The career of Blake King, Atlanta marketing guru, began in earnest way back in 2009, after he graduated from the University of Georgia at a time when the job market was one of the most difficult, after the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. After a long job search, he finally found an opportunity in the financial services industry, where his passion for helping people really showed. Blake P. King’s first position back then involved assisting individuals when it came to reducing the size of payments on their financial liabilities. He found himself capable of lowering monthly payments for his clients, or even lowering their interest rates. All this got clients out of debt more quickly than otherwise, even as they discovered more money to spend on things they wanted, or things they felt brought value to their lives.
One reason Blake King has been successful in the financial services industry and in the marketing industry is because he possesses a natural ability to articulate his ideas in ways that makes sense, which brings them the best value. Most of what he does is sales and marketing is based on his personal philosophy that, if you what you are selling has value to the person to whom you’re selling it, it almost doesn’t matter what the product is. The customer or client simply has to believe they need the product. Blake truly believes that such a thing cannot be taught in a sales school or a seminar; it’s only learned through experience and practice.
At the heart of Blake P. King’s belief system is his seeming certainty that giving back to the community that has provided him with so much is the most important thing a person can do. He feels there is a lot to be grateful for, so he feels an obligation to do more than sell people things they need. He credits the grace of God and the kindness shown him by many people for everything he has. He also supports charities in the Atlanta community and nationally. Among his favorite organizations to support include Habitat for Humanity, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Atlanta, the Friends of English Avenue and Buckhead Church.
