E-commerce is undoubtedly the future of business. The swift technological developments and expansive growth of the internet have been major catalysts behind the sector’s growth. The many creative and innovative entrepreneurs in the space have also played a significant role in shaping and influencing e-commerce. Roman Cresto, the founder and CEO of Empire Ecommerce, is one of them. The 22-year-old entrepreneur established the 8-figure business empire and is now at the helm of one of the largest e-commerce automation companies in the United States.
Roman’s journey to dominating this sector started with a fascination for the potential e-commerce held. At 18 he dropped his engineering degree in college and moved forward in opening his first online store. After plenty of challenges and hours of mentorship, Roman has been able to hit numerous career milestones. His most significant achievement has been managing one of the largest business portfolios doing over $150 million in e-commerce marketplace sales on Amazon, Walmart, and Facebook. He also takes pride in being the CEO of one of the largest e-commerce automation companies in the US, managing over 1,500 employees spread out across the world.
While this huge success put Roman on the map, he’s not stopping there. His most recent company, Automators, is leading the charge in the e-commerce space. Roman established Automators with the sole objective of teaching other aspiring entrepreneurs to follow in his footsteps. Through this organization, Roman instructs others on how to start and scale their own ecommerce automation companies and manage clients’ e-commerce stores. He has developed well-structured programs that best suit the diverse market needs.
“Automators is the first and only company to directly demonstrate how to set up and scale e-commerce automation companies,” Roman explains. “I want to help others learn how to run ecommerce stores for clients and share the exact methods I’ve used to build and scale the largest e-commerce automation company in the world in just 18 months.”
Automators’ program provides valuable guidance, and at the same time acknowledges that success is never meant to come easy. Any experienced entrepreneur knows they’ll have to face numerous challenges and obstacles before hitting their stride. One of Roman’s major challenges in his career was keeping up with the fast-paced e-commerce sector. Initially, it was predominantly crowded with more experienced entrepreneurs. Being a young CEO in such an experience-rich field challenged him.
However, turning toward his network of mentors helped him turn the situation to his advantage. Roman leveraged the situation to learn from some of the best in the industry, significantly shortening his learning curve and speeding up his growth. Roman is an ambitious and forward-thinking entrepreneur who aspires to continue growing and expanding his industry impact. In addition, he doesn’t plan on limiting his expertise to just one line of business. Roman shares a plan to build bigger and more impactful tech companies in the e-commerce, AI, and financial industries. His goal is to start these companies and utilize them to help other entrepreneurs scale their start-ups to make the world a better place for everyone.
