The Kids are Alright: Two Gen Z Cousins built a Multimillion Dollar Marketing Company

Twenty-two and twenty year old cousins, Zohaib Patoli and Bilal Patoli respectively have made themselves leaders in an industry previously dominated by Boomer and Gen X marketing executives that aren’t quite sure to market effectively to the younger generation. These two have created more than one multimillion dollar business, leading them to mind-blowing successes that most business and finance majors can only dream of. Through their newest creation, LeadOrigin, they are on the verge of digital marketing transformation.

After getting involved with entrepreneurship while the two were still in middle school, Zohaib started at 13 with an affordable jean business that hit a whopping six figures within the first year. Through a series of business ventures, he built multiple successes in less time that it takes for most people to get one business off the ground. Bilal built his first E-Commerce business on eBay when he was 14. He began to study and recognize potential value within specific consumer markets and started reselling imported goods from China. He was generating $80,000 a month and scaled his business with Shopify and solidified his first brand successfully ten months later.

The two cousins joined forces not long after their first successes and founded WithPort. This company focused on launching e-commerce concepts. With innovation and intelligence backing both founders, they generated a combined revenue in the first year of nearly two million dollars. In various categories, both Zohaib and Bilal have launched and succeeded with over thirty e-commerce businesses in a very short amount of time.

One day a light bulb went off. At 17 and 16 years of age, the cousins founded an SMB-focused full-service marketing agency: SnapWeb Services. Zohaib and Bilal grew SnapWeb Services from a simple concept on paper to a multi-million dollar agency within four years culminating in a fruitful exit. Literally, what started in Zohaib’s bedroom had grown to multiple offices around the globe! Since its start in April 2017, Zohaib and Bilal have driven SnapWeb Services to the top ranks of Houston’s best marketing agencies as rated by The firm was also awarded Agency of The Year by Design Rush and a place on the 2020 Forbes Agency Council. SnapWeb Services has been able to drastically enhance the bottom lines of companies within the E-Commerce, healthcare, automotive, education, law, pharmacy, and energy industries – just to name a few.

The two entrepreneurial starlets have now exited from SnapWeb Services and are currently leveraging their expertise, youth, and experience to launch LeadOrigin. This digital transformation firm will serve as a portal to achieve modern E-Commerce concepts and implement cutting-edge marketing solutions. Through disruptive strategies tailored to each unique brand, LeadOrigin is helping new and existing businesses exponentially boost their ROI, while reaching new audiences and optimizing overall marketing methods in the ever-changing digital age.
