Matthew Woodward started his career online when he was just 13 years old writing games reviews for a website known as NintendoPhiles.

Over the next couple of years he developed an interest in competitive gaming and created his first community based website. The website allowed people to share ‘demos’ or short videos of them showing off their best action.


Over the next few years Matthew would develop his online skill set…and he admits, he didn’t even know you could make money off the internet back then. He just enjoyed messing around with websites


Matthew eventually found himself as head of online marketing for one of the biggest distributors in Europe, where he led a range of online marketing campaigns for clients such as Tesco, Asda, Orange, Samsung & Motorola with great success.

That was nearly 3 years ago and a lot has changed since then. Working for himself without corporate restrictions has allowed him to excel in all areas at a rapid pace. He has researched, built, developed and ranked over 40 websites in the past 3 years.
