Christos Pittis is a social marketing extraordinaire. He offers the social marketing services that he provides through Fiverr. He’s also working on a start-up, which looks to expand and build a more scalable model of that website. He has two kids; a 7-year old daughter and a 5-year old son. Some of the activities that he enjoys most are walking, playing football and travelling. Christos grew up in Cyprus, Greece and still maintains a residence there, as well as working in London, England.With Fiverr, he started by offering $5 services and expanded to $10 and $20 ones. Now he’s looking to expand his sales funnel and is in the process of rebuilding his website and social media tools to include more content such as videos, downloadable material and podcasts.He enjoys working from home because he loves his kids and wants to spend as much time as possible with them. The most important thing to Christos is maintaining a proper work/life balance. He works on Fiverr for 4 to 5 hours a day, and spends the rest of his time at home with his family.
“I think a Diversity Dad is someone who keeps the balance with family and work”
Christos says he’s not afraid to fail and to make mistakes, which separates him from a lot of other people.
“I have made a lot of mistakes in my life, but that’s the reason why I am here today”
He’s trying to learn new things everyday and develop different ways of social marketing. With his first Fiverr gig, he changed the post description 20 times, while checking the analytics and reports to see the results of each change.
“It’s important to stay in front of the technology and the trends”
The one thing that excites him the most about being a dad is teaching his kids what he knows. Christos has his daughter watch him whenever he creates an Instagram photo. It not only shows his kids how to use technology, but also allows them to spend time together. He’s most proud of his children doing well in school and helping other kids do the same.
His biggest obstacle has been working too much and having multiple jobs, although he is trying his best to avoid this and spend lots of quality time with his wife and kids.
His one piece of advice to fathers is to have your kids understand the purpose of life and for them to set high goals for their lives. He wants his own kids to be good people, help others and to give love.
