Big Ben Theories INC.

Name: Benny Rodriguez

Location: miami, FL 

Type of Business:
Bulk SMS Marketing Platform

What does your business do?
We offer a simple to use platform to allow business owners the tools necessary to run a mobile marketing program. We also have toll free numbers available.

When and why did you start the biz?
Big Ben Theories INC. was formed on 03/2012. We formed the business to allow my wife to stay home and raise the children. I started out creating websites and then moved on to providing SMS service to small business.

How Many People are in your Company?

Where's your office?
Our corporate headquarters are a 8' by 12' office that I built in our garage. Its pretty comfortable. The advantage of operating an "online" business is that much of the day to day operations can be done on a laptop anywhere in the house.

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
The toughest part is definitely acquiring new business. Being that we are providing SMS, we have come across some undesired customers. That then becomes a chore of having to verify that all our customers have legitimate uses and not trying to spam.

What's the most fun part?
I love it when I demonstrate the service to people who had no idea of everything they can do. They light up when they see how easy it is.

Anything you would have done differently?
not really. I feel I have done everything to the best of my ability and am happy with the outcome.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
What's next? Well as much as things change they stay the same. I plan on providing as many resources to my customers as I have available to myself.

What advice do you have for others?
Best advise I can give is, Make sure you do something you enjoy. If running doesn't bring you happiness you will not be good at it.

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
I use Idea Cafe to feel the pulse of other small business owners. Idea Press has saved me time and headaches when searching for advice and resources to help my business.

School (where, still in school, degree)?
Riverside Military School In GA. And Southwest Miami High

Prior jobs or business?
My first job was running a carousel in a mall. That was while I was in high school. I've worked at a flea market, forklift mechanic, diesel mechanic, and I had a prior business that installed security cameras.

Favorite Food?

What are your pets' names?
don't have any

Do any of these pets help with your biz?

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
My father. He came from Cuba after the revolution. The Castro government came and confiscated his sipping business. He cam to the US and built up his business again from nothing.
