friday hangout, carlos castellanos, Bob Ostrom

Brad is a self-taught marketer with more than 15 years of online marketing experience. In 1997 he launched a successful adult entertainment website shortly after dropping out of high school. He worked in the online adult entertainment industry for over 10 years and was on the cutting edge of many of the technologies that we now take for granted such as streaming video and online chat.

In 2007, he made the switch to more “mainstream” marketing and now sells over 300 intangible marketing products which are all run by employees and automated systems, leaving him time to pursue new business ventures and develop new products.

In 2012 Brad published his first book: Chronic Marketer which became a bestseller internationally.
