We had the good fortune of connecting with Jason Hunt and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jason, what’s the most important lesson your business/career has taught you?
I’ve learned that partnering with the right people is one of the most valuable lessons in business. Working alongside those whose strengths complement your own can yield positive results, but more often than not it’s a good idea to look for partners who will pick up slack when you’re weak and help fill those gaps where they exist – seeking out the right partners in business is an opportunity cost worth exploring! I’m a creative guy and not so focused on the technical side of digital marketing, this is one of the core reasons for merging my social media agency with a leading SEO company to form Merged Media.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Patience has been the key. Hands down. When I started my social media agency back in 2016, I was knocking on doors, cold calling small businesses and doing all I could to drum up some business. There were weeks where there were struggles, rejections, and cancellations but these were all learning experiences.

I’m thankful to have these learnings because they allowed me to continuously get better, serve my clients better, hire better and overall build a better business.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
There’s no better event to entertain than a sporting event in a vibrant city!!!

Dinner, drinks and sports is always a recipe for a great night!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Having and hosting a successful podcast is one of the most critical aspects of growing myself personally and my business. My shout-out goes out to the 100+ guests that have shared their entrepreneurial stories, struggles and journeys on the Merged Marketing Podcast. The podcast has allowed me the opportunity to continuously grow week by week and I’d like to thank my guests for that.
