They say your network is your net worth. For Fotios Tsiouklas and Alan Gokoglu, they are on a mission to make it not just for themselves but also for their networks. They have already built a business worth over $5 Million and growing, and they are only getting started. The team has already been on national TV, Forbes, and Entrepreneur. They also have many awards under their belts.
The duo is under 20 years of age each, and have created a reputation for themselves even among high-end celebrities. In this article, learn how these business moguls are navigating the business world in tech, ecommerce, and social media, to rub shoulders with some of the most well-known personalities in the world. We will see what they have done and explore some of the critical elements behind their success.
Fotios and Alan are known for their innovative tech products. In 2018, they launched Clout The Game in collaboration with major artists such as Supreme Patty, XXXTENTACION, and YBN Nahmir. Two of which are in the top 20 trending artists in the world. They were able to accomplish this with the help of their business partner Kuei Kuei. The app hit the top 10 on the app store (in the All Apps category) across the United States with over 250,000 active users within 48 hours of launching the app. More artists have then joined the game leading to even stronger marketing campaigns.
In 2017, Fotios also built an app for celebrity Blac Chyna. He got the collaboration through Body Blendz, one of Australian’s largest skin care brands (owned by a local Greek friend), which is in every Chemist Warehouse nationally. He arranged tours for comedians such as Basile The Comedian, who he did the marketing for, selling thousands of tickets. Basile received over 200,000 views in Melbourne and 5,000,000 views worldwide through his pages Hellenic Clips and Fotios Tsiouklas.
So how exactly does this duo manage to work with high-end celebrities?
- Great networking – Just like I mentioned above, the gig with Blac Chyna came through a friend in the skin care industry. Fotios and Alan use their nightclubs in Melbourne to chill. They also have the opportunity to network with celebrities in the country. A lot of these celebrities end up working with their agency and clients. The two know how to connect and engage with people of a different caliber, which has had a significant effect on their success.
- Innovative ideas – From tech to ecommerce and social media, this duo is full of ideas. They have created multiple apps and online games, have ventured into online stores, and are big on social media. Just recently, they bought the domain name TikToks.com whose present value stands at over $145,000USD, and this figure is growing by the hour. They are also working on software that will make it easy for everyone to develop a mobile application. Apps4Brands, which will focus on businesses and influencers, will lead to a massive influx of businesses worldwide through the opening of endless possibilities in the app space.
- Investing in the right resources – Both Fotios and Alan started their entrepreneurship journey in their early teenage years. Over time, the duo has worked to develop their skills and expertise to an unbeatable level. Even the old guys are asking them for help. Currently, they “have a huge and very talented hand-picked app development team capable of building anything our imagination holds, as well as experienced designers and a great understanding of how tech products should flow and operate.”
- Go-getter mentality – The success that these young entrepreneurs have achieved is attributable to their go-getter mentality. They never stop to say that they have made it, but they are hungry for more. They are young and energetic and are determined to make a difference in the world while making a name for themselves. They challenge themselves to do more, and this is how they have been able to work with high-end celebrities.
