Recently, he released a report concerning QuinStreet. The company gets its income from the internet users that click on sponsored links. According to him, the firm is not performing well as it has continued to rely on only one client to generate revenue. Sahm Adrangi points out that the organization needs to provide higher quality services to their customers and change their business model to a modern one as the consumer needs keep on changing.
