Lisa Picarille, Editor-in-Chief of Revenue Magazine and myself recently sat down for a chat with Sam Harrelson, Founder of Cost Per News.
Sam Harrelson is an independent e-commerce consultant based in Western North Carolina. With a wide academic background including studies in Ancient Near Eastern Archaeology, String Theory and Divinity School, Sam views the online marketing world through a wide lens and focuses on the industry’s ability to reach individuals, form communities and create social memes.
Instead of “consumers,” Sam sees individuals as producers of content and investigates how developing technologies and applications furthers the ability of people to participate in marketing efforts rather than just consume.
Sam has over four years in the affiliate marketing industry with experience as a publisher, email marketer, website owner, Director of Business Development, Senior Vice President, and advertiser along with previously writing articles for the Digital Moses Confidential and ReveNews.
Sam started up Cost Per News in October 2006.
