HS Media – The Digital Ad Academy
I’m passionate about helping good people and good businesses
In the past few years I’ve used paid ads on Facebook, TikTok, Snapchat, and Google to generate millions of dollars in revenue for clients. My experience with paid ad clientele spans many industries, from financial services to 10+ DTC eCommerce brands. Unlike many large agencies that try to dress up impressions and clicks as valuable interactions, every client of mine has seen a direct, positive ROI from our advertising strategy.
Marketing is all I’ve ever known.
I’ve been selling things since I was five year old.
I was writing direct response sales copy before I could spell the words “issue” and “come.”
My mom is a marriage and family counselor and when I was 5 I asked her what she did.
What she actually does would be challenging for a 5 year old to understand, so she told me she was an “issue solver”.
Parents would tell her about their issues and she would help them solve the issues.
About 5 minutes later a piece of paper that said “Half Price Ishue Solver! Com Now! And Rocks on Sale!” was hanging on my bedroom door.
I was officially in business.
I charged 10 cents to solve any of my family member’s “ishues” and sold rocks for a quarter each.
My parents thought it was funny but they were extremely supportive, playing along and paying me for my expertise.
Eventually I graduated to lemonade stands, then selling candy at school, then eventually social media marketing, with about 20 other hustles in between.
Anytime I see anybody younger than me hustling I do everything I can to support them.
I’ve paid kids $100 for lemonade and I give free advice to anyone that asks and that I think I can legitimately help, because I wouldn’t be where I am if my family, friends, and mentors hadn’t supported me.
I recognize that I’m extremely blessed to have had this support as a kid and I know that many don’t, so when I have the opportunity to support others, I do everything I can to pay it forward.
Now my mission is simple: to use my skills in advertising and marketing to help grow businesses that have a positive impact on people’s lives.
For this reason, I am very selective with the people and businesses that I work with. I also set aside time to help people who are trying to start their own business, so if you run a business that has a positive impact or you think I could help you in some way, please reach out!
