In today’s episode, we speak to the Marketing and Business Development Manager of Crowdspring, Jason Byer. He talks about the importance of good personal branding, learning the ropes of marketing, and how he used the same strategies to be where he is today.

 

Jason Byer is the marketing and partnerships manager for Crowdspring, a Chicago-based branding company that helps businesses, agencies, and non-profits of any size start, run and grow their business through great design and naming. Crowdspring dramatically simplifies the design process by handling the complexity so that you can focus on getting great results. Crowdspring started to address a fundamental problem with the design process, most clients had little choice, and most designers had few opportunities to find clients.

 

Jason is the oldest of 7 children. He was raised and attended school in Florida but realized he needed to feel a change of seasons, so he moved to Chicago. He's equally comfortable reading The Game of Thrones and Dostoyevsky while training for triathlons and endurance races and brewing beer. He authored Get the Job: How to Use Personal Branding to Jump-Start a Career and Dominate the Competition.
