Meet Jason Wojo, the 22-year old entrepreneur who leveraged his unique “Instagram Flame Swipe” to scale local businesses that earned him the nickname Local Business Accelerator.
Jason Wojo is from the small town of Newburgh, New York. He grew up with both his parents and his older sister. His childhood was characterized by other people describing Jason as being too rambunctious, too energetic, and too different. Throughout his life, those around him doubted his abilities and limited his opportunities for growth through experience.
His journey to success began, surprisingly, in Culinary School. Even at a young age, Jason already had a clear goal of becoming financially independent. He worked at a cafe from when he was 16 to 18 years old. Part of his job was making breakfast food, doing simple food prep, and cleaning dishes. Because he was already in the culinary world, he decided to enter culinary school. It didn’t take long, however, for Jason to realize that hurdling from paycheck to paycheck without any passion would not lead to happiness.
Unable to see himself working in the culinary world long term, Jason left culinary school and went back to New York to live with his parents again. He felt nervous and excited at the same time to enter into a business program. In his sophomore year, he worked at a life insurance company pushing papers and meaningless data. He also got a job at a financial firm where he helped them revamp their whole website, record financial commentaries, and do more digital advertising. He was doing everything he could to earn money and move out once school was over.
It was around this time that Jason better recognized the potential in content creation. It was on the rise and he knew he had the work ethic to figure it out, put the systems in place, and help others achieve greater success through quality content creation. On the 21st of April 2018, Jason launched Wojo Media. It was his full-service digital marketing agency that provides social media management, content creation, advertising management, video editing, Google ppc management, Google business listing management, Instagram and Facebook advertising, email marketing and SMS marketing!
Over the years, Jason continued to face challenges associated with the issues of the education system until his graduation. At the same time, he was able to scale his business even as a student. By doing something different for each of his clients, he came up with a proven system for any local business to acquire new customers, traffic, and leads on-demand. His company, Wojo Media, became well known for the attention-grabbing “Instagram Flame Swipe” videos — vertical 15-second Instagram story videos his clients used that led to higher traffic and leads for his clients’ products and services. It wasn’t just the “flame swipe” that sold the target audience, it was the copy, the script he wrote with the actionable moving parts and the irresistible offers he pushed for his clients that made these videos so deadly.
The key people and businesses that supported Jason throughout his journey are a significant part of the success of his empire. When he first started his company, he was fortunate to have met Pedro. Pedro possessed the editing skills that Jason needed to edit the famous “Instagram Flame Swipe” videos, and he remains as an integral part of the Wojo Media team. Jason also attributes much of his success to Greg Berry. Greg found Jason on Instagram, invited him over for lunch in Connecticut, and decided to hire him on the spot once he saw the results of these “Instagram Flame Swipe” videos. Greg became a mentor to Jason and helped him realize his dream of achieving freedom: becoming financially free and free from societal norms.
Also since his move to Orlando, he has attributed much success to his good friends Ryan and Jenna who welcomed Jason with open arms in moving to Orlando and starting his new life when others didn’t believe in him. They saw something in him that would say otherwise. Jason consults them on advertising, copywriting and much more giving value to their clients along with his own.
Now Jason has around 15 clients whom he runs Facebook ads for, driving revenue and leads from all channels: Facebook, Instagram, Google, and more! He does social media advertising, content creation, funnel building, social media management, personal branding, SEO, website design and basically the whole digital marketing bundle!
He has grown a passion for building e-commerce brands from scratch for the past couple of months and has had the opportunity of taking a planner to 6 figures in under 5 weeks (no joke) and a “Drunk Wives Matter Wine Tumbler” to 6 figures in 2 months, adding multiple 5 figures a month to small and local businesses all over the US!
He has also gotten into speaking events and keynotes spreading the knowledge he has gained and looking to implement his strategies into businesses all over that can handle the surge in traffic.
Over his 3 years of being in Digital Marketing he has had the opportunity to work with multiple brands that spend over $50,000-$100,000 a year on Facebook ads. With his help, his clients have generated well over $1,400,000 in revenue.
