Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in advertising services but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Cody Jensen, Founder of Searchbloom, located in Draper, UT, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Searchbloom is an award-winning SEO & PPC company that partners with Local, National, and E-commerce businesses around the world to grow their digital marketing ROI.
Tell us about yourself
I've been in digital marketing for a little over 15 years and started Searchbloom 8 years ago. After working for several other agencies, I learned that there is a better way to provide digital marketing services that focuses more on transparency and client-agency partnerships.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Winning Mountain West Capital's Utah 100 award. Coming in at #54 of the fastest-growing companies in Utah.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
I think managing many people with different personality types is very challenging. While it has been a challenge, it has also really helped me grow a lot professionally.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Start now - It doesn't really matter if it's a success or not. Lean into the discomfort and work your hardest. When the chips fall, you'll have learned a whole lot just by doing it, no matter the level of success it has.
- Get a Mentor - One of the best ways to save time and accelerate learning is to get a mentor who has done it before.
- Learn from those before you - Some of the greatest lessons I've ever learned came from people who died way before I was born. READ and learn from those who have come before you.
