For 19-year-old Jesse Malcolm from New Zealand, his experiences in the sales and marketing agency have proved to be educational as he learned a lot that helped him, along with several others, create their own brand: a globally recognized Instagram marketing agency known as Growthology.
As the founder and head of sales and operations in Growthology, Jesse has used his skills and knowledge in putting their clients in front of the right audience, in the right way, and at the right time.
How it All Began
Before Growthology, Jesse’s career in sales and marketing began when he started an agency on Instagram called A-Game Agency where he helped various businesses get more clients through paid ads and other online marketing services.
“While heading that agency, I began to grasp the skill on how sales and closing really works. So when [I was] offered a position [in] closing for a larger scale marketing agency, I didn’t hesitate to take action,” the 19-year-old entrepreneur said.
Through that agency, Jesse was able to meet his new partners in Growthology Ibrahim Ansari and Renzo Guevarra. Together, they began unraveling the truth about how branding accounts really work.
After disagreeing with some of the agency’s guidelines, the group decided to take a leap of faith and start their own Instagram marketing business. It turned out to be one of the best decisions of their lives because, in less than two months, they were able to scale their business into a six-figure agency that offers Instagram follower growth, VIP engagement, and more.
Expanding its brand
Following their success, Jesse and his partners are looking into scaling their agency into other popular platforms such as TikTok, and Facebook while developing their brand into something even bigger.
“Our business goal for 2021 is to hit the seven-figure mark for our agency and continue to build into the biggest Instagram marketing agency online,” Jesse said.
People Over Profits
“I’ve learned that it’s important to choose people over profits and that anything’s possible when you put your mind to it. Learn to build strong relationships and always use the opportunity to network with other like-minded individuals,” Jesse said.
He also has a personal goal of helping 25 young entrepreneurs get a break from their 9 AM to 5 PM work schedule and become financially free.
“If I can do it, then they can too,” he said.
The 19-year-old entrepreneur has also been able to open up certain sales and close positions that benefit those that don’t have a business but still want to be successful on Instagram. By doing this, he has been able to help numerous businesses, and impact many lives by helping young, up and coming entrepreneurs find their feet in this digital age.
