While Sales and Marketing are the lifeblood of growing a business, it can be overwhelming and difficult to identify where to start making improvements.  Ownership may have been doing the work historically.  Some businesses have relied on referrals or word-of-mouth and need to consider how best to move to the next level.

Many smaller businesses have no sales team currently, or rely on over-stretched or misdirected sales efforts. Though best intentioned, these sales and marketing teams are bringing insufficient quality prospects through the door.

The reasons are many: inadequate brand awareness, insufficient sales funnel, increased competition,  misunderstanding of market opportunities or focus on the wrong kinds of customers. These problems must eventually be addressed and overcome to sustain business growth.

Strategic Response is your solution. We have worked with sales and marketing challenges ranging from a need to identify prospects, to crafting the message, to developing marketing campaigns, to creating the sales presentation, to closing the sale.

We’re not just talkers, we’re doers. We’re creative, easy to work with.

We bring big agency and market research firm
experience to small and mid-sized business owners.
