Today we’d like to introduce you to Jeremy Camilloni.
Jeremy, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
From a very young age, I’ve always aspired to be a successful entrepreneur. I usually found myself pivoting from one project to the next, seeing mediocre results for the most part. Still, they were enough to keep me pushing forward to the next endeavor. Growing up outside of Buffalo, NY, with winters that are cold and full of snow, I also dreamed of palm trees and warm weather–I knew the west coast would be a part of my future.
I moved to LA in 2013 after graduating from college with a bachelor’s in business administration and marketing. Although I secured a job at a large marketing agency in El Segundo, I knew working for someone else and climbing the corporate ladder wasn’t what I wanted.
After spending two years at the agency, I decided to part ways with corporate life. I joined a new startup venture that was just starting to get some traction. I spent the next four years learning the pitfalls of a growing company, absorbing internet marketing forums, and developing my digital marketing skills using whatever spare time I had.
Finally in 2017, I founded a digital agency offering social media marketing services to small and medium-sized companies looking for low-cost growth solutions. Within 12 months, we had a nationwide footprint and over 100 active clients on monthly billing subscriptions.
Shortly after, I founded YimGroup, a virtual incubator intended to serve as a creative space for new startup ideas. Our mission is to create a sustainable environment that can build and test minimal viable products against real potential customers at scale. Our areas of interest are B2B, SaaS, and subscription-based services.
In 2019, we successfully launched our first venture, airSales.io. And now, we’re working on two new SaaS projects that will launch sometime in 2021.
It’s been a long journey full of sleepless nights and hard decisions, but it’s all a part of being an entrepreneur at the end of the day. And I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m looking forward to all of my future failures and successes that lay ahead of me.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I moved to LA with no place to live, no car, no friends, and no family. Just a dream. The “come up” has been a consistent struggle, with plenty of obstacles along the way. One that stands out in my mind, is when my primary revenue stream collapsed overnight without warning–an entrepreneur’s nightmare. We had to immediately pivot and start selling a new service that we had never sold before just to stay afloat. Ultimately, we made it work, and that is what inevitably led to the creation of airSales.io. Still, it was a scary few months to say the least.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with YimGroup – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
YimGroup is a hybrid between a virtual incubator and a digital asset management company. We specialize in building internet-based micro-businesses that don’t require a team of employees and tons of resources to operate. When you partner with us, you gain access to our diverse network of contractors, internal resources, and vendor relationships. Additionally, we help you utilize best practices that will ultimately fast-track your success.
We have the resources to build and test concepts quickly, against real potential customers, and at scale. Our highly-talented network of independent contractors gives us a unique advantage for testing, launching, and managing successful businesses.
Also, since sales are the heartbeat of any business, we create a sales-based model for our projects. Our team of sales professionals and marketing specialists will find ways to connect with customers and generate revenue quickly.
We’re not building a business; we’re building an ecosystem.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
We have some project launches slated for mid to late 2021, and we will be releasing updates on those developments soon.
