In today’s high-tech world, digital marketing and reaching broader audiences online are essential to scaling any business. Few know this better than Hunter Johnson, an entrepreneur who has mastered the complexities of the internet, and has even outsmarted prominent systems such as Google Ads. How, you might ask? Well, his story first began in his early teen years.
At only 13 years old Hunter became a game designer. By the time he was 20 years old, he had over 1 million users playing his game. This, in turn, made him half a million dollars. Not only that, he also achieved more than 50 million YouTube views on influencer advertisements. It’s safe to say he was a computer prodigy who had years of success ahead of him.
From age 20 to 22, Hunter was finding success as a hedge fund manager and trading educator. While in this position, he wrote an artificial intelligence trading program by the name of $oteria. While this job offered financial security and a stable, generous income, Hunter wasn’t satisfied with where his career was heading. Eventually, he made the decision to leave the field because he found the constant hustle of abstaining and satisfying high net worth clients was a tedious and thankless job. “One day you’re a hero, the next day you’re a villain to them,” Hunter explained.
At only 22 years old, Hunter entered the up-and-coming industry of information aggregation. He quickly rose to the top of this field, and in many ways is now in a league of his own. He created an algorithm to compile everything on the internet about any given individual, which includes social profiles, past addresses, phone numbers, emails, criminal history, and even general interests. Now, Hunter provides this as a service and has become immensely successful because of it – his information aggregation services net him an average of over $700,000 per month in subscription-based revenue.
Of course, creating this kind of business is no easy task. There are very few people that can find success in information aggregation and maintain that success on a monthly basis. “The biggest challenge when entering these fields of business is simply how complex the computer science is behind systems like this,” says Hunter. “Had I not been programming for 10-plus years prior to attempting to break into this space, it’s highly unlikely I would have been able to so effectively.”
Hunter is sure to multiply his success in the years to come, as he shows no signs of slowing down. At such a young age, now only 24 years old, he has been able to create an immensely profitable business for himself that benefits not only him, but the companies who use his services as well. With years of experience on the internet and in the digital advertisement field under his belt, we’re sure to see much more from the ultra tech-savvy entrepreneur.
If there’s one thing we can learn from Hunter, it’s to never underestimate the talents of young people. They have the knowledge and power to move the world forward in more ways than one. For Hunter, he’s fortunate to have had the insight to grow his skillset and presence in one of the most profitable industries in today’s society- something he predicted years ago.
