Jason SurfrApp on Creativity – Reach the Summit [PODCAST]Jan 23, 2014 by Amy Schmittauer
Hosts Mike Bowers and Amy Schmittauer interview each guest to learn more about what makes them tick and keeps them striving for success in everything they do. Episodes are recorded twice per month and feature business owners, marketers, salespeople, social media specialists, operations managers, and other inspirational individuals who can speak about their path to success and how to help other people in business.
Jason SurfrApp — entrepreneur, speaker and founder of IWearYourShirt.com — joins the podcast this week to talk about creativity and the power it has to create a business that’s not only successful, but unprecedented.
Jason, whose last name changed at this beginning of this year from his previous name “Jason Headsetsdotcom” and before that “Jason Sadler”, is known for being a very creative entrepreneur in the marketing space. Even his name tells a story of how in the last two years he has created a business just by selling his last name. His first startup was the creation of IWearYourShirt.com, where brands can buy a day of advertising and have the shirt wearers of this video blog promote their product in creative ways in addition to wearing their logo on their shirt. Starting this with little to no following on social media, he grew to be one of the most influential creators in this space and was featured on media outlets such as the Today Show. In addition to these exciting ventures, he is now getting ready to write his first book “Creativity for Sale” which he has written a page of yet but already has about half of it sponsored as he is offering every single page and cover of the book as an adverising opportunity for different brands who bid on SponsorMyBook.com.
In this 30-minute episode, you’ll learn:
- How to build social proof when you’re starting with nothing
- Taking a crazy idea and pursuing it to become a profitable business
- Why video was an important part of making IWearYourShirt.com a success
- Jason’s productivity tips for making time to write his book
- Why social media is important but doesn’t have to be accessed all the time
- Getting outside your usual box for inspiration
