It’s not everyday you find an artist who’s good at their craft but also second-to-none when it comes to selling. And if there is one example of such a person is the Canadian native, Ambro Di Pilato.
Di Pilato started his professional career focused in the art world. What started as a passion to bring together artists and lovers of art together, ended becoming one of the biggest art franchises in Canada. His franchise of galleries, AMBRO|GALLERIES; is one of the largest pop-up galleries in Montreal, Canada.
Promoting an event, especially in the art industry is a tough job. Without enough sales, you won’t make a profit, and you might not even be able to break even.
And if you think promoting an event is tough, imagine managing an event with 100 artists and over 500 attendees. That’s the challenge Di Pilato was able to overcome at a very young age.
Today, Di Pilato has transitioned his sales skills into his newest venture, The Stratton Sales Agency, a multi-million sales agency with clients across the globe.
“I wouldn’t have been able to be successful in the art world if I didn’t master the art of selling. It was here were learned a lot of the skilled that have allowed me to now transition full-time into The Stratton Sales Agency,” he shared.
To this day, Di Pilato has helped his clients raise over $23 million dollars in high ticket sales in just the first year that his sales agency has been in business.
“When I started my sales agency, I vowed to completely change the system and provide tons of value to my team members,” he said.
“The people who work alongside me are the reason my agencies are so successful. The number one rule in business is not to treat your customers great but to treat your employees great so that they treat your customers great,” he added.
For an individual so successful, Ambro Di Pilato’s humility and kindness is contagious. Being with him for a few moments, you begin to understand why he’s a master at selling. Not only is he likable, but he has the intelligence to back it up.
In today’s world, now more than ever, sales is a part of everyday life.
Whether it’s in your professional life, relationships, or anything in between, sales is at the core of it all.
