I am a digital problem solver turned serial entrepreneur with over 15 years of experience starting, managing and growing online businesses including eCommerce, Marketing Agencies, Affiliate Marketing and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). I’ve started over dozen online businesses as a bootstrap sole founder, forcing me to not only wear nearly every hat you can image a startup would need, but also strive to achieve profitability fast. Among all of the hats I’ve worn, I’m most passionate and experienced with Product Strategy, SEO, Growth Hacking, Revenue Strategy and Conversion Rate Optimization. These are the jobs and roles I’ve found lead companies to the fastest long-term success. I am currently working with several businesses as a Growth Hacking consultant, and co-founder/partner in a handful of other startups.
These are the values I live by:
Founded, lead and grew Bytion, a management company, into a multi-million dollar company. Bytion was founded to manage the operations, growth and revenue of multiple online businesses and digital products. As CEO, I was responsible for growing the company, building the team and strategic planning and execution to achieve quarterly goals.
Devumi was a Social Media Boosting service provider founded in 2011 and growing to become among the largest companies in the industry within 5 years, serving over 250,000 paying clients worldwide. Devumi was shutdown in 2018 after falling victim to a credit card and PayPal blockade as a direct result to false, inaccurate, and/or exaggerated allegations and claims by the media.
Founded three separate crowd-sourced download / link sharing websites. Built a? large 150,000+ strong active-member community and over 60in about 1 year. Implemented creative means of generating revenue, including affiliate marketing.
German and I have known each other for over 7 years, and he’s probably one of the smartest guys I’ve ever met. He’s passionate, dedicated, loyal and candid. When it comes to work, German’s the type of person who becomes obsessed with “solving the problems” and really diving into the customer’s shoes. The guy lives to work.? Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen him work less than 100 hours a week. When he’s not working though, you’ll find him reading, spending him with his family or cruising around Denver in his One Wheel.
German’s is the most hard working, dedicated person I’ve ever met.
Having worked along side German over the past several years, and having had the opportunity to witness success and failure in both professional and personal contexts, I am consistently surprised at how fiercely he resolves to persevere and beat the odds while energizing and inspiring those around him to follow suite.? He is an accessible administrator with proven executive acumen?able to navigate and overcome complex corporate obstacles with poise and resoluteness.
German?s ?out of the box? approach to problem solving, has pulled the company from the brink of certain catastrophe, having the tendency to turn the most improbable loses into sweeping wins.? Situations matching the aforementioned have taken place a few too many times to discount them as mere luck. Indeed, his consistently sharp performance and marketing prowess are unrivaled, and I?m fortunate to be able to consider myself as one to profit from his example.
A highly approachable leader to junior staff, and an inspiration to his senior level peers, I highly recommend German Calas as a highly capable visionary and executive and see unbridled success in his future, should he persist his current trajectory.
