By now you’ve probably heard about Shads advertising firm.
Its been on the radar for a while now, and has raised a little over $1 million so far from a group of investors, but the biggest surprise to many is how it managed to make $1bn in just one year.
This isn’t something any of us would ever expect to make with a traditional advertising agency, but Shads seems to be doing things a little differently.
According to The Guardian, the company raised $6.2 million from investors, including investors from the likes of Facebook, Twitter, and Apple.
The funding comes in addition to the $4.5 million raised in March this year from Shads CEO Jody Smith, who also co-founded the company.
“We believe this is an extremely exciting investment opportunity for the company, and the broader community of marketers and advertisers,” Shads co-founder and CEO Jaxon Jones told the Guardian.
Shads is looking to scale its business to be profitable, and will use the money to hire additional employees, expand the team, and continue to improve its products and services.
This means Shads will be able to offer more advertisers and users the ability to create and distribute shad ads, as well as to expand its product offering to include more types of shad advertising.
In other words, Shads’ business model will likely expand in line with the wider market for shad adverts, with the company working to attract more advertisers, and eventually to build a full-fledged product.
Shades adverts have a range of effects on users’ experience, from giving them an impression of the brand they are targeting, to being more effective on social media.
Shadi’s main focus right now is to be the best shad-based advertising platform for brands and individuals alike, and its focus is to get its services right.
However, the way Shads sees its business is changing rapidly, and as such, it will need to change too.
“Our vision is to create the next wave of ad tech, where marketers and publishers can create, distribute and monetize shad, with real-time results,” the Shads press release reads.
“With Shads, you’ll be able directly create, share and manage your shad campaigns for free.”
In a nutshell, Shad aims to be a platform that provides advertisers with more options for building a brand around shad.
It doesn’t do all of this, however, and instead relies on the power of algorithms.
It’s clear from the press release that the company has a lot to learn from traditional advertising agencies, but its also not an agency.
This will mean Shads may be able improve its services and improve its business model, but it’s clear that the current Shads team is not ready to make this transition.
Shad is also likely to change its business models to cater to advertisers and consumers alike.
If Shads succeeds, it could be a huge success for the entire industry.
But if Shads fails, it may cause a significant loss of revenue and advertising revenue, and it may hurt Shads brand.
