It’s very common for someone to hear a saying like “No one has ever filled a safe by playing it safe,” leave Connor Gilson’s mouth. A strong believer in risk and reward, he not only teaches it he lives it. From the age of 15, Connor began working in the sales and the computer field.  Connor graduated high school at the age of 16.  At the age of only 18 he opened the marketing and business consulting firm CG Consulting.  Now, at age 21, he throws his youthful vigor into the industry and his work with a fiery passion, quadrupling his income year after year.  His talents have attracted the eyes of companies such as Google, Facebook, Ubisoft, Gameloft, Toyota, Subaru and Pepsi, just to name a few.

Connor started out by working with small companies to build them from the ground up.  Even though he had great success with these companies, he found that working with companies with bigger market shares utilized his skills to a more proper degree. He tries to help his clients understand that marketing is a big puzzle. You cannot strike it rich with only one piece of that puzzle.

Connor will turn down work at a cheap price if he knows it will never produce results. When he first started in business, Connor would run all aspects of the business himself.  Connor eventually learned over time that, in order to be very successful, you have to figure out what you’re good at and concentrate on that.  That is exactly what Connor does.  Being a natural leader, Connor leads his company from the front and, in his words, finds people who are 200% better than him at certain things and hires them to work for him.

Even though Connor does not do everything himself anymore, there are a few things he does with the highest level of expertise, such as Mobile website design, SEO, and Ad Management.  All of these aspects of the business are directly handled by Mr. Gilson.  In addition, on-ground services such as staff examination, customer retention and problem management are also handled by Connor.  Rest assured that other things, such as main website design, video creation, and direct mail marketing campaigns are all done by Connor’s highly skilled team of experts.  Connor has three teams of around five people, each just for web design. He therefore still offers a one-stop solution for everything a business needs without falling victim to the “Jack of all Trades, Master of None” problem that you see too many consulting firms fall into today.

Connor has always believed in giving his clients his unbiased attention. Rather than having to deal with a sales person or customer rep every time you need to change something or have a problem, you, as a client of Mr. Gilson, will always be in contact with him. No one in his company is ever to take the place of working with clients on a personal level.  Connor believes that if the owner of a company is going to take the time to meet with him then as the owner of his own company, that he should personally meet with that client, not a representation of himself on his behalf.

Running a business without marketing is like winking at a girl in the dark. You know what you’re doing but no one else does.
