How We Grew?
The founders of Global Presence, Jhael, and Jack Hakimian, informally established the company in 2007 while pursuing a Master's in Cross-Cultural Communications at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, CA. During this time, they delved into the realm of Open-Source CMS websites, mainly focusing on JOOMLA.
Initially operating as a membership-based nonprofit, the company was driven by how it could assist other nonprofits and churches in their growth. Jack was concurrently serving as a youth pastor at an Armenian Church in Glendale, California, where he developed a keen interest in digital communications.
In 2017, after relocating from Los Angeles to Miami, the individual transitioned from managing the business as a side project to fully immersing himself in the role of an entrepreneur. This shift was made possible through the support of his wife, who worked full-time to sustain the family.
The couple developed a deep admiration for the for-profit sector, recognizing the significance of work in people's lives. They firmly believed that honest, thoughtful, and hard work is a form of honoring God and benefiting the community. They emphasized the importance of work aligned with one's abilities and passions as a means to uplift individuals from various challenges.
Since 2017, Global Presence has experienced substantial growth, with an average annual increase of 100% to 300% in both clientele and revenue. Throughout this journey, the company has embraced a culture of continuous learning and improvement, constantly refining their processes to better serve businesses in generating leads, managing customers, and enhancing their overall growth.
Why So Motivated?
Jack is also a faith-based addiction recovery and marriage counselor, life coach, speaker, and chaplain with the North Miami Police Department. His experiences growing up in Los Angeles, being a member of the marketing and tech industry as a minority, and having a family that fled two civil wars have shaped his understanding of what is possible through hard work and doing the right things.
Jack is married to Jhael Hakimian and is the father of four boys. He is passionate about empowering individuals, families, and organizations and sees his work as a calling rather than just a job. Jack believes in forming mutually beneficial relationships with his clients and helping them serve their communities with their unique products and services. He is dedicated to reaping maximum results with elegance, creativity, and intelligence.
You can access Jack's personal story of transformation that was aired nationally on the 700 Club in 2009.
For Jack, empowering organizations and "movers and shakers" is not just a job, but a calling. He loves the work that Global Presence does and believes that every client they choose to do business with will have a mutually beneficial relationship. Jack and his team help their clients serve their local, national, or global community with their unique products and services.
They strive to be elegant, creative, and intelligent in order to reap maximum results. As their clients' organizations grow, Jack believes that Global Presence will grow with them, finding fulfillment in serving real humans who have a problem that needs a solution.
What Is Our Mission?
Our mission is to help companies grow profitable with our business development and marketing products and services.
What Is Our Values?
Marketing is not something a business does as a 6-month project, rather it is an essential aspect of a companies identity and function. Marketing is a culture committed to sharing their unique stories and knowledge with others. As people connect with your brand they buy into your products and services.
Software and automation exist and will evolve even further to help companies grow in efficiency and quality. Technology should help companies hire workers to accomplish tasks machines cannot, design with elegance, tell inspiring stories, connect with prospects, and empathize with the client's frustrations while offering authentic solutions. As Global Presence engages in AI research, machine learning, and automation, we pass on that knowledge to our clients.
Technology does not exist just for us as individuals, but for our global family. Our passion for people combined with our expertise in technology, business development, and design compels us to pass that knowledge on to others through our nonprofit Global Presence Network and in partnership with other community stakeholders. Technology education can lift people out of poverty.
What Is Our Focus?
Carefully analyzing our client's market demographics and past strategies/results, developing realistic KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) and client acquisition strategies.
Turning clients into company brand/product ambassadors is a missed opportunity for most businesses we help turn around. We change that by creating affiliate programs incentivizing them with vouchers and commissions.
