Throughout his professional career, Agam Berry has turned into an expert in digital marketing. Currently the co-founder of Quantified Commerce, he has helped the business reach new heights every single year.
With so much knowledge about Internet marketing, we were fortunate to talk to him and to get some insight directly from the source.
What attracted you to the internet marketing industry?
I have always been interested in technology, and that probably stems from growing up with a lot of access to computers. I actually studied mechanical engineering in college, but I’ve always had a thirst for learning about Internet marketing since I was a kid.
Once Quantified Commerce really started to take off, I fully immersed myself in the industry. It has worked out pretty well so far, but there are always new things to learn.
Would you describe yourself as an entrepreneur?
I guess by definition I am an entrepreneur, although I don’t think I’ve ever actually called myself that. It just seems a little bit weird for me to go around saying I am.
I will say that I took a lot of risk going all in with Quantified Commerce. I felt like there was really something special brewing, and I wanted to see where it would go. In a way, I guess you could say that I became a true entrepreneur after getting a taste for it early on.
If you had the chance to travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I’ve been pretty fortunate to go to different parts of the world already in my life, but there are still a lot of regions I would love to get to. I’ve spent a little time in Spain, but I would love to do a full trip to that region. Maybe see a few of the major cities in Spain, and then perhaps take a weekend trip to Portugal. I would love to go to that part of the world when the weather is nice to be outside.
Do you read for pleasure? What’s your favorite business book?
Unfortunately, I definitely don’t read as much as I would like to. It can be hard to read for pleasure with so much going on. With that said, the last book I read that really stood out for me was Good to Great by Jim Collins. As someone running a company, it gave me a lot of insight on what makes a great company and what holds others back. Hopefully, I am starting to apply some of what I read to Quantified Commerce.
Which business leaders do you admire the most?
I was a huge fan of Steve Jobs growing up, and I still admire him for everything that he did for Apple. He really set the standard for this age.
I also have to give credit to one of his biggest rivals, if you will, in Bill Gates. It might seem crazy to name those guys together, but they both brought great business ideas to their companies. They might not lead the exact same way, but they did so very effectively. There is a lot to learn from both of those guys, no matter what type of computer a person prefers to use on a daily basis.
