Our Story

The Snaptactix story begins with an entrepreneur whose skepticism was outweighed by his curiosity and drive.

In 2009, Jimmy Kim started his journey into the internet marketing world by joining an affiliate network. When asked for a company name he improvised, choosing “JK Marketing.”

Fast forward to 2015 – 6 years and 30,000 students later, Jimmy Kim’s online “hobby” had become a full-fledged business, supported by an entire team. Recognizing the potential for growth still ahead, the company was re-branded and Snaptactix was born.

Today, we strive to increase the accessibility of online marketing, regardless of background or tech proficiency. Our team leads by example, featuring a mix of seasoned marketers, designers and creative talent from other fields, providing our customers with versatile and multi-faceted solutions for any online business.

Snaptactix is designed for anyone with a desire to be successful online – for curious, driven entrepreneurs who dream of paving their own way.

Meet The Team

Jimmy Kim

CEO and Founder

Originally from the Washington DC area and now located in Sunny San Diego, Jimmy Kim started his career washing cars at a local dealership at the age of 16. Rapidly, he transcended and at the young age of 25, he became one of the Youngest General Managers in the industry. However, the lifestyle this position demanded – working at least 80 hours a week and committing ones entire being to the profession – began to take a huge toll. Close to completely burning out, Jimmy altered his course and took on an entirely new career. Incorporating his proficiency in sales and marketing, he immersed himself into the world of Internet Marketing.

7 years later, Snaptactix CEO and founder, Jimmy Kim, has taken his career and dedicated it to becoming an expert in Email Marketing, Copywriting, Backend Monetization and Mastering Funnel Development.

Jimmy’s entrepreneurial spirit has not only awarded him the role of CEO for Snaptactix, but he is also the CEO of Sendlane.com an Email Service Provider and the COO of KNYEW, a Las Vegas based clothing boutique.
