Interview: Artist & Entrepreneur Graham Kramer

Hey Graham Kramer!

Yo! What’s good.

What exactly do you do for a career?

I’m an entrepreneur and business owner. Right now I own a venture capital firm that helps fund newer brands that I’d like to be a part of, other than that I do digital marketing for numerous company, some that include MTV, Allergan, Rolling Loud, Pink Dolphin, and many top tier DJs. I am also starting to get into making music as well.

What is the name of your company and what does the company do?

I am the founder of Kramer Advertising. The main areas of focus are marketing and advertising, social media and venture capital. From there we help companies get their brand exposed throughout multiple online social media platforms to help monetize their brands and scale them to be seen worldwide.

Where are you from? Where did you grow up?

I was born and raised in Palm Beach, Florida.

What are some brands you have worked with?

I’m a managing partner at Pink Dolphin Clothing. I also manage the social media marketing for Rolling Loud and Allergan.

What was the process for you to find what you wanted to do?

Most of my family is in business so from a young age I’ve always known that I wanted to start my own business. Around the time when I started brainstorming ways to go about achieving that goal, social media was starting to become a revolutionary force throughout the world especially for brands and companies. I immediately recognized how vital social media would become so I became a master at all things digital marketing and have expanded my company and expertise from there.

For getting into music, it was just me feeling inspired from working into the industry. I love music, decided I wanted to make it as well and bring my own unique sound.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

I love that I can help brands grow and reach their goals. I also mentor other entrepreneurs which I find extremely rewarding because I’m able to provide knowledge and experience but also learn from them at the same time. Also, from a music standpoint, having listeners connect with my music.

What does it take to be a successful entrepreneur and musician?

You must have tenacity in order to be a successful entrepreneur. Not all of your ideas or ventures will be successful. But instead of seeing them as failures you must see them as lessons and motivation to get it right next time.

Being a Musician can be very challenging as well. You need to fight through so many road blocks just to gain traction,

What is some advice you would give to a young entrepreneur trying make their way into the music industry?

Become a master at networking. Find a mentor and be willing to learn and take advice from others. Also, be prepared to hear “no” a lot, it’s just the nature of the profession. Let the “no’s” be your motivation. But most importantly, be humble – you could be the smartest guy in the room and have the most successful company but if people don’t respect you then none of that matters.
