Russ Ruffino is the founder and CEO of Clients on Demand. In 2001, he graduated from University of California, Los Angeles with a bachelor’s degree. Before starting his company, Russ was a bartender for ten years so he could support his financial needs. At the age of thirty-one, he resigned from his job as a bartender with only $500 in his bank account and decided to pursue online marketing to make money. He started his journey by creating and selling the product but online made $160,000 in the first six months, and then started his life-changing journey from there. Russ is currently living a happy life in Los Angeles with his wife and two sons.
In September 2010, Russ created Clients on Demand. He developed eBook and video courses, sold them online to help others, and made huge sales out of it. In his new venture, he invested all his time and money in launching new products and services, then marketed them online in the best ways. As he was launching new products online, he realized people would buy his product but wouldn’t use the products in effective ways. So, instead of launching new products, Russ started providing services to his clients so he could satisfy their needs in the best way possible, rather than selling products to them. Thus, providing services instead of launching new products for the clients was a huge success for Russ as he was making more money out of it and clients were happier than before. Russ’s coaching and courses help his clients to figure out what they are good at and then focus on their interests. Russ’s services to his clients (business owners) include: marketing of the sales system, how to set it up, and how to attract consumers.
Ruffino’s method of serving his clients doesn’t rely on a slow way of online marketing, instead he shows client’s fast and effective results. His methods work like delicately engineered clockwork which helps in attracting the client and serving them well every day.
Instead of putting cheap advertisements on the internet and newspapers, Ruffino’s way of attracting clients is by helping them with the specific services they require and then serving those clients well so their needs are fulfilled. Thus, Russ’s company Client on Demand guarantees reliable client growth and exceptional service. Clients are happy to pay high rates to receive high-quality personalized service.
Russ Ruffino is all about reliability when it comes to serving his clients. By knowing all the currents trends in the market, he forms the perfect strategy for his clients to serve them well and that’s the main reason he switched from selling his products to providing personalized and interactive service to the clients so they can make the most use out of it.
Personally, I am impressed with the achievements of Russ Ruffino. Going from a part-time job as a bartender to owning a company which generates more than $200,000 revenue per month. The company has an astonishing growth rate in such a short time. In the first five months after the launch of his company, Russ Ruffino generated $250,000 revenue and took off from there. I believe Russ’s unique way of helping his clients and thinking outside the box lead him to his success.
Clients on Demand has a good image and most of the clients are satisfied with the service of the company. The company was honored 186 in “2017’s greatest entrepreneurs Inc. 500”. It was 186th fastest growing company in America with the 2.326% growth rate in the last three years. The company generated $4.6M revenue in 2016 and is forecasted to double it in 2018. If the company keeps growing like this the company would generate billions of dollars soon.
In the beginning, when Russ first launched his product it was a huge success in the market which I believe was because of his providence. After the success of the first product it gave Russ confidence which he needed and from there on I believe he made all his decisions based on his intuition which helped his company to grow. So, I would say his luck helped him in the beginning and his intuitions to make right decisions helped him and his company to grow at a much faster pace.
One of the important lessons I have learned from this research is that to be successful in life, one should think outside the box and come up with new and creative ideas. Additionally, I also learned that online marketing is taking over the world and to be successful in it one should come up with unique techniques to serve their clients better like Russ Ruffino. Lastly, Russ’s decision of switching from selling products to providing services to his clients shows that maintaining and building healthy relationships with the clients is more important and profitable than just selling products to them. This means an entrepreneur should always value their clients more than the product itself.
