“I was amazed on how quickly Louis grasped the challenges of our business. He put together compelling and thoughtful recommendations that addressed our most pressing issues.”
I’ve worked with start-ups to Fortune 100 companies to help them prioritize their best short-, mid- and long-term revenue opportunities and implement programs to achieve them. Results have included rapid increases in brand strength and awareness as well as leads and opportunities — sometimes with no increase in spending due to re-allocating demand generation budgets to their most effective use.

“His ability to develop a product, gain significant market share and have that recognized through a successful sale is a true accomplishment.”
I work well with sales because I’ve done sales. After selling my company I was VP of Business Development for two others. I have closed deals up to $1M at the director, VP and C levels of major corporations. Clients have included IBM, The Boston Globe, Philips Healthcare, Partners Healthcare, Endeca, Cognos, Speechworks and many other major corporations, venture-backed startups, and dozens of schools, colleges and non-profits.
“Louis is very accomplished business development executive and a genuine pleasure to work with.”
I mentor startups at MIT, speak frequently at regional and national groups, and blog on marketing and business strategy at http://www.revenueassociates.biz and for many leading business blogs. My Bullseye Marketing book was named one of the Best Marketing Plan Books of all time.
