At 21 years old, Ben Jeffries was the founder of one of the UK's largest influencer marketing companies. Influencer is a new web platform that allows brands to collaborate with social media content creators.
Ben Jeffries experimented with his first business venture, Breeze, when he was 16. It was at this point he had the idea for Influencer since Breeze attempted to advertise through ‘micro-celebrities’ who came with a loyal fan base but without the “premium” price tag.
Having previously studied for a Bsc in Business at the University Of Bath before suspending studies to focus on Influencer, Ben Jeffries was shortlisted for the Virgin Media Business “VOOM 2016” competition and became the winner of Young Start Up Talent 2016, where he secured £50,000 worth of prizes.
Shortly after this, he made the decision to go onto Crowdcube to secure his first round of funding. Within 24 hours, the £100,000 target was exceeded and within three days he hit £152,000 from 139 different investors.
Alongside these achievements, Jeffries’ agency has been profitable from day one with six-figure revenues and lays claim to an impressive roster of clients including Uber, Badoo and Primark.
