The main purpose of this webpage is to give some background information about George Eeken (which can also be found on George Eeken).
I am 51 years old, Dutch, born and grown up in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Nowadays, I am living together with my girlfriend José in Voorhout (30 km away from Amsterdam and near Noordwijk). We have no kids (but love them).
I love jogging, squash and snowboarding (I used to play soccer and run marathons). I like watching soccer and especially Ajax, my favorite team. I am interested in human behavior and read a lot about personal development, business and economics. I am a certified NLP Master Practitioner.
I have a master in Business Economics and started my career in 1991 as Assistant Accountant at PWC. In the year 2000, after several jobs as Controller and Finance Manager, I wanted to be self-employed and became (Financial) Interim Manager. Together with my girlfriend we started AVFS Financial Interim Management.
End 2005, I started my own recruitment agency, Challenge Group. I built it up from scratch to a small company with a staff of 25 people.
After the financial crisis in 2008 hit me and my business dramatically, I had to close my business early 2009.
Later that year I picked up the business and started Next Challenge. What’s in a name?
Besides acting as agency for executive interim management assignments, I changed my activities more and more into Consulting & Coaching and …
Internet & Affiliate Marketing
So as I operated from my home, I had time for trying out other income streams. First, as I was always interested in the financial markets, I became a full-time day trader for almost two years.
Although I did make some money, I was too boring to watch my screens all day.
But making money online got my attention. What if I could earn a decent income by selling products or services online?
I decided to explore the world of internet and affiliate marketing.
After some struggling to find out how everything works, my primary income comes nowadays from internet and affiliate marketing.
I earn my commissions from more than 30 websites (international English-speaking markets). Mostly product review websites or help/ how to… blogs. I also manage several Facebook Fanpages, Google+ pages and YouTube channels.
I use free (SEO) and paid traffic methods (especially PPV, PPC (Facebook Ads) and Media Buying) and do some email marketing (by sending emails to my subscribers).
My main niches:
- Personal Development
- Health & Fitness
- Internet Marketing (f.e. GeorgesReviews.com)
- Small Business Owners (Blogging, WordPress, Software & Tools)
Recently I’m also active as (Internet) Marketing Consultant helping clients to get online traffic and leads by sharing my Internet marketing and Social Media knowledge and experience.
I love helping other people and see them grow (and their business).
So don’t hesitate to contact me or connect with me.
