Stuart Crawford has built an international business helping other businesses grow and serve their customers. He also does it with a complete money back guarantee unheard of in this day and age.
He ran a successful technology services company, known as an MSP, for many years until one day he realized it was time to sell and also time to move from his home base of Canada to Florida.
Stuart shares with me how it knew it was time to sell, time to pack up and relocate and how he has learned to change the way he does business after a heart attack. He also shares tips for building your business online and offline because without the two, sales really do not keep building for a service based business.
When he was 18, Stuart Crawford had dreams of being a career soldier, so he joined the Canadian military. Over a nine-year period, he put his boyhood love of electronics and communication to good use first as a radio operator with the Canadian Artillery in Shilo, Manitoba; then as a strategic communications specialist in Penhold, Alberta; and finally, as brigade network administrator with 1 Brigade in Calgary, Alberta. Always civic minded, Stuart served as part of the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus in 1992.
In 2001, Stuart founded IT Matters, a Microsoft award-winning computer and technology partner, and served as the Vice President of Business Development for eight years. In 2009, he played a vital role in the merger of Bulletproof InfoTech and CompuConsult.com and helped the resulting new startup IT firm gain a competitive edge in the Alberta small-business community.
Today, Stuart serves as Creative Director and CEO with Sebring, FL and Fort Erie, ON-based Ulistic, a specialty firm focused on information technology marketing and business development. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience pertaining to how technology business owners and IT firms can use marketing as a vehicle to obtain success.
Although his passion still revolves around using technology and electronics, this global IT community leader has shifted his focus serving the IT business community, entrepreneurs, small-business owners and marketing executives. He teaches them how to maximize their online marketing, social media, search engine optimization, how to communicate their expertise to the marketplace and serve their clients more efficiently. His unique ability to see past the Internet enables Ulistic’s clients to balance the online and offline worlds. Contact Stuart at www.ulistic.com
