In my experience, companies that don’t know who they are culturally, what they want from their people, or know why they’re having problems with unmet goals, will come up with a lot of reasons to be displeased with what they have. You may be saying to yourself, “Business owners and managers always know what they want – they want to sell their products or services.” Or more specifically, they want to sell more of their products and services. But at what expense?
Ed Hagen and Dan Sills founded OMiga in St. Louis, Missouri, to tailor back-office support for small to medium-sized businesses. They found the company growing rapidly, requiring them to concentrate on running the business more often than selling, so they engaged Atomic Revenue to assist with hiring their inaugural salespeople. Read on to find out how they achieved incredible sales results that went beyond the scope of their original request.
Whenever something’s amiss in our business, we tend to point the finger at sales. Think about it: anytime revenue is down, we’re not growing at the desired rate, or we’re not getting the valuation we want before putting our business on the market, we look at sales.
Depressed revenue must be because we’re simply not selling enough. Right? Not necessarily. Sales Operations as part of Revenue Operations provides solutions beyond "closing the deal" to get to profitability goals.

"It depends" is one of the most frustrating answers to a question. What does it cost? It depends. How long will it take? It depends. Are you available? It depends. It feels like a non-answer. A cop-out. A skirting of commitment. Avoidance. But other times, “it depends” is very real. It is a conditional answer. For example, a price can be quantity dependent or tiered for the level of support needed. Delivery times can also be dependent on when a service is needed (is it an emergency?), location, and backorders.
Are you marketing to your own customers? Many B2B business leaders put this task on the back burner when it really should be a top marketing priority. Why? Your customers already know you, your products and/or services, and hopefully have had success with what you offer. Ultimately, customer marketing develops a positive customer experience (CX), resulting in customer advocacy, a core component of profitable growth. Your current customers are a wealth of hidden revenue potential!
Are you refreshing your B2B company’s go-to-market strategy (GTMS) because the market has changed, or your offerings have evolved? Maybe you’re launching a new product or service or building an entirely new line of business?
