THE AMERICAN DREAM HAS BEEN OUTSOURCED…
AT KA&CO WE KNOW…THE MARKET.
…or at least it has expanded to include the entire GLOBAL MARKET.
FACTS: America is the largest investor into the Philippines national economy. Thousands of American or other global brands are thriving in the new emerging consumer economy. More than 500,000 Americans, as well as, the world’s largest American Embassy call the Philippines home.
The Power of 50-Times Earnings is real: it allows you to invest, live, tour, outsource and/or retire early at a higher-level than in the West.
Brands such as Mc Donald’s, 7/11, Kenny Rogers Roasters, FUBU, KFC, Coca Cola, Nestle, Hewlett Packard, Western Union and even The NBA have all re-invented, re-branded and re-launched as a 4-star brand –in the Philippines and Asia.
It doesn’t matter whether you are looking for simple website, product distribution, office duty outsourcing solutions, real estate or cash flow investments in the tropics, fact is that you do more, with less cash –and less stress. LET’S GET STARTED!
We engage more than 1 million people around the world every year, with our interactive and social public relations (PR) using multiple-mediums –and growing.
Rolling-up our sleeves and getting into ‘The Market’ is one of our specialties at KA&CO. We take pride in our uncanny ability to immerse ourselves in, understand, inspire, create a buzz, lead and ultimately penetrate a market –anywhere in the world.
Our Founder, Lead Executives, and over 100 team members, photographers, writers, editors, IT Specialist and even stylists have ventured to, hosted events, product launches and lived in 1st, 2nd and 3rd world countries to do it.

PR, Market R&D, Penetration & Development:
From The Shangri La, A-Class Resorts, in slums, rural provinces, we have dined and partied with, celebrated, talked, interviewed, gained data and unique understandings of nearly every minority culture in the world.
We have received numerous awards, US Government Resolution, been first-to-the-market, re-branded and ultimately achieved success for thousands of clients, cities, ventures, politicians and countries. We have promoted more than 20,000 entrepreneurs, businesses, events and not-for-profit ventures around the world. From the idea, to the first logo, first AD, uniforms, location, training and even sale, we have worked with entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams and growth-goals.
Though we are experts-in-the-field when it comes to the United States and Philippine Island social, consumer, social, business and product markets, we have launched ventures in Africa, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, as well as solely on the world-wide web.
Whatever it takes.
We have launched more than a dozen niche-market, market-specific, internationally distributed magazines, published more than 100,000 pages of press and media content, hosted sold-out Success Seminars, LIVE! ON THE SET Radio and TV Shows, video blogs, Icon interviews and product reviews. In addition, we’ve hosted thousands of consumers at more than 100 events around the world promoting anything from Remy Martin Cognac, to Cadillac, the Philippines country, minority America, political candidates, as well as global outsourcing.
“My successes and -even more significant- my failures, give me an uncanny ability to see a bad deal or smell out a fruitless investment from miles away. Saving myself, my investors and my clients time and money….
SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
“Success is for everyone.”
We have worked with thousands of small and micro business entrepreneurs over the years. One thing we have learned is that simple and proper upgrades in marketing, PR, social and print media, can double their income and give them the free and higher esteem to go beyond their expectations.
We one of Asia’s Top Beauty Suppliers came to us with their dream of implementing American-standards internally, going global and marketing to the world-wide beauty market we were excited.
After initial consultation, product testing, R&D, press releases and market studies between Asian, American, Black and other ethnic consumers. We studied their brands, price points, created additional labels and product manuals, shot more than 100 product pictures, develop ethnic AD campaigns, applied SEO and wrote over 100,000 words of copy writing.
Beautiful You International.
Asia’s first American hosted on-line beauty store.
Then, we developed and managed an alternate American-centric brand, sales and distribution platform which quickly garnered both a new local and global market share.
FYI: Success Rate. The gross investment for the project venture was earned back in gross sales within 45-days of launch.
MARKET PENETRATION & LEADERSHIP
“MINORITY SUCCESS AMERICA”
In 2002, when 100 of the top NFP’s go together at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City, MO for a crisis meeting after losing millions of dollars on US government funding do to a low ‘Success Rate’ by minority entrepreneurs they aimed to help, we were invited to sit-in -since our Founder, Kareem Jackson was one of their Alumni success stories.
The issue was “…how can minority entrepreneurs be inspired, uplifted and how can we showcase our successes within the community?” –Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation
At this NFP Summit, we debuted what would become our signature marketing tool. We presented the first Test Market Cover; a dark skinned and a light-skinned hand shaking. After further development and promotion, the final cover was released, as well as 20,000 copies of the inaugural issue.
