Michael Devlin began his career selling online in 2006. He started in the competitive sports nutrition market and learned the hard way that you can spend a lot of money on promoting your business. In fact, he invested over $130,000.00 for paid search in his first year alone! Instead of running for the hills, he learned to love e-commerce knowing the profits were there to be made. In the early years, as he ran the data and saw how much Amazon was coming up in searches, he realized he could not outrun Amazon. Eventually, because of the intense competition with Amazon for optimisation, Michael decided to put his products on Amazon. He was proven to be one of the best e-commerce marketers on the net. He is now teaching his e-commerce knowledge on how to take a physical product business from launch to producing over $41.2M in student sales and successes internationally to date. His site Mass Conversions is backed by a suite of innovative tools within Michael’s own proprietary software platform named Profits Engine.
