TULLAWONG State High School graduate David Krauter is no choir boy.

The former Caboolture resident has moved on to bigger things, in every sense of the word, since he graduated and moved to Caloundra.

Mr Krauter came face to face with The Terminator star as he visited Sydney for the Schwarzenegger Total Success Summit 2017.

"He really has a lot of time for people, he's not afraid to shake people's hands and let people have a photo,” Mr Krauter said.

"He made jokes on stage and was very much himself, not trying to pretend.

"Everyone see's Arnie as a movie star and the governor, but he's really invested in people reaching their goals.”

Mr Krauter's business, Websites That Sell, created the website for the star-studded event, that saw Arnie joined by the likes of former The Biggest Loser trainer Michelle Bridges and TV personality John McGrath.

Landing the contract to build the website was a massive coup for the Sunshine Coast-based businessman.

Mr Krauter, 31, first started in the industry 10 years ago as a university student, using his marketing skills to help clients double their weekly revenue.

Describing himself as a "marketer first and geek second”, the online strategist initially focused on offline marketing strategies before embracing the internet.

"We're applying the same offline principals to the online world,” he said.

"The internet is only 30 years old, it's evolving very fast and there's a lot of opportunity out there.”

Today, Websites That Sell has grown from Mr Krauter's home office to a head office in Caloundra, and three satellite offices in Brisbane, Melbourne and the Gold Coast.

Working online means while he is able to base himself in Caloundra, 80 per cent of his clients come from interstate.

"Because we have the internet now it's so easy to expand, the barriers that used to be there aren't there anymore,” he said.

"As long as you care about the clients results and you have a good work ethic in order to get things done in a timely manner, location is irrelevant.”
