My name is Shane Eubanks and I’ve been involved with internet marketing since 1996…longer than Google! Over the past 20+ years, I’ve built numerous successful internet businesses, sold one for a six-figure deal, built another site that got a six-figure offer 6 months after launching, managed internet marketing for a multi-billion dollar company, helped numerous businesses of all sizes succeed online, and left the corporate world in 2013 to become a full-time entrepreneur doing what I love. I’ve finally stepped “out of the shadows” to share my real-world, winning strategies with you.
So many people have helped me throughout my career and it is now time for me to give back…and, so, Genuine Internet Marketing was born. What you find here isn’t hype…none of it is theoretical ideas that I’m testing. I’m sharing my best tried & true tactics that I have personally used to grow businesses for over 20 years. These strategies can absolutely have a massive, positive impact on your internet marketing…and I can’t wait to share them with you!
Why I do what I do
My name is Shane Eubanks and before I cover my background and experience, I should point out what motivates and pushes me to do what I do. Being a husband and father are two of my biggest “titles” in life and are what I strive to excel at. Spending time with my family is one of my driving motivators and I’ve been blessed with the success of internet marketing to be able to spend quality time with my family and even help my wife “retire” from elementary teaching to become a stay-at-home mom, which has always been one of her biggest goals in life.
Something you won’t find me doing is posing with checks or displaying my monthly income stats for the world to see. I’m not knocking other internet marketers that do that, it’s just that money isn’t the driving motivator for me and therefore is not what I want to “promote.” My success is based off the fulfillment my family and I have at the end of each day and the ability to go to bed at night and feel great about the previous hours we were awake and not have a pit in our stomach thinking about the “job” we have to go to, how we’re going to pay a bill, etc. You undoubtedly have your own goal for your internet business and the information you’ll find throughout this website can hopefully help you obtain that goal. I’ve been extremely blessed to obtain numerous personal goals using internet marketing and I love having the opportunity to share that knowledge with you!
Speaking of blessed, I wouldn’t be where I am today without the saving grace of God through my savior, Jesus Christ. I’ve been through more than I’ll go into here and I’ve made my fair share of dumb mistakes, but there is no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t be where I am today without faith. Everything I have is because of Him and I give Him all of the honor and glory. If you’d like to know more, please feel free to contact me.
My rookie year in internet marketing was 1996 as I started getting my feet wet with web design and development. It was mostly personal projects that generated little income, but I soon landed the opportunity to create an e-commerce website. That first major project was the starting point of my journey through internet marketing, which has now spanned well over a decade. Through the course of my career I have been involved with numerous successful websites including:
- Brick and mortar retail stores
- E-commerce shops
- Informational websites
- Educational websites
- Vacation destination websites
- Entertainment websites
- Non-profit organizations
- Fortune 500 companies
- Industrial manufacturers
- Facebook auctions
- and so many more
I’ve been involved with absolutely every aspect of building a website and online businesses:
- Initial planning
- Wireframing and drafts
- Conceptual design
- Database architecture
- Copywriting and content creation
- Photo manipulation
- Video production
- Audio production
- Server management
- Security implementation
- Email marketing
- Search Engine Optimization
- Search Engine Marketing
- Social Media
- Lead generation
- Sales funnel and conversion optimization
- Customer relationship management
Seriously…I’ve worn just about every hat there is to wear! Over the years, I’ve narrowed my focus down to strictly internet marketing and now delegate all of the other areas of my projects. I believe in focusing on your passions…because you’ll do what you love and love what you do…and the quality of your work will benefit as a result.
The information you will find on Genuine Internet Marketing is based off of 20+ years of experience being involved in numerous types of industries of varying sizes. If you’re looking for information on something that isn’t covered yet, please contact me and I’ll look into making it a future article!
After firmly realizing that internet marketing is what I wanted to focus my career on, I “attended” the Art Institute of Pittsburgh – Online Division and received a bachelor of science degree in Interactive Media Design with a President’s Award (perfect GPA) in 2006.
Now, that’s 4 years of late nights and hard work crammed into one run-on sentence, but I’m a firm believer in experience trumps education in the long run. Sure, you have to get your education somewhere but it’s what you do with it and what you learn along the way that will determine your success. Dig in and learn what you can, but the most important thing you can do is start putting that knowledge to use as soon as possible! Just do something…it doesn’t have to be perfect. You’ll learn as you go…and there are plenty of resources available on the internet to answer just about any question you’ll run into. Just jump in and get started!
One last thing…
It’s my sincere hope that what you get from Genuine Internet Marketing will help you succeed in your online business and will help you achieve the goals you have set for yourself. It takes work, commitment, sacrifice, frustration, thick skin, etc but it can be incredibly rewarding. Being able to pay off a debt, go on a vacation that’s completely paid for, earn money in your sleep, etc are all wonderful things and can be worth the long hours and late nights you may have to put in. Just don’t lose sight of your goals…it’s an amazing feeling when you finally achieve them!
God Bless and Stay Genuine!
