Gallant Dill, The Modern Day Entrepreneur
2/26/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) -- Gallant Dill is a natural entrepreneur. After deciding not to follow the traditional college and 9-to-5 path to success, a young Gallant Dill instead chose to follow his instincts and launched his first business at age 17, cleaning docks.
“I lived near Lake Travis in Austin and worked to keep the docks from breaching shore,” Dill said.
In true entrepreneurial fashion, Dill began launching additional ventures, including marketing and promoting new music artists. Dill began to notice that his approach to marketing artists could also be applied to marketing products.
“I started with an energy pill company, and those same techniques that got my artists million-dollar record deals put the product in thousands of stores.”
Since then, the 24-year-old business prodigy has provided consulting services for dozens of brands. While he has always loved product marketing, Dill also noticed void in the product marketing space that he’s been able to capitalize on through his latest venture, InStoreConnection.com.
“What I couldn’t fathom, with the more companies I met, was the difficulty to access a simple, clean path to market. Especially for new companies trying to bootstrap it from the bottom up. So I created this.”
Essentially a business Rolodex in digital dashboard form, InStoreConnection.com boasts over 1,000 direct contacts to some of the most influential retail buyers, including Walmart, Target, Chevron, 7-Eleven, Circle K, Whole Foods, Saks Fifth Avenue, 99-Cent Stores, Albertsons and Food Lion. InStoreConnection.com also offers email scripts, phone scripts and investor lists.
Through what Dill refers to as his “toolkit”, Dill’s extensive contacts, proven techniques and unique insights offer solutions for companies that don’t have hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend on trade shows, sales reps or expensive consulting firms. As InStoreConnection.com has placed hundreds of products into thousands of stores already, it’s easy to see why products have been successful using Dill’s system why Dill’s success would inspire others. With this venture in particular, Dill is enjoying not only success but also the opportunity to give back.
"InStoreConnection.com is supposed to be something else,” Dill says. “I don’t want to tower over anyone else; I want to build them up to the level I achieved. The path I followed can work for anyone. It doesn’t need a million dollar budget.”
With a Midas touch for business in multiple arenas— including public relations, web development, social media marketing, consumer packaged goods, launching new music artists— Dill has managed to achieve a common result in his businesses: extraordinary and uncommon success.
