Today we’re excited to introduce Jam Genies: a network of world-renowned experts at the ready to help you build a better website. Whatever your website goals—increasing signups, sales or accessibility—there’s an expert genie who is available on demand to help you get there.

At Jam, we’re on a mission to help any team build better websites and products. As part of that mission, we want to build the tools (Jam) as well as broaden access to expert knowledge for our customers (Jam Genies). Most teams need outside expertise to help them improve their website. While large companies can afford to hire expensive and high-commitment consultants for help, small and medium-sized companies can’t. That’s why we built Jam Genies.

Say you’re a founder and you’re preparing to fundraise. With Genies, you can now book a session with an investor like Erik Torenberg and get his take on how your deck comes across to investors. If you’re having trouble with referrals, you can summon a growth genie like Nicole Obst, the former Head of B2C Web Growth at Dropbox. If you’re having trouble with making your onboarding flow intuitive, you can summon a design genie like Abe Vizcarra, the former Global Design Director at Snap.

What you’ll get with Jam Genies:

  • No commitments, no intros
  • A real-live human with robust experience
  • Assistance with your specific problem
  • Help when you need it
  • Easy, affordable one-time fee
