bold boy with big ideas
From Kid Hacker to Entrepreneur
While other 10-year-olds were outside riding bikes and playing ball, Wilbur You was inside, coding.
His favorite game was in need of some upgrades. So he did just that. Turns out, it was a solution other players were looking for. His game mods exploded in popularity, and Wilbur got a taste of bringing solutions to a target market for the first time.
A few days later, Wilbur was in his room, tapping away on his keyboard, when his mother’s shriek from downstairs startled him. “WILBUR YOU, GET DOWN HERE!”
Awaiting him at the bottom of the stairs was a cease and desist letter from the original game developers.
Needless to say, he was grounded. But knowing he made such an impact was the start of an entrepreneurial dream.

My experience with Youtech has been nothing short of amazing! They exceeded my expectations with how well and often they communicate with us about our campaign. Great results too. Thanks Youtech!
From our website to our SEO, email marketing, and social media management, Youtech has kept AHG at the forefront of the gaming industry.
For being someone that doesn’t know too much about technology and digital marketing, I chose the right company to help us. Our little company is doing great thanks to your efforts!
Awesome services and digital marketing strategies. never had a negative experience!
I work with Eric at Youtech for my Google placement program and Google ads. I must say they work very hard for our company and have really gotten great results. I am not a very technical person, but Eric includes me in all the decisions for our company and shows me everything in very easy to understand terms. He makes suggestions based on technical research and after implementing these changes, he watches the results on a daily basis to keep fine-tuning our program. I really could not be happier with the individual, personal attention Youtech offers!!
Cannot say enough positive things about this company. Extremely responsive when you have a question and/or need updates on a site. Face to face meetings are awesome and this company is not afraid to do this rather than a webinar. They are fully redesigning my site and have been handling my SEO/PPC for almost a year now. My business growth with them is fantastic and couldn’t be happier. Special thank you to Eric, Bart, and Wilbur for everything.
