About Me

Curt Maly – CBDO ~ Curt has always had a knack for sales. His first job at age 15 was as a Telemarketer selling subscriptions renewals from a call center located in Yutan, Nebraska. During Curt’s days in Corporate America, he has worked in a consulting capacity with the likes of Apple, Microsoft, the United States Postal Service, and the National Rifle Association, as well as a handful of other large and small clients you may or may not know. Regardless of the client, the outcomes of his efforts were always the same: creating a process utilizing the latest technologies in order to increase sales to surpass client’s expectations.

As a real estate investor on Austin, Texas, Curt found that he could utilize nontraditional means of advertising and stand out from his competition in order to buy and sell more houses. Eventually, Curt fell more in love with the marketing aspects of utilizing web 2.0 strategies to perform real estate transactions than real estate itself. Thus, he and fellow real estate investor Nick Bridges both created a company, Black Box Social Media that would be dedicated to assisting other business owners in the creation and implementation of a marketing plan that would utilize the latest technologies in order to generate more profits. As a student of the web 2.0 platform, Curt has developed multiple social media marketing strategies that are designed to generate more leads and close more sales in today’s tough economic climate.

Curt has been featured in a national real estate infomercial as well as a contributing author in Mark Victor Hansen’s book, Writings From the Heart, which also featured contributions from the likes of Jim Rohn and Jeffery Combs.
