For over a decade, Jason Van Orden has studied top Internet influencers in order to decode the systems, psychology and strategies they use to launch and grow world-class personal brands and profitable businesses. He’s taught thousands of people around the world how to grow their audience, attract bigger opportunities, expand their influence and have a greater impact in the world. Many of his and students have become top authors, bloggers, podcasters and speakers in their field.
In September of 2005, Jason co-founded the first ever podcast about internet business and online marketing. It quickly became one of the top business podcasts in the world. To this day it’s one of the most profitable podcasts on iTunes — having generated millions of dollars in sales directly from his podcast.
Jason has spoken around the world at some of the biggest conferences (such as CES, National Association of Broadcasters, New Media Expo, and many others) teaching how to use Internet media to launch and grow influential personal brands. In 2006, he wrote the bestselling book, Promoting Your Podcast, in which he was the first to “crack the code” for optimizing podcasts to get maximum exposure on iTunes. His work has been used to teach marketing at the university level and has been referenced on sites such as Forbes.com and Entrepreneur.com. He also practices what he preaches, having created multiple world-class, influential brands of his own.
