4 employees, 6 million visitors and $1 million Revenue

What com­pa­ny has 6 mil­lion vis­i­tors, expects to gen­er­ate $1 mil­lion in rev­enue in its first year and has only 4 employees?

Stack­so­cial is an up and com­ing com­pa­ny that recent­ly raised $800,000 to take the com­pa­ny pub­lic. The com­pa­ny is unique because it is a dai­ly deals store for tech-relat­ed prod­ucts such as soft­ware bun­dles and hard­ware. News pub­li­ca­tions can place the store with­in their web­site and Stack­so­cial will pro­vid­ed deals that appeal direct­ly to their spe­cif­ic audi­ence. There are approx­i­mate­ly 3 to 4 new deals avail­able each week and their web­site receives approx­i­mate­ly 6 mil­lion unique vis­i­tors per month.

Some of the pub­lish­ers that Stack­so­cial works with include the glob­al tech­nol­o­gy pub­lish­ers Future US, Inc. who owns pub­lish­ing web­sites such as TechRadar, MacLife, Max­i­mum PC, and Games­Radar. Com­merce and pub­lish­ing on the web is grow­ing rapid­ly which gives Stack­so­cial a promis­ing future.

The com­pa­ny is cur­rent­ly extreme­ly small with only four employ­ees that means it’s prob­a­bly a good place to look for a job if you are a tal­ent­ed and moti­vat­ed indi­vid­ual. Stack­so­cial has been fair­ly suc­cess­ful and is on track to gen­er­ate $1 mil­lion in rev­enue dur­ing its first year as a pub­li­cal­ly trad­ed com­pa­ny. Josh Payne who said that he plans to hire addi­tion­al employ­ees short­ly found­ed the company.

Stak­coso­cial is based in Venice, Cal­i­for­nia and is part of a Los Ange­les-Based start­up accel­er­a­tor called Ampli­fy. This is a new seed fund for star­tups, which includes invest­ments for 500 dif­fer­ent startups.

Ste­fan Wro­bel is Josh Payne’s co-founder and recent­ly explained to TechCrunch that Stack­So­cial pro­vide online web-pub­lish­ers with a sim­ple and easy way to inte­grate relat­ed com­merce into their web­sites with no invest­ment what­so­ev­er. The com­pa­ny has already com­plet­ed 50,000 trans­ac­tions and their cus­tomers have saved more than $7.5 mil­lion dol­lars by shop­ping through their plat­form instead of shop­ping in a tra­di­tion­al brick and mor­tar store. Some tech­nol­o­gy prod­ucts that are sold through their plat­form are as much as 90 per­cent off, accord­ing to the company’s website.

Their web­site is sim­ple and easy to use and allows new vis­i­tors to enter their email address to get noti­fied for new deals and free­bies for elec­tron­ics. Alter­na­tive­ly, you can log-in with Face­book to get noti­fied via your news­feed. This is an excel­lent idea if you are inter­est­ed in work­ing for the com­pa­ny in the future because you can keep track of the lat­est updates that the com­pa­ny pub­lish­es. Fur­ther­more, you can sub­scribe to the company’s blog via Twit­ter or book­mark their blog for addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion. This is a sure­fire way to make sure you have an oppor­tu­ni­ty to get a job with the com­pa­ny as soon as they post infor­ma­tion about who they are look­ing to hire.

Alter­na­tive­ly, you might want to be proac­tive and email the com­pa­ny right away with your resume! The com­pa­ny is like­ly to cre­ate new jobs through expan­sions and not acqui­si­tions. This is a good place to look for a job if you are inter­est­ed in tech­nol­o­gy, espe­cial­ly if you are a web-devel­op­er or are inter­est­ed in online news. Addi­tion­al­ly, if you have any expe­ri­ence with pay-per-click adver­tis­ing you may have an advan­tage when apply­ing for a job with this com­pa­ny. This is because pay-per-click adver­tis­ing is a large part of the company’s busi­ness model.
