Sulit's success is due to the quality of the website. The site, its founders, and its team has garnered multiple awards over the years to prove why Sulit is really the number one local website in the country.
RJ is the primary person responsible for Sulit.com.ph. Without him and his really big and engaging ideas, Sulit will not exist. Well, it will probably, but not as cool and tech-savvy as how it is now.
As the "big boss" of the company, RJ leads and manages the direction of where Sulit is heading. On a typical day, he spends the entire morning reading and answering emails, does work with other team members in the afternoon, and starts the "real work" during the evening. And by real work, he means coding and making those potential ideas work in real life.
At the age of 30, RJ is undoubtedly proud to have created the leading buy and sell website and leading local website in the Philippines. He affirms, "Sulit.com.ph can make a big difference for a lot of people. It is a unique opportunity to innovate and help a lot of people as its byproduct."
Aside from being the wife and inspiration of RJ, Arianne is the head of operations of Sulit.com.ph. She oversees the day-to-day operations of the company, including assisting the Managing Director in leading and managing the company according to the business strategic plans.
As a computer science graduate, Arianne has always worked for IT companies where she had further developed her technical skills. However, being the perky and cheerful person that she always has been, she is more into curving the unique culture of the organization, making sure that team members are "happier", valued and being well compensated. She's also enjoying her new role about customer focus: drives meaningful experiences and promotes better lifestyle, in which she merely believes the most vital ingredients in achieving sustainable success.
Everything started with the launch of Sulit.com.ph on September 11, 2006 as a free online classified ads website. This wasn't a coincidence; the founders intentionally chose this date to launch so that it would give a great recall for the website.
Founded by RJ as the web developer-slash-architect and Arianne as the web designer and test engineer, Sulit.com.ph was supposed to be launched on August 2006. However, during this time, two other websites with huge marketing budgets and targeting the same market kicked off: (1) auction site which launched with a P30 Million promo; and (2) classified site entered the Philippines with full media coverage (TV and print).
Sulit.com.ph is a short version of SULIT COMmunity PHilippines
Sulit.com.ph was launched initially as an experimental website to know which niche or category is best to target through the amount of traffic each category will bring in to the site. Unexpectedly, by the end of November 2006, traffic to the website started to show growth; hence, the founders decided to push through with the classifieds ads format altogether.
This decision was found to be rational as the website continued to grow month by month. This then led the founders to register a sole-proprietorship entity under the name Netrepreneur Connections Web Services or NetCon in April 17, 2007. The name "Netrepreneur" became really ideal as one of the main purposes of the website is to connect Internet Entrepreneurs.
It was also during this time that the founders carried the Sulit motto of "Pay It Forward."
Ok, not the world yet; just the Philippines for now.
By August 2007, Sulit.com.ph came out of RJ's bedroom and a small 2-man office was constructed in front of RJ's residence. Arianne resigned from her job as a development project-lead in a bank in Makati to help RJ run Sulit.com.ph.
The website continued to grow until the founders decided to incorporate Sulit.com.ph under a corporation. The company was incorporated in January 25, 2008 under the name Netrepreneur Connections Enterprises, Inc. but it was still a home-based business.
After incorporating the business, the founders knew it was time to expand and get more people who would help them operate the business. Thus, another office that can house more team members was constructed at the 2nd floor of RJ's residence. By March 2008, the founders hired the 3rd team member. By May 2008, two more team members joined the company, bringing the workforce to five.
By 2008, Sulit.com.ph started to be noticed by large companies and received a number of investment, partnership, and buyout offers.
In August 2009, Sulit.com.ph closed an investment from MIH, a global internet company with businesses holding leading market position at different regions of the world.
During the same month, Sulit.com.ph transferred out of RJ's residence to a new office in Ortigas Center, Pasig City. By this time, the company was able to increase its workforce to 10 team members and started to operate as an actual business corporation.
As the website maintains its growth and popularity, the company continues to expand and increase its resources, as well. As of today, Sulit.com.ph has more than 100 super cool, full-time team members, each with special skills and talents, contributing both their passion and knowledge to share with the goals and objectives of the founders.
