The 4RD Marketing Story
In the beginning…
Since the internet has been available to the public, Joshua Jarvis has been online trying to figure out how it works. While at college at Georgia Tech
, Joshua completed web development contracts and digital marketing (of course back then, they just grouped all the online community into “web designers”). Around 2002, something called the “dot com” bubble burst and Joshua found it much harder to find these contracts. Instead of changing industries completely, Joshua founded Jarvis Team Realty as well as an e-commerce import store.
As a real estate professional (and to a lesser extent the ecommerce business), Joshua learned what it means to be a small business owner and eventually what it means to have employees and co-workers that count on you as their provider. During this time Joshua leveraged his digital marketing skills in the Atlanta area to be his lead generation source for his businesses.
Joshua became well known in the real estate industry for his technical abilities and was asked to be a speaker at Keller Williams conferences as well as the national conference, Xplode
If there’s one word that defines Joshua, it’s growth. He’s constantly trying to improve himself, whether it’s spiritually, physically or entrepreneurially. Ultimately, this growth led Joshua to be a consultant to small businesses.
4RD Marketing is born.
At the time, Jarvis Team Realty’s slogan (still is) “Moving Families Forward.” It only made sense for the marketing company’s name to be 4RD (Foward) Marketing, with a very similar purpose, “Moving Businesses Forward.” (Incidentally, Heroic Event, Joshua’s non-profit’s “slogan” is “Moving Purpose Forward.”)

How I Went From Atlanta SEO Expert To Multi-Million Dollar Atlanta Real Estate Company Owner.
I graduated from Georgia Tech in the heart of Atlanta about 15 years ago. During this time I did digital marketing and web development as a freelance contractor (before anyone coined the term SEO Consultant). My specialty has always been with technical SEO and UX. IF you remember, 2002-ish is when the “dot com” bubble burst and I went from immediately having too many clients to no one. I began competing with SEO consultants and web marketers from India, Pakistan and other places. At the time companies were firing and outsources so fast and furious they weren’t taking the time to see who was the best SEO company but rather who was the cheapest.
I got my real estate license and starting generating leads using my SEO skills and applying them to real estate SEO. I took on a few clients from time to time in the Atlanta SEO market but only just because I love this stuff!
Now a full 15 years later I’m taking all the experience as a small business owner that I fueled with purely organic SEO efforts and using those same SEO tactics and tools for Atlanta based companies (as well as worldwide).
