Meet Jasmine Sykes of JMarie Media

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jasmine Sykes.

Jasmine, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
My name is Jasmine Sykes and I go by the name JMarie. My business came about with my passion for writing and marketing. JMarie Media was founded in 2012, starting my career off as an editor for my magazine, JMarie Magazine. The magazine was created to become a platform for entrepreneurs in the Midwest region to showcase to the world what they had to offer. The goal was that the magazine would eventually expand nationally. That included doing live interviews via social media and Youtube. Well, that business required a lot of time and eventually, I wanted more.

In my hometown, Milwaukee, WI, I felt as if I had reached my capacity. Because the city was so small, there was no room for growth. I graduated from college with a degree in business and decided I had an interest in Public Relations. That is how the birth of JMarie Media came about. Another part of my success goes to the CEO of Duct Tape Entertainment, Big Bank. I was at one of his video shoots with Kandi and I can remember telling him I wanted to be in the industry and he told me to keep working hard and never give up on my dreams. Fast forward to today, I am continuing to expand my own brand, a well-respected publicist representing some of today’s largest corporations and most talented individuals in the industry. JMarie Media currently is the Number 12 Best Black-Owned Business in the West End of Atlanta, GA and Top 10 Best Public Relations Firms via Yelp in Castleberry Area of Atlanta, GA.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
One of the biggest obstacles that I have faced as a publicist is that many people don’t know the benefits of public relations. Just educating people on what a publicist does can be draining when those who do know what we do have been burned before. But the key is to make your work speak for itself. That way people open up and trust that we will take their business, product and service to the next level.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about JMarie Media?
JMarie Media is passionate about servicing businesses, brands and product services with exceptional customer service and integrity. Our business offers effective marketing solutions for entrepreneurs and small businesses. We create marketing campaigns and utilize marketing resources such as brand management, earned social media relations, image consulting, content leadership, and consumer stability and retention.

It is our great pleasure and gratitude to continue marketing campaigns for businesses to reach their targeted markets and audiences.

We are honored to be a service to others. The best medicine in life is laughter. Some may forget your name, the way you look, and even your conversations, but they will always remember how you made them feel. We take pride in making you feel your very best.

How do you define success?
Success is measured by the love you give. The amount of positive impressions, energy, and service you leave with people. No dollar amount can measure a successful person or business. If I can leave with you that you are worthy of love, and to find your niche in life and instill your greatness in others with your kindness. Then JMarie Media has gained success with love. The wealth will follow.
