For 26-year-old Jesse Brissett, technology is his playground and he has channelled his entrepreneurial endeavour of web development into a viable entity that continues to earn him points in the business world.
Operating under the theme 'Website We Will', Brissett's BinaryAds company, based in Montego Bay, has designed websites for several corporate entities such as Wards Power Tools, Snap Dat Photography, Rainforest Seafood, Hertz Car Rental Jamaica, Caribic Vacations, Express Fitness Jamaica, and Prospective Car Rentals Jamaica, to name few.
"We have been around for the past four years and we are not just a web-design company, but our services are diverse and can meet the demand of companies which want to give their business the edge locally and internationally," said Brissett, CEO and regional marketing manager of BinaryAds.
"We also do web hosting and redesigns of websites, BlackBerry and mobile applications, Facebook and social-media campaigns, SMS and email marketing, and Internet-marketing solutions. We take an integrated approach in satisfying our clients' needs."
As Jamaica continues to grow in it technological capabilities, Brissett has taken the initiative, along with his team, to venture out and seek opportunities.
"Our clientele includes a diverse list ranging from micro to large businesses worldwide. We set the website-quality standard in Montego Bay and on every website project with visually professional and user- friendly interface. We provide full website packages, not a per-paper design. We offer seven free valued services to all website development, and our prices are unbeatable."
The lack of opportunities, according to Brissett, does not mean there are no avenues to encourage youth, especially young men, to channel their creativity energy.
"Yes, there aren't many oppor-tunities out there for young persons in Jamaica, but that doesn't mean we should stop looking. You have to be proactive and try, try until you see that window of opportunity. Once you see that, don't look back," he advised.
