WHO AM I?
This is the blog of Brian Elliott. I am a web designer, social media marketer, video marketer and founder of Yahjam Web Services.
I hail from the small town of Falmouth in Trelawny, Jamaica, which is the cruise shipping capital of Jamaica.
In 2008 while operating a video and lottery store business, I decided to try my hand at creating websites online. When I started, I tried several platforms but settled with WordPress as it was the best blog platform available (still is). I subsequently created several websites, starting with a site for my photography hobby.
I then tried my hand at affiliate marketing and started building websites to make money as an affiliate. I had moderate success and I built up a good second income as an affiliate marketer.
In 2010, I started a news website for my town of Falmouth called FalmouthPO.com. It was tremendously successful as a means for Falmouthians all over the world to keep in touch with what’s happening back home. That website has since been given a new domain: Falmouth.news.
Over the years, I gathered tremendous experience creating, building, modifying, ranking and maintaining many different types of websites and blogs.
In 2011, I converted to the Christian faith. Almost immediately, I felt that I had to get out of the business I was in, which was a lottery business. Gambling and the faith are contrary to each other.
Consequently, I closed down the business I had been running since July 1988 and therefore had to find alternative income. I continued in affiliate marketing, but I didn’t have much love for it due to its unpredictability.
MY OWN DIGITAL AGENCY
It was not until January 2016, that I founded Yahjam Web Services, a business that encompassed the skills I had garnered over the years. The services I provide include Web development, web design, search engine optimisation, social media marketing, video marketing, graphic design and more.
This blog is to further share the knowledge and experience with others. There are many who are looking for the relevant info that I can provide.
