Jason Hope Is One Important Innovator To Watch

Ever since Jason Hope was a child, he had an insatiable fixation on technology and the transformational role it played in people’s lives. Growing up, he voraciously read such publications as Popular Science, Nature and even technical journals for engineers and computer scientists. It was with this foundation in and acute enchantment with the turning gears of science that he went about setting his own wheels of innovation to turning.

A history of foresight
After graduating from Arizona State University, Mr. Hope founded his first startup, a mobile content provider called Jawa. Jawa provided ringtones, music and videos to cell phone users on a proprietary interface that made downloading and payment as simple as a few clicks. This would all sound largely unremarkable until we consider that Mr. Hope was doing all this in the late 90s, 10 years before the first iPhone hit the shelves and long before the majority of people even had cell phones.

Mr. Hope’s crystal ball, which allowed him to apparently see trends decades before they manifested, has not failed him since either. He’s founded various firms including a highly successful search engine optimization company that has helped thousands of clients rank their websites on the first page of Google as well as a number of B2B mobile applications and industrial software solutions.

Despite all these successes, Mr. Hope sees them as being absolutely nothing compared to what’s coming. Currently, he’s preaching the gospel to a flock of techies and internet-savvy entrepreneurs through his guest blogging and writing efforts on a number of sites from Wired to his own blog, JasonHope.com. Hope is proselytizing audiences to the technological rapture that he sees in the coming widespread adoption of the Internet of Things. Hope says that this new networking paradigm, more than just a logical extension of existing infrastructure, will represent a transformation as profound as the Industrial Revolution.

Hope states that the Internet of Things will usher in efficiency gains and reduction of labor demand that will be totally unprecedented in human history. He is profoundly optimistic that this will lead to such things as the 15 hour work week, once dismissed as Utopian fantasy.

A Reputation Management Firm Gains Huge Honor

Status Labs is a company that has been given a great deal of media attention. President Darius Fisher invested much effort into promoting Status Labs as one of the top reputation management firms in the industry. A series of digital marketing industry awards have cemented the already solid reputation the firm possesses. Now, a new accolade has been given to Status Labs. The highly-prestigious Inc. Magazine has placed Status Labs on its “500 List of Fastest-Growing Companies“.

Inc. Magazine is a highly-respected print and online publication filled with tremendous advice for entrepreneurs. The magazine has thrived in all sorts of different economic trends and landscapes. Status Labs’ winning of this award is only going to help the company grow even more. Inc. Magazine would only acknowledge a company known for its solid merit. Status Labs should ride a nice publicity wave with this award.

And the honors are based on the empirical figures of Status Labs’ tremendous growth in a very short period of time. Between 2012 and 2015 the company achieved a growth rate of 1,099% in revenue. That would be impressive under any circumstances. What makes things even more impressive is 2012 was the first year the company was in operation. To grow so significantly so quickly is a rarity in the business world. Even a business that has been running successfully for a decade would not necessarily reach such massive increases in revenue.

The growth of Status Labs in the market does reveal there is huge demand for the services Status Labs offers. A good reputation is a must for businesses to thrive in professional circles and to attract customers. Individuals also avoid a host of hassles when their personal issues are not out there for the whole world to see. Status Labs is able to help businesses and individuals deal with their concerns through performing effective digital marketing, SEO, and public relations.

The search engines may create a perception that can be unfair. At least the ability to change what appears in the search engines — and perceptions — is possible. Status Labs has proven this to be true.
