It’s hard to imagine that social media was once just a place for connecting with friends and sharing your casual thoughts. Few could have predicted that it would become such an integral part of our modern lives. However, the importance of social media is keenly understood by today’s young entrepreneurs as they have used these platforms to rise to the top of their industries. David Kang and Marty Evan Jacobs are two such entrepreneurs who have built their success within the digital world, and they both believe that in order to dominate your industry, you need to master social media.
Known as ‘Mister Investor,’ David Kang has built an empire within the investment world by teaching aspiring investors how to dominate the stock market and build a legacy of generational wealth, just as himself. Marty Evan Jacobs was only 15 years old when he turned his passion into a profession. An avid fan of fishing, Jacobs created ‘Fish Free,’ a lifestyle brand that caters to fishing enthusiasts worldwide. He is currently dedicated to investing in and supporting small businesses.
Both David Kang and Marty Evan Jacobs agree that success in today’s digital world is measured by your ability to make social media work for you. David Kang explains that the rise of personal branding has made social media essential for every entrepreneur and business. He says, “The days of faceless corporations operating behind closed doors are gone. Social media now allows for engagement and transparency between brands and customers in a way that was never possible before.” Marty Jacobs agrees with this insight and adds, “For a brand to survive in today’s world, it needs to be a living organism, reacting in real-time to every single trend and change in the world.”
David Kang further believes that becoming verified on social media helps brands reach a higher level within their industry. He expands on this by saying, “Attaining that coveted blue badge of verification on social media grants even the smallest of businesses greater standing in their industry.” Marty Evan Jacobs believes that we are going to see an even greater emphasis on the power of social media in the future. He opines, “With constant innovations and updates appearing daily and increasing use of social media in every aspect of our lives, it’s clear that social media will only become more powerful.”
David Kang and Marty Evan Jacobs believe that social media, having evolved from being just a tool for communication and connection, is integral to success today, regardless of the industry.
