About Strategic Marketing Coach

"The amount of money we make is proportional to the amount of value we create for the world"

While most try to create businesses to make money, I strongly believe that money is a side-effect of creating value

I also think a lot of value can be measured in small portions for many people or big portions for a few people. If you combine these two and manage to create big value for many people, you can reach the level of changing the world. Elon Musk comes to mind as an example.

That said, my vision for the “Strategic Marketing Coach” platform for the moment is to create as much value as possible for a small number of people. People that I consider friends, colleagues, and maybe part of my “tribe”. A tribe of people that I can be part of their success and each one’s success will increase the success of the whole tribe.

Strategic Marketing Coach is the platform I use to achieve my goals by helping you achieve yours

The faster I can show you how to overcome the obstacles that prevented you from building a thriving online project that supports you, your life, and your family, the faster you’ll be able to focus your time on making even bigger contributions to the world will have a lasting impact.

My Philosophy is to give away 10X more value than I ask in return. It’s that simple! Strategic Marketing Coach is my way to channel back the best training, resources, and tools created to make world-class online projects accessible to as many people as possible.


Meet Photius:

So, welcome! I’m Photius D. Mata (fun fact: my name actually means “the enlightened” in Greek).

I started learning about business and entrepreneurship 14 years ago when I started my marketing studies at the High Technical College of Athens (currently called the University of West Attica). A big disappointment expected me there as, instead of learning about business and marketing and entrepreneurship, the education system was full of unnecessary knowledge of Algebra and Macroeconomics… May be useful in the long run but not enough to fulfill my dreams of entrepreneurship.

I was then convinced that the only way to learn was to self-educate myself, study successful entrepreneurs, business people, and philosophers to create a growth mindset and reach independence while still young.

If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants

I have studied hundreds of successful people that I consider my virtual mentors. From Marcus Aurelius, the Stoic Emperor of Rome, to Sir Richard Branson, Tim Ferriss, MJ DeMarco, Eben Pagan, James Altucher, Matt Stone, Napoleon Hill, Og Mandino, Eckart Tolle, Josh Waitzkin, Malcolm Gladwell, Stephen R. Covey, and yes, even Sir Isaac Newton from which the above quote comes from.

But the whole knowledge of the world is pointless unless used for a purpose. It wasn’t until 2014 that I found the courage to expose myself to the world and prove that theoretical knowledge actually works. And I have to tell you this: It’s a different thing knowing the path from walking the path. My biggest lessons came from my biggest mistakes. For every success I had, I would count numerous failures.

My girlfriend at the time, one of the smartest persons I have ever met, had a business idea and asked for my help. I gathered all my knowledge and channeled it into a system to help her create a business and grow it. Her determination, combined with practical strategies and methods, grew the business up to 100K in revenue in less than 8 months. That’s when I started getting emails from people asking me for business and marketing advice to teach them how to be successful in starting and launching their own businesses using my techniques and formulas.

I’ve been privileged to work with some amazing people. I’ve devoted several years of my life to create systems that include my best strategies and techniques for online projects and marketing that help entrepreneurs build and grow their dreams.

How can I help you?

You’re maybe in the wrong place:

  • If you’re looking for a magic bullet to get rich quickly, then I cannot help you. If you’re not prepared to commit to doing the work and effort required, we’re probably wasting both our time.
  • If you’re looking for an easy way, I cannot help you. Why? Because there’s no “easy way”. People who look for easy ways, shortcuts, and “hacks” try to avoid doing the work, and entrepreneurship is not a place for lazy people. You have to commit; you have to invest time, money, and efforts to succeed.
