Success Stories:

"TIWIB helped my book become a #1 Best Seller on Amazon within a matter of hours. The revenue generated from visibility on the site was absolutely overwhelming."

John Kyle, Grow The Fuck Up Book

"This Is Why I'm Broke helped Drop Stop get noticed in a big way. The hits to our website and Amazon listing as well as accompanying sales were amazing! And what’s even more amazing, it kept on going for YEARS after the original post. Folks still tell us that's where they discovered our invention."

Jeffrey Simon, Dropstop

"TIWIB drove 5 figures of sales and substantial traffic for over the year after it posted. It was the gift that kept giving because we ended up being highly rated on one of their categories so the sales continued for us for way longer than what we expected."

Tyler Ward, PrankCandles

Brendan McAuley, Chippo Golf

Howie Busch, Zero Fucks Coins

"ThisIsWhyImBroke not only significantly increased our website traffic, but also opened up the floodgates to amazing opportunities with interested investors, new customers, and other media placements. The overall burst of energy that TIWIB brought to BurgaBox was a sonic boom for our young company."

Kimberly Corkum, BurgaBox

"Pitching my product on ThisIsWhyImBroke was the best $250 I've ever spent. A major social media marketing company found us on ThisIsWhyImBroke and the product went viral! 5 million+ views within a week! They found me here!"
