Jaco moved into the field of web hosting in 2003 when he decided to explore its passive income potential. Teaming up with Joshua he set out to market and grow Lusion Technologies amongst web development companies and freelance designers. This proved to be extremely successful as Jaco had built up many contacts within this industry. Using his knowledge in usability design, functional testing, branding and marketing, Jaco assisted Joshua in creating Lusion Technologies flagship reseller hosting software and sourcing South African design and development businesses to utilise this software and increase their bottom line. Up to now, this system has been extremely well received.
