    Like a Boss Amazes Viewers with Entertaining Content

     
    Like A Boss is a website that supplies viewers with motivational, inspirational, badass, and heartwarming content. The content consists mostly of videos, pictures, gifs (graphics interchange format), and articles. The founders jumped on the domain name when came up for sale two years ago, as it was a very popular catch phrase at that time. The “Like A Boss” parody song by Lonely Island was a large part of the phrase’s popularity. The company currently has three offices; one in Texas and two in Norway.

    Kurt Allen, who describes himself as the man responsible for marketing and optimizing the website, informed me that the website currently generates no revenue. The company runs a number of other websites (including Lolblog.com and Redneckrepairs.com), and none of the websites are monetized at all. The sites are totally ad free at the moment, but they have tested out a number of different ideas, including t-shirt sales. They will continue to attempt other ideas until they find something that works, but they would like to see the websites go green within the next couple of years.

    Upcoming plans for redesigning the website include making it more user friendly, engaging, and fun. The team wants to do this by adding gifts that users can give one another as well as shifting focus from videos to more picture content and quotes. Videos take more time to watch than looking at pictures, and since viewers may watch one video and then leave the site, a stream of pictures will likely keep them interested for longer.
