How Did Prosperity Media Start?

The founder of the business James Norquay started working in online marketing in 2004. James set up his own network of websites to make extra money while studying at university. Originally, James set up a site which offered free Myspace layouts to users as he saw a gap in the market. James realised he needed to rank for organic keywords in the US market to drive traffic to the sites using SEO methods. In addition to the Myspace sites, James made several music-focused sites which also targeted the US market and ranked for competitive terms, some of which beat out popular sites like MTV music. Self-taught in SEO by researching online forums, testing different methods, reading blogs and networking in foreign markets, he grew these sites to millions of visitors from SEO traffic. Some of his sites were acquired by media companies in the U.S, some still exist today.

Starting the SEO team for Columbus Search

In 2008 James joined Columbus Search, owned by Mitchell Communications Group, now Aegis Media. As a foundation member of the SEO team,  James was tasked to grow the business from no clients to a multi-million dollar business with a large headcount across Australia. James has worked on SEO & Content Marketing campaigns for clients such as David Jones, CitiBank, Woolworths, Virgin Mobile, Optus and many more large corporations.
