Jon Clark – The Story
My name is Jon Clark (I’m on the left in photo with good friend Dana Zezzo from Jetline Promo) … and I’m the brains, heart, sweat and soul behind Palm Tree Promotions, Inc.
I’ll spare you a lot of corporate-like bluster about my business successes, credentials and accomplishments and blah blah blah. Boooring. Here are just the “good parts” you might find interesting …
I actually got into marketing by NOT getting a marketing job.
It was like this … I answered a classified ad for a sportswear embroidery company…they didn’t hire me. That didn’t stop me, and my entrepreneurial nature kicked in …
See, for me it was love at first site of the concept of corporate apparel … and that day I went and found three clients on my own, wrote up the orders … and went back to present them. THEN they hired me.
How I started my company – twice
I was working for a company in Sacramento, CA … where I had spent more than two years building kick-butt client relationships. Well … the company was sold twice in one week.
Rather than waiting for the fates to decide, I took my future – and that list of clients – into my own hands. I fired off a sales letter to those clients … and crossed my fingers, prayed and did just about everything outside of a rain dance (okay, I’m exaggerating a little there), when…
Bam! That letter generated instant business and taught me a valuable lesson about the effectiveness of direct mail. Within a couple of years, I was able to increase my sales beyond my wildest dreams.
Six years later, I was looking for a new challenge. Never being shy of taking risks, I sold my business and moved my family to Florida (even though we didn’t know a soul) and started our new adventure from scratch – with zero revenue.
In a very short time, I was able to equal – then exceed – what I had going in California.
What’s my current situation and how can I help you?
After another 15 years of raising kids and building a business in Southwest Florida, we decided to relocated to the thriving metropolis of Orlando, FL.
