Welcome! You have found me, because you know who I am. I will still introduce myself, since you may learn something new that could be useful in evaluating whether or not I can help you with your professional needs. Continue reading to find out who I am, what I can offer, and how these might meet your business needs or you can go straight to booking a consultation session with me.
I cannot help everyone with their business or professional needs. I will not put out an unending list and then say everything else included… You have heard the saying, “a jack of all trades, a master of none” And I believe in this proverb. Let me tell you first off the kinds of people I cannot help. Then I will give you some ideas about what I can do for you.
I am not trying to scare you off by this list, but I am being practical. People I cannot help have the following attitudes:
- I’ve got it all together and know more than you.
[if you know more than I do about business then I should be hiring you.]
- I’m not in it for the money.
[My family depends on me to provide for them and yours does too, even if your family is only you.]
[If you are dishonest, you should protect yourself by not even contacting me. I do not show mercy on the dishonest.]
- I’m just trying to make a little bit of money here and there.
[My job is to help you make more money. If you do not want to, then you would be fighting against me and I will fail. I do not like failing.]
Some ideas of what I can do for you:
- Beat your competition
- Double your client base
- Evaluation of ideas for profitability (in the real world)
- Client building offline
- Development of Web Presence for conversion of leads and prospects
- Create and organize marketing campaigns for efficiency and effectiveness
- Developing a pitch deck for investors
- Collateral development and deployment to enhance ROI
- Real world market research for discovery of new opportunities and clients
- Sales Team building and deployment
- Marketing automation
- CRM customization
- Marketing team training
- Outsourced Master’s level programmers with European degrees to cut budget by 60-70% for many kinds of business projects
While this list is not exhaustive, it gives you an idea of the areas I may be able to help you with. Contact me to discuss your particular needs and explore whether or not and how I might help you or you can go straight to booking a consultation session with me.
My name is Ron Craig and I have been in business since 1998.
My first company was an IT firm in Seattle, near Microsoft. I serviced small businesses in Seattle and in a community to the north, called Bellingham.
In 2005, I took advantage of the pending membership of Poland to the European Union and set up a Business Development firm that functioned as a proxy with western companies. My research had revealed that the Polish were, at the time, the second slowest at acquiring English in the E.U. I took advantage of the opportunity as an American business man in Poland. That is where I won my largest accounts: Sony, Merck, Avon, and Nestle. I also assisted on consulting for my first political project, a European Union Parliamentary candidate in Poland. I also helped small business with their development.
In 2014 I re-branded the Business Development firm and relocated it to Los Angeles. I began developing businesses in Los Angeles. I have helped many startups in many sectors, not only IT. Health, Video, Ad Agency, Casinos, Web Apps are among a few of them.
I was hired as Campaign Manager for Ron Gold for Attorney General 2014 Primaries to win him the seat with the Republican Party. We beat the favored candidate Phil Wyman with a strategy I created for targeting counties based on statistical calculations I made and with a mass email campaign of 1.5 million emails sent in 2 days. The email campaign had approximately a 93% through rate around the server level spam filters of such Email services as Gmail, Microsoft, and Yahoo.
In 2015, I opened a project for educating Americans in Web Application Programming and placing them in jobs. It is completely online, modular, very affordable and it is intended for non-programmers. It gives them a chance to change their career path and earn a respectable amount of money for their families.
In 2016 I started my first partnered firm in PVC re-purposing in Los Angeles. We are looking to set up a factory in Ukraine for importing originally manufactured furniture into the E.U.
I also assisted a rehab startup targeting pharmaceutical addictions in Orange County. As the CMO, I performed executive duties coordinating meetings, branding, financial projections and pitchdeck for investors, locating prime real estate for the building of a hotel class facility and office complex, and establishing tools for team communication and file sharing for security and privacy.
In 2017 I spent the year in Ukraine on a new project. 3 months of interviews I conducted with CEO’s and founders of IT firms led me to create an outsourcing firm for American and Western companies (mainly SME’s and startups) to hire programmers. My firm reduces the budget and simplifies product development.
Along the way, I have serviced many individuals trying to create businesses. Some of these have been various artists, but many are just your average person looking to make a niche for themselves to create an income and be their own boss.
“Business opportunities are like buses; there’s always another one coming.” —RICHARD BRANSON And if you stand by and watch the buses go but never get on one or you get on then get off at the next stop to go ride another bus, then you never get to any destination. You wander around.
The difference between doing business in the moment or doing it in the task is in our relationship to the passing of time and to the task. If we are in the task, then we do not notice the passage of time. As time passes unnoticed, we miss opportunities within the passing, invisible moments [a …
