About Chris Stoikos: Chris Stoikos is a serial entrepreneur and chief executive officer of Dollar Beard Club. He is the archetypal “mover and shaker” with a number of entrepreneurial credits to his name. His true genius lies in the ability to creatively market and commercialize products, and in building and maintaining teams of experts to run businesses independently. Despite his youth, Chris brings a practical knowledge of business in tandem with a firm grasp of market psychology for a younger and “hipper” consumer base. Chris is a highly regarded serial entrepreneur with two successful exits under his belt. He is an expert at creating and organizing dynamic teams that can execute business ideas quickly and effectively, and set them up to be self-sustaining organizations.
In June 2015, Chris and his team launched Dollar Beard Club – a subscription men’s grooming Box Company. He applied his formula of video creation to build a massive community around his brand and quickly turned their customers into a cult following. Operating with a broken website, hardly any paid traffic, email marketing, or affiliate marketing, they pulled in $10.5 million in sales within their first year of business.
By the age of 28, Chris has been responsible for over 100 million video views, tens of millions of dollars in sales, and has even landed a deal on ABC’s Shark Tank in April 2016 for Coolbox, a product which he’s now since licensed.
The formula that he’s perfected for producing viral videos has built an extensive base of raving customers, bringing in massive returns on investment. This formula is now something that he is looking to share with the world. Video is the future of content, and Chris’s mission is to change the way that companies interact with potential customers. To lead in this movement, he has created the media and events company Unconscious Content in which he intends to change marketing forever, and for better.
