Ep#98 | Making 50 Millionaires, not $50 millions

After growing one of his first PPC clients from 25 to 250 employees, Jake realized he had a gift for using pay-per-click marketing to drive dramatic business results. To help more companies succeed online, Jake founded Disruptive Advertising, a PPC, and CRO management agency that has helped hundreds of companies realize unprecedented growth and profitability from online advertising.

In the six years since its founding, Disruptive Advertising has grown from two employees working in Jake’ s basement to a flourishing agency with more than 120 employees and a run rate of over $18 million- putting it at #145 on the 2017 Inc 500 list and listed as one of USA Today’s Best Places to Work in Salt Lake City in 2019.

As an active member of the marketing community, Jacob is passionate about extending his knowledge beyond his agency and is a regular contributor on a variety of blogs including notable publications like Entrepreneur, Forbes and SearchEngine Land where his wit and ability to make even tedious topics engaging elicits rave reviews from his readers. He has spoken at numerous events and webinars including SMX, Kissmetrics, Create Nation, Unbounce, PRSA, Starfest, VWO and many others— each time entertaining and educating his audience.

Beyond running a successful digital marketing agency, Jake's professional goal is to create 50 millionaires. To help him achieve that goal, Jake has invested over $350,000 into professional development and runs an ongoing series of personal development courses, covering topics like developing healthy habits and vision mapping, to help his employees cultivate a strong sense of selfawareness and unlock their full potential.

As a business owner, author, motivational speaker, Jacob Baadsgaard ’s witty, thoughtful and genuine approach to pay-per-click advertising and leadership makes him a compelling leader in the digital marketing arena!
