Fiffik Law Group understands the issues associated with forming, operating, and growing small businesses because we have years of experience in representing thousands of them. We make an effort to support local and small businesses in as many ways as we can, and one of the ways we do this is by spotlighting one of our clients’ exciting new businesses every month. This month, we are shining the spotlight on Adams Media, founded by Pittsburgh native Joshua Adams.
Joshua Adams was inspired to begin Adams Media during the summer between his junior and senior year as a Marketing major at Penn State Behrend. While working as a server at an Italian restaurant, he offered to handle the restaurant’s marketing by running their social media accounts and producing promotional videos for them. From there, Joshua attracted more and more clients from local small businesses asking him to run their marketing and produce content for them.
“I am a 24-year-old entrepreneur, turning businesses into online trends,” Joshua says. “Since I began my business, I have been working with one goal in mind: creating beautiful, unique and thought-provoking videos and visual content to generate leads for local businesses.”
As much as Joshua enjoyed the work he was doing for local businesses throughout his senior year, he decided to take a sales job after graduation to save up money. However, he quit just six weeks later to pursue his passion full time. Part of pursuing his passion meant officially making Adams Media into an LLC. Luckily, he found Fiffik Law Group to help him form his LLC and write up a contract for his current and future clients to sign.
“Most law firms won’t give you any additional advice unless you pay more, but Fiffik Law Group makes an effort to have a relationship with their clients,” Joshua says. “Money isn’t the first thing on their mind.”
Joshua continued to acquire new clients through referrals and word of mouth. He markets himself as a fellow entrepreneur rather than an impersonal agency. Business owners can see the positive results Joshua’s other clients have received from his work before they jump on board – especially those that are unfamiliar with the benefits of modern marketing and may be wary of extra costs during a pandemic.
“Marketing your business successfully can be one of the most challenging tasks for a business owner, Joshua says. “Luckily, now you have me! I have mastered the skills to create your brand into an online masterpiece.”
Currently, Joshua has six full-time clients, and he continues to offer consultations and one-time projects such as videos. He has worked with clients in a variety of industries: Real Estate, Restaurants, Crypto and NFTs, Athletics, and more. As his company rapidly grows, he is looking to hire more passionate and talented marketing professionals so that he has the capacity to take on even more clients and projects.
“I am passionate about creating engaging stories for audiences around the world to enjoy,” Joshua says. “I work closely with my clients, always putting the business owners plans and vision first.”
