Youth is for growth, taking risks, and making your wildest dreams a reality. It is a season of life meant for big things, and Jonathan Jadali has embraced it all.
The 23-year-old entrepreneur is the founder and CEO of Ascend Agency. A Social Media Marketing and PR agency, Ascend Agency has served hundreds of like minded entrepreneurs and businesses, as well as numerous Fortune 500 companies.
In order to make the climb to Ascend Agency, Jadali had to be astute in his decision making. At the time of the company’s birth, he was a successful cryptocurrency trader, having taught himself the ropes as a precocious tween. Before he was twenty, he had made himself a millionaire thanks to his crypto trading acumen, and his name was turning heads in the entrepreneurial world.
Having mined his own seed money, he funneled his earnings into his true passion: Ascend Agency. Tackling the arduous task of building a social media following, he now has an impressively large footprint online. Through this organic growth he gained a world-class hands-on education on marketing and branding with intention. Building visibility and brand authority is something he does well, as proven through Ascend’s beginnings and current work.
Ascend Agency helps Fortune 500 companies and aspiring brands boost their brand authority, growing their SEO rankings and getting them discovered by all the right people. With a carefully curated team of diligent masters of their craft, Jadali and his team has maintained a book of business that includes an extensive list of A-list brands. Ascend Agency’s success in public relations has garnered over $1 million in sales in just two years. As of today, Jadali’s Ascend Agency has advised countless new businesses, bringing them to their feet fast and accelerating their development at a rapid and fruitful pace.
“The internet is the great leveler, there are no big and small companies anymore. In the age of the internet, if you seem big, then you are; it is all about perception and getting perceived the right way,” explains Jadali. As CEO of Ascend Agency, he has three keys to successful brand and reputation building, and perception is one of them.
“Your reputation is not everything you need to succeed, because you still need to back it up with excellent delivery. However, it does lay the foundation you need to come out roaring as a new business.”
Jadali abides by his “3 P’s” of successful business: perception (as mentioned above), placement and personality.
“If I was referred for a software design contract by Floyd Mayweather, it would definitely carry some weight, but not nearly as much as it would if Bill Gates referred me… Reputation building revolves around placement, getting mentioned in the right places and by the right people,” says the CEO of the importance of targeting the correct placement for your brand authority.
Of personality, the mogul has this to say: “If you are going to make a great impression as a new business, you need to lift the veil and let your audience become attracted to your personality, what you have underneath; that is what social media is for when used right.”
In an age of connection and instant gratification, Jadali knows the importance of not just building, but maintaining a brand in the public sphere. Ascend Agency ensures that not only are their brands receiving the visibility they deserve, but that those brands sustain their success internally and externally.
For the young entrepreneur, online presence is second nature, and organic growth is something he has a reputation for excelling in. With its current trajectory, he’ll be bringing Ascend to even further heights in the coming years.
