You’ll Learn:

  • How Jason was empowered to explore digital marketing in the early days.
  • It doesn’t matter how flashy the technology is, you’ll always have to convince clients to commit.
  • Why Jason pulled back from speaking as much.
  • How the agency model is broken.
  • Why Jason has migrated from working with big brands to helping small to medium sized businesses (SMBs).


3 Key Points:

  1. Trust your instinct. You know more than you think you know.
  2. It’s never as good as it seems or as bad as it seems.
  3. The agency model needs to evolve to where the agency is a true partner where there is respect on both sides of the isle, instead of the brand saying jump and the agency saying “how high”.
