I’m Jeremy – I’m a 34 year old sports and marketing nut from Florida.
I’ve been fortunate over the last few years to grow a business that operates primarily online.
This means no rush hour traffic, late night meetings, or Monday morning blues.
This also allows me to spend more time with my wife and two kids.
How Did I Get Here?
I initially went the traditional route.
I graduated from the University of North Florida, where I obtained my undergraduate and master’s degrees and studied business, management and marketing.
I then entered the corporate world.
I was all set to work 30+ years in a big comfy office, getting to work at 9 and leaving at 5.
As you probably guessed, it didn’t quite work like that :).
I was unexpectedly laid off in May of 2011.
I had a wife and 1 year old child to support, and wasn’t sure what to do next.
Do I start applying for other jobs? Do I try and do something on my own like I’ve always thought about?
Turns out, getting laid off was actually the best thing that could have happened to me.
After leaving the corporate world, I decided to pursue my passions.
I founded SmartStep Media, a digital marketing agency focused on helping businesses rapidly grow through lead generation strategies and direct response campaigns.
I was quickly able to land some clients when I started out, and used that momentum to grow and expand my agency.
I have worked with all types of businesses, from mom and pops, to large law firms, to multimillion dollar corporations.
In 2013, I launched Digital Traffic Ace, a blog that consists of an audience of thousands of my email subscribers, other marketers, entrepreneurs, and small business owners.
Even though I’ve been doing this for awhile, I continue to be fascinated by power of the internet…
Think about it…
You clicked something, and somehow found this page — probably all within like 12 seconds.
That’s pretty cool.
A little bit about Digital Traffic Ace…
Digital Traffic Ace is a community focused on providing information, training and coaching to those who want to stay on top of current and cutting-edge online business strategies.
More specifically, we specialize in teaching digital marketers, entrepreneurs, and small business owners how to create consistent leads and sales, using the internet.
Along with the many tangible aspects of this community, Digital Traffic Ace also has a strong focus on multiple facets of entrepreneurship, including mindset, the achievement of previously unattainable goals, the push beyond your natural comfort level, and the overall planning of your ideal life and business.
More on why this site exists…
After leaving the corporate world and starting SmartStep Media in 2011, I had modest goals and a narrow understanding of what entrepreneurs, marketers, and small business owners truly wanted and needed to rapidly grow their businesses.
With SmartStep Media, I was focused only on providing done-for-you marketing campaigns for businesses, and producing reports that tied it all together.
What I soon realized is that there is an entire marketplace of digital marketers, business owners, and entrepreneurs who want to learn how to do these things themselves. They want to learn how to grow their businesses online, or how to grow an online business.
The training and information that has worked within my own business has proven to be effective for many others, while also giving me the ability to test new content and strategies that I can pass along to my email subscribers and followers of this site.
By creating a marketplace centered on not only marketing strategies, but entrepreneurship in general, I have been able to work with thousands of individuals on achieving their goals and implementing strategies in their own lives and businesses.

Just FYI, if you subscribe, I may email you in the next day or so to learn a bit more about your business.
Thanks for taking some time to learn more about me.
I’ll see you on the blog soon.
