Mike Filsaime: The Michael Jordan Of Internet Marketing Shares How He Builds Buzz With Viral Marketing

When I recorded this interview with Mike, I wanted to focus more on Mike’s history and how he went from car salesman working 70 hours a week to an Internet marketer who has generated over 50 million dollars in revenue between 2005 and 2014 through his online companies. Mike has some great stories from his years working at car dealerships and we learn a lot about how he managed to transition from working as an employee to being in charge of an Internet business.

  • […] was listening to Yaro Starak’s interview with Mike Filsaime, which was pretty entertaining and […]

  • Awesome. Just discovered your interview podcasts. Like a goldmine…

  • That’s a great overview of Mike’s life and a good example of how someone got into the IM market. These kind of stories always inspire me.

    Mike F is a man where you can learn a lot from and is also willing to admit his mistakes. That’s something almost no marketer dares.


  • Great story by your guest! Great insight on the viral section, especially the part about having users spread the word as part of the use of the product.

    One criticism though, Yaro your sound level was way below Mike’s so I had to keep juggling my volume control to balance the audio.

  • I love Mike, he is such a simple genious. Butteryly Manuscript did it for me and made me realize his genius!
