Dominating Digital Marketing

22-year-old trending entrepreneur, James Fort, has been having quite the year. As the digital advertising landscape continues to evolve, Fort is quickly earning his title as a major player in the space. In just three years, James portfolio of startups and clients has established him as a top competitor among other firms in the online business industry. His competitors being multimillion-dollar organizations with dozens of employees.

Not only does he advertise for other businesses, but he also owns several e-commerce startups that have caught the eye of a magnitude of investors and even the retail giant Lord & Taylor, who approached Fort offering a partnership opportunity with one of his startups. His favorite business venture is creating ‘dropshipping stores’ which have gained massive interest in the last year. In an interview with him, Fort stated “Sometimes when I see an opportunity in the market to sell a specific trending product, I act on the opportunity and execute immediately. I’ll setup a website that day and usually have my first sale before midnight. I’m just confident in my ability as a marketer to sell anything.” His approach is completely different than most other marketers in the sense that he has strayed away from typical methods that are used in advertising. He says his goal is to produce viral and eye-catching content and he’s been practicing just that since he began his first YouTube channel in 2005 at the age of 8 years old.

James and his team of employees at ROAS Consulting LLC, his advertising agency, have promoted the products and services of dozens of other companies, brands, and individuals to millions of social media users. “The world of advertising can be pretty dull. I’ve tried to stir things up as much as I possibly can. I think that’s what has allowed my brands and clients to win in a space that just keeps getting more and more competitive every year.”

He also admits he has a keen love for technology and the application it has to improve everyday life. Fort constantly looks to influential tech entrepreneurs such as Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and his favorite, Jack Ma, for inspiration and hopes to one day change the world just as they did.“I find it unbelievable how many people you can impact through the internet. The potential is limitless. You could completely change a person’s life for the better. I never thought my advertisements would be seen by tens of millions of people.”

James Fort’s upbeat personality, philanthropic lifestyle, and positive energy culminate to make him one of the most sought-after marketers for businesses to collaborate with in today’s world. The celebrated keynote speaker has plans to drastically change the industry and its reputation as he continues to influence the field. Regarding his future Fort states “My goal is to pass the torch along and provide as much help as I can to other young entrepreneurs. I’m hoping to speak at as many events as I possibly can in the near future.” James is poised to become one of the best marketers of all time. Following a poll statistic on @topmarketers one can tell that James Fort’s career is on an exponential incline. Coupled with drive and passion for his work, Fort believes his determination is unstoppable.
