Josh Stalets established Be Better Advertising in May of 2010. It was originally called 121 Marketing – derived from One to One Media – an eBay business that was the beginning of my ( Josh ) entrepreneurship journey.
From 2010 to 2016, the company ran with mild success from part-time freelance help. As a company culture and values started to form, a name change was needed to better represent the company. It was renamed to Be Better Advertising to represent our constant desire to grow & learn (be better) both as people and for our clients.
From January 2016 to September 2017, Be Better Advertising experienced exponential growth, going from 1 full-time employee to 33 full-time employees and making the list of Inc’s Fastest Growing Companies in America. However, I failed to put the proper Operations / Company structure in place to contain the growth successfully, and we had to restructure in January 2018.
Since then, I have learned a massive amount of what *not* to do and we are successfully growing again. Something we had a lot of success (please see our Glassdoor reviews) with were our people and our culture. We only hired an average of 1 person for every 1,000 applicants and that priority towards hiring showed in the company every day.
Every person we hired on were rare, unique, extremely strong individuals, and I did my best to treat them as such.
I’d like to be extremely transparent about the company history, as you are most likely a potential employee looking to join the team.
What you see is what you get with me, and my promise to you is I will make this the best job you’ve ever experienced.
