Bryan Kos, President and CEO
Bryan Kos President of Internet Promos, LLC has been involved in sales and marketing since 1984. He has built three multimillion-dollar sales organizations through utilizing his extreme talents and understanding of consumer buying behavior to close on mass sales opportunities. In early 1991 he targeted the new industry of Pay Per Call and 976 / 900 number dating services. Bryan put together Joint Venture partnerships with some of the largest newspapers in North America including Lescher Communications Group in California, Torstar, Inc. (owners of "The Toronto Star" the largest newspaper in Canada), Southam, Inc. (owners of "The Ottawa Citizen" and many others) and Quebecor Printing. In total, between 1992 and 1994, these contracts commanded over 15 million dollars in sales in an industry that did not exist prior to these partnerships.
Bryan's next accomplishment came in starting a North American based seminar company to sell Business Opportunities through direct and telemarketing sales. This company marketed directly to the public home based business opportunities. From 1995 - 1997 Bryan spoke to hundreds of thousands of opportunity seekers as a Professional speaker for both his 900 # service bureau and also for some of the largest Home Based & Investment Opportunity companies in North America, including The Charles Givens Organization (previously mentioned above) and The Vision Group of America. It was not uncommon that in one night to sell between $28,000.00 to over $50,000.00 in sales.
In 1996, due to Bryan's extensive understanding of opportunity and opportunity seekers, he began Internet Opportunities "IOPS" and it's spin-offs Internet Promos, LLC, Investment Opportunities, LLC, TheLeadSystem.com & XTR Capital. All of the Internet Properties of IOPS serve one major goal. Promote the Financial interests of IOPS clients through building a solid cross-promotional marketing system of awareness for its clients.
