Jan Jens Shares That One Trait That Helped Him Build a Thriving Company

Jatina Group had an exciting start. Jan says “I hail from Hamburg, a city in Germany where my father owns a construction firm that built reputed supermarkets in Germany. In 2014, I took a vacation to Miami, and I rented out a villa from a Concierge service that I found online. Their customer service sucked while I was vacationing, as they weren’t even picking up my calls. That’s when I felt by starting my firm, I could probably provide better service.”

Jatina Group has a substantial social presence on Instagram where they have a massive following. Take a look at @jatinagroup on Instagram to find articles of luxury mansions, exotic automobiles, and yachts which they offer as a part of their service.

Jan Jens is the Founder of Jatina Group Miami, which has been one of the fastest growing businesses for the last two years. They offer vacation rentals including renting out Mansions, Yachts, and Cars. Jatina Group is estimated to cross $10.5 million in revenue this year and has already made $1.5 million in sales via Airbnb. They have access to over 30 mansions and have 4 full-time workers.

On being asked what made him achieve his success in such a brief time, he responded “Focus! I understood its significance once I dropped it. I was into concierge services in the beginning, but then at some stage of my trip, I lost focus and started getting into the restaurant business which affected my company and failed horribly. I needed to rethink priorities and remind myself why I was doing great when I started, and the obvious answer was ‘FOCUS.’ I left the restaurant business, and then I focussed on Jatina Group. It began growing well, and I got a chance to connect with more people. Later, it helped me land enormous names like Drake, Justin Bieber, Kylie Jenner, Mark Wahlberg, Kevin Hart, etc.”

These days entrepreneurs are facing plenty of stress and anxiety. It seems like every day comes up with a new system to earn money and many entrepreneurs are falling prey to FOMO which is the fear of missing out.

“If you chase many, then it’s improbable you will succeed at any.”

Successful entrepreneurs who run multiple companies have focused on one company initially, and afterwards, when they had sufficient resources like money and talent, they leveraged those resources to move on to the next firm. ‘Focus’ is rare nowadays and is an essential quality for success in almost any area. Jan says that he could have achieved a great deal more had he not been distracted during his journey. It’s incredible to find entrepreneurs like Jan pivoting and learning things by themselves when they face roadblocks. During these times where every day a new industry is being born, growing a business and staying focused is tricky. It’s a fact they may go out of business or that a firm has to employ new technology, but this has to be done by making sure they stay focused on what’s working.

Jan’s story of developing a successful company is quite inspiring and is a lesson to be learned on the importance of ‘Focus’. When you live, breathe, and eat one industry and put all of your efforts into it, success is practically guaranteed. There are many entrepreneurs who started well and then ‘Shiny Object Syndrome‘ made them lose their ‘focus’ and eventually tampered their growth. Running multiple businesses might appear cool on social media, but entrepreneurs have admitted that they indeed felt a lot of stress running numerous ventures when they started and decided to proceed and shift their attention to one.

Report Shows Disney Dethrones Apple as the Most Intimate Brand in the World

Every year MBLM does a Brand Intimacy Study to find which brands customers are most loyal to. It is the largest study of its kind, surveying 6,000 consumers. Participants are asked questions about which brands they use regularly, how they feel about those brands, and if they feel that they could live without the brands’ products.

This year, Disney managed to top Apple for the first time ever. Other brands in the top ten list included Amazon, Chevrolet, Netflix, Harley Davidson, Playstation, and YouTube. To see all of the details, you can download the full Brand Intimacy Study on MBLM’s website.

It’s not surprising that Disney has built such a strong following. With the Avengers and the Marvel Universe rocking the box office, related merchandise, shows, and events are drawing in record-breaking crowds. And, this is only the cherry on top of the Disney empire.

Disney has been a household name for generations. From Mickey Mouse to Disneyland to the Disney Channel to Star Wars and on and on. Disney has been on a solid growth trajectory for years and there’s no end in sight. Part of the reason that Disney is so successful is that it prioritized its relationship with consumers.

Brand intimacy has a significant impact on a company’s ability to survive and thrive.

According to MBLM’s Brand Intimacy Study, building brand intimacy creates price resilience and builds customer loyalty.

According to Digital Authority Partners, when consumers feel a bond with a brand, they are willing to pay more for their product than the product of a competitor. MBLM says that many of these consumers are willing to pay up to 20% more.

This willingness stems from an emotion-centered marketing strategy. For Disney in particular, nostalgia plays a big part in their marketing campaigns. The longevity of the brand has allowed for devoted consumers to pass their favorite movies or toys on to their children through multiple generations. The desire to purchase a product is pursued by a child and a parent.

The ability to pass on this brand intimacy to the next generation is made possible by a willingness to keep up with new technology. If Disney still produced the same sketch-cartoons of Steamboat Willie, the company would have died out decades ago. However, Disney is always looking for ways to stay in the spotlight.

A great example of this is Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+.

The way that we view movies and TV shows is changing. Streaming services like Netflix and Hulu have paved the way for others. Disney, seeing this opportunity, has opted to remove their content from these streaming services so that they can remain exclusive to their own service.

Judging by the results of the Brand Intimacy Study, this will be a successful venture.

With big brands like Disney or Amazon, it can be extremely difficult to build a name for yourself as an emerging business. But, brand intimacy may be the answer to this problem.

It’s not enough anymore to have a good product. It’s so easy for another, bigger company to come along and start selling a similar product–and they already have the customer loyalty to back it up.

One great way for businesses to differentiate is to start building that emotional attachment with their customers by adopting a data-driven marketing approach. Business can build a connection by gauging customers’ interests with regards to what matter the most to them.

One strategy that has been leveraged more and more in recent years is the practice of giving back to a cause that a company’s target audience is passionate about. That is in line with recent report findings which show that Generation Z (young people aged 16 to 30) are particularly interested in giving back to the community according to a recent study.

To that effect, for example, Kool8, a company in Chicago that produces water bottles, has put in place a very clear give-back policy for their products. For every bottle that is sold, 20% of the profit will go towards providing clean drinking water for underprivileged areas of the world.

Another example is the Tiesta Tea Foundation. They work to support people in economic hardship, raise awareness and acceptance for people with special needs or disabilities, and also work to bring clean drinking water to developing countries.

These businesses go above and beyond distributing their product to help others in need and build brand intimacy. By working to solve problems that consumers care about, they earn their business and their loyalty. These tactics create an emotional bond with the product that the consumer would not typically feel with a new business or product.

Focusing on brand intimacy is a new norm for successful businesses. We’ve seen the success of a good brand intimacy building campaign from Disney, and you can bet that they are not going anywhere any time soon.
