Meet William Blatter of US Trichology Institute

Today we’d like to introduce you to William Blatter.

William “Bill”, born in Ozone Park Queens New York City, grew up in New Hartford, NY, a suburb of Utica and Central New York.

Bill turned an internship, with Radio Shack computer center, into his first computer job. A few months later, he went on to selling software, to daily and weekly newspapers. At the age of 30, after moving through several software companies, Bill started his own computer and software company, Intelligent Solutions. Intelligent Solutions focused on selling software and computers to the construction, and eventually, the real estate industry.

During this time, Bill began speaking around the country on real estate software. Bill spoke at State conventions and eventually had 14 locations around the country, and eventually sold the business when the right offer came around.

Bill then went to work for a large software company called Sass, selling high-end corporate software to energy companies throughout the Northeast. He soon realized that his true passion was being an entrepreneur, and started looking for the right opportunity.

Bill had grown his first software company through his knowledge of Google AdWords marketing when Google was in its infancy. Because of this, Bill helped a friend who had a small hair loss clinic with their website and Google AdWords marketing. In exchange for his help, his friend gave him free hair loss products and Bill re-grew all of the hair he had lost in five years.

One night, Bill’s good friend Brian was complaining about his business partner not investing in growing their company. Coincidentally, Bill was lamenting about his new boss, didn’t feel his boss was honest, and no longer wanted to be associated with him. It was that night that Brian and Bill decided to start working together.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Less than a month after starting at his new company HLCC, the laser—the most important and most expensive part of their business—died and a new one needed to be purchased. Bill soon discovered that there was also a $2,000 a month expense being left off the books and his expenses, which much higher than he was led to believe. Then, to make matters worse, his good friend Brian’s son Kyle had a medical complication and died after 22 days in the hospital. Although it’s every parents’ worst nightmare to have their child die, Brian took it exceptionally hard. Brian didn’t work for six months, and then barely worked for the next two years. At that point, the two decided that Bill should buy out Brian.

After becoming sole owner, Bill turned HLCC into a global company, which is a leader in hair restoration. With the success of HLCC, which is in over 30 countries and has 300+ affiliated locations, Bill branched out the company to suit Salons, though XTC- Hair Rejuvenation Systems. XTC has hundreds of Signature Salons and thousands of Distributors. The HLCC Scripps line is branded for Doctor’s and Spas, whilst XTC is branded for Salons. Bill is also the founder of the US Trichology Institute (USTI). USTI, in the last 3 years, became the largest Trichology training institute in the world. USTI is the only Trichology Institute associated with a major medical center and has certifications from the American Medical Certification Association (AMCA).

Furthermore, Bill’s company produces low-level light laser machines and sells all types of FDA cleared lasers.

Recently, the company has expanded further, with the launch of groundbreaking Growth Factors. Growth Factors are producing results, and people are seeing significant improvement in their hair in as little as 4 weeks. The skin Growth Factor product is helping men and women see major differences in their skin. Significant results have been seen in as little as 2 weeks, though for most people, in 4 to 6weeks. Bill’s companies love helping people with hair loss and skin issues. This is shown through a 90-day money-back guarantee, for a phenomenal eyelash accelerator product, which holds the staff’s full confidence.
