Our Story

The lovechild of Affiliate Manager Liz Gazer, Growthspurt Media was born of a gratifying affair with affiliate marketing that began when Liz was left in charge of what was then an infant affiliate marketing channel for acclaimed internet retailer, Rugman.com.

Within the first few months, affiliate sales doubled and the program achieved previously unprecedented growth, earning Liz industry-wide recognition for her efforts and a nomination for Best Affiliate Manager 2004 at AbestWeb.com; then, the web's largest affiliate industry community and discussion forum online.

In early 2006 with much encouragement from peers, Liz launched her solo career with Growthspurt Media, named for her tall personality (despite a 5-foot frame) and a strong reputation for nurturing affiliates to cultivate year-over-year growth in revenue & sales. The rest is history. And in making it, Liz proves there is truth in that old saying... history does repeat itself.

In January 2007, Liz was honoured to receive nomination yet again - not once, not twice but in three different categories in ABestWeb's Member's Choice awards for the "Best of 2006."

Growthspurt Media clients benefit from our affiliate management expertise, industry insight, and accumulated equity within the affiliate market at large.

With a background diverse in creative advertising, business, sales, marketing and communication arts, Liz brings a wealth of insight, experience and a multifaceted perspective to any business situation.
