What’s the story behind Judicious?
Judicious, Inc. is the result of our accountant recommending incorporation. I was starting to take on side work as a search engine optimizer in 2015 and I was running a legal directory. We noticed the name Judicious, Inc. was available so we ran with it. Also, our SEO processes are extremely thorough, so it was fitting.
What was the most difficult part of your experience in the early beginnings?
Probably stress. Too much work.
What are you most proud of regarding your business?
COVID. We were still busy when other agencies were suffering. We really do offer a unique service set. We don’t know any other agency around town that conducts search engine optimization audits as thoroughly as we do. We also provide top-notch longform written content.
What is your vision for the future of Judicious?
The vision of the future: Tying our work to helping the planet. That’s our “why”. This year we’re trying to get 9 other companies to match our 1,000 tree donation to One Tree Planted. In 2022, we’re hoping to get 99 companies to join us. If that’s doable, we’ll shoot for 999 companies in 2023.
What’s your advice for the businesses that are trying to adapt to this economic climate?
Come up with a strategy. We constantly see companies struggle that haven’t ironed out a business strategy. And honestly, this has always been a problem (even before COVID).
Please name a few technologies which have the greatest impact on your business.
I’d say our own proprietary technology and Google Docs.
