Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in marketing but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jason Pittock, Founder of Jason Pittock SEO, located in Miami, FL, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I own and run an SEO coaching program and masterclass. I also own a video marketing agency that focuses on YouTube Ads and Paid Media such as YouTube Ads and Google Ads.
Tell us about yourself
I started when I was a teenager to explore internet marketing, SEO, Google Ads, etc. I found this was something I loved; I enjoyed the freedom and limitless scope that the internet gives you.
I got fired from my Job in 2018 and started doing SEO and Paid Media as a side hustle; initially, I used LinkedIn, Upwork, and TopTal to grow my network and reach. I developed a unique approach to SEO and organic visibility that businesses could leverage to increase their website reach. During 2020 and 2021, my business grew substantially, and during 2022 I was fully booked and had a waitlist for future business.
During Q1 of 2022, I opened a video marketing agency called yugomedia.co, which services YouTube Ads and Performance Media to SMBs. This second business helped me cross-pollinate customers and referrals.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Going from 90k a year to 500k a year during a pandemic!
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Managing multiple tasks at one time and staying accountable to your team and mentors.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Create content that is focused on your buyer profile: attention is the new oil.
- Build and invest in teams that you like working with.
- Value trumps high-level strategy any day! Focus on providing quantifiable value.
