As the founder and President of Volume 9, Chuck Aikens provides the leadership, expertise, innovation, and strategic insight that are the foundation for the success of the company.
Chuck started his Internet marketing career in 1996 when he taught himself programming and began building websites to generate real estate and mortgage leads. One of his initial creations was one of the first mortgage aggregator websites at http://www.mortgage101.com which ranked #1 for ‘mortgage’ on Google for over 10 years.
When he’s not at the office, you’ll probably find him taking in a ballgame ranging from the Nuggets and the Rockies to his son’s traveling baseball team. Chuck usually has a home improvement project or two going on as well and his favorite vacation spot is anywhere with a beach and a beverage.
Years of Marketing Experience: 16
Where were you born?
If you had a super power, what would it be and why?
Transportation. When I was a kid, I wanted to go to where stuff was happening immediately and then be able to get back home in time for dinner. Yes, I want to go places but I prefer to go there when something is happening instead of just looking at the tourist sites.
Mac or PC?
I am currently a PC user, but I seem to be accumulating more Apple stuff at home all the time. Now that we have multiple iPhones, Apple TV, and even a MacBook Pro in the house, it is probably time for me to make the switch.
What is your favorite website to waste time on?
I waste a lot of time on ESPN playing Fantasy Football, Baseball, and even Basketball. After that, I browse around looking for music and finding stuff to buy (with free shipping of course) on Amazon.
