“When we kicked off our partnership with Altus Alliance, we already had some major challenges in filling our sales pipeline. They began their work with a deep dive into research- both of our target clients and of the state of the industry. This Market Driven Baseline (MDB) research and interview process provided key insights, both to our Altus team, as well as our own. The MDB was then used to rework our value proposition and messaging tactics to best appeal to our selected vertical markets. From there, Altus worked diligently to build up a sales pipeline via email marketing, social media outreach, face-to-face interactions at industry trade shows and precisely focused sales and account management. What resulted was a healthy growth in sales and a better understanding of our core offerings and audiences. I highly recommend Altus Alliance as a revenue traction and growth accelerator for any early-stage business.“

Zealyst“Steve was the perfect person to help Zealyst move into growth phase and set the foundation for a sustainable, scalable sales strategy. We’d reached an exciting point in our company’s maturity: we had a great product and our first few customers, but our team lacked experience in enterprise sales. Steve’s expertise filled that knowledge gap, and he implemented systems and trained our team thoroughly so that the benefit of his knowledge extended long beyond our engagement with Altus. Steve set us up for success and helped break down a lot of the barriers we were facing as a young company. In addition to all the value he offered to our business, we also had a blast working with him!”

RDI Labs“As a small company looking to commercialize new search technology, we struggled to gain traction. Altus Alliance supported our efforts with relationships along with an organized and focused approach to exposing our technology to a much broader audience. The Altus team helped with strategy and developed and executed a sales campaign across multiple vertical markets and hundreds of companies. Altus’s work resulted in the successful sale of our technology portfolio. I found Altus Alliance to be flexible and a pleasure to work while delivering results we would have been challenged to achieve on our own.
