Hi I'm Cody Mitchell (Friesen).
I always love the "about me” page on websites like this because they’re written in the third person …even though they’re typically written by the owner of the site.
So after Cody Mitchell made several attempts to sound smarter than he really is by writing about himself in the third person, he quickly abandoned that approach and decided to write this page like it was a letter to a friend.
Which ...in many ways, it is.
Anyway – what do you want to know?
I'm 25 years old and born in Winnipeg, Manitoba...
But I’m guessing that’s not the kind of stuff you’re looking for.
You’re probably wondering,
Is this guy worth my time and attention?
For many readers, my answer is NO.
If you don’t want to advertise, you’re not going to enjoy my stuff.
No, I don’t sell advertising. But here’s why I’m telling you this.
Start going down the “Internet Marketing” rabbit hole, and you’ll see all kinds of ads and articles about free traffic, how to get rich by having other people promote
your product, and all kinds of hype on the “latest loopholes” for “gaming the system”.
Does some of it work?
Probably. In the short term.
But if you rely on that, you don’t have a business.
You have an income stream that’s supported by an unsustainable gimmick.
And that is a waste of time. If you want to waste time go see a movie. It’s more fun.
You’re still here? Good.
So here’s what you can expect from me.
Proven systems built on fundamental principles to help reach your marketing goals.
Whatever that may be.
It's the old “Demonstrate You Can Help Them By Actually Helping Them” trick.
Works like a charm.
But you still might be wondering …
How do I know if you can really help?
Well, the smartest thing to do is to just schedule a free call.
After that call, if you think we can work together, I will send you an awesome proposal.
If after that call you don't think we can work together, then I won't.
It's quite fun.
But I think I’m supposed to do the whole “self aggrandizing biography” thing now so here goes:
I started my “Internet Marketing” career in 2016 when I stumbled across an ad for an "Internet Marketing" course.
The course was $97.
I must have read the sales letter for it 100 times before I bought it.
It was a good course, and somewhere there was one sentence that said something like, "They don't even teach this stuff in college".
My 19 year old brain translated that to mean, "If you can teach yourself Internet Marketing, you can get a digital marketing job without having to get a degree"
...which is exactly what I set out to do.
After 3 months of dedicated studying and learning through trial and error, I was able to get myself a job.
I landed, what many would consider, a dream job at a digital marketing agency.
The agency was small and I was only my boss' 2nd hire, but that was such a blessing in disguise.
Because for the next 2 and a half years, I worked side by side with my boss and watched how he grew his agency to what it is today.
Soaking in information like a sponge, I learned from his successes, from his failures. I learned what to do, and what to steer away from.
I was able to attend multiple marketing seminars, countless hours of specialized training and grew as a marketer exponentially.
Without trying to "toot my own horn", I would say I'm way ahead of the majority internet marketers of my generation.
I imagine not many 22 year olds can say that they've managed over $1,000,000 worth of ad spend across a 2 and a half year career.
Anyway -- Fast forward to today and you've got yourself a determined individual dedicated to helping businesses turn their advertising into profit.
Thanks for reading this page!
