Hey

I’m Charlie

Cuick Media

I founded Cuick Media as a way to connect content creators on Instagram through monetization. Cuick is a collection of over one hundred creators with five million followers among them. Our team at Cuick generated revenue by selling large advertisements to our massive following.

Cuick was one of the original entities to begin large-scale marketing for sports media giant Playline. I ran Cuick for the majority of 2019 before focusing more on my next venture, Flex.

Flex Media Marketing

Flex is my more “hands-on” version of Cuick. My team and I at Flex run Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat advertising campaigns as well as work though social media strategies with our clients. At Flex, we have grown our clients’ social media presences by millions of real followers through multiple proven tactics. Check out a couple of our clients below: 

Monroe Engineering - www.askmonroe.com - We have grown Monroe’s social media presence from one hundred twenty to nearly 1.5 million followers and growing since we started with them in late 2019.  

(ACQUIRED) Sweet: Lower Phone Bills - www.savewithsweet.com - We have grown Sweet’s social media presence by two thousand followers in about a month as well as built them an Instagram marketing network of nearly four hundred ten thousand followers. 

“My experience working with Flex has been superb. Charlie has grown our social media following immensely. At Monroe, we pride ourselves on innovation, and we see Instagram as the next frontier of growth with endless possibilities. I am very glad Flex was able to show us the real potential of social media for Monroe.” -Garrett, CEO of Monroe Engineering

My Background

I began working on social media, primarily Instagram, in the fall of 2017. My good friend and I were growing sports pages for fun, when he received a message from a company called Bullpen Labs. Bullpen (now Wave Sports) wanted to buy his basketball page of approximately thirty thousand followers and pay him monthly to manage it. This was an unthinkable offer for us at the time, and it made clear to me that social media was a real opportunity.

I was very intrigued and immediately found a page of my own, sold it to Wave, and joined their team. At the time, I didn’t even have a personal Instagram page because I saw no value in social media, but this changed my entire mindset towards the medium.  When I left Wave to found my own venture, Cuick, I was managing @dunked (now @buckets) with over eight hundred thousand followers at the time and a team of five content creators that I directed. 

I have done social media advertising campaigns for companies such as Playline and, more recently, TikTok. A personal Instagram page that I am currently growing with my team is @gadgetings. Check it out!
