Meet Jaden Easton: Co-Founder of an 8-Figure Information Publishing Company
Jaden Easton’s journey as an entrepreneur began at the young age of 12 when he was introduced to the world of website building by his elementary school teacher. While most of his peers were busy goofing off, Jaden was fascinated by the idea of creating virtual real estate that could be accessed by anyone with an internet connection. His curiosity led him to explore the subject further, and he began teaching himself web design by purchasing books from the local bookstore.
Jaden’s passion for website building led him to create websites for his parent’s close friends who owned businesses. Through word of mouth, he soon found himself with a steady flow of new clients. It was during this time that Jaden realized his love for entrepreneurship and the endless possibilities that came with it. This early success set the foundation for his future endeavors in the world of business.
After exploring web design, Jaden Easton shifted his focus to blogging and launched a site called iJailbreak. He saw an opportunity in the growing popularity of jailbreaking iPhones, which allows users to customize their devices and access features not offered by Apple. Despite not having much experience in blogging, Jaden put in the hard work and dedication necessary to make his site successful.
Within a year, iJailbreak became a hit, serving over 150,000 views per day and generating over $500,000 in gross advertising revenue. However, the success was short-lived, as jailbreaking became more mainstream and the need for Jaden’s blog decreased. Despite the setback, Jaden’s entrepreneurial spirit was not dampened, and he continued to seek out new opportunities in the world of business.
Upon completing high school, Jaden shifted his focus to affiliate marketing, a practice where you promote and sell other people’s products or services and earn a commission for each sale. In just one year, Jaden became a top affiliate and generated hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue. His success caught the attention of Mark Hoverson, a multi-million dollar online business owner, who wanted to meet him in person.
Mark’s story was particularly inspiring, having started his journey living in a trailer park with his pregnant wife and three children, and later building a thriving business empire. What impressed Jaden most about Mark was his ability to maintain a healthy work-life balance, his strong relationships with his family, and his diverse range of hobbies and passions. In just a short period of time, Jaden saw the type of life he wanted to live mirrored in Mark’s success and vision.
While working for Mark, he partnered with Chris Stapleton and Landon Stewart. They worked together to successfully grow Mark’s businesses, but sadly, Mark’s health began to deteriorate rapidly by 2018. In just a few months, he lost a lot of weight as the cancer began to spread, rendering him bedridden. As a result, Mark’s businesses began to suffer, and without revenue coming in, Jaden, Chris, and Landon’s savings dwindled. Unfortunately, Mark passed away in August of 2018, leaving the trio lost and unsure of what to do next. They took consulting clients to pay their bills and decided to step away from business for a while.
However, the entrepreneurial drive within Jaden, Chris, and Landon persisted, and by 2019, they knew they wanted to get back into building businesses. While they weren’t sure where to start, they did have one skill they could rely on: building wildly engaged Facebook™ groups.
In January 2019, Jaden Easton, Chris Stapleton, and Landon Stewart started their first Facebook group, Social Media Entrepreneurs, with the goal of sharing their knowledge and experience with others. Less than a year later, the group had grown to 18,000 active members, and the trio had made a few hundred thousand dollars from a handful of small offers.
The success of their first group led to the launch of Clients & Community, a company designed to help coaches, consultants, and agency owners start and grow profitable, client-getting Facebook groups. Within a few months, Clients & Community crossed its first $1 million in revenue, and Jaden, Chris, and Landon were able to enjoy the fruits of their labor with new cars and a stunning penthouse apartment.
Despite facing new challenges on a daily basis, their previous experiences prepared them to take on the world. Within 18 months, Clients & Community hit its first million, and within 24 months, they had made $9 million more. By July 2022, the company had collected $10 million in cash, with over 1,200 clients earning over $100 million in revenue collectively.
What’s even more impressive is that the $100 million is not Clients & Community’s revenue but their clients’, made up of hundreds of individuals earning an extra $30,000 to $100,000 per month from their Facebook groups. The success of Clients & Community has allowed them to grow their team to over 20 staff members and their Facebook group to over 44,000 active and engaged members.
Seventeen people have now achieved over one million dollars in revenue from their Facebook™ groups with the help of Clients & Community, and this number is growing by 2-3 more each month. While Jaden, Chris, and Landon are grateful for their own success, what truly brings them joy is seeing their clients transform from struggling to thriving, achieving record-breaking success.
