Bookmark is the world’s first and fastest Ai-powered website and eCommerce solution, specifically created to help small business owners spend less time stressing about their website, and more time running their business.
Tell us about yourself?
I’ve been an entrepreneur my entire life. From the stereotypical paper-route first job, all the way to creating my first company at 22 in my parents basement & growing it to $60M in revenue with a 55-person team.
After moving on from my first company, I knew that my journey was far from over. That’s when I founded and established Bookmark, the world’s first and fastest Ai-powered website builder.
If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?
Sometimes you just need to jump. As startup founders and entrepreneurs, we can get so caught up in our minds about the “what ifs”. “What if” I don’t hit my yearly goals… “What if” my marketing campaigns fail… “What if” nobody ends up buying my product…
These types of negative thoughts are the first sign of you losing confidence in yourself and your business. And if you want to build and grow a company, your confidence is the key to success.
Try to avoid overthinking and over planning. When it comes down to it, if you have an awesome plan and strategy laid out, just execute it!
What problem does your business solve?
Many business owners out there struggle with their online presence. They may not have the design skill to create a responsive website, they might lack experience in HTML coding, or they simply don’t have the time get started with their digital presence.
In 2022, needless to say every business needs to be online. So, we spent years developing a cutting-edge artificial intelligence to solve all of these problems for them, and more.
With full eCommerce capabilities and every feature you need to succeed online, we save our users time, money, and stress in their entire online journey.
What is the inspiration behind your business?
I wanted to introduce an idea to the world that would help entrepreneurs, owners, and fellow go-getters like me in the process of growing their own business.
What is your magic sauce?
AiDA, our Artificial Intelligence Design Assistant, is Bookmark’s secret weapon. We have harnessed the power of Ai to put the power back into the hands of the small business owner. Now, anyone can start, build, and grow a business online all on one platform.
With AiDA, instead of worrying about those old boring templates, all you have to do is simply answer a few questions. Then, AiDA analyzes your answers, and builds a unique and responsive website for you right in front of your eyes.
The process only takes a few minutes, and you can repeat it over and over again if you want to see various options and choices. Its fun, it’s easy, and it’s Bookmark. If you’d like to learn more, go to www.bookmark.com and try it yourself!
What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?
The team and I at Bookmark feel so happy and fulfilled when our platform helps businesses bring their ideas, products, and services into the world. Being able to see people across the the world use Bookmark to follow their dreams is an incredible feeling that truly never gets old.
So, aside from always growing the platform, staying on top of trends, and building Bookmark… We look forward to helping more and more people reach their goals as they build and grow their online presence.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?
This message goes out to all the start-up founders, entrepreneurs, and small business owners out there: Nobody said it would be easy, so don’t give up when it gets hard.
Building your brand is a tough, long, uphill battle. There will be many obstacles you will face and each of them will push you towards giving up. Honestly, one moment doesn’t stick out to me. This whole experience had been a crazy journey.
It’s important to remember the reason you built your brand in the first place. Reconnecting with that passionate drive for success can help you reach the next level and grow your company to where you want it to be.
Bookmark is now 6 years old, and I still wake up everyday feeling like things are just getting started. Always keep your end goal in mind and don’t stop grinding until you get there.
Remember, nobody is going to put in the work for you.
How do people get involved/buy into your vision?
