The secret weapon to your business’ growth

by Chris Walter

If you’re like many companies that weathered the recessionary storm, you made the right fiscal moves by adjusting your staff, holding off on technology and infrastructure spending, and maximized your current organization to make the most of the sales environment.  We’re seeing the housing market turn the corner, stock market on the rise, and companies holding record cash.  Things are looking up, and it appears the business climate is one that can be taken advantage of.

However, like some companies, you may have waited too long to capitalize on this upturn, and the train could be leaving the station without you.

It’s not too late.  It is possible to rebuild a growth engine fast enough to take full advantage of growth opportunities, and drive revenue growth for 2013.   There is a way to rebuild the growth engine while minimizing the risk between the economic landscape, regulation, and a little pessimism about the growth opportunity.

For decades companies have been able to capitalize on boom times while creatively growing in tough business climates by leveraging a secret weapon: partnering with a sales services provider. This isn’t about manufacturers’ rep firms, but sales services that integrate with your overall sales organization and drive results in areas that would require potentially significant internal investment in capital, resources and time. Without you having to invest in and build technology, processes, training, and staff, sales services companies provide a practically instantaneous, turnkey solution to your growth investment requirements. With Q2 rapidly approaching, now is the time to make hay to bring your 2013 growth targets to life. There are many advantages to partnering with a sale services company like MarketSource:

Why Generalists Are Killing Your Sales Pipeline

In the past, the prevailing trend leaned toward generalists, the logic being if one has a “jack of all trades” sales team, they can speak to any buyer and not risk losing potential business. Once considered sound logic in the boardroom, today it is laden with issues that can cripple a sales pipeline.
