πŸ‘‹ Hey friend, while this platform is about YOU, here’s an overview of who I am (helping you clarify whether to trust Futurist Marketers).

I am an entrepreneurial growth marketer (Full Stack + T-shaped) with over 7+ YOE, and have had the humble opportunity to help scale growth for pre-seed/YC-backed startups (Muzz, Circl), as well as household brands (BMW, Audible, Meta Gaming).

Currently a digital marketing lead by day, and a marketer/content creator by night (building this very platform you are on!). Oh, and a musician on the weekends.

πŸ“š Contextual Story: My journey into the world of growth and digital marketing was ignited by my own side hustle/business (Soundprise), in which I was able to rapidly upskill and evolve in the marketing field.

After Soundprise failed in 2020 (the greatest thing that happened for me), I formally transitioned into digital marketing. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to consult with a wide range of business models (D2C, B2C and B2B) and verticals, including: Media, Automobile, Music, E-commerce (Fashion, FMCG), HR and Recruitment, Education, Fintech, Gaming, Sports, Consumer Tech, Dating and Nutrition.

I’ve always wanted to create a platform where I can aggregate, distill and share ALL my learnings and insights, to help fellow marketers and professionals alike. Futurist Marketers is the brainchild of that idea – I hope you find incredible value in this project and we get to collaborate (and meet) one day.

πŸ™ If you think we can jam, I’d highly encourage you to connect with me and start a conversation – I’m keen on learning more about you. Now, back to where you were.

What’s so special?

πŸ† The first platform (that I know of) to show you real-time changes in marketing as they happen – our website literally updates daily

πŸ‘€ Full visibility into how our business operates and dances in the chaos – you get to see what we’re working on through our public Notion board (products, stats, income/expenses, general updates and real juicy stuff)

πŸ› οΈ My personal frameworks, playbooks and templates to mastering marketing and oneself (from a self-development POV) – that evolves over time, as I do – Jon

πŸ–₯️ A growth-minded community and network of pre-vetted marketers, orchestrated to support each other from multiple vantage points (channel-specific insights, exclusive job postings, career advice, networking and events, collaborative projects, building a REAL human connection). Invitation to our WhatsApp/Discord – Coming soon
