Jordan Can Increase Your ROI with His A.I. & Automation Combined with Digital Marketing
What’s your story?
As a 22 year old, I left college to travel Asia. My aim was to take a break from all the hard work I put into 2 small companies I had while in college. I ended up staying in the Philippines, and after a few months of earning enough to afford food and rent, I was able to take a new business, Impremis Marketing, to a point where I am working with some of the largest brands in the Philippines, and the world, for A.I. and automation, as well as digital marketing.
What excites you most about your industry?
The fact that creativity, innovation and the need for speed will out-perform other players in the market. I thrive because of my work ethic, strategic and creative thinking, and ability to execute quickly.
What’s your connection to Asia?
I was just a 22 year old backpacker looking to start an online business after college who happened to be travelling in Asia when I realized there was incredible potential for creating a business in the Philippines.
Favourite city in Asia for business and why?
As of now it’s Manila. Why? Because if you want to get in front of any person, they’re normally only a 2nd connection away.
What’s the best piece of advice you ever received?
If you’re going to give something effort, give it 100%. If you start to spread yourself too thin, nothing grows. Whether it is a business or a relationship, give it 100% effort.
Who inspires you?
My good friend Johannes. Rarely does one meet someone so hard working, with such a drive for self-development, willingness to help others selflessly, and the ability to create a work-life balance that’s complemented by financial freedom. Johannes a great friend, client, and business partner.
What have you just learnt recently that blew you away?
Even during the pandemic crisis, with unemployment going through the roof, consumer spending is not stopping. Consumer spending is just being re-allocated to different industries and places. Now, it’s just a matter of determining how to get a piece of that action for all business owners.
If you had your time again, what would you do differently?
I genuinely wouldn’t do anything differently. I don’t think what I have done has been perfect, by any means, but I can’t think of anything I’d change.
How do you unwind?
I love going on long walks with my Husky and a podcast, or getting in a challenging workout. Just getting away from the computer for 30 minutes to an hour does the job for me, and then I can jump right back into another 4 to 5 hour block of work.
Favourite Asian destination for relaxation? Why?
Bali, for the Incredible food, beyond hospitable people, and amazing views from the cliffs in the south to the cold and challenging hikes up north. No matter what you like to do, Bali has a host of amazing options.
Everyone in business should read this book:
“How to Win Friends and Influence People,” by Dale Carnegie. There are so many great books out there, but in my opinion, if you put any amount of effort into self-development, beyond what the average person does, and take action on it daily, you’re one step closer to success.
