiliate marketing community what we struggle with. We want to publicize our statements to each other. We want to have a record of all the effort that went into building the first true poker affiliate network.Why isn’t it up yet? Plainly, because we have no idea what we’re doing.Oh, we know marketing and we know software and we know code. We know how to make money online and we know how to help others make money online. We’ve been building successful online properties for years. We currently have 200 publishers and they all have working systems. Many are making real money.What we don’t know is how to completely work together as a team to produce feature after feature and add one huge project on top of another. It’s one thing when it’s two guys building a startup out of their garage. It’s another to have 75 employees and thousands of partners. We’re somewhere in between.So we, as management, put a ton of pressure on tech. Get it done! Do it! Why doesn’t this work? Should we just outsource this whole thing?We pressured them into rolling out a huge upgrade three months ago. It was too early and it took weeks to weed out the bugs. After it was live. Won’t do that again.We threw Chad into the role of project manager, responsible for the whole thing. He didn’t have any experience in project management, but we saw his potential. (Still do, most days 😉 ) Who doesn’t love a good trial by fire?Management of this company wants it all and wants it all now! That’s what keeps us ahead of the curve. But how to get there isn’t a straight line. It’s trial and error.To our credit, what we put out is quality. It works and it makes people money. A LOT of money. We just don’t put out enough and don’t do it quickly enough. Last Thursday, for example, the new and improved publisher dashboard was supposed to be live. Today is Tuesday. WHERE IS IT? And obviously I assume this pushes back the whole roll-out schedule?Chad, in his response, is going to provide his perspective.Bottom line, we will reach our goals, and we’re going to keep getting faster and more efficient as we go. We guarantee it. Hope you enjoy reading about our screw-ups along the way.-mgmt
