At 17 years old, Ben Fisher combined SEO and content marketing techniques to build his first successful business: a network of video streaming sites that generated over $50,000 in the first 3 months. Realizing the value of SEO, Ben dove headfirst into perfecting his skills and two years later, put those skills to work on a new project. In anticipation of the iPhone 5’s release, he built a blog that reached the #1 spot on Google for “iphone 5”. The site pulled in over 250k unique visitors per day, and Ben was able to net almost half a million dollars in ad revenue within 6 months. Over the next few years, Ben worked with over 100 businesses as a highly regarded SEO consultant. While he was able to drive some massive wins for his clients, he found that many of them lacked the in-house talent needed to launch and sustain content marketing campaigns. To solve this problem, Ben co-founded Gurus NYC in 2014. The agency launched exclusively to brands in the New York area and has since expanded its client base to healthcare and nonprofit companies nationwide.
