How it works
Whats in the toolbox?
Got a team who are relatively new to sales? Or technical people who have also 'to do their own BD?' It can feel scary. It doesn't need to. We offer sessions to give your team the basic tools and techniques that work. We made the mistakes early in our careers and now you don’t have to!
Build a plan
Got a product or service but don’t have a plan? Calling everyone and anyone isn’t really viable (and frankly soul destroying). Having a strategy is crucial to the success of your new business efforts. We work with you to create a go-to-market plan, hold you to account and help you keep focus.
What is happening to your team’s leads? What are the metrics that matter? Is the CRM being used properly? Why are sales not happening? If you are asking yourself any of these, it’s very likely revenue is wandering out the door. Let’s pinpoint the gaps and recommend where to take action.
Life as a remote sales person and/or the sole country representative can be a lonely one. It's easy to let the momentum drop. Between us, we have years of experience at the coalface of B2B new business. Monthly 1-2-1 coaching sessions to help guide the way from good to outstanding.
Build a pipeline
Sales Director as a Service
This is all about the doing. We can give your business the hands-on commercial efforts needed to fill your pipeline. Think of this as Sales Director as a Service - SdaS. We can work together, agree what good looks like from filling your diary with meetings or booking demos to getting new customers over the line and signed up.
In the ideal situation, in BD nirvana, things are done in the right way. But the reality is not always like that. What if you’ve taken a new role and it turns out the warm pipeline isn’t quite the dream it was sold as.

You heard about this new software? Among tech vendors there can be a tendency to boil down outreach messaging to the good old fall back of: “This app will save you time and money” Here’s the thing. Nearly every bit of cloud tech out there will do that. And so, a...
