😱 Salesforce Buys Slack for $27.7B
Salesforce, the CRM powerhouse, surpassed $20 billion in annual revenue.
And now they’re acquiring Slack in a $27.7 billion megadeal.
Rumours of the pending deal caused Slack’s stock price to spike last week.
Salesforce co-founder and CEO Marc Benioff said:
““This is a match made in heaven. Together, Salesforce and Slack will shape the future of enterprise software and transform the way everyone works in the all-digital, work-from-anywhere world,””
Slack was ripe for taking – having lost around 40% of its value since it went public, it was only a matter of time.
The only surprise here being the massive price tag.

STM THREAD OF THE WEEK: Running Search Feed Arbitrage On Native
Selecting a thread to feature this week, was a rather easy task. There is one, that anyone thinking about running arbitrage, should definitely read right now. Started by “platinum” who happens to be one of the most knowledgeable people on STM, when it comes to native traffic.
As the title of the thread suggests, we’re going to talk about “search feed” arbitrage and how to run it on native traffic. Platinum really stepped out of the shadows this time and delivered a solid tutorial to all STM members 🙂
What’s in it, you might ask?
It lists the constraints, since it’s not for everyone, pretty large budget’s are needed, but the possible returns are pretty much HUGE.
He mentions the payouts and how long you need to wait for the conversions to show up. Since this method requires a bit different setup, platinum goes into campaign setup too. Heck, even screenshots from a tracker are provided.
If that’s not enough, you can read several tips on how to optimize such a campaign, including the things you have to do manually, as well as the stuff you can automate. Have some other questions about this system? Chime in and ask away, platinum tends to answer promptly all the time 🙂
Stay tuned for the next edition of MRKTRS WKLY.
