Budai Media was founded on the belief that every modern ecommerce company should adapt to market changes fast if they want to outgrow their competition. And if you like going fast, you must be an unlimited thinker.
Are you bored with marketing and business books?
A few years after I founded this agency, I got bored by traditional marketing books and most business books. They repeat the same principles over and over again. So, I decided to get deeper and wider at the same time. I got back to such foundational books as “On the Origin of Species” or the biography of Benjamin Franklin. Also, I read the favorite book of Elon Musk, “Structures” and other books about mechanics (and if you think that books had a major effect on me as the founder of this agency, then yes, you are right).
Going back to the basics while studying other areas of science and life is the key to being innovative and adaptable.
Just think about how many innovations from the army or elite sports now are part of our modern lives in the last few decades.
At Budai Media, we are lateral thinkers, we go back to the basics of marketing psychology while we also get wider and think holistically. If anything changes, you don’t have to worry because we understand the whole ecosystem not only one channel like most marketing agencies.
Also, while we are flexible, we have robust systems to make sure no detail escapes our attention. Wonder why? When we started out, we made a few crucial mistakes.
To be honest, these almost ended my career.
So, we sat down with our team and we kept only one thought in our minds: “Planes don’t crash, why should ours work?” (planes are much more complex structures, right?)
We spent long weeks creating long checklists and manuals and training materials for the team. And we keep updating them regularly.
And two years later, we have a system that has a 99.8% accuracy while still being custom-tailored for every client of ours.
We don’t have these complaints anymore, in fact, many 7 and 8-figure clients became our best advocates.
But all of these were worth nothing without one thing:
We must always remember that every client success story means a fulfilled entrepreneurial dream, countless new workplaces created, and millions of consumers’ lives impacted.
