Helping Startups To 10-Figure-Level Companies Grow Their Brands And Influence With Military-Grade Digital Marketing Strategies.
I didn't know what to do with my public affairs, broadcasting, and digital marketing skills when I got out of the Marines.
After doing door-to-door sales for several years around the country, I became one of the world's first highly-trained digital experts in 1996. I still had a secret clearance at that time of leaving the Marines while we were in significant conflicts in Afghanistan and the Persian Gulf.
Who knew the kid from the inner-city who loved to read junk mail would wind up having to negotiate his own exit (an enforced military stop-loss "policy") from the Marines in 1999 after nearly losing his life several times in the combat zone and literally being in the desert by himself for over a month.
Mentally, I wasn't fit for duty after going through one of the most traumatic experiences of my life. Still unsure of my next move (or even where I was in life at that time), I joined the car business.
I sold cars and at one point me and a small team were selling up to 100 cars a month out of our small special finance department in San Diego. I knew how to run ads and we ran them in the PennySaver and niche publications as well as me beta testing a new lead generation system at that time called Ford Direct.
I also remember us getting leads via thermal fax. The paper was so warm it would curl up under the moving file cabinets when it fell, so we had to check two places, lol.
We had all the special finance departments in North and San Diego Counties at that time asking me how we sold so many cars (surprise).Click Here To Hear Fred Smith and Carl Schattke talk about Next Level CEO Association
If you're ready to take your business to the next level, but you don't quite know where to start, I definitely get it!
In 2003-04 I made a major move to Los Angeles to take a bigger opportunity and greater challenge at a large dealership that was selling less than 75% of the 600-plus new cars per month they were used to once they went through their buy-sell.
I took a single, virus-ridden computer out of a department (that was being held hostage by someone savvy enough at that time to know how to use the internet) and consolidated four departments into one. It went from me running "solo dolo" to me hiring almost 8 people in less than 7 months to handle the volume. We were responsible for 39% of the dealership's overall sales while bringing the dealership back to about 60% of its original selling capacity, despite vehicle shortages and misallocated vehicles.
During that time I also got my first shot at doing more traditional finance and insurance at that dealership versus the special finance way, diversifying my background and priming me for my next major opportunity.Join Our Free Facebook Group
Some Of The Strategies And Tactics I Train CEOs, Startups, And Even Companies Exclusively In The Online Marketing Space Include:
- Learning from a battle-tested Marine and CEO who can roll up his sleeves and put in work online and offline to see what's currently working in advertising, sales and marketing, and business development... and what's not.
- Getting access to organizational and business development and conflict resolution information that's tough to find yet explained in a simple, easy-to-understand way so you can apply it today.
- Transforming your business with high-level closing and communication strategies that work as seamlessly as Bumblebee transforming from car to robot when qualifying prospective clients.
- Getting inspired by someone who's been through the tough times and made it out of the desert... literally stranded... to being a positive driving force in the automotive industry for years without being salesy, pushy, or inauthentic.
And much, much more.
I promised God that if I got out of the Persian Gulf alive that I would spend my days doing good and serving others. And I do.Join Our Free Facebook Group
You're a business leader who wants to take your company to the next level, but you don't know where to start.
Me too. It happens to all of us. This time, though, you're just one degree away from an explosive breakthrough.
For one of my longest runs ever (10+ years), l took small startup teams and we scaled up insurance companies from scratch to over $100 million in annual sales.
All of them went on to become billion-dollar brands and are still in existence to this day.
Now that run is over, so I "ran home to momma" and went back to the source of where all of my successes originated. I put on my old, familiar hat became a modern-day digital marketing strategist to help others navigate their businesses and their lives.Join Our Free Facebook Group
