Jacob Guthrie, an incoming junior communication studies student, is not waiting for his Westmont degree to launch his own business. The young, tech-savvy entrepreneur, who turns 20 later this summer, founded 805MediaWorks, a marketing agency focused on Southern California’s thriving real estate market. The agency offers realtors, as well as other businesses, a wide range of creative services including professional photography and videos, social media content, graphic design and marketing. 

“There have been so many technological developments in just the past couple of years, especially when it comes to marketing real estate and creating a recognizable brand,” Guthrie said. “As young people who have grown up with social media and online marketing campaigns, I really feel that we bring an understanding of how to use this technology to bring the most value to our clients.”

Guthrie, a graduate of Foothill Technology High School in Ventura, worked at Rincon Strategies before starting 805MediaWorks last summer. His aerial drone videography of staged homes at twilight are worth a visit to the company’s social media accounts. 

805MediaWorks currently serves all of Santa Barbara County, Ventura County, Calabasas, Beverly Hills and Malibu.
