David J. DiNatale, Sr.
David DiNatale, recognized as one of the top online marketing experts in the country, has been often called the “Online Marketing Prophet of Profits” because of his passion to help local business owners grow their business profits using the dominating arsenal of marketing tools David has created known as the Local Online Marketing Platform™.
David is an author, expert sales trainer, speaker, entrepreneur, and self-made multi-millionaire. Growing up as a young boy in Detroit, David came from very humble beginnings. The DiNatale family, which included his dad, a mailman, his mom, and his brother and sister, resided in a small (836 square foot) 2 bedroom 1 bathroom home where David lived until his high school graduation. If you Zillow the home today it’s estimated worth is just $33,643!
At the age of 10, David’s young life was changed by a powerful book called “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. Instead of reading comic books like most young kids at that age, David read this life changing manuscript over two dozen times and began his entrepreneurial journey. That same year, David began his first think and grow rich business by establishing his own newspaper route with the Detroit News. After he established his first paper route, every time a route became available for sale near his existing route he purchased it. David kept adding to his territory until he had to hire a couple of part-time employees (his brother and a friend) to help him deliver all the newspapers each night!
David has always had a passion for helping people. He went to college to study how to become a minister. There David was a dorm supervisor where he counseled other students. He also started his own house painting business which he successfully operated by hiring on other students. He worked in several church youth groups and also met his future wife and best friend, Deborah Staggs DiNatale.
After graduate school, David pastored several churches, helping them grow substantially with his speaking and marketing abilities. Not wanting to be associated with those “rich-from-the-flock-ministers”, David looked outside the church to generate the majority of his income. He developed his passion for marketing. David attended every seminar that came to town, studying and dissecting each of their marketing models. From seminar gurus like Robert Allen, Dr. Albert Lowry, and Charles Givens, he learned the foundations of marketing. He sought out the top sales and marketing experts, learning from Jim Rohn, Zig Ziglar, Tom Hopkins, Jay Abraham, Gary Halbert, Ted Nicholas, Dan Kennedy and Tony Robbins among others.
