Chris Guthrie got had his interest in online business peaked by a pop-up ad on video game. From there, he started a journey into learning how to really make money online. Lucky for Chris, he started creating income before he actually needed it, and by the time he needed it, he had been let go from his job.

From there, Chris found it to be a better strategy to build software rather than to just affiliate mark. While affiliate marketing still remained a large tool in his tool box, he began focusing on software to make the lives of other marketers easy.

With the advent of Amazon private labeling, Chris very quickly saw success selling on Amazon. It wasn’t long before he saw the pain point of other sellers and created Salesbacker. Join us as we dig into his journey.
