0008: An online ads industry professional - 'business owner biography' - with AJ Wilcox


AJ loves the concept of being present when customers are at the bottom of the funnel, and who are ready to make a purchase.

He has been an online marketer since 2007 and he’s managed hundreds of Google AdWords campaigns. He’s always been fascinated by the lead quality from intent-based targeting. 

He was introduced to advertising on LinkedIn in 2014. He figured that it likely wasn’t a good platform because he hadn’t heard of it before then. As he continued to dive deeper into LinkedIn, he began to see the value that he felt the industry had not picked up on. He then founded B2Linked in an effort to spread the success he was experiencing through LinkedIn advertising to other companies.

He’s extremely active in the online marketing community. He’s a LinkedIn Certified Ads Partner, he manages the official LinkedIn Ads group forum, and he’s a board member of SLC | SEM among other things. He’s an exotic car nut and a triathlete. I lives in Utah with his wife and 4 kids.

The 'Share Your Story' Podcast Series


The ‘Share Your Story’, podcast series are interviews with business people who run their own businesses. They are Micro-enterprises with between 1-9 employees only. 

The purpose of the interview is for you, the listener, to learn about how Micro-enterprises got started in business. They will share a bit about their own personal life story and most of the interview will be focused on their business, the joys, the challenges and the vision.

You the listener are likely a business professional who may be looking or wishing to set up your own business but haven’t got the courage yet to do so. The interview and what they do may inspire you to take the leap forward and take action.

Business owners will also share with you who their ideal and perfect client is. The purpose of exploring this ensures that if you’re looking to go into business, you first become very clear on who you wish to appeal to and get in front of.

My last question will be about giving you the listener some advice. I will ask my guest to share one bit of advice for you they’d wish they had when starting their own business. I will be asking all my guests to think of something original in order to leave you with something to remember.

I will end the interview with sharing their website address and their Twitter handle. With those two only hopefully you should be able to find their other social media channels.

Thank you for listening and feel free to share this with your networks.

If you know someone, who might be interested in appearing on the show, please ask them to get in touch with me.
