Eric Porat, a digital marketing expert and online entrepreneur, is determined to change the online advertising industry and make it easy for advertisers to get their products in front of interested potential customers. One Acquire Media is set to launch a revolutionary new feature for advertisers in mid-November – they will be able to target consumers in “real-time” based on the products they search for. This gives advertisers the opportunity to competitively bid on these users in order to increase conversions and potential sales.
The concept, easy in theory, is unbelievably hard to create in real life. “I always had this idea that online advertising could be much easier, just like online shopping. Any advertiser can register on our platform, and easily pick the perfect fit for their advertising needs.” – Eric Porat

“This is the truth that none of the ‘gurus’ trying to sell their courses will tell you. The reality is that the internet has gotten hyper-competitive over the last two decades, and you can’t possibly compete if you haven’t mastered at least one skill. It can be Digital Marketing (SEO, SMM, PPC, Email), development (front-end, backend, AI, ML, data science), analytics – anything that will give you an edge over your future competition,” Porat explained. “I am a big supporter of learning by doing, and that’s why I think that the best way to start is to create your own website.”
Soon thereafter, Eric Porat decided to re-launch ibeatyou.com. This project is very intriguing as it has great aspirations. This startup will allow users to compete with one another and with Eric’s background, it’s sure to gain traction fairly quickly.
“At first, I was surprised to find out that there was a market for buying and selling websites in the early 2000’s. The market has grown significantly since then, and there are endless opportunities to grow here.”
