In 2008, arguably the most challenging economic time for the United States since the great depression, Wisnefski started the company with limited funds, and just 4 employees. In 3 short years, that same company now employs 150 personnel, and is projected to gross $15 million in revenue this year, mainly stemming from their online marketing services. The journey of WebiMax has not only been a success story for Wisnefski, an Entrepreneur on his 3rd successful startup, but a success story for the company in its ability to maneuver amongst challenging times.
“Securing financing for small business loans in 2008 was the most challenging part of the launch of the company. However, my lending reputation (stemming from my 2 previous ventures) gave me an edge when I was in discussions with the banks. My advice to other aspiring Entrepreneurs is to always repay your bank lender loans as fast as you can”, states Wisnefski.
In 2009 and 2010, the company was still in its introduction stage, and clients were signing on as an accelerating rate. “We had clients calling us from all over the world, including Europe and Asia looking for quality SEO services. From there we just took off”.
As 2011 came, the company entered its most pivotal time, when Wisnefski decided a global
expansion was needed. “I recognized the need to open operations centers internationally due to the amount of global clients that use our services. In April, we launched WebiMax Australia, Canada, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Those offices are fully staffed, and up and running”, concludes Wisnefski.
As the company continues to progress through this crucial year, Wisnefski also reinforces his support for economic recovery and employment. Under his direction, WebiMax does not outsource any of their services to overseas vendors (as most SEO firms do), and instead hires only U.S. citizens. Their ability to recruit and hire the most talented personnel has been integral to their success.
