Hack to Start Ep.123: Justin Brooke, founder and CEO of the Digital Media Buying Institute

Hack to Start

Justin Brooke is the founder and CEO of the Digital Media Buying Institute.

Brooke is a high school dropout who got into construction, but he’s always had a passion for marketing.
Now, after more than 10 years in the business building and growing his own agency, managing over $10 million in ad budgets, and travelling the world, he’s now building his own startup platform.

Justin launched The Digital Media Buying Institute or DMBI earlier this year. He’s already broken six figures in revenue — twice.

With more than 2,500 students and growing, DMBI is the world’s most updated online advertising courses platform.

Justin joins us to share his story, the challenges he faced in building a services agency, the creative tactics he leveraged to acquire some of his biggest customers in targeted niches, what it was like spending over $10M in online ads, the biggest mistake he’s seen other digital marketers make when it comes to online ad buys, the challenges of scaling a platform business, and much more!
