crazyegg.com is an excellent idea. how do people code things like these..
okay this time it’s not like an idea hit you. it’s like you searched for an idea. how do people do like that, isn’t that highly uncertain. but there are some thing’s which we can understand only by diving in
let’s talk about the crazyegg.com founder
Neil Patel (entrepreneur)
Neil started his online career very young, before finishing high school, attempting to build a clone of the Monster.com recruitment site. His site never quite succeeded as a jobs site, however Neil became very good at driving traffic to it using search engines.
After graduating from High School Neil started college, where he found himself one day doing a talk on search engines. In the audience was a man who owned a battery business, who hired Neil to help with his online lead generation. Suddenly Neil was a traffic consultant earning $3,500 a month.
Eventually as a result of Neil’s work, almost 50% of the leads to the $50 million dollar battery business were originating online. This lead to Neil taking on more traffic and online lead generation clients, and a few short months later he was making more than $20,000 a month, all while still a teenager!
Eventually Neil grew tired of the consulting business primarily because of all the sales work involved, and he decided to switch to software. This lead to the creation of CrazyEgg, which did well enough to attract a $6 million buyout offer within six months of the launch, yet Neil and his partner declined it (you can find out why if you listen to the interview).
KISSmetrics was born after the struggle Neil and his partner had in finding venture funding for CrazyEgg. Investors wanted something bigger – a bigger vision with real scale potential. KISSmetrics hit the spot and they were able to secure $4 million in funding.
