“I take the marketing off the shoulder of the founders and help them get the numbers they need to run a successful company and build a successful company.” – Lara Jordan

Building A Credible Brand

In today’s digital marketing scene, everything is changing so quickly which makes it hard for companies to stay updated. This leads to businesses being left out in the curve. Lara discusses with us why StartUps need a proper presentation to give a good first impression.

“All these different elements have been built out so that we can have a robust online presence. Today, everything is so competitive. If you don’t have a strong brand, you can lose a customer. If you have a bad website, you have a bad product. Having a good design, building marketing funnels and content can help you present yourself properly.” – Lara Jordan

Developing Mutual Trust

Creating a good relationship with the client should be a number one priority for starting businesses as this promotes mutual trust. Lara shares with us her experiences on how to handle this kind of issue for starting businesses in improving relationships with their clients.

“I hear time and time again from potential clients, they’ve been burned by bad marketing that promised something from advertising and they felt it was wasted money. The thing that separates me is that I really care about my clients, I want to feel like a team member at those companies. I want to do everything I can to make them successful.” -Lara Jordan

About Jaime Jay

Meet Jaime Jay – a man who wears many hats, and wears them all admirably. He's a master connector, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, and a published author who knows how to get things done.

Before he found his way to the business world, Jaime served his country as a brave paratrooper in the U.S. Army. But that's just the beginning of his many accomplishments.

He's the founder of the renowned Bottleneck Distant Assistant Services firm, and his book "Quit Repeating Yourself" has become a must-read for entrepreneurs everywhere.

When he's not busy building his empire, you can find him on his beloved Harley Davidson, cruising through the countryside and taking in the invigorating effects of Uitwaaien – a Dutch practice that involves facing the wind to boost health and relieve stress.

He enjoys spending his free time outside building stuff with his wife, Nikita the dog and their two kittens (for now at least) Tommy and Tater.

He is ‘over-the-moon’ happily married to his wonderful wife Sara, his amazing daughter, Jessica, who is serving our country as a United States Army soldier. Jaime and Sara are the proud grand parents of two beautiful little girls.
