Testimonial

There are only a few IT professionals with deep knowledge and experience in Affiliate Marketing - Michal is one of them. I have worked on multiple projects with Michal, and he has always over-delivered regardless of the task he was given. I am 100% confident he will be a great asset to any e-commerce team.

- Josef Buryan / ex-head of marketing / Tipli.cz

With Michal, I have worked on several projects and I am happy about it. He has completed my tasks very well although everytime came with his own idea and fresh thoughts that helped us very much. He always delivers what he promises.
