Despite the fact that it consistently ranked on Google for job and career terms, thus generating more than 100,000 monthly visitors, he decided to close it due to the fact that he didn’t have enough money to market or monetize it. As he would put it, he had to learn marketing because he had no choice. He got good at it as time went on, but it would take one more step before he would pursue digital marketing as a career.
