Longtime listeners will certainly be familiar with Travis Jamison.
Travis has joined us on this show many times in the past, and you’ve likely heard ads for his newest company Smash Digital on the show in recent weeks.
Travis has been on a pretty epic journey since we first met, not just living and working in many countries, but he has become a hugely successful entrepreneur as well.
We invited Travis back on to the show this week to share his amazing story.
You’ll hear how he started a supplement company and scaled it almost entirely through SEO, how he transitioned to SEO services, how he then shifted into SEO for Amazon sellers with AMZ Tracker, and how he made some judicious exits from those companies, which has allowed him to take equity stakes in a dozen or more start-ups with the investment arm of his new company.
Listen to this week’s show and learn:
- Travis’ origins selling supplements online and how he got into SEO. (5:19)
- How selling his business gave Travis the momentum to develop AMZ Tracker. (21:26)
- Why Travis left $20 Million on the table when he exited from AMZ Tracker. (38:12)
- His experiences investing in other companies. (48:26)
