#MakeItHappen

We’re celebrating: Our client Globalization Partners is the fastest growing women-led company in America!

Our client, Globalization Partners, is #6 on Inc.’s Fastest Growing Companies list and the fastest growing women-led business in America!

Today, we raise a glass to the success of our client Globalization Partners in celebration of their enormous growth over the past 4 years—and we take a step back to recognize the power of a well-executed marketing strategy.

GP Inc article copy

We had the privilege of working with the Globalization Partners team last year on their marketing and sales strategy. Our work helped to position this amazing company for a ramp-up to high-growth, powered by processes and systems that we helped to implement for their placement in the market. Nicole Sahin, GP’s CEO, said this after the completion of our project:

JustJump provides marketing strategies with a clear eye towards creating value for their clients. They understand that from a CEO’s perspective, the primary role of marketing is to establish credibility and generate sales; there is no “fluff” either generated or accepted with this team. If you need someone to create and execute a world-class marketing strategy, I couldn’t recommend anyone more highly than JustJump.

To see our marketing strategy coming to fruition and yielding such results is by far the best part of our job.

Talk to us about your marketing needs, and how the right strategy can push your company’s growth to the next level! Shoot us an email at miriam@justjumpmarketing.com or call at 781.366.5549.

Until then, excuse us – we have to go back to some celebratory cupcakes that needs to be consumed!

Featured on Inc.com: 5 Easy Steps to Create the Right Pricing Strategy

We did it again and got out second feature on Inc.com, discussing the importance of a pricing strategy.

You can have the best product or service in the world, but if you don’t have a solid and contextually based go-to-market (GTM) strategy and execution plan, you will fail. Marketing plays the critical role in building brand awareness, lead generation, prospect and customer nurturing. Business schools and countless business books discuss the importance of the 4 Ps (Product, Place, Price, and Promotion) as the key components to a solid marketing approach. While all four Ps are important to a founding team’s marketing strategy, the “P” I get asked the most about is pricing. Pick the right pricing model and you can transform your goals from concept to reality. Chose the wrong pricing strategy and you risk immediate failure.

Featured in The Guardian: The Power of Relationship Selling

We’re proud to be featured in a recent The Guardian article about the Power of Relationship Selling with Judy Robinett: How to manage your contacts in just 30 minutes a day.

Guardian screenshot copy

Judy’s approach to selling fundamentally changed the way we develop our business relationships. We focus on a core network of 150 meaningful relationships and stay in constant contact with them. We know what is going on in their business and their life and can make meaningful introductions for them, refer a new client or invite our network to an awesome event. Our shift to relationship selling resulted in much more happiness when it comes to selling and paid off: 90% of our business now comes from referrals, compared to 70% before we implemented this systematic approach 18 months ago.

We believe that relationship selling is the new selling and offer workshops and trainings to introduce your team to relationship selling and what it means to deliver 1% more then your competitors. Let us know if you’re interested – we’re happy to chat with you about this brand new training program. Contact us at miriam@justjumpmarketing.com or call 781.366.5549.
