Senior Level Marketing Strategy, On Demand

“If you build it, they will come” will attract ghosts to a baseball diamond, but if you want to attract real customers to a real product, you need a smart, nimble, and actionable marketing strategy.

The marketing mix most products use at launch might not be effective when trying to scale -- yet most companies stick with what’s worked in the past, or they want to change but don’t know where to start. That’s where I come in.  

I’m an on-demand change agent. By setting ambitious but attainable objectives, supervising market research, modifying the business model (if needed), dialing in the value proposition, creating a step-by-step action plan, and training the team to be successful, I prevent the sales engine from over-revving in a low gear so it can steadily gain momentum in a higher gear.

If you build it, support it with a thorough marketing strategy that connects with customers and generates sales.

My Clients

I work with small- to medium-size companies in the technology, media, and consumer products sectors, but my methodology can easily apply to just about any company with a product or service that’s coming to market or has launched but is under-performing.

Dave is a secret weapon to so many in the digital media industry. During one particularly difficult month, he coached our team through tactical negotiations, offered up his vast network to unstick some deals, retooled our sales planning, and facilitated team off-sites. As a result, we were able to drive Real Industry to cash flow positivity and are on track for 200% YoY growth earned income.
