Tell us briefly about your journey and then we’ll dive in into this exciting …
Derral: Yeah, for sure, Jacob.
For me, I always have been a part of marketing and an entrepreneur since at a young age. That’s what I decided to study in school. I actually got my degree in marketing and advertising.
When I left I went to work as an Assistant Director for a public relations company and one of the contracts that we had was with the regional hospital. I really just didn’t like it. I hated the people telling me how much I could make. I was able to save a whole bunch of money, I ask for a $10,000 raise and they wouldn’t grant it to me so I basically quit and started my own company. That was back in 1999.
I basically started out as someone that was doing internet marketing, graphic and web design and a little bit of video at that time. As it increased, I was trying to really find the best ways to generate traffic online and I would do the top techniques and so on.
Well, in 2005 I was on Craigslist and I saw this ad for a new video platform. I was always interested in videos so I actually clicked on the ad and it took me to youtube.com. Not a lot of people know this but YouTube was actually giving away free iPods – those big, old brick iPods.
