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 52 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 20 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
- Internet Marketing (f.e. GeorgesReviews.com and GeorgesHacks.com)
- Small Business Owners (Blogging, WordPress, Software & Tools)
Strategic Online Marketing Coaching
For small business owners, product creators, or affiliates who need some strategic online marketing coaching, you can hire me as coach.
I offer two types of services:
- Written contact ($150.00 per hour). Here we communicate via email, Skype messages, or FB Messenger. Just ask all your questions, and I’ll answer them (usually within 24 hours).
- Live contact ($200.00 per hour). Here we set a time slot and we do communicate “live” via Skype, Telephone, or Google Live/Hangouts.
After each session, I’ll send you an invoice via PayPal.
(And of course, you won’t need to spend an hour of my time. You’ll only pay for actual usage of my time)
What kind of coaching can you expect?
Of course, I’m not a guru in every online marketing topic. But you can ask me anything about your online marketing strategies, plans, tactics, campaigns, and every aspect where you are struggling at the moment.
No matter whether it will be getting traffic, creating content, optimize conversations, or using the proper techniques and (software) tools…
You name it. And if I can’t help you myself, I probably know the right person to help you out.
I love helping other people and see them grow (and their business).
So don’t hesitate to contact me or connect with me.
