S.W. Anderson built a multi-million dollar business primarily through the field sales efforts of their outside sales teams. Facing increased competition from rival distributors and direct-from-manufacturer sales, S.W. Anderson needed to find more scalable ways to increase share-of-wallet within their existing customer base.

Demonstrate to S.W. Anderson the value and mechanics of a high-velocity sales and marketing approach through the design and execution of an outbound marketing campaign supported by coordinated inside sales activities.

Through the use of educational workshops, we introduced the buyer journey framework and the importance of aligning the company’s ongoing sales and marketing activities at each stage in the buyer journey.
We helped S.W. Anderson refine their go-to-market messaging, by highlighting their service and product offering differentiators in the market.
