JM founder, Jonathan Patton, was recently invited to the Student Career Expo at the Mid America Center. It was the 3rd annual expo, and he spoke on entrepreneurialism and job opportunities in the Information Technology industry.
Here are some of Jonathan’s thoughts:
“It went very well actually. I’m exhausted though. It was four back to back presentations (with 5 minute breaks in between) and I’ve been up since 2:00am, since I wasn’t able to sleep due to being nervous (like I always do when speaking). I introduced myself to 400+ kids and then had about an attendance of 30-40 kids each session. I thought the presentations I did went well.”
JM Web Designs was recently published in the Omaha Chamber‘s 2009 “Extraordinary Opportunities” magazine, highlighting owner Jonathan Patton’s journey as its founder and the case study about JM published by Microsoft. The magazine is sent out to companies around the world to show that Omaha is a great location to have a business.
Part of building a successful growing company is bringing on the right people to fill necessary vacancies. Recently, JM filled two very important holes and we are excited to announce them to all of our friends and clients.
JM is proud to announce that our move into the new office is final and official! One of the things that excite us most about the new office is our opportunity to go GREEN. Some of our eco-friendly upgrades include new, energy efficient furnace/air conditioning system, bamboo flooring, energy saving lighting system, and water savers.
Though many businesses are forced to do otherwise, JM Web Designs is expanding its operations, as it has seen significant growth through this recession era. Brought on by a shift in traditional marketing paradigms, JM has benefited from a massive migration from traditional advertising to the internet, fueled by the ability to track all marketing efforts with hard, reliable data.
JM works hard to bring success to our clients not only in web design, but also through a multitude of other services. One such area is our Strategic Marketing service. We understand that we cannot be all things to all people, but we can bring all people together. In this case, Strictly Business provides the invaluable service of magazine advertising to a high volume business person readership.
Today Microsoft unveils their newest small business case study; the focus is on Omaha based JM Web Designs. After a thorough application and selection process, Microsoft chose JM among thousands of other small businesses. The steady growth and high client retention rate were improved by using Microsoft’s small business products, thus gaining the interest of the software giant. Once Microsoft heard the compelling story of JM’s conception, a friendship was made and a partnership was created.
On February 25, 2009 in North Platte, Nebraska the Center for Rural Affairs has invited 24 year old Jonathan Patton, CEO and Founder of JM Web Designs to speak at their state-wide convention. He will educate and inspire area entrepreneurs with his story of hard work and success.
Hey everyone! Last Sunday (2/15/09), JM was highlighted in a news story about two companies (us and EMask) who are seeing success in this economic recession. The reason for this, according to the story, is because of our focus on using the internet to increase our business.
After a thorough application and selection process, Microsoft chose Omaha’s JM Web Designs as the subject of their US Small Business Customer Case Study. Since being profiled in an article in Microsoft’s Small Business Advantage in 2000, JM Web Designs received national notoriety for its steady growth – even in the wake of the dot.com bust. In 2008 Microsoft visited JM’s downtown Omaha office to interview and film staff.
This case study, released in 2009, marked the beginning of a long dedication to serving Omaha with web design services that empowers businesses to grow. Today, as JM celebrates 20 years in business, we are still benefiting from the productivity Microsoft products and service give our team.
Since this case study on our small web design firm, JM has grown leaps and bounds. At the time, we offered strictly web design and web hosting services to the Omaha marketplace. Today, JM offers web design, web hosting and web marketing services. Under these umbrellas we are able to offer copywriting, video production, ecommerce solutions, Pay-Per Click campaign management, SEO services and much more.
In 9 years, our team has changed, our services have changed, but JM is still dedicated to being an endless resource for your small business and putting YOU online.
