One of the biggest challenges to scaling revenue? Your salespeople only have so much time. Even if you hire the most focused people, invest in tools that boost their efficiency, and remove all distractions, there’s a limited number of selling hours in the day.
Our solution? Focus on a potentially game-changing strategy: Using one or more channel sales models. Leverage the pre-established trust in your partner brands & the efficiency they bring to give you the space necessary to focus on closing new business without sacrificing your existing users.
Core to our programs is improving operational efficiency, reducing execution risk and catalyzing growth through our rigorously developed, process based curriculum.
This curriculum is composed of six key areas of focus. Marketing, Sales, Fundraising, Finance & Accounting, Product, and Operations.
Our goal for this program is both work on your core processes and systems, and position you to maximize strategic partnerships with key market distributors.
Here are a few of the brands that our graduates have partnered with to push them from a small shop, to a heavy weight, enterprise level contender.
