Pay-Per-Click Specialist


Hello, I am Zachary Baltes

While working on my Marketing degree in school, I discovered one of my passions: content creation. It started off with a gaming YouTube channel but quickly grew into much more. Blogging, advertising, and social media are just a few elements that describe how I spent my college years. I loved every second of it (and still do).

After finishing my degree, I received a job offer working as a “Retirement Benefits Case Manager,” which is a pretentious way of saying “I help people retire.”

After learning the ins-and-outs of the business, I moved on to working for myself as an independent financial advisor. Life insurance illustrations, pension analysis reports, 401(k) trades/exchanges… you name it. There was just one thing missing – my overwhelming passion for content creation! I love to read, write, create videos, and run social media. It’s hard to talk about your comic book blog with strangers asking for your opinion on the S&P 500 for the week.

Enter The Get Smart Group. I am beyond excited to see where this journey takes me and can’t wait to share it with everyone along the way.

Outside of work, I love to read (nonfiction and fiction), workout, play video games, and go to the movies with my beautiful wife, Andrea.
