MEET PHIL SMITH
Welcome to my website. My name is Phil Smith and as you are reading this, I am most likely sitting at home in my jams, working away. Yes, you read that correctly, I spend most of my time working in my jams and as you can imagine, my commute is torturous.
10 years ago, after getting fed up with corporate America, I decided to figure out how to make as much money from home with no employees, no boss and the freedom to do what I want when I wantAs you can probably guess, I figured it out. I am currently one of the largest online lead generators in the business loan space and have recently decided to start teaching people how to follow in my footsteps.
I am starting a movement “I Work In My Jams” so I can show others how to get out of the rat race and build a business around the lifestyle they want to liveI believe everyone should enjoy life and have the freedom to do what they want, when they want. If you want to join the movement and work in your jams, then watch my webinar.
Since 1998, I started 3 companies from scratch and all 3 were acquiredI have also consulted for many others companies, from Fortune 500 to small local businesses. I have experience in pretty much all facets of business, but there are certain things I consider myself an expert in:
My experience with Canrock Ventures – early stage investment fund (2010 – 2012)In 2010, Canrock acquired my digital marketing company and I partnered with them to grow the business and we changed the company name to SEO Pledge. Canrock is an incubator for startup technology companies. I was the CEO of SEO Pledge, a Canrock portfolio company, and was the Chief Digital Strategist for Canrock Ventures. SEO Pledge was acquired by Didit Corporation in 2013.

How I got started in my career (1998 – Present)I started my career in the web hosting industry. I started We Link You Internet Services in 1998. We jumped into the ISP business selling dial up service (remember dial up?), then we entered the co-location and dedicated server hosting business. After the company grew, it was sold 2005 to Access Integrated Technologies, a publicly traded company. In 2005 I joined FalconStor Software (NASDAQ:FALC) and created a new software-as-a-service division. The goal was to sell FalconStor’s software as a monthly service. This is where I took my business development skills to the next level and closed partnerships with HP, Intel, AT&T, SAVVIS and IBM.
At the end of 2006 I started an Internet marketing company and grew it one client at a time. I help companies grow their online revenue by providing SEO, SEM, social media, affiliate marketing, blog & article marketing, video and other strategies. I grew the company until I met Jim Estill at Canrock Ventures in 2010 and they acquired the company. I was CEO of Canrock’s digital marketing company for 2 years, then I decided to go back out on my own again.
