Hi and thanks for checking out my website. My name is Jon Payne, and I’m a small business owner and entrepreneur who specializes in online/digital marketing. This includes both inbound marketing for lead generation as well as e-commerce marketing. Want to learn more? Read my background and bio…
The majority of my career has been spent focusing on SEO (search engine optimization). I started an SEO agency in my early 20’s and then sold it in 2013. Since then I’ve begun to focus more on e-commerce marketing and specifically within Amazon’s third-party Seller platform (Seller Central).
I currently own and manage Vocational Media Group, which is an umbrella company that I use for both consulting services that my team and I provide, as well as several websites that we own and operate.
I also recently (in 2022) sold an e-commerce company, Net Focus Media. This was my primary business focus up until the sale was finalized.
I also built and then sold an SEO agency in 2013.

The Career Project helps young professionals and those seeking a change to figure out what type of career matches their interests and skill sets. We then help them go about getting the necessary training and building the requisite credentials needed to secure a job in that field. We believe that personality testing is a great tool to help match you to prospective careers based on your personality and interests. We’ve also assembled hundreds of career guides to help you learn about different careers, as well as thousands of individual job profiles which are interviews with real-world professionals sharing their experience in their current position.
