Today we’d like to introduce you to Jordan Sampson.
Hi Jordan, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
In middle school, I quit the church choir and started volunteering in the church sound room with the media ministry. There I learned how to work the soundboard, Livestream programs, and different media and technology things. While volunteering there I started the church’s Instagram account and managed that until I graduated high school.
While I was in high school, I helped local businesses and nonprofits with their social media management and continued doing that into my freshman year of college. In sophomore year, the opportunity to do a workshop with SCORE Savannah presented itself, and I participated in the month-long workshop series.
At the end of it, I participated in the Tiger’s Den Student Business Pitch Competition where I won 1st place and seed money to start my business! I then pitched my business again at The Creative Coast’s FastPitch competition and won 1st place there as well!
With seed money from both of those competitions, I was able to officially start my business, Sampson Digital Media Management, and Consultation, LLC.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Starting my business has not been easy in any way, shape, or form.
As much preparation as you can have for something, it can still be extremely difficult. I’m really grateful for the support systems that I have with me, in my family, my friends, and the community of entrepreneurs that have supported me.
The encouragement, advice, and support that I receive from them make all the difference.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I’m currently a junior at Savannah State University majoring in Computer Information and Logistics Systems. Being a small business owner and a full-time college student is really interesting, to say the least.
In my business, I focus on digital and social media management for small businesses, public figures, and nonprofits.
What sets my business apart from others is that I bring exciting new perspectives and ideas to the table, while still being extremely data-driven.
Any big plans?
Plans for the future are to keep growing and glowing while building a strong clientele base. It would be great to expand the team (currently I’m on the team) to provide other college students opportunities to fine-tune their skill sets.
