The story of an entrepreneur...
My name is Billy Willson, founder of WillsonMedia.
It all began at age 18.
One semester into college I began to realize it wasn't for me. By no means was I failing, I obtained straight A's, but I was learning hundreds of times faster through online mentors I had found through YouTube and other social media outlets. I knew that I was bound for more than just the typical 9-5 job. As I made my farewell, I decided to go out with a bang, and designed a social media post which would change my life forever. Pointing out the major flaws of the current college system, I posted about my decision to drop out of university.
People went crazy.
All in all my post was shared tens of thousands of times and seen by millions in a matter of days. Although I received many threats and hate messages, I received messages from thousands of people all over the world, telling me how my post had opened their minds and changed their lives. This is when I first realized my own personal skill for social media, and realized the true extent at which Social Media could grow a person and business.
The following months after I cultivated my skills in Social Media and Online Marketing, implementing them into my own accounts and those of local businesses. Over time I found social media and online marketing by far the most cost-effective method for any business to grow. It makes sense - the concept of word of mouth - on steroids. Not to mention the ability to target nearly every single interest and demographic at an astoundingly low price.
I now firmly believe almost any business can thrive using online marketing alone - From solo photographer to multi-million dollar businesses - Just take a look at some of the top businesses on social media around you as examples. That is why I created WillsonMedia. To bring your business to your vision.
