A milestone in our history
On October 2, 2023, we celebrated AdsMasters' 5th birthday at the Rheinturm in Düsseldorf. This day was not only a reason for us to celebrate, but also a moment to pause and make plans for the future.
The first steps towards independence
My journey began in 2017 when I was working as a freelancer alongside a part-time job. In August 2018, I then made the decision to quit my part-time job. From October 1, 2018, I focused entirely on AdsMasters. In hindsight, hesitating to go fully self-employed was a mistake. But as they say: you never stop learning.
Our learning curve: typical beginner mistakes and how we overcame them
We have not managed without stumbling blocks either:
- Unclear positioning: In the beginning, we found it difficult to position ourselves clearly in the market.
- False customers: We accepted customers who didn't really fit in with us.
- Personnel issue: We brought the first team members on board too late.
- Working method: We have often worked too much in the company and too little on corporate development.
- pricing policy: We have often sold our services below value.
Successes that make us proud
Despite these challenges, we can look back with pride. The last 5 years have been the most instructive and exciting in my career and for our entire team. We have supported over 150 customers and generated eCommerce sales of more than 250 million euros on Amazon.
Changes in working methods and corporate culture
In 2019 and 2020, I realized my dream of working remotely and moved to Budapest. This has also strengthened the flexibility and adaptability of our team.
What's next? The transformation to a profit-first Amazon agency
Now the next phase begins for AdsMasters. We are developing into a profit-first Amazon agency. This change is hugely important both for AdsMasters and for me personally. Our planning horizons have expanded from 1-2 months to 5-10 years.
Thank you to everyone who is involved
I would like to thank everyone who has been and continues to be part of this incredible journey. We are really looking forward to the opportunities that lie ahead.
Here's to the next 5 successful years! 🥂
