Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessica Smalley-Perry.
Hi Jessica, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers.
I started my company in Ohio in 2005. I wanted to offer games at affordable prices for everyone!
I was blown away by what people were charging for Cornhole Boards. After my divorce, I moved home to Florida and was selling my games at the flea markets. I met my husband in 2010 and he took my games to the next leave with his craftsmanship!
In 2020, we had our best year in sales during the pandemic. I left my full-time job in 2022 to pursue my games full time and launch Game Ads! Advertising on all of my games in the area’s hottest establishments!
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
We have had a few bumps in the road. In 2015, I had to have major surgery and was out of commission through our busiest time of the year! My husband helped hold things down until I made a full recovery!
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I help companies get their brand in front of new customers by putting their advertisements on Cornhole, Giant Jenga, Para-dice, Ring-toss, and other games in their targeted area’s HOTTEST locations! I specialize in very low-cost interactive advertising in busy bars, restaurants, and establishments.
I am known for being who you call for a good time!!! Because of my games of course! After all, I am the game lady!! I am most proud that I have developed this company from the ground up! I also take pride in knowing that my children are watching their mama grow our gaming empire!
I am known for giving games to local establishments for free! I offer a free no hassle maintenance program on my games that are being advertised, and I offer the most inexpensive way to get your brand in front of customers in an interactive way!
Are there any books, apps, podcasts, or blogs that help you do your best?
My Bible and Jesus give me the most inspiration!
Great friends that are also GREAT mentors! They know exactly who they are! Collaborating Collaborating Collaborating!!!! And having watched my mama raise very strong independent children.
Last but not least my husband has literally supported me when I need him to, led me when I needed him to, and given me all the space to flourish when I needed him to!
- Ad space on games starts at $45 for 6 months.
